SteamMachine Plus

Over the past year, I have been trying hard to get rid of harsh chemicals in my home and been moving to only using steam, or eco-friendly cleaners. I have had so much success cleaning with steam that I have been trying to find the perfect steam cleaner for my mother. The problem for her, however, is that she cannot handle anything that is heavy or not easy to manipulate. This made looking for the perfect steamer for her challenging, especially with her weight limit due to an old injury. While on our search for the perfect steam cleaner, I was approached by one of my favorite companies – HomeRight – who asked to review their brand new SteamMachine Plus. Since I use the SteamMachine constantly in my own home, I couldn’t wait to try out this new steamer and see if it was the perfect match for my mother.

HomeRight SteamMachine Plus: What is It?

Looking for a way to clean your floors and hard to reach areas without using harsh chemicals? If so, we think you will love the HomeRight SteamMachine Plus Multipurpose Steam Mop. This easy to use steam mop allows you to easily clean and disinfect just about any hard floor, including laminate, hardwood, tile, stone, and even linoleum. What makes steam cleaning so amazing is it not only cleans without the use of chemicals, but is hot enough to kill 99.9% of germs and bacteria, including e-coli, salmonella, and more! What also makes it unique when compared to other steamers on the market is its unique swivel triangular mop head, which makes getting into corners and tight spots even easier. To add make this machine even more user friendly for households, it also includes a detachable hand-held steamer, which includes 6 attachments that are perfect for cleaning and disinfecting common areas that are tough to keep clean including your oven, grill, countertops, and even bathroom surfaces. With the SteamMachine Plus, cleaning just became a whole lot easier!

HomeRight SteamMachine Plus: Overall

I have tried quite a few steam cleaners and I have to stay, the HomeRight SteamMachine Plus is one of my favorites. Like the SteamMachine that I reviewed earlier this year it is very easy to use and comes with a variety of useful attachments. As well, it is very light weight, making it something that most people could easily lug up stairs or even carry around the house one handed. What really puts it above and beyond the competition, however, is its unique head that easily fits in corners and, ,of course, the removable handheld steamer on the unit. This little steamer is perfect at taking care of small jobs while you are cleaning and allow you to have one steam cleaner that can truly take care of everything. After trying this out in our own home, I have to say that I am very impressed. Based on our own experience with this unit, I am happy to give the HomeRight SteamMachine Plus an A+ rating!

    This sounds exactly like what I am looking to purchase. Not many can be used on laminate and that is what I have in our home. I also like that no chemicals are used and that it is light weight and so easy to use.

    I am amazed at how many things this small machine can do! Talk about making your cleaning so much easier! I LOVE the idea of not having to use any chemicals to get a deep clean! My hubbie has lung issues and I have to be very choosy about what cleaners are used in the home.

    The SteamMachine Plus looks like a product I would definitely use. I particularly like that it has a detachable handheld unit with 6 attachments. I can see how this would make cleaning in the kitchen and even the bathroom a lot easier.

    I really like the looks of this little steamer! I also really like that the pad/cloth is washable instead of having to buy the disposable ones, that right there saves a wad of money. Thanks for your honest review on the SteamMachine, if I don’t win one I’ll be buying one for sure

    I have often wondered if these steam machines really work, I live in Smoky Mountains and the mud id grinded in to my kitchen and bathroom floor I have to get down and scrub it with a pad just to keep it clean but with this machine it sounds like I won’t have to do that anymore. I love that it’s lightweight and has attc with it, I am so Praying I can win this little machine it would help me out

    I soooo need one of these. I am tired of cleaning with chemicals (and I do it because it makes me feel better than I am actually killing icky stuff) BUT I rather do it the safer way with steam. I hate it when Im cleaning with harsh chemicals and our son comes running in putting his hands on everything! I just HAVE to stop and wash his hands because you just never know what those chemicals can do to his little body. So I have to quickly clean and then make sure he stays out of the room until it is dry (at least 10 minutes) and the bathroom is the worse!! I swiffer it (which doesnt disinfect) and then spray it down with 7th generation to kill all of the e-coli and whatnot on the floor that our son loves to roll around on. That takes forever to dry (at least 30 minutes)!!! It would be a god sent to be able to clean things with steam and know that it wont hurt my son to touch the surfaces afterwards because there wont be any chemicals.

