Steam Cleaners: Ratings of Sources

Contributors to Amazon, As of May 2018
Credibility:

Amazon carries a wide variety of steam cleaners, even brands that no one else sells. All reviews are unique to Amazon, and owners often come back after months or years to comment on durability.

Contributors to Walmart, As of May 2018
Credibility:

Owners can rate handheld and canister steam cleaners sold at Walmart. Some steam cleaners get hundreds of reviews, others just a few. While many of the reviews are unique to Walmart, others are imported from the manufacturer's website.

Editors of Allergy Buyers Club, As of May 2018
Credibility:

Allergy Buyers Club sells products focused on helping allergy sufferers keep allergens under control. Products listed at this online retailer receive ratings from both consumers and experts. While users leave brief comments, the experts assign separate ratings for factors including steam quality and heat-up time, in addition to the overall ranking. Reviews by both experts and owners tend to be extremely thorough and detailed.

Contributors to Home Depot, As of May 2018
Credibility:

Home Depot carries a good number of steam cleaners and many accumulate a decent number of reviews, while others get just a handful. Ratings tend to be higher here than at Amazon for comparable vapor cleaners.

Contributors to Target, As of May 2018
Credibility:

Target has a good assortment of canister-style and handheld steam cleaners, but they get fewer reviews overall than elsewhere, and some reviews were originally posted at the manufacturers' websites. In addition, a search for steam cleaners brings up results for steam mops and carpet cleaners.

Contributors to Sylvane, As of May 2018
Credibility:

This online retailer specializing in products that improve air quality carries more expensive, higher-end steam cleaners. Because they tend to be pricier, there are fewer reviews here, but it's still a good source for getting owner feedback on those better vapor cleaners.

Contributors to Wayfair, As of May 2018
Credibility:

Wayfair lists a good variety of popular steam cleaners. Reviews vary in length and quality, and a few users post only star ratings with no comments. Some reviewers earned a free product in exchange for their feedback.

Contributors to Best Buy, As of May 2018
Credibility:

A search for steam cleaners at Best Buy brings up carpet cleaners and steam mops as well, but there is also a decent selection of steam cleaners in the mix. Most get just a few reviews, but reviewers can say if they would recommend the product to a friend. All reviews are unique to Best Buy.
