Types of devices and their characteristics
Today in stores you can find a wide variety of household steamers of different types and kinds. By type, all steamers are divided into:
- hand-held (portable);
- floor-standing (stationary).
Undoubtedly, the floor-standing type is much more powerful than its portable analog. It consists of a steam generator, a water tank, and a hose with various nozzles that facilitate the cleaning process. This type of steamer can cope with almost any dirt. The floor-standing type has gained great popularity in the cleaning and detailing businesses. Stationary devices are often purchased by detailing studio owners and specialists in this field.
The only, but significant disadvantage, which should be noted, is that the stationary steamer has a fairly high price, which you cannot say about the mini steamers with their low cost and mobility.
A distinctive feature of all hand-held steamers is their portable size. Before you buy such a steamer, you should know that it is not powerful enough, as it has a significant disadvantage in its low performance. However, the small size allows you to use this device not only at home but also on the vacation. The water tank will be enough for about 30 minutes of work, which indicates the mobility of the equipment. Such a steamer is considered manual, as it has mini parameters.
Before you buy a steamer, you need to understand for what purpose this purchase is made, and where you intend to use the device – at home or work. Probably, the advice of appliance consultants will help to pick the best option. Foremost, you need to choose between a household steamer and a professional one. When buying appliances for home use, you should not overpay for a powerful and functional device and vice versa.
