And since it uses just water, it’s another natural cleaning solution that is safe to use around kids and pets when you use it as directed. We should also mention that steam mops take as little as 30 seconds to heat up, so you can quickly get to steam cleaning whenever the inspiration, opportunity or accident presents itself.
