Looking for an easier way to clean your home?
Just short of getting on your hands and knees with a sponge and some soap water, steam cleaners and mops can be one of the best ways to keep the surfaces in your home nice and clean.
Steam cleaning has enjoyed a boost of popularity in recent years. Sir James Dyson, the man behind the eponymous Dyson company, once claimed that mopping is simply "moving dirty water around, leaving floors soiled". But can a tried and tested method used by so many across the world really be that bad?
Here we tell you everything you need to know about steam cleaning so you can decide for yourself - and we've even added some of our favourite models guaranteed to get the job done.
What is a steam cleaner and how do they work?
The first thing to know is there are two different types of steam cleaner you should be on the lookout for.
The first is a 'cool' steam cleaner which makes steam without boiling the water inside. These models typically contain more water. The second is a 'dry' steam cleaner, which boils the water inside to make the steam. These versions of the steam cleaner contain less water but can become extremely hot.
What can you use a steam cleaner on?
Steam cleaners can be used on practically any surface in the home, including windows, grouting, carpets and rugs, mattresses, clothes, mirrors, curtains, the bathroom floor and much more.
Because steam cleaners don't make use of any other cleaning solutions (instead using steam to lift the dirt, dust and grease), it can also be kinder to your surfaces, stopping premature damage and erosion from chemicals.
