Oreck Steam It Review

This mop is small enough to fit pretty much anywhere which makes cleaning a whole lot easier because you can get under the furniture and around appliances. It also makes it really easy to store because you don’t need to clear out a large space in a closet. The best part of this mop though is that it gets rid of all kinds of bacteria and does it entirely without chemicals. Not a lot of steam mops can say that but it’s really important for keeping the house cleaner for small children.

Build and Design

Made by Oreck, this steam mop is relatively small in size. This can be a good thing and somewhat of a drawback for two different reasons. It’s a good thing because it means the mop can get into spaces that other mops can’t and that it’s going to work well in smaller spaces on counters and other areas as well. It can be a drawback however because it means you’ll spend a little more time cleaning large areas, needing a few extra passes.

Because it’s lightweight however, you’re definitely not going to have a problem carrying it into different rooms of the house (or just cleaning as you go) and the controls are all at your fingers so you don’t need to stop to resent or change your settings. You can just keep moving. It’s also designed to be extremely hot so it gets rid of nearly all the moisture as it goes and does so without chemicals.

How to use

Using the Oreck Steam It is actually quite simple. It’s considered a steam wand because of the small size but don’t let that fool you into thinking it doesn’t do the work. You just need to lay it down flat and remove the cap on the water tank. Make sure to fill it slowly and use clean water and then turn it on to heat for about 30 seconds. There’s a green light that will come on to let you know it’s ready.

Turn up the regulator control to the highest setting and spray out water for about 10 seconds. This will help to get the flow and steam stabilized so it’s going to be at the best when you start cleaning. Then you lock the powerhead to the body, connect the cloth (whatever type you want to use) to the bottom and turn it on. At this point, all you need to do is just move the cleaner back and forth across the floor to get cleaning.
