Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

QHow does steam pressure affect the performance of the appliance?
ASteam pressure is measured in 'bar', and broadly denotes how powerful the blasts of steam from the cleaner are. The hotter and more powerful the steam, the more effective it will be at cleaning carpets and floors.
QWhat is a 'continuous steam' function?
AAs the name suggests, this is a mode the constantly generates a stream of hot steam, rather than short controlled bursts. It is good for heavily soiled carpets or large areas of cleaning.
QWhat accessories are there available for steam cleaners?
AMost accessories for steam cleaners are additional nozzles and hoses that make it easier to clean specific types of flooring (hardwood, carpets, etc), upholstery or curtains.
QWhat are the differences between upright, cylinder and portable steam cleaners?
AUpright steam cleaners are the traditional models, pushed from the top. Cylinder steam cleaners are both smaller and squatter, and use a long flexible hose to give a far greater degree of flexibility when cleaning. Portable steam cleaners tend to have a small inflexible nozzle and very limited tank capacity - mostly useful for cleaning curtains and upholstery.

Cylinder Steam Cleaner Buying Guide

A steam cleaner is a specialised floor cleaning machine - it heats up water to produce jets of steam, which is then used to clean floors,curtains or upholstery at very high pressure. The mixture of the very hot steam and the high pressure mean that it is far more effective than a vacuum cleaner for shifting stains and dirt from floors and carpets - think of it as a super-powered version of a standard mop and bucket! There are 3 main types of steam cleaner - upright, cylinder and portable. Here we will concentrate on cylinder models:

Cylinder

This particular make of steam cleaner has a separate section (usually on wheels) for the steam generator and power, then a nozzle and cleaning head extending from the base. Unlike the upright design, the nozzle is free-moving and very flexible. This means cylinder cleaners are extremely versatile - they can be used on floors, upholstery and curtains with equal ease. However they do tend to be the more expensive option.

Water Capacity

Steam cleaners have an onboard water tank that is used to generate the steam used for cleaning. The capacity of these tanks can vary considerably - from small 0.2L handheld tanks, to enormous 2L tanks in the bigger models. The larger the water tank, the more steam can be generated before the machine needs to be refilled. This means larger machines can be used for longer at a time, and so are more efficient for larger cleaning jobs or extended use.

Steam Pressure

Steam cleaners have a pressure rating, measured in 'bars'. The higher the pressure rating, the stronger the steam will be 'pushed' against the floor or carpet. This leads to more effective, deeper cleans, meaning your carpets get cleaner, faster! We have models with pressure ratings from 1 to 5 bars.

Included Accessories

Finally, many steam cleaners come equipped with a range of different nozzles, brushes and accessories to help with different cleaning scenarios. Be aware that some of the extra accessories may come with an additional cost, but the increased utility is usually worth it. Things to look for include:

  • Specific nozzles for cleaning windows, corners and upholstery
  • Brushes for better cleaning hardwood and vinyl floors
  • Accessories such as gloves and pads to make deep cleans much easier
