if i had a steam cleaner I would probably use it bimonthly with my asthma and allergies.

I want to get a steam cleaner to clean my wood and tile floors and other surfaces.

Jase - you can rent them at many grocery stores for not a lot of money! Maybe go in with some friends on a daily rental and all share it, to save on the money?

Jase-
I just picked up a new handheld steamer from ALDI of all places. I had a Shark Steamer, it was horrible, didnt work at all from the word Go.

This one is a Crofton and comes with all sorts of attachments for cleaning everything from windows to walls to toilets. I love it.

While you do still need to use a sponge or towel for some things, it does a great job of blasting gunk out of really hard to reach places. Another plus is that it does an even better job on crayon and other wall marks than the Magic Eraser.

OK I just steam cleaned the downstairs living room, because I was doing yoga and decided I wanted the carpet as clean as it could be. It's amazing how much brown gunk comes up from a steam cleaning, from a just-vacuumed carpet!! And we don't wear shoes in the house either - we take off our shoes when we come into the house. Where does this dirt come from?

So things are fresher and cleaner smile

Lisa, I have the same problem, gunk coming up all the time.

We moved into this house after a family who had had quite a few animals, plus a lot of foot traffic. After cleaning, the carpet looks wonderful for all of two days at the most. Then the stains begin to come back, always in the same areas.

We assume that the dirt is down in the padding under the carpet. We cannot afford to remove the carpet right now, but you better believe that when we can this whole thing is going bye-bye!

Well I have to believe that each cleaning draws out another percentage of the dirt so if I keep this up eventually it'll get cleaner smile

I wish there was some way to quantify the "percent dirt" in the water I bring up, so I could tell if it is getting cleaner. I thought about taking pictures (being the documentation person I am) but I'm not sure that I could get the lighting exactly the same each time ...
