Are Steam Cleaners Heated? When Would One Choose One Over A Non-heated Carpet Extractor?

the “heated” cleaners only keep the hot water hot longer. It may be just me but I don’t find it necessary. I don’t have a heater element for my steamcleaner. I always managed to get through a tank of hot water before the water cools too much. If you have a larger area to clean or find yourself constantly being interupted or needing to move things then a heated tank might be a good idea. I have an older hoover model. It still works beautifully.

    Some are heated. In some the pump runs so hot it heats the water. The water used will not actually be very hot by the time it reaches the carpet after being sprayed. Most important is using the extractor efficiently and using the proper mix of detergent.
