Since the steam cleaner is a precision instrument, maintenance is still necessary on a daily basis. Although it may be cumbersome depending on the model, there is usually no need to do anything because it is usually a method of dissolving the special chlorinated powder and putting the water into a tank to emit steam.
Please cherish the habit of taking regular anti-Kalki measures.
How to clean the steam cleaner
To clean the steam cleaner, turn on the water, turn on the switch, and spray hot steam to clean it. At the same time, it is a simple procedure to complete sterilization.
Although it is necessary to change the nozzle and brush depending on the place to be cleaned, a canister type steam cleaner can be used as a vacuum cleaner.
Of course, high-temperature steam is injected, so be careful not to get burned. The operation itself is very easy, so you can get a quick tip once.
It is easy to use the steam cleaner, but depending on the type of steam cleaner, there are things that are quite troublesome to clean. My favourite Steam First is only once a month or two, so I just do something very simple: just put the water in which the special descaling powder is dissolved into the tank and let it out.
Regular anti-Kalki measures are available, so just use tap water instead of distilled water for normal use. If I have time, I sterilize it with high-temperature steam around the water every week.
Use distilled water for proper maintenance
If your home only uses steam first once a month or once every six months, you may care about the timing when you feel that steam has weakened.
Chalk problems are all types of steam cleaners. Therefore, most types of steam cleaners can only contain distilled water instead of tap water containing calcite.
Chalk can cause clogging of the steam outlet, whether it is handy, mop-type, or canister-type. Of course, if you want to care for it with descaling powder, or if you want to save on the cost of descaling powder, you can usually prevent the use of distilled water instead of tap water to prevent desalting and descaling.
