The Steamax features high temperature, dry steam of 220 – 240 degrees, working pressure of 65 psi and a variety of good quality attachments. The Steamax is a simple, user-friendly machine yet is constructed well enough to deliver powerful steam for years to come.

Pluses:

  • Heats up quickly: this steam cleaner took 13 minutes to heat up which is fast for a machine of this capacity.
  • Very hot and dry steam: steam was very hot and dry and cleaned very well on all the usual household cleaning tasks in kitchen, bathroom and beyond.
  • Attachments easy to attach and change: not as easy as our high-end steam cleaners, but easy nonetheless.
  • Lighter weight than average: this steam cleaner was easy to pull around the room; we thought that this was a big plus for normal consumer usage.
  • Good basic variety of attachments: the Steamax comes with a large rectangular brush, a triangular brush, window cleaning tool, small and large round nylon brush, two wands and a hose.
  • Good quality stainless steel boiler: which accounts for the steam cleaner heating up fast; the steel will ensure longevity.
  • Long steam cleaning time in between refills: unit will run for approximately two hours, which is really long enough for most people running around doing household clean up at the weekend!
  • Variable control for the steam on the handle: The Steamax has a variable control for the steam on the handle. You can choose low, medium, and high. We thought that this was especially useful and nice to have with a steam cleaner at this price point.

Minuses:

  • No Pressure Gauge: The Steamax does not have a pressure gauge, and we missed it because if you have a pressure gauge, you are able to monitor the quality of the steam as you clean.
  • Not Best for Windows: The window-cleaning tool leaves streaks and does not clean the entire area easily.
  • Handle Controls Could Be Better: The steam control on the handle is a nice feature but it could be better. It has a low, medium, and high setting which is activated by pressing two buttons in different positions. What we found was the low setting was too low at times and the medium too much, and the same went for the medium and the high.
  • Not Continuous Fill: It is not a continuous fill steam cleaner so after two hours of use you would need to let it cool down, refill it, and wait for it to reheat so there would be around a half hour stoppage. The best recommendation would be for the user to make sure they fill it to the brim every time they use it, so it does not run out of steam 15 minutes into their next cleaning time.

Summary:

The Steamax features a good quality stainless steel boiler and is easy to use and maneuver while cleaning in a home or commercial setting. The steam cleaner comes with a nice array of sturdy accessory tools for cleaning and sanitizing those hard to reach crevices, cracks and tight spaces. In addition to thoroughly cleaning hard surfaces and floors, the Steamax can also effortlessly clean and freshen up beds, mattresses, carpets and upholstery. The Steamax is an affordable choice for those seeking to effectively kill bed bugs and dust mites since it consistently produces hot, dry steam of up to 220°F. Overall, we recommend it to our customers who are looking for a good mid-priced machine for home use.
