Black & Decker has introduced an all-new range of home steam cleaning units, available in four new models. The new steam cleaning units use water to kill 99.9 percent of germs to achieve a deep down clean. Two of the new models include SmartSelect® technology where consumers can choose a steam setting to address individual floor types. Smart Select provides three different steam settings that correspond to different floor types to produce the right amount of steam to clean the selected floor material. Select models include the steam burst feature which produces up to 50 percent more steam in a 10 second burst. The steam burst option is useful for removing tough grime and stains in heavily soiled areas. An additional feature on select models, the Lift & Reach™ detail head, is designed to provide access to tight spaces and corners.
“We’ve identified four areas with steam cleaning products that were in need of improvement and innovation: steam mops that are difficult to fill; units with awkward controls; insufficient cleaning power; and units that are unable to access difficult areas like tight corners,” said Austin Wilcox , product manager at Black & Decker. “The new Black & Decker Steam Cleaning Units allow users to clean multiple floor surface types like tile, vinyl, stone, marble and even sealed hard wood. Consumers are able to get a deep down clean using only water.”
