It’s that time of year again. You’re sniffling, sneezing, and have a scratchy, sore throat to match. These irritating symptoms can only mean one thing: the allergy season is back.
If you’re suffering from seasonal allergies, like hay-fever, your immune system is most likely having an overreaction to pollen and mold spores.
The good news, you keep your allergies at bay by regularly steam cleaning your home. Steam cleaning will not only leave your surfaces looking spotless, but it will also help to reduce the triggers of allergies and relieve you of any symptoms.

How can steam cleaning help to reduce allergies?
If you’re looking to get your allergies under control, your initial thought will be to get some sort of over-the-counter treatment. But you can minimize your symptoms, and even your need for medication, by keeping on top of your cleaning routine.
Dusting and vacuuming are your usual go-to cleaning methods for cracking down on the dirt in your home. Yet, with seasonal allergies at an all-time high – and set to rise according to experts – you may need something stronger.
That’s where steam cleaning can help.
Steam cleaners are designed to thoroughly clean and help sanitize surfaces around your home, without the use of chemicals.
Steam cleaning products, just like the H2O Steam Mops, work by producing hot water vapour that instantly eliminates dirt, bacteria, dust mites, and other allergens.
The power of the steam blasts away bacterial biofilms found on the surfaces in your home. Steam cleaning is a more effective method than vacuuming, due to the high temperatures of the vapours that are being released. In fact, H2O Steam Mops can kill 99% of bacteria. And don’t worry about mildew or mold after steaming, the H2O Steam Mops range has a low moisture content so the surface will dry quickly.
Steam cleaners can work on a range of flooring, yet it’s your rugs and carpets that you’ll want to focus on during allergy season. They’re a playground for millions of dust mites, which are second only to pollen in causing allergic reactions in humans.
H2O Steam Mops can penetrate deep into the carpet and kill any allergens or bacteria lurking beneath the surface – something most vacuum cleaners can’t achieve.
Steam cleaning not only removes dirt and bacteria from your carpet, but it can also banish any pet dander or odours that trigger allergies. The heat mixed with the low moisture opens pores, getting deep down to neutralize odours.
