Best Vapor Steam Cleaners for Cleaning Bathrooms

Best Vapor Steam Cleaners for Cleaning Bathrooms
When purchasing the best vapor steam cleaners for cleaning your bathroom or for commercial cleaning tasks, look for the following features:

1.Temperature: High steam temperatures provide greater cleaning power. Heat helps break down chemical bonds that hold dirt molecules together. For cleaning tiles, kitchens, and bathroom fittings, a steam cleaner with temperatures up to 386°F recommended. While steam cleaners can also spot clean carpets, it is recommended to use a lower temperature level to ensure the carpet or rug is not damaged during cleaning. Heating time should not be longer than 15 minutes.

2.Pressure level: Commercial steam cleaners have higher pressure levels than machines meant for home use. The best vapor steam cleaners have pressure levels between 75-150 psi. Daimer®’s steam cleaners, such as the KleenJet® Pro Plus 200S are used for light commercial applications as well as for cleaning bathrooms in homes and residential areas.

3.Parts quality: The best vapor steam cleaners have stainless steel parts, which are more durable, stronger, heat enduring, and corrosion resistant than aluminum parts. Boilers should be ideally made of stainless steel to prevent loss of pressure during prolonged operation. Daimer®’s boilers carry a lifetime warranty to help reduce the cost of replacement. Daimer® steam cleaners also feature removable heating elements for cost effective replacement.

4.Detailing tools: The best vapor steam cleaners have ergonomically designed detailing brushes, squeegees, and other tools for maximum productivity and easy cleaning. The KleenJet® Pro Plus 200S, for example, comes with brushes of various shapes and sizes for cleaning different surfaces, including corners, bends, and curves. There is a special squeegee for cleaning windows, mirrors, and other glass surfaces. Nylon detailing brushes are used for softer surfaces including painted surfaces. Brass brushes are ideal for cleaning fittings such as faucets, handles, toilets, and so on. Steel brushes are the hardest and they should be used for cleaning nonporous tiles, ceramic tubs, and similar surfaces.
