When it comes to Fall cleaning, one of the things I focus on is getting rid of all the dust and dirt that made it’s way in the house, during the summer months. In our new house we have a few different types of flooring on the main floor, which means that dirt and grime get stuck in the floor transitions. It’s particularly bad in this house because I don’t think the transitions were ever cleaned before we moved in (or anytime in the last 22 years)!
I tried getting this gunk out with my regular steam mop, but because of the difference in flooring surfaces it didn’t work. Luckily HomeRight makes the SteamMachine, which was exactly what I needed to get rid of this gunk.
I attached the small scrub brush to the steam wand and used it to steam the dirt right out of the transition.
It was pretty gross because I got to see how much dirt was actually in there, but it felt good once it was all gone!
I cleaned all the transitions from wood flooring to laminate and it looked MUCH better when I was done.
Another place summer dirt likes to hide is in all the nooks and crannies of fireplaces, appliances, etc. I used the SteamMachine to get rid of the gunk in these spots too.
I didn’t have to do any scrubbing, that SteamMachine literally blew the dirt right out of this corner!
Much better. I even steamed the caulking around the fireplace and it lightened up a few shades. (Seriously how can people let things get this dirty?!)
The other place in my kitchen that had gathered quite a bit of filth (you might gag when you see this picture) were the transition around all my appliances. I used the small wire scrub brush attached to the steam wand, and the grime came right off.
The steam even lightened up the floor a little. Every time I steam mop these floors they get one shade lighter. The house was SERIOUSLY filthy when we moved in.
There are lots of places where summer dirt, and dust, accumulate that you could use the steam want to get rid of it. For example behind, and around the toilet, the thresholds of all the doors, etc. These are just a few of them, to print my complete Fall Cleaning checklist click HERE.

The angled adapter looks like an awesome tool to clean grout with!
I’m SO excited about the jet nozzle! I’ve been wanting a good way to naturally kill germs and clean without chemicals for a long time. I’m really impressed with how well this steam cleaner has worked. Thanks for the post! Keep up the great job!
My house could use this!!
BTW, the small scrub brush would be most helpful, as I too have a couple different types of flooring in my house!
April L says
Love this! I have the same problem with floor transitions, and I’m such a dork that a steam mop is actually on my Christmas list. This would be perfect for us!
I would use the scrub brush to get the baseboards around the kitchens and bathrooms. I am unable to get up from the floor…so I can’t get down to detail clean. This would help a lot!!!!
I like the grout attachment!
Thanks for the chance! I’m most excited about the small attachment for cleaning grout around appliances and toilets. Nasty!
Oh my! I would love to have that cleaner….especially to clean around toilets!
I like the large flat attachment for countertops and large flat surfaces
Tara H says
I love that small brush!
Nancy Carr says
They have an attachment to clean grout. Wow! I can use this. Thank you.
The SteamMachine looks great….especially the small attachment for cleaning around the appliances and the grout.
I have to choose just one attachment! Oh, how will I pick? Well, I suppose if I have to limit it to one, I’ll pick the steam mop. My laminate flooring could use a super deep clean.
Jennie Busteed says
I am most excited about the oven cleaning attachment on steam cleaner.
I want that scrubber. It looks amazing!!
I like the grout attachment
Anne Haun says
The scrub brush appeals to me especially the small one.
I love using steam to clean. Sometimes I can leave my steam mop on a place a bit and it will help get the yuk up, but it seems this machine would be much easier to use.
Anna, I was wondering if I could use this on a small area on my carpet? My cat had an accident and I was hoping this would work on getting rid of the smell.
The mop head or the nylon bush heads would be what I would want to use.
Kristine F says
I could use this in sooooo many ways in my house! Looks awesome. Thanks for the opportunity.
amy pugmire says
The scrub brush looks amazing! It would be nice to have a clean house for once. Its hard with three little ones.
I could really use the brass brush attachment! I think it would be very useful for cleaning the oven and the grill. Thanks for the great giveaway!
