AH-TCHOOO!!! One sneeze can get people to gasp and look at you like you have offended them \u2013 no thanks to COVID-19. At the same time, it might be a case of sinus or allergies caused by dust. Image by Luisella Planeta Leoni from Pixabay Want to reduce the probability of going into a sneezing fit and see people cower in fear at the thought of the unseen COVID-19 virus? Then, mummies, consider getting a steam cleaner for your home. A what? Yes, you read correctly \u2013 a steam cleaner; not some sanitising misting spray that will only kill viruses but not vanquish dust. The smokin\u2019 hot steamer can do both! Kills Up to *99.999% of Viruses and **99.99% of Bacteria Image by fernando zhiminaicela from Pixabay If we can see bacteria and viruses with our naked eye, we probably have a better shot at eliminating them quicker \u2013 unfortunately, we don\u2019t. But that does not mean we cannot eliminate them from our homes. Do you know that steam cleaners can wipe out *99.999% for\u00a0enveloped viruses such as coronavirus or influenza\u00a0and **99.99% for\u00a0all common household bacteria? You see, viruses are enclosed by an outer capsule, and bacteria by a thin membrane. The only way to kill them is by breaking that covering. And that is what steam from a steam cleaner can do. Zero Chemicals Used Image by Torsten Schon from Fotolia.com Do you know what your household cleaners are made of? Other than the ability to clean your home and leave it smelling fresh, they often include harmful chemicals like phthalates that disrupt endocrine functions (often disguised as fragrance), triclosan that promotes the growth of drug-resistant bacteria (often disguised as anti-bacterial), and ammonia, which is a strong irritant, among many others. Sometimes, products labelled as \u201cgreen\u201d, \u201cnatural\u201d, or even \u201cbiodegradable\u201d might have these harmful chemicals, too. Steam cleaners, however, only use the power of water to give you pore-deep cleanliness without the icky chemicals. Just 1 litre of water can produce 1,700 litres of steam. That is enough to clean surfaces of up to 75 square metres! Easy to Handle Image by Julio C\u00e9sar Vel\u00e1squez Mej\u00eda from Pixabay The old way of filling a heavy bucket with hot water and then mopping is hard work. Not to mention, back breaking at times. Say goodbye to the mop and bucket, and hello to steam cleaners that offer convenience and peace of mind to mummies. Unlike mops that you can only use for floors, steam cleaners can clean floors, sinks, kitchen hobs, bathrooms, windows, and mirrors. They work like regular mops, where you will have to wipe them to and fro at the areas that need cleaning but they prove to be much more powerful. Just fill in the water tank, wait a while for it to boil, and press on the nozzle to let out the steam. After you are done, just wash the steam pad. Tadaaa, you are done! Steam is Effective for Deep Cleaning Image by 6581245 from Pixabay Unlike cleaning cloths, the pressure from the steam that comes out from the funnel penetrates through cracks and pores; killing viruses and bacteria along its path. It effectively trades heat for chemicals without sacrificing strength. A steam particle is around 10 to 15 micron, and one cloud of those droplets can range from 1 to 100 micron. The microscopically small steam particles with force can penetrate into even the hardest to reach crevices and tiniest recesses to thoroughly loosen dirt particles. If you have cleaned the backsplash of your kitchen and toilet, you would know how difficult it is to clean grouts. With a steam cleaner, you are just one to two simple swipes away! Great to Rid Odours Why do some people prefer having fragrance in cleaning products? We think it is one way to eliminate odours, especially the stubborn ones. When you cannot rid of them, you introduce a smell that is stronger and more pleasant, right? Maybe \u2013 but in terms of health, it is not recommended, mummies! With steam cleaners, you can blast unpleasant odours to the abyss. From pet odours, smoke to the pee smells that seem to linger in the bathroom, these will disappear as the steam from the steam cleaners can permeate through the surfaces you clean and lift the odours.
