Are High Pressure Clothes Steamer better?

Clothes steamers have been used in commercial settings like retail, factories and dry cleaners for years. In recent years, clothes steamers have made their way into our homes. They take away creases from a range of materials without the need for an iron or an ironing board. Material from delicate suits, wedding dresses, saris, Punjabi suits, soft furnishings, bedding and more are safe with clothes steamers as they don’t touch the material with a hot ironing plate and only use steam. 

High Pressure Clothes Steamer Technology

However in 2019, the technology has updated, and products like the Fridja f1500 High Pressure Clothes Steamer have been released, but what is a high pressure clothes steamer? In this article, we’ll explain how a high pressure clothes steamer can be more effective on a range of different materials when compared to traditional clothes steamers.

High Pressure Clothes Steamer

Traditional clothes steamers work using one boiler. Water travels from a water tank into a water reservoir, and then reaches a boiler inside the machine. This heats the water and the steam that is created is guided out of the machine via a hose and float onto the clothes. Steam realigns fibres, takes away creases all whilst reducing mild odours and refreshing fabrics.

Although high pressure clothes steamers work on the same principle they have a few extra features which help get the job done faster. Water travels from the water tank to the water reservoir and then to a first boiler inside the main unit, the same as traditional clothes steamers. High pressure clothes steamers, however, have a second boiler in the handle. Instead of steam coming out constantly like traditional clothes steamers, you have to press a button for the steam to come out. However, when the steam does come out it is blasted out at a much higher pressure, up to 5 bars.

High Pressure Clothes Steamers are strong

As well as the steam coming out at a much more powerful and fast rate, the steamer head is designed differently to traditional clothes or garment steamers. The steamer head has a heated metal plate, similar to an iron. When the plate is hot, difficult thick materials like linen, heavy cotton and denim are much easier to remove creases from. The combination of a heated metal ironing plate and thick, fast and powerful high pressure steam means that removing creases from clothes is much easier.

The best way to use is to apply a thick layer of steam, and the follow through with the ironing steam head, pressing against the ironing board. This will give a perfect finish.

Delicate Clothing

Having a hot ironing plate on high pressure clothes steamers means you also need another layer of protection when steaming delicate clothes and fabrics such as silk, chiffon, lace and even polyester. A delicate fabric guard like the one below puts a barrier between the hot ironing plate and your delicate clothes.

That means that suits or wedding dresses do not need to come into contact with the hot ironing plate, so will never go shiny or get damaged.

Ideal Home Magazine were also lovely enough to award us the best compact vertical steamer award!

Cute and available in bright colours, this is the smallest vertical steamer on test. It takes up the space of a small cylinder vacuum cleaner, and looks like one too. It’s quick to assemble and the pole is telescopic, so it shrinks down small. The fold-up clothes hanger attaches to the front of the pole and a hook attaches to the back, to hold the steam head when not in use.