Nancy Bowers says
I like the small scrub brush.
I want to use the scrub brush!
Carla S. says
Great post. I have this problem of floor transitions too. This would be wonderful to have for so many things. Thanks for the great giveaway.
This would be great! We just moved into a new home and could really use it to clean all of the corners.
carlene shope says
I really need this steam cleaner.
Amy B says
Do I have to pick 1? 🙂 I think that the small nylon attachment will help me get the group clean in my shower, the places where the wall meets the floor… all the little grooves in the kitchen floor, the oven. I could go on for a while. I WANT THIS!
Karen P. says
Kills 99% of ALL germs and bacteria.! Hello Steam Machine. Where have you been all my life. 🙂
Karen P. says
The angled adapter to clean grout, ya baby!
Anna, You’re my favorite blogger right now! Your tips are practical, short and easy!
I am excited about the Jet Nozzle! Living with a house full of boys, our bathroom would benefit greatly from this!!
My steamcleaner quit on me a loooooong time ago. It’ll be good to have one again if I win the contest…especially the stove and oven attachment! 🙂
Karen M says
I would love the steam mop attachment!
We just got a new puppy. I cannot tell you how much I need to sanitize my floors right now!!
Robin B. says
I have some nooks and crannies that could use a good steam cleaning. Also my fireplace would get a good cleaning.
I need that Jet Nozzle attachment. Dog + Cat + Husband = gross things in corners.
Bonnie @ Uncommon Designs says
That little scrub brush attachment would be awesome!
Wow….I have so many nooks and crannies that are really awful and didn’t know something like this existed!
Rachel H says
Would LOVE this! We have a baby with Cystic Fibrosis. Cleaning without harsh chemicals is essential for good lung function for him. This would be awesome to keep our floors clean, toys, too! The attachment I LOVE is the jet nozzle.
Cindy Bechinski says
Wow, there are so many different attachments, I can use them all but the little scrubby attachment!!
Would love to win one of these. Looks like it would make my cleaning so much easier and more efficient.
As for which attachment, there isn’t one in particular. I would use all of them. I have several different types of flooring that could use several of those attachments. I also have a rock fireplace and a brick fireplace that the nylon brushes would have fun meeting. Not to mention the 3 bathrooms that I would love to clean with any of the attachments.
Yuck! My carpet has been down for 40 years. Just imagine what is lurking in the cracks! P
The wall cleaning attachment!
Oh my gosh, what a great machine!!! I would so love to win this!!! Thank you for the sweet fall cleaning check list!!!
Janel in NJ
kelly D says
I am most excited about the Squeegee Attachment.
Kara Williams says
I love how the floors look now. I could REALLY use one of those Steam Machines in my house. Can we say 2 dogs, a husband and a 3 1/2 year old with a ton of sand in the yard? Makes for a LOT of dirt. Oh, and I have allergies.
Ty Gray says
What An awesome giveaway! I want to win 🙂
Jill Lord says
I am so very happy that I came across your website. My friend had shared it with me and said “You have got to check this site out.” So, here I am 🙂 I love all your recipes and ideas. But, what I love the most is when I read that you serve an incredible God and are blessed. LOVED reading that. I was blessed to come across your site and truly blessed bc your a believer. I can’t wait to get into more of your site. Thanks for your time. Blessings, Jill L.
Jill Lord says
Oh, forgot to share what I like most about the steamer…EVERYTHING! I could put it all to good use. I have 3 kids and I babysit. So, I like to keep my home clean and sanitized.
Awesome, thank you for that sweet comment Jill!
I don’t even want to think about all the dirt that’s hiding in between the cracks of my floor! I definitely am long overdue for this.
Dawn Phelan says
I love that it also has a fabric steamer attachment so you can clean all around the house and get the wrinkles out of your clothes.
The steam plate would be excellent to clean mattresses with!
All the attachments would be so useful but I’d say the scrubbing one would be most useful. Would so love to embrace cleaning without chemicals in our home
Oh,I could so use this with 4 kids, a dog and a husband who all track in dirt..plus we live in military housing and the last tenants left some lovely nastiness for us to clean.
