The advantage of using steam

Why steam?

More and more companies and individuals are turning their attention to the steam cleaning sector. Thanks to its numerous advantages, this proves to be the most convenient type of cleaning on the market, both in terms of efficacy and cost.

The basic idea of steam cleaners is rather simple: the water poured into a tank is heated and brought to the desired temperature, resulting in the output of steam. Starting from this principle, the sector has evolved, offering products with integrated functions. 

At the base of everything, however, there is steam, and it is precisely the simplicity of this process that makes it revolutionary: with the use of simple tap water it is possible to clean and sanitize almost any surface, without the use of additional products.

How does a steamer work?


The pressurized boiler is an obsolete system that requires the manual filling of water directly into the boiler prior to using the machine. The running time of this system is dictated by the size of the boiler. Furthermore, the waiting time before being able to use the steamer is about 10-15 minutes, depending on the type of model.

This system is NOT being used by STI.

When you run out of water, you must stop working. It is therefore necessary to cool down the boiler prior to refilling the system. Then, you must wait 10-15 minutes before resuming work.


With this system, available on all STI steamers, the boiler does not need to be filled-up with water manually. Users fill-up a tank which, when necessary, refills the boiler automatically, by mean of an electronic device.

Furthermore, waiting time when you switch-on the machine is just 3-6 minutes, depending on the model.


Some models are equipped with a detergent feature, which is contained in a separate tank.

It is therefore possible to add detergent, mixed with steam, by simply pressing a dedicated trigger on the handle. The flow can be adjusted by mean of a control located on the machine’s display.


This system, available on some of our steamers, connects the machine to the water mains, and consequently the steamer can be used continuously, without having to worry about filling up manually either the boiler or the water tank.
