I've read about the benefits of steam cleaning over vacuuming and using chemical based upholstery and rug cleaners, but I have never had the opportunity to try out a system for myself. That's why I was so excited to get the opportunity to test drive the Vapamore MR-100 Primo and report my findings to our community. I wondered if it would really simplify cleaning and produce professional results at home. Read on to learn about what I experienced.
The Vapamore MR-100 Primo is a steam cleaner that comes with a variety of attachments for cleaning everything from hard surfaces to carpeting to upholstery. I was impressed with how light in weight the steamer was and how easy it was to fill using the instructions provided. The only thing that disappointed me during my initial inspection and review of the product was that there weren't a lot of instructions about how to actually use the steamer for various cleaning jobs. I wasn't sure if I should be moving quickly or slowly, so I had to do some trial and error during my tests.
My white carpeting has seen better days and has a lot of very noticeable stains. I decided to tackle them with the cleaner. One thing that concerned me was that there wasn't a separate tank for cleaning up the water, which is what I've seen with steamers that you rent and use at home. I was worried that this would diminish the cleaning benefits. Once I figured out a good pace at which to move the steamer, those fears were alleviated. I could see the dirt dissolving from the carpet and it instantly looked brighter. The stains lightened, but didn't disappear completely; however, when I got down on the carpet and brushed the pile with a scrub brush, more of the soiling disappeared. Now, the stains are barely visible and the entire carpet is much brighter.
I have a cat, and sadly, I also have an allergy to cats. My kitty likes to sleep on one spot on the sofa, and it seems that no matter how many times I vacuum it, if I sit in the spot, I quickly develop itchy eyes and begin to sneeze. Since Vapamore says that the steamer eliminates allergens, I decided to try and use it on my cat's sleeping spot. The couch dried quickly and looked a lot cleaner when I was finished. Once it dried, I popped in a movie and sat right in the dreaded spot. I didn't sneeze or sniffle once, and the sofa seemed much fresher and cleaner.
Based on the results of my two tests, I would highly recommend the Vapamore MR-100 Primo. You may want to spend some time watching videos on YouTube before taking on specific cleaning tasks because as I explained, the steamer's instruction manual is not very detailed in the actual operation of the device. Still, the steamer is an excellent investment, and I was able to clean my carpeting and my sofa on just one full reservoir of water.
