Recently named a Consumers Digest Best Buy, the Vapamore MR-100 Primo Steam Cleaner provides a safe and effective way to sanitize your whole house. Unlike vacuums, which are typically limited to carpeted surfaces, and traditional chemical cleaners, which often release harmful substances into your home environment, the MR-100 Primo uses a dry vapor steam system to clean materials with heat. Additionally, the MR-100 can remove dust mites, fleas, bed bugs, mold, mildew, and other biological contaminants from nearly any non-heat-sensitive surface.
The Power of Steam
Unlike other products, steam has unique cleaning properties that allow for concentrated penetration of hard-to-reach areas and tiny pores on surfaces. The Vapamore MR-100 Primo uses a stainless steel boiler—similar to those used in commercial-grade steam cleaning systems—to heat ordinary water and turn it into a powerful dry steam. Since water naturally retains heat, the hot vapor emitted by the MR-100 Primo unlocks the bonds of dirt and other contaminants, making them considerably easier to eradicate.
This steam isn’t just effective for removing dirt and stains. Because of high operating temperatures, bacteria, fungus, mold, dust mites, and even viruses are eliminated to create a healthier indoor environment. Moreover, since steam is vapor-based instead of moisture-based, surfaces are never left with chemical or watery residues, making this steam cleaner ideal for those with asthma, allergies, or multiple chemical sensitivities (MCS).
Because of its safe and natural cleansing method, the Vapamore MR-100 Steamer can be used on materials as diverse as tile floors, granite countertops, fiberglass shower walls, cotton clothing, chrome finishes, porcelain toilets, drapery fabric, air vents, wooden cabinets, furniture upholstery, and even for car detailing. The included brushes and tools extend the functionality of the MR100, letting you defrost freezers, remove paint and wallpaper, polish jewelry, de-gunk stoves and ovens, and eliminate fabric odors.
Below are just a few examples of how the Vapamore MR-100 Steam Cleaner can keep your home fresh:
Kitchen: Use the MR-100 to disinfect countertops and cabinets; remove stains from linoleum, sealed hardwood, and tile flooring; cleanse cooking grates and grilles; and keep kitchen appliances spotless both inside and out.
Bathroom: Dark and dank bathrooms are perfect breeding grounds for various bacteria and fungi, which are often left untouched or even aided by a usual soap-and-water rinsing. Use this home steam cleaner to attack germs, mold, and mildew growing in corners, on shower and sink surfaces, and in tile grout.
Clothing/Fabric: Eliminate stains and odors when you don’t have time to put a load through the wash. The steam cleaner can also be used to steam shirts and pants in lieu of ironing. For asthma- and allergy-sufferers, kill dust mites living in carpeting, furniture, and bedding, and sanitize drapery and curtains without having to remove them. Vapamore steam cleaners are also effective in eliminating bed bug infestations on mattresses and bedding.
Living Room/Bedroom: In addition to spot cleaning stains and spills, the Vapamore MR100 can be used to deep clean carpets and hard flooring, clean air vents, and disinfect bookshelves, dressers, and tables. Remove paint and wallpaper during a renovation as well as rid the couch of odors. Steam cleaning is even safe for vinyl.
Automotive: Tired of looking at that stain in the passenger seat? Steam cleaning is safe for both leather and cloth interiors as well as for exterior detailing. Because we often don’t think of our vehicles when cleaning, they can harbor dust, pollen, mold, and germs. The Vapamore MR-100 lets you finally rid your car from grime and dust from the inside out.
Garage/Outdoors: Works on smooth cement flooring and wood, so you can successfully combat spills and stains in the garage and patio. Polish and remove grime and gunk from hand tools, machinery, and other metal items such as ladders. Do away with algae growing in the pool area, and even remove weeds in the yard.
Maintenance and Operation
The Vapamore MR-100 Primo Steamer reduces the physical work needed to clean your home. Instead of incessantly scrubbing surfaces with bleach and abrasive materials while kneeling or straining for an extended period, simply use the hose extensions to reach high ledges and surfaces, fit in tight places, and clean under or between appliances. Large rubber wheels and an ergonomic handle allow for increased mobility, letting you take the Vapamore steam cleaner anywhere it’s needed. A retractable power cord is useful for storage when the cleaner is not in use.
To begin a cleaning session, fill the 1.6-liter water tank using the provided measuring cup and funnel; a full tank provides 50 to 60 minutes of power. The red indicator light means the steam cleaner is turned on and heating the water to 220 degrees Fahrenheit, which takes about 11 minutes. The green indicator light lets you know when the water is done heating and ready for use. Additionally, the dial located on the top of the Vapamore MR-100 Primo lets you adjust the steam output to match your task at hand.
The Vapamore MR-100 Primo comes with multiple accessories to simplify your cleaning routine. All parts fit resourcefully into the storage compartment located at the back of the cleaner, and a cloth accessory bag is included with the 18-piece set.
Four Brush Heads: Choose between a metal, nylon medium duty, large nylon, and nylon grout brush to tackle both delicate and heavy-duty jobs.
Clothes/Fabric Tool: Get rid of stains, dust, germs, allergens, and odors from fabrics, clothing, and bedding or quickly steam a shirt on the go.
Smooth Surface Tool: The clothes/fabric tool without the cotton cover creates the smooth surface tool. Steam granite, stone, hardwood, tile, linoleum, glass, and stainless steel surfaces. This tool is especially useful for countertops and shower doors.
Detail Scraping Tool: Remove dried/burnt food from the side of the oven as well as paint and wallpaper from walls. This tool also lets you use the home steam cleaner for defrosting.
Jet Nozzle and Detail Adapter: Ideal for polishing jewelry, handling car detailing, spraying plants, and cleaning small items and surfaces.
