CLEAN ANYTHING

Steam cleaners can be used to clean most any durable surface, including:


Sealed hard flooring, pet stains and odors, window coverings, sanitize mattresses, freshen clothing, unclog drains, clean tile and grout, disinfect toys, clean toilets and kitchen appliances, and much much more.

HOW DOES STEAM CLEANING WORK? 


Water from the fill reservoir is drawn into the high efficiency boiler, where it is super-heated to over 260 degrees. The water vapor, or steam, created is pressurized – which allows for penetration of surfaces to loosen embedded grime that cleaning rags, cleansers and brushes cannot remove. Vapor steam is very hot. The heat causes the physical bond between surfaces and grime  to weaken, which makes clean up much easier.
