Whether you're looking for a more eco-friendly way to clean your home, or you just want to be able to use a more effective steam mop, a steam mop is a fantastic option. This type of cleaning device can effectively remove 99 percent of stubborn stains, including grout, food crumbs, and grease. All you need is a 12-ounce tank of water and about 25 seconds to heat up the steam. With an adjustable swivel head, this product makes it easy to reach even under tables and under other furniture.
Some steam mops also come with attachments. Some of these include extra cleaning pads, which are designed for deeper cleaning. Others include attachments for ironing curtains and windows, or squeegeeing glass or windows. The extra features can make these steam mops a bit more expensive, but they will give you even more flexibility with your cleaning. A steam mop with an attachment for each purpose can be very helpful.
When using a steam mop, you should always make sure that it contains no wax or soap. Be sure to use the right steam cleaner setting, and don't allow the steam mop to linger on a spot. When cleaning laminate floors, never apply steam directly to the floor. Instead, apply it to the pad, avoiding touching the floor itself. Make several light passes over the floor to ensure that you don't leave any spots where dirt can spread.
