How Steam Cleaning Can Improve Life For Allergy Sufferers
Achoo! Are you sick and tired of the sound of your own sneezing? Do your allergy symptoms drive you and your family nuts? Does it feel like you can never get a break from allergy triggers, even in your own home? If so, you may need to change how you clean your home! If you are relying on chemical cleaners to kill and remove common allergens in your home, they may not be doing as good of a job as you think. It is most consumer’s natural instinct to rely on harsh chemical cleaners but the natural cleaning power of steam is actually far superior when it comes to eliminating allergens in the home and creating the sanctuary that you need from allergy triggers.
Many allergy sufferers want to find the most effective cleaning solution for their home. But often, chemical filled cleaners do not get the job done and only introduce more potential allergens and problems into their home with chemicals. So, what is the alternative? Steam. It may sound absurd to say that water that has been heated to an extremely high temperature and turned into steam vapor could be more effective than chemicals but it is true. Water is heated to such a high temperature that it turns into a steam vapor that is then propelled through a nozzle that focuses steam exactly where you want it to go. When this steam meets any surface it kills 99.9% of bacteria. While some chemicals cleaners may offer similar statistics, they leave behind a chemical residue that then gets absorbed into skin when touched. Steam leaves behind no residue, only a clean and sanitized surface.
Additionally, steam goes where chemicals cannot. Chemicals clean the surface with which they come into contact but steam penetrates any porous surface. Steam penetrates deeply and lifts dust, dirt, bacteria and allergens up and out of a surface for the ultimate clean. This is why steam is the best form of cleaning for all surfaces including things like carpet, upholstery, mattresses and more that you would not typically be able to use harsh chemicals on. A steam cleaner, such as the Vapamore cleaner, is the ultimate multi-purpose cleaning tool for any household or business. It can move from room to room cleaning and sanitizing. Rather than needing multiple different cleaning products for various purposes, a steam cleaner can be used for the great majority of cleaning so that your entire household or business can experience a different level of cleaning and allergen removal. Allergy sufferers will rejoice as they suddenly realize they are breathing more easily thanks to the power of steam.
How Steam Provides the Best Cleaning After A Flood or Fire
When a fire or flood occurs, whether small or large, damage will be left in its wake. The damage from a flood can be significant, damaging flooring, furniture, critical structure and more. And fire damage may leave something incinerated or may leave a lot of smoke damage if actual flames do not touch something. The damage is not only upsetting but also very difficult to remedy. Cleaning up after a flood or fire may seem like a gut job – time to just rip it all out and start fresh. And, while this may be true in some cases, it is not true in all. Sometimes, after a flood or fire, restoration can be achieved through the use of a steam cleaner.
If it is determined that something can be cleaned, rather than discarded after a flood or fire, steam cleaning with extraction is an ideal method. The key to proper cleaning after a floor or fire is to do it as soon as possible, particularly in the case of a flood. If a flood occurs and anything remains moist for an extended period of time (such as more than 24 hours) it may become impossible to clean it. When a major fire occurs, even if the structure remains intact, there is often still a lot of cleaning up that is necessary. This is also true in areas that have been ravaged by wildfires. If your home was near a wildfire, yet remains standing, it could have been negatively impacted by the significant amount of smoke in the area. Cleaning it properly and restoring it to livable conditions is a daunting task. This is where a steam cleaner comes in. A steam cleaner can be used on virtually any surface because it will not cause further damage. Walls, ceilings, floors, cabinetry and more can be cleaned with a steam cleaner. The steam will permeate porous surfaces and lift dirt, debris, smoke and more up and out. Properly and promptly cleaning up after a fire or flood is critical to restoring your home or business without further damage occurring. When you own your own steam cleaner, you will be able to clean your home or business in a way no other cleaner can offer and, should flood or fire damage occur, you will be prepared to swiftly and effectively clean up so that you can preserve your home, business and belongings.
Importance of Buying From an Authorized Vapamore Dealer
We strongly encourage you to consider using a steam cleaner for your assorted cleaning needs. Whether at home, in a commercial setting or a construction site, steam cleaning is the most effective cleaning method for a variety of cleaning purposes. But, it is also important to buy a good steam cleaner from a reputable manufacturer. So often, companies with inferior products sell their steam cleaners at discounted prices but the product you get will not work as well, will not be made of high quality materials and ultimately, will not do the cleaning job you expect. Many consumers are aware that it is better to buy a high quality steam cleaner, such as a Vapamore steam cleaner, but are unaware of the pitfalls of purchasing from other retailers or individuals. The reality is, a Vapamore can only, and should only be purchased from a Vapamore authorized dealer.
