About Steam Cleaners
The household steam cleaner is an electric-powered floor device that heats water in its boiler under regulated pressure until the hot water vapor has been superheated to 250-300°F and ready for release through an attached hose and nozzle with a very small aperture. Once water is converted into vapor, its volume raises by a factor of 1600 times. Thus, a tiny amount of water makes a copious quantity of steam.
Once pressurized, superheated steam hits a surface,
It expands right away, blasting dirt and grime, while dissolving them in a small amount of steam that liquefies on the surface for an easy wipe with a cloth. Upon release through the nozzle, the heat of the steam is about 220°F, which is more than hot enough to eradicate bacteria, viruses, molds, and micro-organisms.
