Check out how a steam mop outperforms on your expectations bringing the best of environment for you and your guests.

​Q1. On what type of floors can my Bissell Titanium be safely used?

​The Bissell Titanium Cleaner is safe to use on carpets, hardwood floors, staircase and more. DO NOT use on unsealed wood. We do recommend that you check with your flooring manufacturer prior to use.

​Q2. Will my steam cleaner kill all types of mold?

​While the steam cleaners will kill MOST types of mold, unfortunately, there are a few types of mold that are heat resistant.

​Q3. Can O-Cedar Microfiber Steam Mop help with pet hair and odors?

​Yes, of course. If you steam clean using a microfiber cloth attached to the end of the mop head, it will trap the pet hair and dirt and the O-Cedar will release and remove pet odor from carpets and upholstered furniture.


​Q4.What should I consider before purchasing a steam mop?

  • ​How big is the area you want to cover?
  • What are you going to be cleaning and will you need accessories (ex: windows, brushes for ovens, etc.)?
  • Do you need continuous cleaning power?
  • What is your budget? Steam cleaners come in a variety of styles and prices.
  • Does it have a stainless steel boiler?
  • Is the steam temperature and pressure consistent?
  • Try not to get too caught up in temperature - if you only need about 200° to kill most micro organisms.

​Q5. How can this system help me?

​I have terrible allergies to common house hold pests like dust mites and fleas.Unlike traditional cleaning or pest control methods, steam mopping uses heat to do the work. NO CHEMICALS OR POISONS. The dust mite, which lives in our clothes, carpets and upholstery, will surely be gone with frequent cleaning.

​Q6. I have chemical sensitivities, how can this help me?

​The idea of steam mopping is based upon total environment friendly cleaning so you will hardly find any chemicals composition for cleaning. And, if you do, simply switch to the one having steam and water based cleaning process.


​Q7. How do I know which is the right one for me?

​Good question. You will go through different models that vary with type of accessories, their steam up time, tank capacity, and couple of other controls. The best way to know is to know your needs first before you go for a research.

​Q8.Is there any risk of injury or burn with my steam mop?


​A Steam mop uses extremely hot steam and like with an appliance of this nature (for example: your clothes iron), it is possible that you may burn yourself or get injured. But, using it with complete care will let you have a safe and efficient cleaning experience.

​Q8. Why don't I just scrub away with soap and a sponge?

​Swabbing or scrubbing your floor until the stickiness or dirt appears to be removed needs much physical effort, exposes to skin and leaves behind least satisfaction with the results achieved. The steaming system removes dirt from the surface without degrading it and hardly takes your efforts as there is no scrubbing at all.

​Q9. How much pressure does Bissell 19404 produce?

​Bissell 19404 produces only required low pressures, usually in the range of 50 to 60 PSI. It creates a very safe and easy to use system. The heat it produces on the surface does all the required cleaning work.

​Q10. Where does the dirt go?

​Based on what appliance you are using, the stubborn dirt will loosen up by the pressure of steam and simultaneously is absorbed or wiped away using an absorbent cloth.

I am a stay at home mom who loves to have everything spotless. The story behind this site is that I wanted to buy a mop and I did lots of research for it. I found that I could provide a better voice to this subject as there are no or very fewer people talking about the mops.
