Cleaning for fall? Steam clean your home with

There's always a lot of talk each year about spring cleaning, but what about fall cleaning? I don't know about you, but thoughts of upcoming cool weather and being stuck inside while it snows makes me eager to clear out some clutter and sanitize everything that's left in hopes of warding off a few of the sniffles and colds that will head our way.

But instead of filling my home with chemicals, I'd love a healthy, effective, efficient alternative that can work on almost any surface. Up until recently I wasn't sure what that was, however, now I've been introduced to the world of vapor steam cleaners (and have wondered where they have been all this time).

Offering an extensive line of vapor steam cleaners for home or business, has a carefully tested, top-of-the-line cleaner for everyone. Because all that is required is a little water and electricity, these chemical free vapor steam cleaners are able to clean, sanitize and deodorize almost any surface while safeguarding your health and the environment at the same time.

Having heard reports about the polluted air that we breathe outside, it can be somewhat startling to find out that an EPA study found that the air inside a typcial home can be two to five times more polluted than the air outside. Supermarket chemical cleaners can leave toxic fumes that can linger for days, weeks or even months - not exactly what most moms want to hear for the well-being of their family.

As I wasn't familiar with all of the great vapor steam cleaners out there, I find the idea of one machine being able to sanitize and deodorize things like bathroom floors, food preparation surfaces, carpets, bed linens and much more quite intriguing. They simply change ordinary tap water to a low-moisture, extremely high-temperature water vapor that can then remove soil, grease and built-up filth with ease.

With so many benefits, the major pitfall of owning a vapor steam cleaner seems to be the initial price tag. In the long run you will save money on never having to purchase cleaning supplies, but paying anywhere from hundreds to thousands of dollars does seem a little hard to take (the yellow steam cleaner/vacuum above at left is coming soon for $1,999 and the Ladybug XL2300 shown at right retails for $1,449).

What do you think? Have you tried (or heard of) a vapor steam cleaner before? Would the ability to rid your home of germs, bacteria, dirt, odors, allergens and more convince you to pay a hefty price tag?
