Whoever named this unit as it is surely had it spot-on! There is no better term to describe this model other than multi-purpose. With 15 accessories included in the whole unit, you can be sure to find one that would take care of any surfaces you may have in your home, and also with any problematic stains you would want to get rid of. If you are looking for an all-around cleaner that doesn’t need any other substances other than clean water to get going, then you are looking at the right unit. Read on!
The Steamfast SF-370 Multi-Purpose Steam Cleaner runs on pressurized steam, and it can generate up to 1500 watts of power. The thing I really liked about this device is its huge capacity tank: with a 45-ounce water tank, this baby could go on for 45 straight minutes powered on! Similar size to the Shark Steam Pocket Mop. I really like cleaner this since I hate those long sink trips just to refill the water tank. See, the unit actually has a steam trigger, which means you can actually stop the stream of steam when you have to move the unit up and down the stairs, but you can also lock the steady stream of steam if you have to clean large portions of surfaces at a time.
Best price for Steamfast SF-370 Multi-Purpose Steam Cleaner
At 8.4 pounds, the Steamfast SF-370 Multi-Purpose Steam Cleaner is also one of the lightest steam mops out there, which would save you a lot of back pain when you have to lug it around. Now, as far as the steam it can produce, you only need tap water to get this device going. It can generate steam up to two hundred degrees, which is exactly what you need to deal with deep stains that have been in your surfaces for the longest time. Now you might be worried that this much heat can damage surfaces, but let me assure you that this unit is perfectly safe to use for almost all types of surfaces, especially in laminated ones. Wooden may be a little sensitive, so I suggest that you try it out on a small area first to make sure that it is actually safe for the finishing.
As for the included accessories, here is a list: mop head, microfiber pads, extension wands, squeegee, jet nozzle, corner tool, scrub tool, brass utility brush, and nylon utility brushes. Out of all these accessories, I like the corner tool best since it lets me reach into tight spots, corners, and undersides, which no steam mop I tried before has ever let me, do. See, most steam cleaners have wide heads, which means they cannot fit easily in corners. So, with the help of the corner tool, you can actually just clip it on to deal with tight spaces.
While this may not be the most affordable steam mop out there, it actually is worth it since most of the cheaper units suffer from bad quality that might cause you to need to replace it after a relatively short time. With this powerful unit, you can actually use it for a very long time before it needs to be replaced. Now, as far as the accessories go, most of them are actually washable and can be used repeatedly, like the microfiber pads. I simply toss these pads in the washing machine after I have used them, and they come out looking and smelling brand new all over again, and the nice thing is that the machine doesn’t even damage them a little bit!
Another thing is that the Steamfast SF-370 Multi-Purpose Steam Cleaner is not as user-friendly as I’d actually want it to be. For a stubborn woman like me who hates long instructions, it actually took me a while to decipher all the included accessories to find out which one I actually needed. It also took me a while to figure out how the whole unit works, but as soon as I willed myself to actually read and understand the instructions, I realized that it was really easy to put the device together and get it to start working! See, as soon as you fill up the water tank and plug the unit in, you would need less than a minute to warm the Steamfast SF-370 Multi-Purpose Steam Cleaner up, fast than its older model the Steamfast SF-275 Canister Steam Cleaner. It might take a little longer than that to cool it down, but the size of the device actually makes it convenient for storage even if you only have a small compartment or a tight space to store the unit in.
