Review of YellowWing Vapor Steamer Cleaner

The YellowWing Vapor Steamer Cleaner is a steam cleaner manufactured for residential use. It heats up for use in approximately 12 minutes, and the steam is heated to about 220 degrees Fahrenheit. Hot enough to kill dust mites, viruses, mold, bacteria, and other allergens. This cleaner uses plain water only; no chemical cleaning agents are required.

The YellowWing has fingertip control over the steam released. There is an on/off trigger switch on the handle which allows you to shut off the steam flow and prevent accidental burns.

The YellowWing is priced from about $399 from internet retailers, and is backed by a 1 year warranty. The YellowWing is compact and lightweight; it weighs just 10.2 lbs without water.

YellowWing Vapor Steamer Cleaner Features:

  • High temperature steam
  • On board pressure gauge
  • Water capacity
  • For use on multiple surfaces
  • Standard accessories

High Temperature Steam:

It takes just 12 minutes to heat the water up to 220 degrees Fahrenheit. This means in 12 minutes, you have steam hot enough to destroy many types of allergens, and if you are an allergy sufferer who can’t tolerate chemical smells, no additional chemicals are needed with this vapor steamer. The vapor steam destroys dust mites, bacteria, viruses, germs, mold, and fungi, on contact, and also dissolves grease and dirt from a variety of surfaces.

On Board Pressure Gauge:

The significance of the on board pressure gauge is that it is easy to regulate the vapor steamer for maximum cleaning pressure.

Boiler capacity:

The YellowWing has a boiler capacity of 1.5 liters of water. This produces enough steam for about one hour worth of cleaning time. If the boiler needs to be refilled, it must first be cooled for about 20 minutes.

Multiple Surface Uses:

The YellowWing can be used on many different types of surfaces. The only surfaces which the manufactured suggests not using the YellowWing are those that are fairly sensitive, such as silk fabrics or Persian type rugs. The YellowWing Vapor Steamer is designed to steam clean surfaces such as carpet, windows, sealed hardwood floors, linoleum, toilets, sinks, ovens, brick, and tile grout to name a few. The YellowWing produces low moisture vapor which means almost no damp surfaces are left behind. Typically hard surfaces are dry and ready to use in about 3 minutes.

Standard Accessories:

The YellowWing comes standard with a number of brush attachments including a small round brass brush, small round nylon brush, small 3 way triangular brush, and medium 3- way round nylon brush, large triangular brush, and a large rectangular brush with carpet protector. It also comes 2 extension wands, 3-way directional vapor nozzle, and one holed vapor nozzle. 3 cotton towels, a filler bottle, and a funnel also come standard. And of course it wouldn’t be complete without an owner’s manual and instructional DVD.

YellowWing Vapor Steamer Cleaner Recommendations:

Reviewers did not find too many negative things about the YellowWing Vapor steamer. The most common statement was that the boiler only holds about 1.5 liters of water or 0.4 gallon of water, and the steam generated only last about 1 hour or so. Then you have to wait 20 minutes or so to let the boiler cool down before you can refill it. This may mean you need to be organized in your cleaning, and think carefully about what you are going to accomplished in that hour.

The pluses of this cleaner is that it is relatively affordable, it is compact and lightweight for easy maneuverability, and with the combination of cord length, hose length, and extension wands means that you can reach many areas without searching for another electric outlet. One of the bonuses with the vapor steam cleaners, is they use only water to clean with. This means you’ll save money but not having to purchase a bunch of different types of cleaning products, but you’ll also not have to worry about disposing of a lot of empty containers.

Reviewers wrote they were impressed that such a lightweight piece of cleaning equipment could do such a great job. They also thought it was fast, and cleaned thoroughly. The attachments were also easy to attach and detach.
