A review of Polti steam cleaners and their various models.
Polti company was founded by Franco Polti in 1978. This company has a philosophy of
innovation and sought to use the power of steam to make house work
easier. Their first main
product was the steam iron.
In 1983 the Vaporetto was invented. This is a steam cleaning machine that was meant to clean while being environmentally friendly. The Polti steam cleaner was born, however Polti did not just stop at producing steam irons and steam cleaners.
They developed a vacuum cleaner with a water filter called the Lecologico and then the Vaporetto Lecoaspira. This machine is a combination of the vacuum, steam cleaner and water filter that is capable of cleaning, washing, suctioning, drying and filtering the air.
Today, this company still produces all of its products in Italy which allows the company to retain full control of all processes and maintain quality to the highest standard. They produce cleaners for both the home and industrial use, and we shall now look at some of their top performers.
Most of the vapor cleaners by Polti can be bought from their official website, but only some are available from Amazon. This model is the Polti 1030R Vaporetto Steam cleaner and is the first of their steamers we will review.
