TOP 5 REASONS TO CLEAN WITH STEAM Steam offers a ton of benefits over conventional cleaning. One of the most attractive reasons to use steam is that it cleans with water. Here are our 5 favorite reasons to use steam to clean and disinfect the home: 1. Steam cleans, sanitizes, and deodorizes Steam cleaning kills 99.9 percent of bacteria, germs, and dust mites. This includes E. coli, Staph bacteria, Salmonella and other micro-organisms, surface molds, bacteria, viruses, and other dirty things lurking around the house. Water has to be heated to 175 degrees for it to effectively sanitize. All HAAN units heat water over 212 degrees which is the temperature needed to create steam that kills bacteria, germs, and dust mites in just one second. Steam also cleans. It removes dirt, loosens stains, and powers through grease and grime without the elbow grease needed in traditional cleaning. This means less time scrubbing. If you have a pet (or a teenager!), steam removes odors from soft surfaces such as mattresses, carpets, and upholstery. 2. Chemical-free clean People are increasingly concerned about the possible health ramifications of chemical residue and gasses in common cleaning products. There is no need for chemicals or detergents when steam cleaning. So there are no sodium tripolyphosphates, or other hard-to-pronounce compounds, to worry about. 3. Steam is a versatile cleaner Steam can be used on just about any hard or soft surface throughout the home. It’s a great cleaning tool from floor to ceiling. Here is just a partial list of things that you can clean and disinfect with steam: sealed flooring (hardwood, tile, natural stone, laminate, vinyl), toilet and the surrounding area, countertops, oven, stovetop, pet bedding, mattresses, upholstery, children’s toys, refrigerator, pantry shelves, and laundry areas. 4. Steam cleaning is economical Cleaning with steam replaces expensive cleaners and disinfectants. 5. Steam cleaning is environmentally friendly Steamer cleaners use water, which means no toxic residue or gas will be released in the air, or find a way into our bodies or the water supply. Plus, there is no product packaging to throw away. You can wash HAAN’s Ultra-Microfiber cleaning pads your self so you can reuse them time and time again. Bonus: No bucket!
