Bed Bug Supply Review - see what our experts have to say about this product
From the moment we unboxed the Brio, we were infatuated with its unique design. When stripped of attachments, the spray gun fits into a port on top of the body and doubles as a carrying handle. Brilliant. The concept makes for a noticeably more portable steamer – no more carrying the body with one hand and the gun in the other. The three-wheeled design does a great job at allowing the steamer to glide across smooth floors when you want it to, and stay put when you don’t.
The Brio weighs a mere 10.5 pounds on an empty stomach – when filled to the brim, it tips the scales at about 12 pounds. Instead of going with the usual boxy or cylindrical design, Reliable opted for a long but slim body, measuring 17″ long and only 7″ wide. This makes it very easy to stash the Brio away in a closet when you’re not steaming.
There’s a little something for every chore when you dig into the Brio’s included gadgets and gizmos. Extensions, nylon brushes, brass brushes, angled nozzles, fabric and window heads, and more are all shipped with the Brio. Everything appeared solidly made, and installing your attachments of choice is simple – just insert and twist to lock it in place.
Thanks to the solenoid steam activation, steam was contained near the boiler and sent on-demand to the gun. This avoids build-up in the hose between trigger pulls, ensuring consistently hot and dry steam. After I pulled the trigger, it only took about 2.5 seconds for steam to start pouring out. On high pressure settings, the Brio is a beast – this is more than enough power to ensure deep penetration into walls, floorboards, and upholstered furniture. When you’re aiming for contact kills on surfaces, turn the steam adjustment knob down to avoid blowing bed bugs all over the place.
It’s really an understatement to say we liked the EnviroMate Brio. It’s compact, lightweight, and packs a seriously deadly punch. This is a very polished, well-made machine, that we are happy to recommend to residential and commercial buyers alike.

Steamers are a great chemical free and very effective way to treat for pests such as bedbugs and dust mites. The pests and their eggs are killed instantly when subjected to the high heat produced by the steamer. When treating for bedbugs or dust mites on furniture such as sofas, chairs, and beds there are a few simple steps to follow to help be successful in eradicating the pests. Before you start always make sure to follow these few rules.
Never steam into electrical outlets or connections and when steaming along base boards, wood furniture and trim always follow with a dry towel to remove the condensation or water build up. When steaming a mattresses or bedding make sure to allow the mattress or bedding to completely air dry prior to installing any plastic covers or plastic encasements commonly used for bedbug prevention.