I have a dog in the house so I could seriously use a Steam Mop! I think I would possibly use the nylon brush the most – it seems that it could scrub without damaging the surfaces.
Roxanne Loughlin says
I have bathrooms that have original wallpaper from the 1980’s!! The wallpaper is still “stuck like glue” on the walls so I’ve been reticent to even attempt removal. It was supposed to be dry-strippable……uh, not so much! Would love to be able to steam it off with that amazing HomeRight Steam machine wallpaper attachment!
Sarah L says
the jet nozzle
Debbe King says
I would love the grout attachment! My grout in my shower is terrible!!! I’d love to clean it with this!
Ellen B says
Two nylon brushes is something I think I would use a lot
I would love to be able to clean all the cracks and crevices and know that it will be sanitized naturally without all kinds of chemicals 🙂
I would love to win the SteamMachine, Looks like it does a great job!
I had a little steamer and a stream mop that I loved right up until they died on me. This looks like it knocks both of those out of the park. I may just buy one if I don’t win one.
I highly recommend it, this machine is AWESOME!!!
Im hoping this will help with all the tile in my house and in my bathrooms!
This is amazing! I have a floor steam cleaner, but I’m excited thinking of all the different places I could use this!!
I think my favorite piece would be the SteamMachine Jet Nozzle to clean the nooks & crannies around base boards & appliances.
I would totally love the steam machine! The clean pictures look amazing. I am a little scared to see what I could get out of the corners of my appliances…..:)
And I would use it to clean the seats in my car. They are so dirty and I would love to be able to tote this to the garage and get them clean!
The attachments for cleaning small spaces in the bathroom. Sounds like a great tool for keeping clean!
Holly Storm-Burge says
The Floor steam mop with microfiber cleaning pad!
Robynn Trzynka says
No doubt the jet nozzle is the way to CLEAN! This is a must have. 🙂

Sue Speed says
What a great product!
I love the floor steam mop cause I have white linoleum in my bathrooms and I hate it!
D SCHMIDT says
My favorite attachment is the one for wall paper steaming
Looks like an awesome addition to my cleaning appliances! 🙂
I would love them all! But the one for my floors would be so nice!!
I can’t decide between the floor mop and the jet nozzle to clean around toilets etc. Either one would make my life so much easier, and to have both gets me really excited! Cleaning=excitement: I must be a mom!! :o)
SteamMachine Small Brass Brush for ovens and grills!
Christy S. Lube says
The jet nozzle sounds fun 8)
Carol I. says
I would love to use the attachment for the grease & grim on the oven … wonder how amazing it would be on a grill!
Stephanie Lanphear says
I’m most excited about the small scrub brush!
I keep eyeballing this steamer from Homeright! Would love to get one!
I loved the jet nozzle and the fabric steamer attachments. I think I would use these the most. Thanks for Fall Cleaning List I needed this one.
Saw a tutorial on the steammachine site about how to use the little brass brush attachments to clean the inside of an oven which is my Achilles Heel!. Would love to have one of these to get my stove squeaky clean!
I love all of the attachments! The grout attachment would be really useful!
The small scrub brush would really help for my floors.
I am right in the middle of remodeling our master bedroom and bath and also taking out all of the carpeting in house and replacing it with tile. I’m really excited to see the SteamMachine and thank you for your blog – I see myself keeping the floors in beautiful shape and I absolutely LOVE the hand held steam cleaner to clean the grout <<<<< that is my favorite! Thanks Anna!!
Ashleigh H says
I love the metal brush and the angled tip for grout!!
I love the scrub brush for all those little nooks and crannies!
I can’t even believe how much dirt would come out of the creases in my house. I have severe back pain and pushing the mop around doesn’t cut it. So all of the attachments would be needed. I hope I win!
