Bed Bug Supply Review - see what our experts have to say about this product
Dry vapor steamers have become an essential part of modern bed bug treatment solutions. The ability to deliver lethal steam and cut down on the size of an infestation is invaluable in ensuring success. But up until recently, consumers had to either pay top-dollar for commercial steamers with the right features or compromise on much weaker consumer-grade alternatives. The new Polti Vaporetto Smart 100 changes all of that.
Never before has a consumer-oriented steamer delivered such a complete feature package in such an affordable, compact design. Despite its small footprint, the Vaporetto Smart 100 offers features usually reserved for higher-end steamers, like steam adjustment, onboard accessory storage, and continuous fill technology. Not only does this make the Smart 100 one of the best values available today, but it provides a compelling home treatment solution no matter the price.
The continuous fill technology is especially noteworthy, especially in a steamer this compact. Instead of filling the water reservoir once, bringing the machine to boil, and steaming until the tank runs dry, you can now continue topping off the tank as you work. This skips the downtime of waiting for the internal pressure to drop before refilling and reheating the tank.
Just as with the other steamers in the Vaporetto family, Polti has outfitted the Vaporetto Smart 100 with every attachment and accessory needed to clean and sanitize your home long after you've finished getting rid of bed bugs. Use the small fabric tool to treat mattresses, sofas, and upholstered furniture. Then, switch to the jet tip tool to reach into cracks and crevices, or the nylon brushes to treat grout, joints, and hard surfaces.
The Polti Vaporetto Smart 100 is a complete package for high-powered sanitization and home cleaning. Its compact design is packed with features, from continuous fill design and steam adjustment to an onboard accessory storage solution. Plus, the Italian-designed heating element ensures rapid delivery of scorching heat to kill bed bugs of all life stages on contact.
The Vaporetto is capable of delivering up to 220-degree steam from the tip at a pressure of up to 58 PSI (4 Bar). This high pressure provides penetration into soft materials like mattresses, sofas, and upholstered furniture. With the onboard steam adjustment control, you can turn down the pressure to focus the heat near the nozzle for focused surface treatments.
The Vaporetto isn't just for use in bed bug treatments: the entire family of Polti steamers are designed to be successful home sanitization and cleaning tools. With the included variety of cleaning attachments, the Smart 100 is well equipped to treat various surfaces throughout your home, killing germs and bacteria on your furniture, bathroom tiles, kitchen counters and cooktops, and more.
A scorching hot tip temperature delivers lethal heat to bed bugs, dust mites, and allergens even when hiding inches from the steam nozzle.
The removable water tank can be filled whenever you need, without having to wait for the boiler to cool down.

How to Kill Bed Bugs with the Vaporetto Steamer:
Despite their resistance to many common pesticides, bed bugs are highly vulnerable to heat, regardless of their life stage — adults, juveniles, and eggs alike will die when exposed to sufficient temperatures. While exposure to at least 120-degree heat will kill bed bugs within minutes, 180-degree steam will kill them instantly. This susceptibility makes high-pressure steam treatments a highly effective part of a bed bug solution, as steaming can quickly cut down the size of the infestation wherever the bugs and eggs are hiding.
While many upholstery steamers and other common cleaners lack the temperature and pressure needed to consistently deliver lethal heat, the Vaporetto Smart 100 is powerful enough to penetrate into soft materials and kill hiding bed bugs with ease. Using the steam adjustment dial located on the steamer's body, you can tune to the ideal pressure for different surfaces and treatment areas.
For mattresses, sofas, and other upholstered fabrics, use the bed bug tool, a cotton cover, and low pressure. This maximizes heat concentration and eliminates excess moisture and pressure. For cracks and crevices like baseboards, floorboards, windowsills, and more, switch to the jet tip tool. Use high pressure for door frames and windowsills, and medium pressure for mouldings and the edges of the carpet. Remember to move the steam nozzle slowly - no more than about one inch per second - to ensure that the heat is distributed consistently.
Use the jet tip tool and medium pressure to treat baseboards, floorboards, and the edges of carpeted floors.
Wrap the bed bug tool with a cotton cover to break up excess pressure and moisture to focus the heat on bed bugs hiding in upholstered furniture.
Turn the pressure up to penetrate into cracks and crevices along furniture edges, windowsills and door frames with the jet tip tool.
