The Steamfast SF-370WH is a canister steam cleaner that looks rather unassuming. Just by looking at it, you wouldn’t think it would be anything special. However, as I began to put it to use, I noticed that it had a number of great features that made it invaluable to use around the house. That it wasn’t a generic steamer but a powerful 1500-watt steamer that could not only handle the upholstery I needed cleaned but could do a number of jobs around my home.
One of the very first things that impressed me about this model was the number of attachments it came with – about 15 of them total. These attachments included a couple of microfiber pads and a couple of nylon utility brushes, a jet nozzle, a couple of extension wands, a brass utility brush, a squeegee, a sponge pad, a mop head and a scrub pad. Oh, and let’s not forget the measuring cup which makes it much easier to put the correct amount of water into this couch steamer.
Once I had filled it up with water, it took about eight minutes to reach the correct temperature for cleaning – which is pretty fast. I was then able to take it around my home and use it on all my upholstery. I used it on my sofa and couch, on my husband’s recliner and on the ottoman at the end of my bed. I noticed that it did a great job with just about any fabric I used it on – from natural fabrics to synthetics. Of course, I didn’t try it on wool or leather, but it did a bang-up job with everything else I had in my home.
This upholstery steam cleaner would’ve been the perfect model for me and my household if it wasn’t for one little flaw. After extended use, this model can produce steam that is a little bit too moist. I’m not sure if it’s because water is pooling up in the hose while it’s been used or what, but it does tend to spit after awhile. Not enough to make it unusable but just enough to annoy me.
There’s one last thing I’d like to say about this steamer. It’s not just good for cleaning upholstery, it’s also good for other projects around the home. It can be used to clean just about any surface that you can think to clean and it will do a good job. It might not be the very best steam cleaner but it’s pretty close. It’s definitely a model that I would recommend for all types of cleaning around the home.
