What Can You Steam Clean?

What Can You Steam Clean?

By Justine Harmes, HAAN

Haan steam cleaningSome may have the misconception that not using chemical solutions means that your surface is not clean and sanitary. On the contrary, you can achieve a natural, green clean by using steam. Yes, you did read that right -- STEAM. Steam kills 99.9% of germs and bacteria, dust mites, bed bugs, mold and mildew when heated up to 212°F. The heat that is created also breaks down any dried on dirt and stuck-on stains.

So, what can you clean with steam? With the wide range of light weight steam cleaners HAAN offers -- floor steamers, handheld steamers, multipurpose steamers, scrubbing steam cleaners, to turbo steamers -- the possibilities are just about endless.
Floor steamers can be used on sealed hard surfaces such as tile, laminate, hardwood and even carpet. With the addition of the Multiforce line and CR-motion technology, steam cleaning is taken one step further, outdoors. This 5-in-1 machine can steam, scrub, buff, deep clean and sanitize a wide variety of surfaces such as sealed hard surfaces like tile, laminate and hardwood, carpet, stone, decking, sidewalks and more.

Handheld units and Multipurpose units make it easy to take steam cleaning above the floor to soft surfaces like bedding, chairs, couches, stuffed animals, curtains and pet beds to hard surfaces such as countertops, stoves, faucets, toilets, toys, door knobs and trash cans.
As you can see, steam is truly a versatile cleaner.
