A Guide to Various Types of Steam Cleaners

Various Types of Steam Cleaners
When searching for steam cleaners, you will find a number of different models with a variety of features. Choosing the correct machine can be difficult if you do not understand the functions included with the machine or which ones you will need. The follow is a brief overview of the different types of steam cleaners available.

How Many Types of Steam Cleaners Are There?
Regardless of added technologies, a steam cleaning machine has the same basic set-up. These machines eject high temperature water onto the surfaces to be cleaned. The output temperature can be as high as 386°F to dissolve stubborn residues. Care should be taken while using these machines. If these machines are used to clean a soft surface or a surface that cannot withstand high temperatures, the surface may end up destroyed.

There are also steam pressure washers and steam carpet cleaners available. However, it is important to note these are not steam cleaners. Steam pressure washers use wet steam that can leave a surface very wet after cleaning. Steam carpet cleaners do not actually use steam when cleaning. They heat water to high hot water temperatures up to 210°F to effectively remove dirt and stains from carpets.

What features are available?
Steam cleaners come with a variety of different technologies and features. Machines with HEPA filters help trap dirt and allergens and to purify indoor air. Anti-bacterial technology, such as Daimer®’s ATIS® technology, can eliminate more than 99 percent of germs and bacteria on the surface. This is especially useful in places such as restaurant kitchens and hospitals where germs must be kept to a minimum. In addition, machines with attached vacuums are helpful when eliminating left over residue from the surface. There are also gum removal steam cleaners as well as those equipped for removing tile and grout.

Daimer®, a top supplier of cleaning products, offers all of these kinds of steam cleaners. For more details, visit www.daimer.com.

Steam Cleaner Applications – Sanitizing Refrigerators

Steam Cleaner
Steam cleaners have a variety of applications in homes and commercial areas. One of the major reasons for the popularity of steam cleaners is their ability to clean without using harmful, toxic chemicals. Therefore, these machines are often used in homes, restaurants, commercial kitchens, hotels, and other places where food is processed or handled. Food storage areas such as bins, refrigerators, pantries, and iceboxes should be regularly cleaned using steam cleaners.

Removing Dirt

Steam cleaners remove tough dirt, including dried food stains, congealed proteins and sugars, grime, and similar substances from refrigerators. This residue can be very difficult to remove without steam cleaning. Dirt and decayed food matter in the refrigerator can cause food-borne infection. To remove these residues completely, advanced steam vacuum cleaners by Daimer® dissolve deposits and extract them for complete removal.


Steam cleaning machines can help remove odors from the refrigerators. Steam penetrates every corner of the fridge and removes grime, stains, and decaying food crumbs. Because steam cleaners eliminate the root of the problem, odors are minimized and reduced.

Removing Molds and Bacteria

Refrigerators not set at the right temperature, or loaded with food items, become home to harmful fungi and bacteria. Bacteria such as Salmonella and E.coli, as well as molds such as Aspergillus cause many types of illnesses. To eliminate germs from your refrigerator, use a steam cleaner equipped with anti-bacterial technologies. Daimer® offers steam cleaning machines, such as the KleenJet® 1000CVP, that feature ATIS® anti-bacterial technology proven to eliminate more than 99 percent of germs and bacteria on the surface.

Despite the advanced cleaning power of steam cleaning machines, additional power may be needed for challenging applications. For such applications, Daimer® retails Eco-Green® non toxic cleaning chemicals designed to safely increase the power of virtually any cleaning machine. These formulas eliminate the need for toxic chemicals that may leave residue in the freezer. One such green cleaner, Eco-Green® Sub Zero Freezer Cleaner, helps safely eliminate grease, oil, and other organic matter without freezing. These chemicals are safe for many surfaces and will not corrode the machine, leave behind harmful residue, or endanger the operator in any way.