Chris Evans says
I am excited for the jet nozzle. Got something funky on the outside of my shower door that nothing else will remove. Plus, who isn’t interested in less chemicals? Thank you for all your helpful tuts you have here!
Chris Evans says
Already asked my hubby to get me one of these for Christmas! Most excited about the jet nozzle!
Joyce M. says
SteamMachine Squeegee Attachment
esther s says
I have four boys, cleaning up after them us a constant. This steam mop is what I have been looking for, for a long time. It would be a blessing to have one for my home.
Would love to win the steam machine!
Lauren @ Mom Home Guide says
I like the small scrub brush — there is dirt along the edge of the flooring by our front door, and I can’t get it out for the life of me!
The jet nozzle, looks like fun!!
I will just be beginning married life next May and moving into my first real apartment with my future husband. Living in a college town, a lot of the apartments are really not as clean as they originally look and it drives me nuts! So the mop head would be perfect for cleaning everything right off the bat!!
Perfect timing….fall clean up here i come!
Jennifer B says
I am torn between the squeegee and the fabric steamer attachments. Both could come in really handy around here!
Amanda Nardo says
I would really like to try using the steam machine on my travertine tiles in the kitchen. They are difficult to clean properly without leaving residue or water marks.
I love the scrub brush! This would be so handy!
I live in a house with floor transitions too so I would love to clean out all of the gunk with the wand!
Great post! I like to use a hard toothbrush to get into these areas. It works really well.
Ginger Subers says
I’m excited about the window cleaning attachment.
Lisa Dozier says
I would love the grout extension, the microfiber floor cloth, the brass bristle brush—everything!!! I would LOVE one of these!
Kathy W says
I will be remodeling my home next year and have quite a bit of wallpaper to remove so I would have to say the wallpaper steam plate! Thanks for the chance to win.
The grout attachment for sure!
Jeanette M C says
The brush. I have tile all throughout my house.
Lori Saros says
I am excited about the grout attachment!!
Denise Williams says
I would totally love to win one of these. My Shark steam mop finally broke and I can’t afford to replace it. I would use this to clean just about everything! Thanks for the chance to win,
I would love to try the squeegee!
That little steam machine really got that gross gunk out!!!
I would love the small brush attachment to clean where my cabinets meet the floor.
I’m most excited about the jet nozzle, because you would be able to get in all of the cracks & crevices to steam out the dirt!
I LOVE to clean, just ask my family, and would also LOVE to win this prize. I would like the steam mop, our new house has almost all laminate floors and between a big dog, teens and living in MT, they get tracked up a lot.
Debra Schramm says
Awesome giveaway. I could really use this.
Debra Schramm says
I love the jet nozzle. Especially fr cleaning around the base of the toilet.
Renee Kuehn says
The wire scrub brush looks like it would get in all of those nooks and crannies that seem to attract dirt like a magnet!
deb huffman says
I really need this
The wallpaper removal attachment would help me tremendously right now. My bathroom wallpaper needs to come down desperately and this would make it SO much easier!!
I really love that nozzle that they show cleaning around the toilet. I have two sons, and a husband. Enough said?
I would love the nozzle to clean around faucets.
Just found your blog…can’t wait to do more exploring!
Emily Humphries says
I would have to say the little brush you used on the crack between your floors is what I’m most excited about I have some seriously small places that need some major cleaning.
Any of the attachments that will help me with crevices! Looks like there are a few to help with that
Lou Ann Newell says
I could use all of the attachments!! My house really needs a good cleaning!! I like the attachment for the grout cleaning the best! But then you have the one for the oven cleaning.,. one for the edges between rooms or even how about cleaning around the sink in the kitchen!! Mine needs a deep cleaning!! I would love to have this product!!
Adrienne Seal says
I’d find plenty of uses for the nylon brushes.
All the tools look amazing but I think the floor mop would be the most used since we have orders to Okinawa, Japan where most of the base housing had hard floors (no carpet) throughout the entire house.
Mary S. says
The fabric streamer. It would be awesome for making drapes, clothes and upholstery wrinkle free without having to iron.
