Qustion about the Vapamore MR-100 Primo Steam Cleaner Sanitizes Plus Kills Mold, Bedbugs Etc..

Q: "I have mold growing in the grout between the ceramic tile in my bathroom. I bought this house at auction in the fall. It was abandoned in the spring so no AC was on during the summer months. The ceramic tile itself is really dirty both in the shower and on the floor. I am concerned about bedbugs and dust mites in the carpeting. Can the Vapamore handle these problems? Is it expensive to operate? Do I need to add chemicals for the best results? Thanks. Will."

Answer: The Vapamore Primo Steam cleaner includes accessories to clean almost any hard surface that can be cleaned with water. Kill the mold in the grout and clean the tile as well. This unit was invented by a former ceramic tile installer and repairman.

The only requirement is that you always use distilled water in the Vapamore. The holding tank holds 1.6 liters of water: fill the included plastic measuring cup twice. Remember you must let the unit cool down for 30 minutes between refills to avoid steam/scalding. This is an economical way to clean this home, your cars and more since there are no expensive chemicals, no dangers other than steam.  Professionals use this machine to kill bedbugs and dust mites so you can, too.

Your wife or you will also appreciate using this as a steamer to get wrinkles out of clothing.

Question about the MicroMax Microfiber Wet Mop Cover, 24 In., BLUE

Q: "I bought a 24 inch BonaKemi microfiber mop last year. I need more covers. I understand the mop was discontinued. Will the MicroMax covers fit? How are they different? They are much less expensive. Thanks. Mary."

Answer: The MicroMax covers are made by Medline, one of the nation's leading manufacturer's and resellers of medical products. Medline MicroMax are super absorbent microfiber mop covers that fit all 24 inch long commercial mops that are 24 inches long by 4 inches wide. The actual size is a rectangle 25.5 inches by 5.5 inches. These are double layered covers.

Superior to standard commercial mop covers for microfiber mop bases, these wet mop pads are double layered. The outer layer is 100 percent twisted microfiber and is made from 100 percent polyester and 80 percent polyester/20 percent polyamide fibers. The inner layer is made of high-density foam for increased absorption. Wash these micromop pads in detergent and hot water up to 140 degrees F. Lasts through 250-300 washes. They are available in quantities with discounted prices. For example, a box of 12 coverscan save you a lot of money.

Thanks for your question.

Sincerely,

Barbara
