To choose your steamer correctly, you must first observe the offers by area of use. Indeed, a professional appliance will not be more effective at home, because it is primarily designed for intensive use and to remove wrinkles on new fabrics.

All the description sheets for Gecko-Steamer steamers offer an exhaustive list of technical characteristics.
Electrical power is an important element that tells you how quickly the appliance produces steam. For a conventional garment steamer, this power has a direct relationship to the volume of steam emitted, for a pressurized steamer only affects the pressure rise time of the tank. This value is not the essential characteristic to make your choice, but it is important to anticipate the load on the electrical network that constitutes a clothes steamer in operation. You should consider as basic information for the performance of the device, the flow rate and the pressure of the steam. The greater the quantity of steam emitted, the faster the work.
The steam flow (g/min) is the volume of steam produced by your appliance. It is the useful work force that the steamer diffuses and that will have a direct impact on the efficiency of the steam depending on the type of fabric. There is always a tendency to want a large volume of "pressing effect" steam, and this is often a mistake, because too much steam can over-humidify the fabric and make it more sensitive to creases when handling it. The steam flow rates of the devices sold on this site are sufficient to meet all needs. A minimum of 35g/min is still required to have an efficient work.
The vapor pressure is as important as the flow. If you are steaming thin materials or new clothes, a pressure of 1 bar is sufficient. If you want to remove creases on thick materials like cotton, jeans… choose a pressure of 4 to 5 bars. "Who can do more can do less" "so you gain versatility in use.
All of our appliances are equipped with boilers designed to operate with tap water. Tap water is an economic and ecological resource that should be privileged. You will find in the instructions for use all the information you need to maintain and ensure the longevity of your steamer.
