Searching For a Better Steam Mop than the Traditional Mop You Already Have

If you are still relying on a mop and bucket to get your bare floors clean, you really might want to consider this outdated and ineffective floor cleaning method.  If you haven't heard much about steam mops before, you will want to take some time to learn more now because a steam mop really is superior to the traditional mop you are using to get your floors clean.

Steam mops don't just clean floors, they also work to disinfect them with the heat produced from the steam.  This gives you floors that aren't just clean from dirt and debris, but are deep down clean by being free of the germs, dust mites, and bacteria that can case health problems for you and your family.


Choosing a Steam Mop

To get all the benefits a steam mop can offer, you will want to choose one that reaches temperatures hot enough to disinfect.  This means you will need to choose a steam mop that reaches temperatures of at least 220 degrees Fahrenheit.  You would expect all steam mops to get this hot since they all promote the ability to clean and disinfect your floors with the use of water and heat, but that is not the case.  Some just don't heat the water up as much as is needed.  So while you are getting a clean floor, you aren't getting the sanitizing benefits of a steam mop as well.

Here are a few mops that are worth buying if you want a steam mop that cleans and disinfects.  Because of their high heat and nice features, they are some of the best steam mops you can buy:


Eureka Enviro Steamer - This mop is affordable and has a large tank.  While it's high profile mop head can be a little cumbersome at times, it has an adjustable handle and swivel head so it is fairly easy to push.  This is a customer favorite.


Haan Steam Mop - The original Haan Steam Mop, model FS20, also gets hot enough to have disinfecting benefits.  This mop has an attachment tray that allows you to use it on carpets and other fabric surfaces.  Many people enjoy this feature since it makes killing dust mites in your home easy.  Downside, it also has a high profile head since the water tank is located there and the tank doesn't hold a lot of water so you will have to refill every 10 or 15 minutes.


Monster Steam Mop - If germ killing is the single most important feature in a steam mop for you, than you will want to look at the Monster.  This steam mop gets super hot, 266 degrees F.  More than hot enough to kill any germs or bacteria lingering on your floors.