    I would use this daily. My floors really need a good, deep cleaning. Not having to use chemicals is a plus!

    LOVE that it cleans with no harsh chemicals. I have been trying to go as green as I can in my house but I struggle with keeping the floors really clean. This would be awesome.

    This is the perfect solution for me! As a chemically-sensitive person, I am always looking for safe, effective, and non-toxic ways to clean my house. This would help to keep my hardwood and tile floors clean and looking great, while keeping my home free of chemical fumes.

  14. Adriana June 8, 2014 at 4:19 pm - Reply

    Wow! This seems like it would be the perfect house-tool for me! We have all hardwood floors on the main floor, so it would be really nice to have this steamer. Does it make any noise? Thank you for the giveaway opportunity!

    I think it is so important to clean without harsh chemicals. I have two grandkids and a cat so I try to be careful what I use and this would do a great job of cleaning and be safer for them.

    I would be ever so grateful to have ownership of this awesome steam cleaner in my own home? Money is extreme tight as I was injured in an accident and I can barely afford what bills I have but often have to put aside the one’s incurred from the accident where the at fault driver was driving with no insurance and backed into me… I wish I can purchase the SteamMachine

    Though unlike most my entire family isnt blessed with funds to afford such an item; as I was raised by a single parent! I’d have to either wait and be lucky to win one or get it at a thrift shop at a extra low price! Throughout my childhood I was teased with many things; primarily the clothes I wore, which came from a thrift shop… Once I can only dream of one day owning this item, as I have always wanted to try this awesome steam cleaner, therein I wont ever go back to using harsh chemicals again!

    I am impressed with this machine. I would love to have one. i have 5 animals and live in an area with lots of trees. My floors are always getting dirty constantly. I like how it cleans and the steam sterilizes too. What a great product too!

    I love the idea of steam cleaning. I have a toddler who has made me much more mindful of the cleaning agents and chemicals I use in my home. I love the idea of the steam machine plus because I can get things clean (especially floors, etc.) in a natural way.

    This steam cleaner looks great. I have one but it is a big and bulky cannister type thing that is a pain in the butt to haul out and drag around, and I don’t think it heats up enough to kill anything anymore. With this one, I could be confident that my floors and other surfaces were clean and healthy for my baby girl, without the use of chemicals. I love the hand-held cleaner unit that detaches from the main unit.

    Thanks so much fro sharing your review! I honestly had not heard of this brand before and loved your review on the product and will definitley keep this in mind when shopping for a new steamer! I love the steamer clean you get with one of these and I need a new one for sure. My steamer is one of the originals when steamers first came out so you KNOW that they are very much improved and better than ever. I would love to win for sure. Thanks for the chance.

    I would love to try this steam mom in my house especially since my kids have suffered so much with allergies this year. I think this is the perfect idea for allergy sufferers because you don’t need all those harmful chemicals. Thanks

    This is EXACTLY what my son needs for his first home! With 2 cats and a dog in the house (which goes in and out) you can imagine what his floors are like. He may not be willing to pull out a mop and bucket all the time, but he would use this! After all it’s technology! LOL! Thanks for the great inspiration and review1

    With the pointed design it would get in nicely cleaning the corners. I try no chemicals because of pets licking their paws.

    This looks great for keeping my house clean without chemicals. I would love that with a baby who is soon to be crawling all over the place. The fact that you could use this on other surfaces besides the floor is just an added bonus!

