A few Steam Cleaning Tips

Steam Cleaning bathroom fittings

Faucets in washbasins often have small grooves in which dirt accumulates over time. A lot accumulates especially in the depressions in the drain. The toothpaste and the lime often create an unsightly shade in the depressions.

In order to get these grooves clean, aggressive cleaners are often used. These are not only harmful to your health, but also to the surface structure of the washbasin and the chrome plating of the fittings. With a steam cleaning device, however, such places become child’s play.

Simply use a spot jet nozzle and the dirt is simply flushed out. Then just wipe dry with a cloth and your sink will look like new. This can be done with any fittings, whether in the shower, bathtub or kitchen.

Simple and effective joint cleaning

Another nuisance is the joints in the bathroom. Especially white joints discolor very quickly due to dirt. A steam cleaner can rinse any dirt out of these joints, so no more scrubbing with toothpaste. If, however, the joints have calcified over a longer period of time, a steam mop can often no longer help.

Here you will have to work with aggressive cleaners. With regular use of a steam cleaner, however, limescale formation can be effectively prevented. A steamer can also effectively eliminate slight mold growth in joints. However, it is essential to allow the joints to dry thoroughly afterward. It is best to open the window for several minutes. In the case of strong mold infestation, no steam cleaner will help.

Here the joints must be sanded. It looks even worse with silicone joints. If the mold has settled in these for the first time, the silicone must be removed completely. Here also no mold remover helps.

Cleaning of joints and tiles

Especially in the dining area or bathroom tiles get dirty very quickly. In the bathroom, the constant fight against the lime stains is and in the dining area/kitchen against coffee stains and the same.

Especially nasty stain from soft drinks or sauces. Here you often have to scrub on your knees for a while. However, this is no problem with the right steamer . Even the joints are cleaned at the same time. For this, you need a floor nozzle and a microfibre cloth. The microfibre cloth should be changed regularly when used.

Stainless steel – extractor hoods

Stainless steel surfaces are particularly often to be found where it comes fast and often to soiling. The material is particularly resistant and easy to clean. However, this only applies if it is cleaned regularly. However, there are often inaccessible areas on the surfaces. These get dirty over time and are often a real nuisance when it comes to getting them clean again.

One finds something like this in every household. The extractor hood. Fat accumulates in this, which later results in particularly resistant fat encrustations. A steamer gets such dirt cleaned with a point jet nozzle very easy. The stainless steel surfaces can also be cleaned on a large scale with a hand nozzle. However, do not forget the microfibre cloth with the hand nozzle.
