Sienna Eco Canister Steam Cleaner SSC-0312 Review (Carpet)

Making it into the number three spot on my carpet steam cleaner reviews list is the Sienna Eco-Canister Steam Cleaner SSC-0312. This little system looks kind of small but it has a number of things going for it. One, it’s priced competitively with all of the other carpet steam cleaners on this list. Two, it’s environmentally friendly and three, it did a pretty fine job on my carpet.

This system holds 40 ounces of water, which translates into about 35 minutes of steam. It is also extremely portable and has a long hose so it is easy to use. And since no chemicals are required for all but the dirtiest floors, it is very friendly to the environment.

In fact, I keep mentioning that it is environmentally friendly because I was able to get up most stains on my carpet without using any chemicals whatsoever. It simply steamed them clean. And I do have to say that it got most stains out of my carpet. If it is so good, you ask, then why is it only number 3 on my list? Well, that’s because it is far from a perfect solution for carpet cleaning.

One thing that I didn’t like about the unit was that the trigger was hard to operate. Sure, you can lock the trigger but then you are stuck with no way of regulating steam. That’s not ideal for my circumstances. Another thing I didn’t like is that it didn’t have a way for me to find out if it had water in it. It would just run out in the middle of a job and then I’d have to go fill it.

All things considered, I think this is a great overall system—if you want to clean other surfaces and not just carpets. It does a decent job on carpets and can also clean a lot more surfaces. However, if you are looking for a dedicated carpet cleaner that will do the best job possible, then you might want to check out on of the other cleaners on my list. Those units did a better job at deep-down cleaning.
