Groovy Green Livin Steam Cleaning HAAN

Steam cleaning isn’t something that’s generally on my radar. I get a lot of pitches to review products and some of them are a good fit for this site and others are not. When a  cool and interesting product lands on my desk I sometimes just feel the need to share.

When I was offered the opportunity to review the HAAN MultiforcePro SS-25 I was intrigued.

I was drawn to this product because there are no chemicals needed for steam cleaning. As a matter of fact, all HAAN products are 100% chemical free.

The steam cleaning happens with some high-speed scrubbing and buffing motion that works in tandem with 20 evenly dispersed steam jets. If you push a special button on the front of the cleaner the CR Motion™ (counter-reciprocating) kicks in. It basically creates a scrubbing action while the steam cleans….without any toxic chemicals!

The most impressive feature of this steam cleaner- you can use it inside and outside. The HAAN Multiforce Pro SS-25 Steam Cleaneris capable of cleaning almost any surface, including tile, vinyl, hardwood, laminate, carpet, wooden deck boards and stone patios. 

How to Use the MultiforcePro SS-25 for Steam Cleaning

I was a bit intimidated when I initially opened the box. There were quite a few pieces. After reading through the short instruction booklet I put the pieces together with little effort. I was ready for some steam cleaning.

Our home is mostly hard wood flooring with some tile and a bit of carpet mixed in.

There’s one area in our front foyer that is tiled. A small corner of the tile was where our dog’s bowl of water and food used to sit. Over time the grout has gradually turned a dark shade of dirty. I was resigned to the fact that this was the way it needed to stay until we ripped it out.

This was the area I was going to test out.

After the push of a button I was ready to go. The HAAN Multiforce Pro SS-25 Steam Cleaner makes a loud vibrating noise while the water is heating. It only takes about 44 seconds for the water to heat and then you’re good to go.

I went over the tiles a few times slowly. After letting it cool and dry off I think it made a difference. Some of the dirt was removed. I’m interested to see how it works on a carpet spill and on outdoor surfaces. According to HAAN, using their product kills 99.9% of common household germs, bacteria, and dust mites.

The HAAN Multiforce Pro SS-25 Steam Cleaner took home a “Best in Category” honor at the 2014 Housewares Design Awards.  Before that, it was named one of This Old House magazine’s Top 100 Best New Home Products of 2012.

  1. 100% chemical free! That’s incredible! Definitely will have to try it out on my tiled floors. Thanks for the post.

  2. I have been thinking about getting a steamer. I cook so much in my kitchen and am a bit of a messy cook so I think my house would look so much better if I got one!

  3. Did this machine clean the grout (as good as new) or just the flat tile surfaces? I mop my tile often, so don’t need a steam cleaner for flat surfaces. But am interested in a machine for the grout lines, so I don’t need to spend long hours on hands and knees scrubbing.

  4. Great question Barbara. I did try it on our grout and it was OK-not great. The grout was originally a light color and over the years has turned brown. It lightened up a bit, but it’s not as sparkly as it was.

  5. You might want to give it a try Leigh. What type of flooring do you have in your kitchen?

  6. It really is great that so many chemical-free options are appearing recently. I’ve personally been swayed to using the chemical free methods, especially with pets in the house.