Love the floor cleaner.. We just moved into a house that had been empty for 2 yrs. 5 rooms of Spanish Tile and windows that look like milk. This would be the answer!
Marcia Walker says
I would like to try them all honestly. I would like to try it indoors and outdoors on my windows and screens. I have always enjoyed sites that endorse cleaning with natural products. You just cant beat steam cleaning.
Janet Nichols says
Now I am going to be looking at transitions throughout my house today!! Love the window cleaning attachment!
I like the steam mop attachment!
Renee Kuehn says
I love the small wire brush!
We have a tile floor that was never sealed. This would work great so we could clean it super good before sealing it.
Love the squeegee
Linda Crowder says
I think I would use the Jet Nozzle attachment the most….it looks to be very versatile.
Thanks for the chance to win one of these great machines!
Sara Z says
I love the jet nozzle! So cool that it steams and sanitizes the dirt right out!
Jan C says
Love the idea of the jet nozzle and the small scrub brush. I have transitions in my flooring that this would be great for. The whole system would be great for rental homes when renters move out. Love, Love, Love this system
I also have many floor transitions and raised thresholds that collect dirt. This looks like a great cleaning tool for many purposes. I like the idea of the fabric steamer attachment. I hate ironing clothes. This would be a wonderful alternative to that.
Jenna J says
Wow! Seeing how well this cleaned around your appliances, I’m definitely going to need one in our new home! That wire scrub brush will be perfect to get all of that old grime out!
I like the grout cleaning attachment as I hate spending the time it takes to get grout clean. I would love to steam clean the toilets!!! Way better than trying to scrub in all those gross places!! What a great way to clean without chemicals too!
April Anders says
We move every 4 years so this would come in handy. It looks like a solid model.
I’m most excited about the grout cleaning attachment, because I really don’t like cleaning grout! This seems like it would make it much easier!
Lisa Dozier says
I would love to use a steam cleaner for everything! Steam cleaning my son’s toys would be great! I would use every attachment!
Really, I’m most excited about the floor steam mop attachment. Cleaning my hard wood floors is what I need it most for. Hopefully, I would get exited about the other attachments, too, but I’m starting at zero.
Brenda Priest says
Awesome for deep cleaning.
With 4 dogs, 2 cats, and 3 teenage boys, I think this would be a necessity in our house. I would look forward to the floor getting lighter every time I use it, too 🙂
The attachment to clean ovens looks awesome!
The squeegee attachment looks super handy!
I think that both the jet nozzle and the small scrub brush look fantastic for heling to blast and scrub out dirt and grime. Goodness knows,, we have enough of that around here! 🙂
After 20 years in the same house, I’m seeing lots of grunge along baseboards and flooring, that doesn’t come clean with regular cleaning. I’m thinking that steam mop is the perfect solution!
Oops! I think the jet nozzle would work great for cleaning those hard to reach places that have gotten so grungy.
The large brush mop head would probably work wonders on my old, nasty textured vinyl floor in the kitchen. It takes hours with a magic eraser to make the floors half way presentable.
OMG, I would love to have one of these steam machines to clean all kinds of things in my house. I love the idea of the attachments to clean the toilet and stove/oven in particular. Thanks!
The steam plate…I have 20 year old wallpaper that NEEDS to come down!!!
Holly F says
the smallest brush attachment to get around the base of the toilets – two small boys in the house!
I would love this cleaning tool!
Amber P. says
I would love anything that helps me keep my bathroom clean!! With two kids potty training I feel like it’s always dirty!!
I want the steam mop!
Sarah B says
Love the jet nozzle for high powered cleaning – its fun and useful at the same time 🙂
Sarah C says
SOO useful! My kitchen needs one!
Andrea Lingenfelter says
Would love to have this for all my nooks and crannies!
