SF-407 is an efficient floor steamer that steams and cleans your clothes at the same time without using tetrachloroethylene, a dry cleaning chemical. Hot steam is a natural alternative to dry cleaning chemical because it kills bacteria, allergens, dust mites and other contaminants that can cause allergies. It has 1500 power which allows the device to heat up very fast, in just 45 seconds and produces steam for up to 45 minutes from 1 water tank. This gives you the opportunity to save a great amount of time. In addition, the high power makes the unit suitable for thick materials. It works very well on wool sweaters or pants, towels, duvet covers, shower curtains, and coats. However, it is not recommended to use it on delicate materials and synthetic fabrics, such as nylon and polyester.
Measuring 64.5 H x 11.8 L x 8.1W, this unit is a medium sized unit, suitable for any types of rooms. You can easily store it in the laundry room, without fearing that it may occupy a lot of space. The SF-407 features a telescopic pole that has a height of 51.18 inches. The telescopic handle is both adjustable and detachable which allows you to use it at various heights. According to some customer reports, the pole is too short for steaming longer clothing but sturdy enough to make the steaming process a bit easier. The SF-407 also comes with a press pad, rolling casters, fabric brush and a clothes hanger with a hook.
The SF-407 features a detachable tank which allows you to easily detach it in case it needs to be refilled. To refill it, remove the water tank and fill it with water directly from the faucet. You must also take into account that the tank will hold up to 40 oz. This quantity of water allows you to use it for 45 minutes of continuous steam. The rolling casters are a great addition because it makes it easier for you to steam larger items. The fabric brush features an additional attachment which helps you remove loose items that may end up on your clothes. We like that this unit also includes a handy press that resembles an iron, offering more precision when getting rid of wrinkles.
The product features a limited 1-year warranty. This device is made of durable materials that are rust resistant so it’s safe to say that the SF-407 will last for a long time. This 8.2 pounds device is lightweight and because of that, the heavy garments on the telescoping pole can make to unit topple over. Also, this unit doesn’t come with any brakes on the wheels, so it may slide easily. However, these minor disadvantages are nothing compared to all the advantages of using this product. All in all, for the price of almost $70 this is an amazing product that far exceeded our expectations.
