    Steam on its own will clean the tiles but not the grout will lift grease etc from the grout but won't touch the staining

    Looks similar to x5 steam mop great for that and chrome and stainless cleaning and scale removal great for cleaning car and van seats also good for curtains blinds upholstery will clean carpets to some extent but no replacement for professional carpet cleaning machines but grout is down to a good bit of elbow grease and some chemicals bleach etc

    For tile grout if white try toothpaste on toothbrush don't use coloured toothpaste stains more than it removes or try bleach with toothbrush silicone sealant soak a cloth in bleach and leave rolled cloth on top of silicone for couple of hours and then scrub wipe clean another wives tale for cleaning tiles mix 1 cup of ammonia 1 cup vinegar and 1/2 cup washing soda in a bucket of warm water wash tiles and rinse well after for chrome fittings apply white vinegar with polishing cloth and rub to remove rubbing alcohol is a good chrome cleaner too

    There is an advert on my screen for the vax special offer of £99.99 lol


    Dunno never used one so cant comment.

    ALthough I know steam itself is good at cleaning things and getting rid of bacteria etc
