(BPT) - Do you feel like you're constantly cleaning and it's never enough to stay on top of all the dirt, grime and germs? Do you wonder how professional cleaners get everything so sparkling and fresh in such little time? The trick is to work smarter, not harder, and one of their best-kept secrets is utilizing the natural cleaning power of steam.
Steam is a surprisingly powerful cleaning tool, with the ability to break down tough grime and disinfect virtually any surface. Plus, water is pure and natural, so you don't have to worry about harsh cleaners with chemicals that may be bad for you and the environment. Here are the top reasons why many people use their steam cleaner as much as (or more than) their vacuum once they realize everything it can accomplish:
1. Steam kills bacteria and viruses
The pandemic caused people to become acutely aware of how easily germs can spread and the desire grew to regularly disinfect commonly touched surfaces. Steam is scientifically proven to kill bacteria and viruses because they cannot survive the heat. This allows you to sanitize, disinfect and clean in one simple step. For example, the Dupray NEAT Steam Cleaner easily removes dirt, grease and stains while killing 99.9% of bacteria, viruses, pathogens, bedbugs, mold and other undesirables.
2. Steam works almost anywhere
Steam can clean any type of flooring, including tile and grout lines, but it can be helpful in many more ways as well. It can tackle tough messes like burned-on grease in your oven or grill, heavy stains in furniture and upholstery, and grime in showers or bathtubs. It's also great for cleaning your vehicle's interior. It can sanitize your infant's crib and your fitness equipment. Steam is also great on softer surfaces, such as sanitizing mattresses, children's toys and pet furniture, especially those items that can't be put in the washing machine. Not to mention, you can use steam to get into all the nooks and crannies that are otherwise hard to reach.
3. Steam cleaning improves air quality
Americans spend approximately 90% of their time indoors, where the concentrations of some pollutants are often up to five times higher than typical outdoor concentrations, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Because steam cleaning is all natural, it's a great way to help improve indoor air quality. Steam cleaning helps eliminate dust, bed bugs, pet dander, pollen, allergens, mold and more. Cleaner air means a healthier home so everyone can breathe better, day and night.
4. Steam eliminates most other cleaning supplies
How many bottles of cleaner do you have in your home and how much money have you spent on them? By investing in a steam cleaner you eliminate the need for many of those bottles, not to mention their toxins, helping you save money and green your home. Steam cleaning is environmentally friendly so you can feel proud to have a healthier, eco-smart home.
5. Steam saves time and is so satisfying
Steam cleans fast and dries even faster, which means less time scrubbing. This is why professionals use it in commercial and hospitality settings. The Dupray NEAT Steam Cleaner comes with 17 premium accessories so you can clean almost anything, from vast surfaces to tiny nooks and crannies. Learn more at Dupray.com.
