Steamers 26 Jan 2011 10:46 EST

Hello all,

A homeowner asked this recently: is it ok to use a floor steamer to clean my stone floor?
What about steaming my wood floor?

I know that you need detergents to "clean" and to cut through greasy soils. So I don't understand how just steam alone will address that.

I don't think that the heat and pressure is such that there would be concerns about damaging any fills or causing spalling.

On wood though... I don't know. You are really only steaming the surface and the surface should be the protective coating.

Thanks for any feedback.
