If the steam brush replaces an element of your daily life, it is the mop and its bucket. You know, here we are fans when technology makes things easier on a daily basis, but we want to make it clear what we are talking about when we say how the steam brush is a revolution in the domestic arts. So here is our comparative cleaning “traditional bucket and mop” vs. Cleaning “steam cleaner”!

Vs. Bucket + mop: Practicality

In addition, the hot water bucket represents a significant hazard for small children or pet passing nearby.

However, buying and re-purchasing household products is expensive, while the steam brush does not use these relatively expensive products.

After cleaning, the odor left by household chemicals may appear aggressive. Just replace your mop and bucket with a steam broom so that germs, bacteria, dirt and dust disappear without leaving traces.
