You would not use the same steam floor cleaner for your carpet as you would for your hardwood floors. A tip to clean a hardwood floor correctly is to first vacuum it with a good canister style and use the bare floor attachment. Then clean with a steam machine and not the type for carpets. One such product is the Sargent Steam cleaning home cleaning system. You will be impressed with how clean your floors are and there is no film left or smears.
Another new product is the antimicrobial steam floor cleaner. It cleans and sanitizes floors for up to one week due to the antibacterial solution in the steam. This particular cleaner has a separate compartment for the antibacterial solution and it merges with the water to form a continuous flow of steam, which is more effective than short bursts of steam.
