Home Steamers - Types of Steam Cleaners and Other Steam Appliances

There are several types of steamers designed for home use including steam cleaners, steam irons, steam carpet cleaners and steam generators, just to name a few.  Some are designed for cleaning with steam, others simply use steam in delivering their main function. 

It can be confusing shopping for a steam appliance as the term is fairly general in meaning, but this list should clear it up for you and provide a better understanding of what each type of steamer is commonly used for.

Cleaning is the main function of a few types of steaming appliances but what to clean will vary with each machine depending on design and accessories.  I've also included some cleaning tools that although may not actually generate steam, usually have water heaters and are often referred to as steam cleaners.

There's nothing like steam for loosening dirt and grime, making it a very handy cleaning tool when it comes to reducing effort and cutting down on cleaning time.  It should be noted that in order to produce steam, heated water must reach a temperature of  ----.  In other words, cleaning machines with water heaters may or may not achieve a sanitizing steam.  You should confirm this feature before buying.
