Vapamore Primo Steam Cleaner
With the increased interest in "green" cleaning, steam cleaners have become an increasingly important part of keeping your home clean without the use of harsh chemicals. The new Vapamore Primo represents an economically priced steam cleaner that is able to clean and sanitize nearly any area of your home. Redesigned taking customer's concerns into account, the Primo retains the features that made the MR-100 so popular while addressing the few complaints with the previous machine. Using up to 250° of steam, the Vapamore Primo can destroy microorganisms, dust mites, and even bed bug eggs and larvae.
What I like about the Vapamore Primo
The Vapamore Primo still retains the unique design and color scheme of the older MR-100. Though overall, this steam cleaner more closely resembles the compact style of the more expensive steamers. The Primo is actually a bit lighter than the previous model, and it comes with more attachments to give you a little more cleaning versatility.
While the Vapamore is not a $1000 or $2000 steam cleaner, the price is ideal for people who plan on using it around the home or even to help get rid of a bed bug infestation. Like all steam cleaners, since you are using water heated to the point of it being turned to steam, you'll always have moisture. However, the Vapamore Primo is considered to produce a "dry steam." Steam, by the simple virtue of being water, will be wet. "Dry steam" refers more to the amount of moisture left behind by a steam cleaner - in this case, very little.
The new Vapamore Primo steam cleaner retains the onboard storage of the accessories (though the storage space is actually larger than before) as well as a detachable hose for easy storage. Where it improved was with the power cord. Instead of wrapping it around a caddy, the cord mimics that of a Miele vacuum cleaner - it retracts with the push of a simple foot pedal. Additionally, there are a few more brushes than what were included in the old MR-100, and the handle was redesigned to give you a better feel and grip. It may not seem like much, but the short bristle, grout brush is perfect for removing the debris and stains that seem to collect in bathroom grout lines. The last little improvement I noticed was the notch on the body that matched up with the small plastic collar on the wand - a park feature! Several of the steam cleaners I have tried would be greatly improved with this simple addition. Overall, you'll find a lot of upgrades, some large and some small, but all work to give you a better all around cleaning experience.
The performance of the Vapamore was, quite frankly, great for the price point. It cleaned and sanitized nearly as well as some of the more expensive models I have tested. The run time was impressive per tank. The Primo lasts a full ten minutes longer than the old MR-100. Often with less expensive steam cleaners you are constantly filling them, but I was able to steam nearly all of my floors and both bathrooms with just one tank.
When I was finished I did notice that the kitchen and bathroom smelled fresher. While I would not suggest that a steam cleaner will solve all of your cleaning problems, for allergy and asthma sufferers or those who are sensitive to the harsh chemicals found in household cleaners, this is a healthy and effective way to clean your home and clean it more thoroughly. The steam penetrates and lifts while killing things like MRSA and Salmonella - things that traditional bleach cleaners largely fail at.
The redesign and integration of all of the accessories and power cord is convenient and helpful. With steam cleaners, like any home appliance that has accessories, you can easily find yourself digging through the hallway closet or scouring the garage looking for attachments that have fallen off and gotten lost along the way. The Vapamore Primo tucks away neatly and takes us less space than before.
What I do not like about the Vapamore Primo
With the original design of the MR-100, I had three complaints: the attachments fell off too easily, the machine could have been sturdier, and it could use a few more attachments. It was like Vapamore read my review and remedied EVERY ONE of my complaints. The added a couple more attachments, particularly the scraper and more nylon brushes (can never have enough of these handy tools). Vapamore also redesigned the shape of the model to it it's more round and compact. Lastly, the attachments all twist and lock into place. So for me, there aren't few complaints I can throw out there for the Vapamore Primo.
In general, just keep in mind your price point and weigh that versus how much you intend on using it. You cannot expect a $300 steam cleaner to go through the abuse of an industrial model. For most of us, the Vapamore provides a cost effective solution to eliminating allergens, germs, dust mites and mold without breaking the bank.
In all, I was impressed with the Vapamore. If you need a efficient vapor steam cleaner for monthly cleaning and sanitizing of your home, you can't go wrong with this model at this price. If you want a more expensive machine for more frequent use, there are several models made by very respected manufacturers that will fit the bill. Design enhancements and a lifetime warranty, while no increase in cost, all work to make the Vapamore Primo steam cleaner a marked improvement over the older MR-100 model.
