In addition, steam kills 99.99%* of all common household bacteria, ensuring the highest standard of hygiene and a healthy living environment

This powerful cleaning tool obviates the needs of using harsh cleaning agents. Not only that you can save cost on not having to buy any additional cleaning supply, but it is also super environmentally friendly and relieves you from inhaling toxic chemical substances altogether.

Bathroom Steam Cleaner Effortlessly Removes Stubborn Grime and Dirt

Using the right tool for the job will save you a considerable amount of time and effort without a doubt. And Karcher Steam Cleaner with its microfibre cloth set for bathrooms is just the most powerful weapon you can have to combat the most stubborn bathroom dirt and grime. 

Steam rapidly heats up stains, making its temperature significantly higher than the actual surface itself. As a result, thermal tension is formed between dirt and the surface, which makes it easy to remove dirt from the surface. This temperature difference causes stains to swell and automatically detaches itself from the surface.

Our steam cleaner produces steam at a pressure of at least 3 bar. That is the equivalent to the pressure released when a champagne cork is launched from a bottle. The result is a high level of cleaning force which powerfully loosen stubborn dirt. 

Our microfibre cloth set specifically made for bathroom cleaning are made up of abrasive fibres for optimal removal of limescale. The soft texture of the microfibre cloths, on the other hand, is capable of taking in dirt optimally.

How to Use a Steam Cleaner in the Bathroom?

1. Steam Clean Shower Glass

One of the best features of Kärcher Steam Cleaner is that it is highly customisable with various accessories available for sale at Kärcher store. By attaching Kärcher Steam Cleaner with its special window nozzle, you can clean glass surfaces thoroughly. 

The steam opening in the built-in nozzle vaporises the glass pane in order to remove dirt effectively. Its high-quality squeegee blade removes any molds, soap residue and stains from windows and glass surface thoroughly. 

Furthermore, its small and lightweight design allows you to reach surfaces at any height by extending your arms to the area you intend to clean easily, without fuss! 

This powerful combination (steam vacuum + window nozzle) obviates the need to apply traditional mirror cleaning remedy (use of newspaper, vinegar-water solution) which is not necessarily as effective as it is claimed to be.

2. Clean Bathroom Toilet Floor Tiles With Steam Cleaner

Karcher steam cleaners ensure maximum cleanliness and hygiene on hard surfaces like stone, tiles, PVC, laminate or sealed parquet flooring without leaving chemical residues – for a healthy living environment.

The Karcher floor nozzle with lamella technology is designed to ensure that the steam remains concentrated on the floor for a long time and cleans with maximum effect. 

Thanks to their high cleaning performance and intensive cleaning impact, Karcher steam cleaners kill 99.99 %* of common household bacteria on all hard surfaces and are therefore considerably more hygienic than a conventional mop.

3. Clean Bathroom Sink with Steam Cleaner

To avoid scratching chrome or stainless steel fittings, use the detail nozzle and hold it close to the object being cleaned and wait until the lime breaks down under powerful blasts of steam.

If it's still not going to budge or is in an awkward spot, a brush can be added to the nozzle.

4. Remove Bathroom Soap Scum with Steam Cleaner

You can usually remove the usual bathroom stains, like limescale and soap residue easily with hot water steam generated by steam cleaner and vigorous scrubbing.

You can also choose to remove stubborn soap residue with the abrasive cloth included in our microfibre bathroom cloth kit. 

In cases in which limescale layer gets too thick, you can just pour some citric acid-based cleaner (vinegar or lemon juice) to the area, then clean it with the nozzle after leaving it for 15-30 minutes.

Once the soap scum is removed, regular steam cleaning will prevent lime deposits from forming in the future.

Remove Mold From Bathroom Tile Grout

Kärcher’s Steam Cleaner allows you to sanitize your bathroom and kill mold via high temperature. As pressured steam penetrates deep into the pores of the cleaned surface, it is effective in eradicating bathroom mold that is stuck in the gaps between ceramic or stone tiles, which is a common floor and wall furnish for most bathrooms. 

Besides killing mold, you can also attach a detail nozzle accessory to our steam cleaner to easily remove mold from crevices, corners, edges and other difficult to reach areas. 

Some people use bleach to “remove” mold. What they do not realize is that bleach doesn’t actually kill the mold. It only bleaches it white and keeps the growing problem invisible to the human eye. 

Regular steam cleaning using Karcher’s best floor steamer is the best way to resolve mold problems.

Keep Bathroom Well Ventilated

Unventilated bathrooms are prime candidates for mold growth. Please bear in mind that only 10% of the mold is visible, while the other 90% of mold is microscopic (not visible to the human eye).

While steam cleaning and scrubbing can remove visible mold, we still need to find out the reason that causes high humidity in the bathroom and get it fixed in order to keep mold out of your bathroom once and for all!

You may want to consider Installing a bathroom exhaust fan to help increase air circulation and control humidity.