Maria M says
My brick floors could use the floor attachment, and the grout attachment would be wonderful to clean between the brick. 🙂
Tracey Hall says
How much simpler my life would be with a steam cleaner – no more hands and knees sacrificed for clean floors 🙂
Tracey Hall says
How much simpler my life would be (not to mention the pain of sore knees and back) using this steamer!! 🙂
Tracey Hall says
Oops – please remove one of my comments -I am so anxious to win I posted 2 – sorry!!
Heather H says
What a great product!
Lori Doron says
I would use the floor steamer because with a Great Dane and a kitten, there is lots to clean…
Blessie Nelson says
I am most excited about the Steam Machine Large Brass Brush which will effectively remove all grime without breaking a sweat!
Blessie Nelson says
We just moved into a new house recently and there is so much of grime and dirt that an average cleaning by us couldn’t get off. I would be so excited to use the steam machine to revamp our house for a house warming party and inaugurate our home!
The steam nozzle is perfect to clean the mold and dirt out of the tracks of my shower door. I’m so excited!! I don”t know what a URL is. Sorry.
http://www.pinterest.com/redteetop/products-i-love/ Here’s my URL. I had to look up what that means. LOL
I can’t wait to clean out my nooks and crannies in the kitchen with the brush nozzle!
I am most excited about the jet nozzle to get in the grooves of the toilet. With two boys and one about to start potty training this steamer would be a huge help in cleaning and sanitizing the bathroom!
Definitely the jet nozzle
Lauren @ Mom Home Guide says
The grout cleaning attachment would be great! I need that for my home’s main-level bathroom.
Lauren @ Mom Home Guide says
I think the jet nozzle would be very helpul! There are spots in my home that I can’t get clean with just elbow greese alone!
K garner says
I also just moved and like you I could use that small attachment to get into all those nooks and crannies.
I am most excited about the small scrubby attachment. I can clean all the gunk build up with out having to touch it!
Tabathia B says
the one to clean the oven
I could use any of the attachments. I especially love the grout cleaning attachment. My grout gets grimey!
The squeegee attachment! Not only is it fun to say but I really need something to take the water off my hardwoods as quickly as possible!
Chad R says
My family had owned the Shark steam mop. We loved, loved, loved this product until the day it broke! What I like about the steam mop you are featuring are all the add ons. You were able to tackle that dirt because of the attachments. One person will be a very happy winner!
Meg Karetny says
oooh Microfiber Chenille Mop Pad for SteamMachine sounds nice 🙂 thanks for this!!
I have low back problems and bending to scrub baseboards and all of the other places yucky stuff hide is really hard for me so having a wand with brushes and steam to do the work for me would be a God send.
Sara B says
I would love that fabric steamer attachment!
The scrub brush looks great!
I love your posts!!! 🙂
Carree Elsberry says
I am most excited about the jet nozzle to get in those hard to reach places, but honestly all the attachments are pretty exciting if you ask me!
Mary Pat says
The small brush adaptor to get into the tiny corner and crevices dirt likes to hide.
My kingdom for the grout cleaning attachment!
I would LOVE the tiny attachments to get into crevices where I previous had to use toothpicks!
Would love to win the steam machine. Great article on fall cleaning!
The attachment for mopping the floor, would be great on ceramic tile and using the brush attachments for corners and edges.
Beth Edwards says
I just want to try it 🙂 would be co to win though
Jennifer Caine says
I’m thinking the jet nozzle would be good to help with mold by my door. I also need something for my vinyl flooring.
Cindy A. says
Definitely the floor steam mop with microfiber cleaning pad!
Would love to win this this the nozzles would make cleaning tile and my stove a breeze
I’d love to win this!!!

Connie Banaska says
I like the grout cleaner but favorite thing is tat it’s on wheels.

I love the angled attachment to the steamer. With that I could clean those nasty areas behind the toilets that are always so hard to reach. Yuck!
anna p says
The jet nozzle!!!! clean all the grim from all the cracks and baseboards!!!
Hi, Anna. Nice blog.
My oven could do with this
Nanette Romo says
The jet nozzle…3 little boys make lots of dirt & grime!
