steaming hard wood floor(4 posts)
I have purchased the Vapamore steamer and read the steaming FAQ, but one thing is still unclear to me. Perhaps someone can let me know the answer to this...If I am supposed to put a towel over the steamer head in order to increase the temp and not blow bed bugs about, and at the same time I am supposed to put the steamer head *directly* at the surface where they may be, then how can I get steam under the wooden flooring? It seems it could never get hot enough. Is it better to steam without the towel, and to put the steamer head directly onto the floor, hoping the steam will get in through the cracks between floorboards?
Thanks a lot!
Anyone at all have experience with this?
disclaimer: NOT AN EXPERT
i do have a vapamore though. i think you need to use the terry cloth hat thing on the floor attachment so as not to blow them, i DON'T think, no matter what you do, the heat will penetrate very far, alas.
how about dusting with DE after steaming for a double whammy?
(Are you even still reading this forum now that you are bbfree again?)
I guess I will use the cloth thing.
Do you know what I can do about steaming a recliner? What if I inject the jet nozzle into the clothy crevices there (that sounds naughty)? There's nowhere for them to be blown about, really.
