Simplify your cleaning while going green with Anvid Products.
Going Green with Steam
It’s one thing to clean when it is warm and sunny outside, it is another thing to clean while it is dark and dreary. Somehow, the bright sunny skies helps my mood when I clean. One cleaning task that I absolutely abhor is mopping the floors. I know it has to be done, but I am a procrastinator when it comes to that task. The reason why is because if I clean my floors the old fashioned way with a mop and bucket, I have to drag the bucket out along with the mop and it is becoming heavier for me to handle each time I do that. I do own one of the steam cleaners, but even that is a task in itself. It’s the canister type cleaner and seems to take forever for the water to get hot enough to turn into steam, plus it doesn’t really seem to do the job very well. It’s big and heavy, and takes a lot of the valuable storage room that I have in my cleaning closet.
I am a big fan of going green as far as cleaning products are concerned. Slowly, but surely, I am eliminating all the harsh chemicals that I use for cleaning. The Aqua Fusion Steam Mop is just the ticket for taking on the big task of cleaning my floors in an eco-friendly way.
Anvid Products sent me one of the Sienna Aqua Fusion Steam Mop and a Sienna Visio Window Steam Cleaner for the purpose of this review.
If you haven’t heard about Anvid Products yet, they are the makers of the environmentally friendly Sienna Steam appliances which clean and sanitize homes without the use of harmful chemicals that can put families in danger. The entire Sienna line of products utilize green technology and are chemical-free—using only steam to clean and sanitize the house. Cleaning without chemicals has its benefits—reducing risk for headaches, fatigue, allergies, respiratory illnesses, heart disease, and other serious long-term conditions. These products produce steam power that quickly heats water to 212°F—reaching this temperature is critical to completely sanitize most surfaces around the home and cleaning with steam has been proven to kill 99.9% of germs and bacteria.
The Aqua Fusion Steam Mop uses steam to clean most sealed floor surfaces including wood, vinyl and tile. The tank itself is refillable and holds 18.9 fluid ounces of water, which you can fill right from your tap. A tank full of water lasts approximately 20 minutes of mopping time.
The Aqua Fusion Steam Mop uses heavy duty microfiber pads, which are self-attaching and are removed easily for cleaning in your washer. The pads attach easily to the bottom of the Aqua Fusion Steam Mop head with Velcro.
Just look at how much dirt the Aqua Fusion Steam Mop picked up on what I thought was a clean tile floor.
The Aqua Fusion Steam Mop does an excellent job of thoroughly cleaning the floor. It is lightweight and handles easily. The feature I love most about the Aqua Fusion Steam Mop is that the head swivels so you can easily get to those hard to reach corners. You can also use this mop on your carpets with the attachment that is included. When you have completed your cleaning tasks, simply empty the tank and fold down the handle for easy storage.
Features of the Aqua Fusion Steam Mop:
- Deodorizes, sanitizes, and cleans bare floors with 1500 watts of superheated steam
- Built in filter to ensure long life for the steamer
- Uses only water to clean, no chemicals needed, environmentally safe
- Easy removable 18.9 fluid ounce water tank
- Steam on demand with no waiting time
- Durable microfiber cloth pads & carpet glider included
The Aqua Fusion Steam Mop weighs only 6.6 pounds, so it is easily maneuverable, and has a cord length of 16.4 feet. The mop comes complete with 2 Microfiber Cloth Pads and Carpet Glider and is available in a variety of colors.
The next item that I received was the Visio Window Steam Cleaner. Like the job of cleaning the floors, the second worse thing I hate to clean is the windows. And again, they aren’t cleaned near as often as I would like. The reason is because it is such a chore, as well. Usually, I will go around the house with a bottle of window cleaner and roll of paper towels to do the job, but even the window cleaner that I have been using doesn’t necessarily get the windows clean. To wash the outside of the windows, I have to get the step ladder out of the shed and move it from place to place. Again a hassle.
While I still hate to clean my floors and windows, using the Anvid Products Sienna Aqua Fusion Steam Mop and Visio Window Steam Cleaner has made these tasks a whole lot easier, and I feel much better about not using any harsh chemicals.
The Sienna Visio Window Steam Cleaner is for indoor domestic use only, but to put the Visio Window Steam Cleaner to the test, I selected the biggest cleaning project that I could think of, the outside of my patio door. With both a cat and dog going in and out of a pet door multiple times daily, as well as the wind and rain, the glass and framework on the door gets dirty quite easily. Of course, the weather was cooperative on this day.

After using the Visio Window Steam Cleaner.
I am a bit embarrassed that I waited so long to clean the door, but the weather has not been cooperating. Look at the threshold of the door. Yuk!
Look at the threshold now. Plus, there is very little water spilled on the ground. The main reason for that is that the threshold was exceptionally dirty, so I used the steamer on it for longer than necessary. I even used the steamer to clean the screen to the door, as well as the door frame, and it worked wonders.
The Visio Window Steam Cleaner is simple to use. The features of the Visio Window Steam Cleaner are:
- Lightweight and easy to use
- 1200 watts of professional steam power
- Locking steam control trigger
- 23’ cord for excellent range & mobility
- Steam ready in seconds
- 9.5 ounce Clear View water tank
- 10 piece accessory kit included
As I said, I used the Visio Window Steam Cleaner on the glass, screen door, threshold, and woodwork surrounding my patio door, but you can also use it on mirrors, window casings, sinks and much, much more.
I love that the cord is extra-long so it won’t inhibit your movements when cleaning the various surfaces. The accessories that are included with your kit include an 8 inch and 11 inch squeegees, steam nozzle, jet nozzle, angle concentrator nozzle, and four round brushes. You also get a funnel and measuring cup with your kit.
Sienna offers a full range of household appliances that refresh, sanitize, clean, and deodorize just about everything in the home and office. Both the Sienna Aqua Fusion Steam Mop and the Sienna Visio Window Steam Cleaner can be purchased at fine stores such as Sears, Macy’s, Bed, Bath & Beyond, Best Buy and Amazon.com, to name a few.
Never again will I clean my windows and floors the old fashioned way with harsh chemicals. I’m going green with the Sienna Aqua Fusion Steam Mop and the Sienna Visio Window Steam Cleaner from Anvid Products. Both these products make cleaning much easier and faster, and perhaps, I just might clean more often now. For the health of your family and loved ones, I recommend you go green as well and check into getting either or both of these products soon.
