The trouble with cleaning your bathroom is once it gets too dirty, most of the cleaning products you need are too harsh on your bathroom walls, countertops, and grout. They can also involve the excruciating task of hitting the nooks and crannies of tile and other bathroom corners with a toothbrush and elbow grease. What you (and so many other homeowners need) is a high-pressure water vapor cleaning machine.
Advantages of Using Water Vapor
Biological pollutants in homes are a major health problem. When you realize we spend up to 70 percent of our time in our homes, you realize how important a dirt- and germ-free environment can be. For example, steam cleaning can control or reduce the occurrence of infectious agents such as bacteria and viruses, dust mites, fleas, pollen, etc. Steam pressure cleaning has the ability to kill dust mites, fleas and their eggs on contact. Allergens and dander are removed instantly. This is an excellent option for asthma sufferers or people with compromised immune systems. This level of cleanliness is not available with regular cleaning methods. Steam/pressure cleaners open up a whole new world in terms of deep down dirt removal. People who have babies can especially appreciate the net results of killing germs.
Home and Bathroom Safety
While using water vapor to clean will make your bathroom safer to live in, investing a little extra money can bring the same benefits to your entire house. You should be careful buying a unit that's too small, anyway. It can be great for cleaning your sinks, but larger projects will require too much exposure time and can begin to have an abrasive effect similar to chemical cleaners. On the other hand, hiring a high quality water vapor cleaner with adjustable settings can allow you to steam your carpet, clothes, wall paper, glass doors, even your golf clubs. Small cleaners can run as low as $100, a high end cleaner can set you back as much as $1,500.

For deep cleaning and air quality purposes, water vapor is definitely the way to go, but if you don't want to drag the machine around every other day there are several ways of easily maintaining clean grout between your deep cleaning. Fill a spray bottle with any of readily available household products. Rubbing alcohol, hydrogen peroxide, baking soda, or a ceramic tile professional recommends vinegar. Spray your grout after you take a shower and open a window and you should be able to go for considerable periods between deep cleaning. Even if your grout looks clean, you'll still want to hit it with water vapor every once in a while to kill the dust mites and other allergens hiding within your tile.