You may think, what is the big deal? It is still a Vapapmore product so I know it is good. Does it really matter if I did not buy from an authorized dealer? The answer is a resounding “Yes!” When you purchase one of our products from someone that is not an authorized dealer, we at Vapamore cannot guarantee the quality of the product you are purchasing or if it really even is a Vapamore product. While many authorized Vapamore dealers do sell our products on Amazon, there are also many unauthorized dealers who will try to sell our products on sites like E-Bay or Amazon. It is critical to verify whether or not a seller is an authorized Vapamore dealer because, if not, we cannot guarantee the quality of manufacturing or the reliability of the product. We are so highly committed to quality and we only want our customers to experience the absolute best product available. Unfortunately, if you do purchase from an unauthorized dealer we are unable to provide buyer protections such as warranty, support or service. If you have already made a purchase from an unauthorized dealer it is imperative that you contact the seller immediately and make a return for a refund so that you can instead purchase from an authorized dealer. We are incredibly committed to providing our customers with the best product available, as well as the best service should they need it after purchase. This is why we cannot advise purchasing from an unauthorized dealer and strongly encourage our customers to purchase from authorized dealers who will help you find the steam cleaner you need that will stand the test of time.
Improving Pest Control with Steam Cleaning
Pest control can feel like a losing battle at times. Routine pest control, such as monthly visits, are not only costly but they fill your home or business with chemicals. Chemicals that you and your family or coworkers all breathe in or touch. While pest control chemicals have their place, more and more people are looking for effective ways to eliminate pests without the use of dangerous and harmful chemicals, especially in their living spaces. Steam is an effective multi-purpose cleaning solution but it can be used for more than cleaning, it can be used as an effective tool in your pest control and elimination arsenal. We have all heard about dreaded bed bugs. They sound terrifying and disgusting but many of us cannot imagine it happening to us. If bed bugs do happen to you, they are not only upsetting but can be very hard to get rid of. This is because chemical cleaners are not always effective at getting rid of them. Bed bugs are resilient but steam cleaning is their kryptonite.
If chemicals cannot kill bed bugs and certain other insects, how exactly is steam going to do it? Steam is, after all, only water that has been heated to a high temperature. The University of Minnesota explains how steam effectively kills and stops bed bugs in their tracks, “Steamers work by delivering lethal temperatures to where bed bugs may be hiding. Steam is very effective when bed bugs are on the surface of items and can be effective up to 3/4″ into fabric surfaces. In cracks and crevices, steam will kill bed bugs up to 2-3/8” into a gap. Use an infrared thermometer to monitor the surface temperature of the area being treated. To effectively kill bed bugs the surface temperature should be at least 160-180°F immediately after the steam brush has passed.” The reason steam is so effective at not only killing bed bugs but eliminating them going forward is that steam kills bed bugs and their eggs on contact. This means that steam cleaners that you can find at a big box store are probably not going to be sufficient. To get a steam cleaner that can effectively clean, sanitize and eliminate pests you need to purchase a commercial steam cleaner such as the Vapamore steam cleaner. Only specialized commercial steam cleaners will heat to the temperatures necessary and come with the appropriate tools to safely and effectively eliminate pests such as bed bugs.
Outdoor Cleaning with Steam
When consumers think about cleaning products they are most likely thinking of indoor cleaning products and their uses. If you need outdoor cleaning products there are specially designed products just for that. In fact, it seems like there are specially designed products for just about every room or unique surface inside and outside of the house. What is truly incredible about a steam cleaner is that it has a myriad of uses both inside and outside of the house. It is a workhorse of a tool because, while it only requires water and no chemicals or solutions, it can clean many different surfaces more effectively than any store bought cleaner could. Nobody wants to expose themselves to chemicals when trying to clean outside. And, nobody wants to spend countless hours scrubbing and significant amounts of money on specially formulated outdoor cleaning products. Especially not when it is totally unnecessary! Steam cleaning is the ideal chemical free and efficient cleaning method when cleaning outside.
Steam cleaning utilizes water that has been heated to such a high temperature that it produces a steam vapor that is propelled through a nozzle. When the steam is directed at a surface it quickly removes dirt and stains. It is able to do so in such an effective way because steam penetrates porous surfaces and lifts dirt and debris up and out. Because of the high temperature it also sanitizes surfaces. If you have a grill that you regularly cook on it often becomes a messy work surface with charred on food pieces, marinades and more. Who wants to eat food cooked on a dirty work surface that is unsanitary? We would venture a guess that nobody does. But, scrubbing with a hard brush will only do so much and can actually damage certain surfaces. Instead, steam cleaning is a safe and incredibly effective cleaning method that will preserve your grill and allow you to produce the most delicious grilled food whenever you want. Additionally, if you want to spend time outside playing or dining alfresco, your patio furniture may be a little worse for the wear and need some cleaning. Dirt, debris and more may be on the surface of your patio furniture. Rather than sitting on something that will leave stains and marks on your clothing, enjoy being outside or entertaining in style with pristine looking outdoor furniture. Once you are done in your backyard, bring your steam cleaner around to your garage and get to work cleaning in there as well. Steam cleaners can be used for automotive detailing and the cleaning of any other recreational type vehicles or toys. You can go around your garage giving everything the detailed cleaning it deserves so that you extend the life of your belongings and keep them looking their absolute best. Additionally, if you have a work area in your garage and do a lot of work on the surface you may need to give it a sprucing up with steam cleaning because garages tend to be pretty dusty and dirty. A steam cleaner is a true multi-purpose cleaning tool that will provide a supreme clean inside and outside.
