Used correctly, steam cleaning is a natural and effective way to remove stubborn dirt and stains. Plus, a steam cleaner kills 99.9% of household germs, including salmonella, E. Coli and Staphylococcus, as well as dust mites and surface mold. Once the water reaches 175-degrees F, it will sanitize surfaces effectively and many home cleaners reach up to 245-degrees F.

Personally, I’d recommend a steam cleaner over a mop any day, you ask why? That’s because using a mop is much harder trying to clean the hard stains off the floor, as a steam cleaner as constant hot steam coming out which is much effective when it comes to cleaning the hard areas.
