I recently took advantage of a promotion and received a PureClean XL steam cleaner because it’s a new product and they’re trying to get the word out about it. So I figured why not do a review of my experience!
Starting from the top, the unit was packaged well and comes with quite a few attachments. For a complete list, click here.
It’s super easy to set up, although I still recommend following the directions for your first time, as you’ll need to add in the right amount of water, learn the proper waiting time for the water to heat up enough for steam. But once it’s ready, cleaning is truly a breeze. I tested the cleaner on a vinyl floor and a hardwood floor, and as far as I can tell it worked tremendously.
I used one microfiber pad for the vinyl floor and a second one for the wood floor, so I’d be able to gauge the amount of cleaning that took place on both floors. Afterwards, each pad had dirt on it, so they must’ve done their job!
Be careful once you’re finished because this was over 30 minutes after I turned it off and unplugged it, as I unscrewed the cap to add more water, steam came out. So it stays hot for a while even after you’re done.
As I state in the video below, in the middle of some humor, my only complaint is the lack of instructions on using the cleaner on carpet. The instruction booklet lists the types of floors it can clean, carpet being one of them, but that’s the only time they mention carpet at all. It would be nice to have more details on that. I don’t imaging it will clean carpet as well as one of those cleaners you can rent from Lowe’s, Wal-Mart, etc, but for hard floors, I think it’s a good purchase!
