Not only can you safely clean floors and countertops, the Ladybug has even been used to blast weeds out from crevices in their sidewalks.
The Ladybug vapor steam cleaner uses very little water, so surfaces are dry almost instantly.
Like other models the Ladybug makes, the 2200 has the continuous fill feature.
This means you don’t need to cool down the boiler before you add more water, as it has a separate non pressurized water reservoir that holds 1.4 liters of water.
The Ladybug 2200 also has a low water light and an audible signal that warns you when you are almost out of available water to convert to steam.
This model also has a pressure gauge, so you are able to monitor steam levels at a glance.
For easy maneuvering, the Ladybug 2200 is built with 4 swivel wheels and so you can easily reach above the floor or tough to reach areas, the 2200 comes with a 6.7 foot steam hose.

- Nylon brushes for tile and grout
- 2 extension wands
- Large rectangular brush

The available TANCS option adds a few hundred dollars to the price, but may be well worth it if you can afford it.
With TANCS, which stands for Thermal Activated Nano Crystal Sanitation system, you’ll get an EPA certified disinfecting system.
The 2200 with TANCS is certified to disinfect without the use of any additional chemicals.
Adding this option also extends the warranty period on the boiler to 8 years.
TANCS prevents scale buildup in the boiler which extends the life of the boiler.
TANCS also reduces water usage, and shortens drying time.
Ladybug Vapor Steam Cleaner Recommendations:
This model is recommended. If your budget allows for it, purchase the model with TANCS.
You’ll have the peace of mind of the additional warranty period, and the unit will require less maintenance since there is less scale build-up.
Has a pressure gauge for monitoring steam levels.
No soapy residue is left behind which can attract more dirt.
The user does not need sponges, mops, buckets, or cleaning solutions.
Since you are not using any chemical cleaners, you don’t have to worry about damaging your skin by exposing it to harsh chemicals.
The price tag. Ladybugs are expensive, but because they are built out of premium materials such as stainless steel boilers, they are built to last.
The Ladybug uses electricity to generate steam, and it does use electricity.
You’ll probably notice an increase in your utility bill.
This model does not have onboard tool storage.
You may find it more convenient to purchase a separate caddy to keep the attachments in so they are handy when you need them.
