We’ve all been there: you’ve cleaned your shower time after time, but that pesky mold and mildew keeps popping up. Even after trying several different cleaning products, you can’t seem to find a solution. Why does it keep happening? Is there a different bleach product that would work better? Are natural sprays a better option for cleaning? The fact is, the majority of cleaning products—both natural and chemical—just don’t clean as effectively as steam. That’s right, steam. Just plain water heated until it becomes a vapor.
Many grout and tile cleaning products contain chlorine bleach. Not only is bleach NOT the best option for getting your bathroom clean, but it has the potential to be very dangerous to your health. Even when diluted in household sprays and products, bleach can cause side effects like headaches, nausea, and even long-term damage to your nervous system.
Natural sprays and solutions are definitely better for your health, as well as the health of your children and pets. However, while they might appear to clean your bathroom, they may not strong enough to fend off mold and mildew for very long and, as a result, require more frequent cleanings. Additionally, soap and cleaning products can stick to residue in your shower and actually become part of the problem. Mold and mildew spores multiply and spread rapidly, so you cannot trust that you’ve cleaned them all using only chemical or natural sprays.
Experts across the board will agree that steam cleaning is the most effective mode of cleaning grout. Plus, it has the staying power to keep it clean longer. The temperature of the steam both strips the grout of mold and mildew and sanitizes it. The high temperature (212 degrees or above) of the steam kills any bacteria and gets rid of pesky residue that may be hiding in your bathroom.
