Steam vapor cleaners are widely available in the market and they can be used to clean a variety of surfaces from hardwood floors, to bathroom tiles, to upholstery and carpets.
The advantages of steam cleaning are that it is easy to handle and use. The use of a steam jet machine will help kill germs and bacteria that are responsible for causing allergies in most people.

When it comes to cleaning hardwood surfaces, nothing can be easier than to use a steam machine to clean the surfaces. Using the steam machine will limit the cleaning steps to two which makes it better for the individual who is cleaning.
The first step requires that you fill the machine with water so that you can produce steam which will be used for cleaning. After you switch the machine on, you need to wait for about 15 minutes till there is enough steam created to last for about 45 minutes of cleaning procedures.
Next, attach the extension along with the cleaning tool to the nozzle of the cleaner and you are set to clean your hardwood surface without further ado.
Move the nozzle in simple and direct movements, either up to down or left to right. Remember that this should be followed because if you do not keep moving the nozzle the heat of the steam directed at a single point will cause the floor to get damaged and weak.
Once this is done, the excess water left over by the steam can be mopped up and cleared using a cleaning cloth.
