Start the new year with a spring in your step! Now the rush of Christmas and new year is over it’s time to open up the cleaning cupboard and prepare for the big Spring clean!

Getting rid of 99.9% of common household germs, bacteria, viruses, dust mites and bedbugs, steam cleaning is a great place to start and is sure to give you a head start on your cleaning for 2016.

No matter how good your steam mop, it’s only as good as your pads so ensure yours are up to the job. With the right care pads can last several hundred times, however here are a few tips on how to prolong the life of your steam cleaner pads.

  • Machine wash them regularly but never use bleach or fabric softener – although tempting to use, these products can actually damage the fibers on the pads making their life shorter.
  • Let the pads air dry whenever possible, or dry on a low setting in your dryer.
  • Have more than one pad to hand so that you can change when required, even mid-room. During a deep clean you may need to use multiple pads across your various surfaces.
  • With the amount of dirt that can be picked up pads can appear grey in color even after being washed, but rest assured they are clean and will still work great.
  • The lifespan of your pads depends on what type of floor you have, how often you use them and what type of scrubbing or steaming you do but as a general rule you should change your pads every 3-6 months regardless of their apparent condition.
