Cleaning your house shouldn’t have to involve carting lots of different bottles and sprays from one room to another, in fact it doesn’t have to be like this at all. By using a steam cleaner you can loosen and remove grime, grease and dirt whilst at the same time sanitising the surface by killing up to 99% of bacteria and germs, as well as mould, dust mites and fleas, basically all the things you don’t want in your home.
The Beldray 12 in 1 Steam Cleaner is a reasonably priced steam cleaner that can be used on upholstery, grouting, hard floors, windows and more, it comes with an angled nozzle, straight nozzle, two mop heads, grouting tool, scraping tool, carpet glider and two brushes. It also has a garment/upholstery steamer cloth and window/mirror attachments, the amount of steam used can be adjusted thanks to the dial. The Beldray 12 in 1 Steam Cleaner was easy to put together, the 330ml water tank is not removable but there is a jug and funnel included to make filling it up easier.
The unit itself is very light (3.3kg) an measures up at just 30 x 20.7 x 110cm which makes it easy to lift up to windows and move around the house. Powered by the mains you get a 5meter lead, this might seem long until you start using it around the house, we found that we had to stop several times whilst mopping the floor to find another wall plug. You will get 15minutes of continuous steam per tank and we found the water heated up quickly, in just 25seconds it was ready to use, when using the mop configuration, we found it moves naturally and it tackled the edges and corners well, the floor was dry in about 15minutes.
We found the handheld set up a little more temperamental, when cleaning a mirror, the machine would occasionally spurt out water instead of steam, making the cleaning process last a little longer and being a little bit wetter than we had hoped for. This possibly isn’t the best choice for an all over house cleaner due to the random water ejecting from the nozzles, the upholstery attachment worked well but we think the Beldray performed best as a low budget steam mop, it left our floors clean, germ free and dry in no time, without a single chemical cleaner insight.
