STEAM MOP BUYING GUIDES
Steam mop advantages
Steam mops have become very popular products over the years for a couple of reasons. Firstly, you do not use any added detergents to achieve a great clean. Secondly, you are cleaning your floors at a very high temperature, hotter that you get simply from the hot tap. Therefore, you are cleaning and sanitising at the same time, leaving little chance of any unseen bacteria growing or multiplying.
They will remove dirt and grime better than a mop and bucket due to the high heat of the unit.
Features to consider on a Steam Mop
Make sure the water tank on the unit is sizeable. Don’t go for the smallest one as you will be filling the tank more times than you care to during a clean.
If you are a little shorter or taller than most, you may want to make a unit with a telescopic wand a priority. This will alleviate any back problems that may occur from slouching over your steam mop.
Power cord length
A short power cord may make cleaning more problematic. When working on a room, you want to make sure you can cover the whole area in one clean, without wasting extra time, having to unplug and relocate each time.
Ready to use indicator
It is handy to know when your mop is hot enough ready for use. A clear visual guide will save you time having to manually check if it is hot enough or not.
Check if the model you want has the accessories you need.
