• <h4 class="dechead">On One Hand: Chemical-Free Cleaning

    Steam cleaners are a good way to clean some of the most stubborn stains without having to rely on powerful chemical solvents. By using superheated steam to break down stains and residue, a steam cleaner allows you to make short work of messes that might have seemed permanent.

    On the Other: Work Slow and Take Care

    It can take a few passes for a steam cleaner to deal with stains and odors that have soaked deep into fabrics and carpets. Also, the temperatures involved in true steam cleaning can be hazardous, so you should be careful when using a steam cleaner to avoid burns.

    Bottom Line

    While a steam cleaner is fantastic for certain applications, there are just some jobs where it's simpler to do things the old-fashioned way. Still, a steam cleaner makes an excellent addition to any home cleaning arsenal.
