Dangers of Using Steam Cleaning on Sensitive Surfaces

Steam cleaners have completely revolutionized the way we clean a range of surfaces, including tiles, kitchen floors, furniture, window sills, appliances, vehicle interiors, and more. Steam cleaning works well on these surfaces because they are capable of withstanding high temperatures. Though many people wonder, is it safe to steam clean wallpaper, pressed paper, cardboard, sealed hardwood, silk fabrics, and woolen clothing that are incapable of handling high temperatures? Will the super hot steam ejected by a vapor steam cleaner do more harm than good to such heat sensitive surfaces?

Let us take the case of unsealed hardwood floors, for instance. In general, experts advise against using a floor steam cleaner on unsealed hardwood floors, as well as other delicate surfaces. In such cases, the use of a high-temperature steam cleaner machine can damage the heat-sensitive surfaces.

If you are unsure of whether it is safe to use a floor steamer or vapor steam cleaner on your floor or other surface, test a small area before proceeding. This is known as patch testing. If you are still unsure, it is best to contact the customer service department of the company who manufactured your wood flooring.

If you know that you will have to handle the cleaning of heat sensitive surfaces before you purchase the machine, speak with one of your supplier's well-informed product specialists to match the right cleaning machine to the application at hand.
