I get nothing but pure delight from cleaning my floors. My favorite part is removing the pad at the end of my cleaning spree and beholding all that dirt and grime. Sometimes I’ll do it again just to see the pad come out clean. I’m pretty sure that classifies me as an extreme cleaner, a title I’ll gladly accept. While I’ve relied on my trusty spray-and-go mop for years, I’ve recently been made aware of a steam cleaner making waves on Amazon that I’ve determined is certainly worth a try—and a buy.
The PurSteam 10-in-1 Steam Mop Cleaner (BUY: $89.99; amazon.com) is the number one steam cleaner on Amazon and comes with a whopping 13,240 reviews and counting. What does that tell me? That I need to add it to my cart, immediately.
The lure of a steam cleaner verses other tools that require chemicals is that a steam cleaner is free and clear of chemicals, instead relying on steam to thoroughly disinfect and sanitize. For that reason, many households with children and animals opt for steam cleaners over other varieties, but it doesn’t come without its own hazards. Just make sure you keep pets and children occupied elsewhere while in use because that steam heat is no joke.
You might have noticed PurSteam’s mention of 10-in-1. That’s a whole lot of bang for $89.99. It’s said to work on a variety of surfaces including marble, tile, stainless steel, and even carpet. I know, I too have never heard of a floor steamer that works on carpet, but the brand alleges it manages to kill 99.99% of germs and bacteria on all those surfaces and more—no chemicals required. All you’ll need is 340mL of tap water and 30 seconds-worth of patience while the machine heats up. From there, choose the appropriate nozzle, brush, or pad for the job at hand. The microfiber towels are machine washable and reusable, but you can buy more on Amazon if needed.
Over 6,500 Amazon reviewers have given the PurSteam 10-in-1 Steam Mop Cleaner a full five stars. One writing, “The grout tool is amazing! Using virtually no effort, this steamer blew out the dirt completely. The photos and video don’t do justice to the results.” Another reviewer praises its ease, “The mop is very versatile and functional. The mop head pivots and is big enough to do a room in a short amount of time, and small enough to fit in tight spaces.” All this to say, I’m sold on my next cleaning purchase.
