The home steam cleaners industry has experienced a veritable boom in the past decade, at least throughout the United States. Steam cleaners have been used for years throughout most of Europe and other parts of the world as a safer, more effective alternative to vacuuming and scrubbing. But no steam cleaning manufacturer made real inroads into the American market until machines were re-designed to work with American voltage standards.

The appeal of vapor steam cleaners combines several factors including effectiveness, ease of use, and safety. By using internal boilers, steam cleaners can reach temperatures that are hot enough not only to destroy germs and bacteria, but emulsify more stubborn substances such as grease and oil. Even home steam cleaners, which are notably less powerful than their industrial and commercial counterparts, can do this through a bit of agitation.

One of the other benefits accorded by home steam cleaners is convenience. Not only are machines virtually ready to go "out of the box," they also require minimal maintenance and are easy to store. A good model will fold tightly enough to fit in a corner, a closet, even a cramped utility shed. Better still, home steam cleaners are quieter than most vacuum cleaners and other household appliances.

Finally, carpet steam cleaners afford you and your family greater safety by avoiding chemical compounds altogether. The intensity of most steam cleaners' pressure and heat is enough to obviate the use of detergents and abrasives, many of which can irritate the eyes, nose, mouth, lungs, and skin. What's more, their reliance on water vapor alone means there's no residue left behind as there is with soap and solvents. That means you, your family, and your pets all benefit from reduced allergens and pollutants.
