The Future of Steam Cleaning


The demand for steam cleaners is currently at a very healthy level, as more and more people turn to these products to assist them with their domestic or commercial cleaning. There are a range of brands that are creating effective and powerful steam cleaners at a range of prices, from £50 to over £2,300. It can be difficult to know where to start when choosing a steam cleaner to buy, so we have taken a look at six of the best steam cleaners on the market to help you make your decision.


1.       Shark Sonic Steam Cleaner – £119.99:

For more stubborn stains, this cleaner from Shark claims to be the answer. The oscillating motion performed by the head of the cleaner means that the floor can be scrubbed at a rate of 10,000 times per minute. Such frequency should easily deal with resilient stains.

2.       Lakeland Handy Steam Cleaner – £50:

Handheld steam cleaners can be very useful for reaching those stains that an ordinary steam cleaner can’t get to. However, it’s important that the strength and power of the machine is not sacrificed for mobility. This handheld cleaner from Lakeland ensures that you gain the ability to reach those difficult stains without losing the ability to remove them.

3.       Bissell Lift-Off Steam Cleaner – £129.99:

The Bissell Lift Off cleaner combines handheld cleaning with the ability to tackle those larger areas. It can be converted from a mop to a handheld device easily, meaning you don’t have to choose between the flexibility of a handheld and the strength of a standard cleaner. At £130, it is quite pricey, but remember; you’re getting two cleaners in one!

4.       Hoover SteamJet Dual-Head Steam Cleaner – £99.99:

This offering from Hoover comes with two cleaning facilities. As well as the floor head, which is the standard head for all steam cleaners, the SteamJet also comes with a triangle bristle head, which is designed to tackle dirt that just won’t budge.

5.       Black & Decker 2-in-1 Steam Cleaner – £149.99:

Rivalling the Hoover and Bissell cleaners, Black & Decker’s 2-in-1 cleaner comes with an ‘auto –select’ button, which allows you to adjust the cleaner depending on the type of surface you are cleaning. This means you avoid the hassle of fitting different attachments to your cleaner, allowing you to get the job done as quick and efficiently as possible.

6.       Kärcher SC1.020 – £99.99:

Equipped with a ‘fast heating’ system to reduce waiting time, the Kärcher cleaner has several helpful features to make your cleaning easier. Adjustable steam levels allow you to alter the strength of your cleaner in relation to the surface you’re cleaning. It also has a childproof lock, to prevent any small hands getting near the steam!



These are six of the top steam cleaners available on the market at the moment. Each one has innovative features, from size and flexibility to power and speed. As you can see, the prices vary, with the handheld cleaners obviously being cheaper than full size products, albeit having less power than their bigger counterparts. The prices of the full-size cleaners may seem like a lot of money, but you can’t underestimate how useful a steam cleaner can be!
