Detailed Guide: How to steam clean your house?

Do you want one device that can clean every surface in your house? That’s impossible, you say? But it turns out I know of something that is even better – a steam cleaner! While they may seem like a simple device, you’ll be amazed at how versatile they are when it comes to cleaning the almost endless number of surfaces in your home. From floors to windows and curtains to those hard-to-reach places like behind refrigerator doors and behind the toilet, a steam cleaner is the must-have device for every household! In this blog we will talk about how to steam clean your home properly.

Sanitize your floor:

If you have flooring in your bathroom, then it’s important to make sure that it is sanitary and clean. Bacteria will usually flourish there because of the moisture presence so you want to take extra care in cleaning the most likely places where these germs can gather like behind your toilet or in between tiles. You could use a sponge and some mild detergent, but that might not be enough. If this is the case, then consider using a steam cleaner instead because of how incredibly wet and powerful steam is at killing bacteria and removing stains! They’re also pretty easy to clean!

Clean a Stove Top

To clean the stovetop properly, it is important to make sure that one’s supplies are adequate before starting. So, you’ll need to purchase a steam cleaner (as well as other attachments such as brushes or sponges as needed) Get rid of any food spills you can use a sponge or rag and if there are any stubborn stains being left behind, don’t be afraid to use your Steam Cleaner! But be warned – always make sure to set up your Steam Cleaner on a flat surface in order for it not to become damaged and always follow instructions for proper operation when cleaning with these types of devices!

Clean your Countertops

Use your steam cleaner to remove any dirt and grime on your countertops and other dining wall decor. Use the detail attachment to take care of the nooks and crannies, cleaning behind edge guards and even the seams where two countertops meet. Once this is done, use a clean rag to dry off your counters. Never use this popular product around granite countertops, as it can damage tiles irreparably


Of all the things that I have cleaned with my steam cleaner, the one thing that had a huge impact on me was the grout on our kitchen floor. We had no idea how dirty it was before because it did not look like anything had even been there at first. But after giving it a good cleaning, we found that its original color was a lot lighter than what we saw! It was exciting to see and very satisfying to see how great the kitchen looked when we were done. To see for you, check out THESE before and AFTER pictures of what this steam cleaner can do!


It’s not easy trying to clean out the tracks of your windows. This area is always so difficult to get into and you usually need some kind of brush that can fit right in the cracks to loosen up all of the dirt, hair, and other things stuck in there. However, many people don’t realize that a steam cleaner can provide this same service that one normally needs an old toothbrush for! Normally it takes me 10 minutes at least to get each window track clean with a wide tooth comb or scrubbing tool but with a steam cleaner I can stream my tracks clean in no time at all. Now, I’ve finished cleaning every window track in my home in record time using this method! Needless to say that I’m impressed because now I’ll never have to worry about stubborn gunk building up on those windows again!

Shine your floor

It’s not just carpets that steam cleaners can be great for! Steam cleaners can be used for a variety of different surfaces and objects. One of the most popular uses for steam cleaners by consumers today is to clean tiles and floors. Tile floors are a lot easier to maintain when you own a steam cleaner because the heat from the steam cleaner kills bacteria, odors, and germs which builds up over time giving your tiles a longer lifespan (however you will still have to mop them at least once every six months normally). Many people prefer tile floors, especially if they recently had hardwood floors before.
