When sanitizing steps are taken (focusing the steam for a specific amount of time, per that particular steam mop's instructions) steam cleaning can help reduce bacteria. Oreck's Steam-It, VersaVac and Grab-It & Steam-It produce temperatures hot enough to reduce bacteria such as e-coli and staph and clean grease and oil. These Oreck steam products can all sanitize hard floor surfaces. The surfaces that you steam clean are dry within minutes.
