"Fantastic Steam Cleaner"
Pros: Easy to use, Good build quality
"The Polti Vaporetto steam cleaner is an effective way to hygienically clean, without the use of harsh chemicals. This appeals to my family a great deal, as living in a busy household with two young children, its very useful, to lift daily spills and marks from the floor, and also any other surfaces around the house. It strong enough to be used on very stubborn dirt too.
This steam cleaner is easy to set up, with simple click and lock mechanisms on each attachment. It feels a little heavy at first, but I got used to this quickly. Each part is made from sturdy plastic and is not at all flimsy like other cleaners we have used. Its obvious that its strong and built to last.
Its easy to manoeuvre around the floor as it has small wheels attached, meaning you can get round each room easily. When you need to use a different attachment, its a simple click to add it. The Polti Vaporetto comes with many different attachments. Here's how we got on:
We have laminate flooring in most of the rooms in the house, so the Vaporetto is extremely useful for a quick clean of the whole house. The main attachment is a large brush, that cleans the floor very quickly. On delicate surfaces, it needs a cloth attached to it (using the side clips), as it would definitely scratch if you didn't, due to the thick bristles. There is a cloth included, but it is too small to attach to it, and is very thin. For this reason, we have used our own, thicker cloths. We have found that it lifts marks very easily and gives an overall clean, and brighter look to the floor. The steam dries quick, which is great for a house with children who do not want to wait to get back into the room! No risk of slipping on water!
There's a smaller brush attachment for those areas that are harder to reach. I used this on the tiled bathroom floor, where I needed to move around corners. I used the middle steam setting (3) but for different cleaning needs you can adjust the steam output. Its simple to do, with 5 levels, that the button twist to. It left it looking clean! I really like the ease of use of the Vaporetto. The smaller brush can also be used on fabrics and car linings, and also small windows with the small cloth covering it.
There is a window cleaning tool, that again attaches very easily. It comes in very useful for the sticky hand prints from the children. We got to use this tool straight away, and were very impressed! I used the first steam setting to test it out at first, and it was effective enough. The window was left cleaned and streak free! Not having to use a separate cleaner, is such a bonus!
The Polti Vaporetto also comes with the steam nozzle which allows a powerful jet of steam to contact surfaces that need a stronger clean. Again, I have used this in the bathroom, for dirt around the taps and plugs. It removed this very well. I think this tool would also be very useful on bathroom tiles where dirt/mould has built up. Furthermore, you can add a small brush to the nozzle, for very stubborn areas. All of these extras can be kept safe inside a bag that comes in the box.
Overall, I am impressed with this steam cleaner, as is my partner. Knowing that surfaces are left totally hygienic and germ free, due to the steam, is great peace of mind. Also, not having to use strong cleaners that contain many harsh chemicals, is fantastic! You know that surfaces will not be damaged, there are no strong smells, no risk of the children coming into contact with them, and also great for saving money by only using water! Brilliant!"
