Portable Steam Cleaners Reviews
by Contributors to HomeDepot.com
Our AssessmentMost steam cleaners sold by this home improvement retailer have accumulated just a handful of owner-written reviews. The McCulloch MC1275 is the top-rated heavy-duty steam cleaner. Approximately 100 reviewers give it an average rating of 4.5 stars out of 5. They agree it's a good value, but doesn't offer miraculous results. It heats quickly and works well on soap scum and mildew in the bathroom. Floors take a lot less elbow grease then with chemical cleaners, but using this steamer requires getting down on your knees or using a mop to wipe up the residual moisture and grime. Among handheld steam cleaners, the Steamfast SF-226 is top-rated with an overall rating of 4 stars from about a dozen owners.
