In addition to sweeping the floors, vacuuming, dusting and changing the linens, this is the time of year a lot of people give their guest bathroom a facelift. It is, after all, a room that will soon be getting a lot of use.
One of the easiest ways to transform a bathroom from drab to fab is by removing the old, ugly wallpaper, so why don't more people do it? "A lot of people put off projects involving wallpaper removal because they dread the idea of working with harsh chemicals. What they don't realize is that good old fashioned steam works just as well if not better, and it's a lot more environmentally friendly," says Denis Tierney, product manager at Wagner Spray Tech, makers of the new On-Demand 905 Power Steamer.
In addition to being extremely effective at wallpaper removal, as it softens glue for easy removal almost instantly, the On-Demand 905 Power Steamer comes with a dozen attachments that make it a versatile cleaning tool.
The machine's jet nozzle with fingertip control allows the user to choose between a continuous and intermittent stream of steam – so they can get as much or as little steam as they need for a particular job. It is useful in the bathroom for cleaning mold, mildew and water stains off shower stalls, tubs, floors and sinks; in the kitchen for cleaning grease and grime off cook tops and ovens; and for removing grime from barbeque grills.
Also included is a squeegee that can be used to clean windows and tile; and an attachment specifically for cleaning dirty floors. In bedrooms, living and family rooms, steam cleaning is an effective and environmentally friendly way of killing mites and reducing allergen levels in carpets. The machine also comes with two extension tubes that make it easy to use in hard to reach places.
The On Demand 905 Power Steamer is available in hardware stores and home improvement centers nationwide. For more information, visit www.wagnerspraytech.com or call (800) 328-8251 Monday-Friday 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Central Time.