    I so need a steam machine like this and I’ve been in the market to buy one, but there are so many out there and I’m fearful of putting out money and not being happy with what I purchase…which, unfortunately, happens a lot! So thank you very much for this review and information! I have so many different types of flooring in my home that this would work great on!

  39. Robin Hughes June 9, 2014 at 10:54 pm - Reply

    Having one of these would be a complete blessing. My body can hardly take the scrubbing that goes into my kitchen floor. It is only 10×7! It would save so much pain and time to have my floor clean the first time! I am dreaming of owning one of these.

    This looks like an incredible steam mop! I can just imagine how easy it would be to use, especially with the swivel-type head for the corners and under our dining table (in my case). I also like that I would not have to use harsh chemicals in order to get the job done.

    What a difference the Steam Machine will make in “my life of floors.”
    Lightweight, it will save my back from the lifting and my hands from the pulling motion required to squeeze a dunked-in-the-bucket sponge mop dry. As my entire apartment is tiled, not making toting trips of changing dirty mop water, will be such a relief.

    I would so love to win this machine! I just had new flooring put down in my kitchen and I’m afraid to use any ole cleaner on it. This steam cleaner sounds awesome.

    We have had a floor steamer before and it worked really good for cleaning the vinyl floors, but this one even has a hand-held steamer too. The hand-held option on this one would be great for cleaning around the house, especially in the bathroom and kitchen.

    I am curious about this whole steam cleaning thing. My husband is super messy and he loves to cook, so our kitchen often looks like a disaster zone. Especially around the stove. So, let’s say, he splatters pasta sauce all over the floor and stove top. How would I go about cleaning it with the steamer? Would the steamer somehow pick up the caked-on residue? Or would I use it to loosen the residue and then wipe it up with paper towels? Would I then go over it with the steamer a second time? Sorry for all the questions, but I’m a little confused on how this works!

    So, I’ve seen the sharks and I’ve owned one like this but Shark Brand and wasn’t impressed, While it did clean without chemicals using steam, it only cleaned the the surface. My flooring is porous and was not sealed when it was installed. So the dirt really gets in their.

    I think with this one, since it includes the attachments, it would work better. Based on your review, I am definitely interested in making a purchase soon. After my vacation.

    This seems like a great steam mop, thanks for the informative review. I especially like the way it can be used on many types of floors and surfaces.

    I’d also like to get rid of as many chemical cleaners as possible, but there are a few (not many, but a few) things that vinegar or baking soda can’t take care of. For those (generally sticky) messes, I’d love to have a steamer at home to reach for. Thanks for all the information and for highlighting this great product.

    I’ve also been trying to cut out harsh chemicals and use more natural safe products in my home, a steammachine sounds like a good way to go. I also have dogs that track all manner of stuff into the house so something that can get rid of nearly all germs like this machine is exactly what I need.

    My daughter has a different brand steam cleaning machine, but the cleaning head is in the shape of a rectangle. I tried to use it and had an impossible time trying to get in corners, around the toilet and other germ ridden places. I saw your Steam Machine Plus and realized that in order to get in and clean the most germ ridden areas like around the toilet, the head needs to be triangle shaped just like a corner. Plus, my daughter’s does not come with attachments for all those odd jobs that need to be done. But the Steam Machine Plus has all the attchments you will ever need. The Steam machine Plus is the cleaning machine I have been wanting and am hoping to get!

    Our VERY VERY OLD (120 years+) three and a half story “vintage” (aka fixer upper!) 3-flat helps us pay the mortage ~ but is also VERY high maintainance. Both the front and the back stairways are carpeted and IMPOSSIBLE to clean, Lugging a regular vacuum cleaner up and down the stair (and even with a very long heavy extension cord) having to unplug and then replug in the hard to access outlets is such a drag it gives us nightmares!

    The wonderful little HomeRight Steam Cleaner sounds like it would take a lot of the dread out of this nasty but necessary chore!

    Thanks, Susan!
