With rapid advancements in making these versatile machines more compact, more efficient and more eco-friendly, it’s easy to see why the demand for steam cleaners is higher than ever.

Environmentally friendly

Steam cleaners are one of the most environmentally friendly methods of cleaning, due to it using purely water at a high heat to remove muck and dirt. The lack of potentially harmful cleaning products in its use makes steamers stand out from alternative methods of cleaning, with zero waste produced from use and a lasting clean that will not need to be repeated for weeks.

Moreover, the use of water is limited to a very small amount, with most steam cleaners typically using only 1 litre of water for about two hours running time – enough time to clean a whole floor!

Able to access difficult to reach areas

Offices will always have hard-to-reach areas, with awkward corners and small spaces that can quickly accumulate dirt and grime with a heavy footfall. A further reason steam cleaners are an increasingly popular cleaning tool then, is that they often come with an array of attachments – enabling it to access even the hardest to reach areas.


Steam cleaners combine efficient cleaning with user-friendly portability, meaning that these machines no longer come in industrial proportions. They can be used on larger surface areas to tight corners and gaps in tiles, and are easily transported from room to room in larger premises.

Effective cleaning

The high temperature output of steam onto surfaces dissolves dirt and stains quickly and efficiently, making steam cleaners a highly effective method for cleaning floors that have a high footfall where grime is likely to accumulate quickly.

This cleaning process means commercial floors and offices can be made clean and hygienic, and in a short space of time which is vital for a busy working environment.


With it’s portable functionality and high-efficiency, steam cleaning can be applied to more than just flooring. It is an effective method for maintaining blinds, clothing, and even kitchen appliances such as ovens!

This versatility makes steam cleaning equipment the ideal multi-use machine, eliminating the need for different cleaning products for every item of the premises.
