5 stars Polti Vaporetto Written by

Good value for money. Has worked very well so far. Steam cleaning shifts dirt and grime that ordinary cleaning might not. The Polti Vaporetto is small, compact and easy to carry around the house.

Would a 90 yr old with arthritic hands be able to use this safely, especially when removing any tops

The Polti Pocket  is small, compact and easy to carry around the house.  It comes complete with a convenient shoulder belt.  It weighs approximately 3.9kg.

Dimensions are approximately: (W) 23 x (D) 15 x (H) 21 cm

It would depend on how severe the arthritus is as the steam is produced by pulling the trigger on the steam gun.

It also has a safety valve  which prevents the appliance from opening accidentally until minimum pressure is reached inside the boiler. This would need to be unscrewed when refilling the boiler.


Can you use the Polti pocket steam cleaner on the carpet. If yes, which attachment should be used. thanks

I can confirm you can use the Polti Pocket Steam cleaner on the carpet. You should use two attachments. Firstly the steam gun attachment can be used to break down any stains and secondly the large brush attachment should be used to finish steam cleaning. Always do a patch test on an area of carpet first beforehand.

If I use that product on a matress would it not make it wet and hence prone to more dust mites?

The steam produced by the Vaporetto’s boiler is dry steam under high pressure. In contact with surfaces it does not condense, but dries immediately, leaving surfaces clean and dry.

When using on delicate surfaces Polti recommend:

If the Vaporetto has steam control, set pressure to the minimum.

If it does not have steam control stay far away from the surface (so that pressure decreases) or use the cloth, folding it over if necessary.

On particularly delicate surfaces, avoid direct contact with steam. Spray the cloth and then wipe.

can i use it on my mattrres which tool do i use and also on a dralon three seater settee

It is recommended that you carry out a patch test  on your mattress before use.  The small brush and terry towelling sock accessories are the ideal tools to use on your mattress and it is recommended that you use the Pocket Steam Cleaner on its lowest setting.  It is recommended that you carry out a patch test on your settee before using the Pocket Steam Cleaner.

Can you tell me if this is safe to be used on laminate flooring?


Laminate flooring should be ok provided the floor has been sealed tightly. We would however advise that you are careful not to over heat the surface. Polti also recommend that you put a clean, dry cloth under the brush when cleaning floors.

I hope this information has been helpful. Should i be of any furhter assistance please do not hesitate to contact me.
