    Steam cleaners?

    Looking to buy a steam cleaner. Mainly wanting to use it on vehicle interior. Any suggestions from the community on the best steamer for money. If anyone wants to provide information that would be great.

    VX5000 if you can afford it

    I have a Mytee Firebird. It is adequate. Good heat. Wish I had higher PSI.

    This is one of the steam cleaners that I had been looking at. Then the more I read it would talk about the boiler needing to be stainless steel. So I started looking at the Vapamore MR-100 PRIMO Steam Cleaning System.

    Have you heard of this one? It is only another $100 dollars more, but I'm trying to justify whether a $100 dollars is work it.

    That VX5000 looks pretty good. Looks like it comes with ever attachment known to man. I agree, if I thought I would be using this machine on a daily basis I would probably go with this one. And maybe if I do start using the one I get on a more regular basis I may consider this one. The current one that I have been looking into to start with is the
    Vapamore MR-100 PRIMO Steam Cleaning System.

    Have you heard of this one or have any opinions on it?

    No, I haven't used the Vapamore, but let me suggest something to you. If you can afford it, always get the best machinery you can, period. A steam cleaner especially as its uses are limitless. Wait till your wife sees what it can do on tile floors! The uses for it in the house alone justify its purchase. I have 2 with a McCulloch I bought at Harbor Freight that I use in the house. If you're on a budget, it is a good machine; I've had mine a few years no with no issues whatsoever.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I'll keep that in mind. Always love going to Harbor Freight.

    VX5000 hands down. I do not use mine daily but when I do use it I'm happy I have it and works great.

    Re: Steam cleaners?

    I totally agree about the VX5000 if you have that kind of money to spend. I did research on steamers for around 2 weeks before I made my choice. The Vapamore is a great machine, but in the end I chose the McCulloch MC1385. The McCulloch steams for up to 2 hours, has a bigger tank, longer hose, and I think it has a little more psi. On the other hand, the Vapamore has a lifetime warranty and a stainless steel boiler. I would suggest that you get what you can afford because the 1385 does a great job. I only detail part time on the weekends, and I use my 1385 on every interior that I do and it works great. If you search the board on here, you will find a long thread about the 1385 that has some reviews, links, etc. Hope this helps!
