Bed Bug Supply Review - see what our experts have to say about this product

We've been waiting a long time for a bed bug steamer like the Vaporetto to enter the market. For years, shoppers on a tight budget have been forced to compromise for a much smaller and weaker steam option if they can't afford the leading models. Worse yet, they may skip the steamer completely and risk compromising their bed bug treatment!

Thankfully, Polti has the answer with their new Vaporetto Smart 40 bed bug steamer. The Vaporetto combines much of the power and capacity of class-leading steamers like the MR-100 Primo with some of the compactness and budget-friendliness of smaller handheld steamers. Weighing in at just 11 pounds, the Vaporetto is able to deliver steam of over 200 degrees for up to 60 minutes between refills. Try doing that with a handheld steamer or a department store steam mop!

Product Information

The Polti Vaporetto Smart 40 is the perfect balance of power and ergonomics. Its uniquely compact body houses a heavy-duty stainless steel boiler with an integrated heating element capable of temperatures of over 200 degrees. This rapid heat delivery ensures that no bed bug or egg touched by its steam will survive.

Thanks to its advanced boiler and its 230-degree heat output, the Vaporetto Smart 40 can consistently deliver steam over 200 degrees from the tip. This can kill bed bugs of all ages instantly, including unhatched eggs. This powerful steam can even penetrate into soft materials to kill bed bugs hiding inches beyond the steam gun's tip.

The Vaporetto isn't just for killing bed bugs: it's designed to be a cost-effective and powerful home cleaning tool. With its included range of attachments, the Vaporetto is perfectly equipped to clean and sanitize throughout your home. This includes your sofa, tile grout, cooking surfaces, vehicle upholstery, and more.

How to Kill Bed Bugs with the Vaporetto Steamer:

Bed bugs are highly susceptible to heat -- exposure to 120 degrees will kill them in minutes, but 180-degree heat will kill them on contact. This includes adult bed bugs, juveniles, and eggs alike. This vulnerability makes steaming a highly effective part of a bed bug treatment process, as it allows you to quickly cut down the bed bug population no matter where they might be hiding.

The Vaporetto is extremely powerful, and will have no problem penetrating into various materials and deliver lethal heat to bed bugs hiding inside. Using its steam adjustment feature, you can tune the steam pressure for different materials 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.

Questions and Answers

Q: Does this do carpet also?
Asked by: SA - 11/26/2017
Yes, all of the steamers we offer are great for carpet.
Q: is there a place to store the attachments?
Asked by: pam - 5/18/2018
Yes, there is an accessory storage panel in the rear of the body.
Q: Is there a manual in English for the Polti Vaporetto? I'd like to read the manual before buying, but it is all in Italian.
Asked by: Captain81 - 8/17/2018
When we first started carrying the product, its manual was only available in Italian. You can now find a multilingual manual at https://www.bedbugsupply.com/assets/images/polti-vaporetto-manual.pdf
Q: Could this be also used on clothes? Does it come with an attachment for that?
Asked by: Emilio - 12/17/2018
Yes, this steamer comes with a fabric attachment that is suitable for steaming some clothes.
Q: Will this unit kills fleas?
Asked by: Mary hasty - 7/23/2019
Yes, a high-pressure steamer will kill fleas on contact.
Q: I just recently purchased this and am about to finally use it. When I start steaming a couch, for instance, won't the bed bugs run out of it (or the bottom of it)?? Is there anything you recommend to kill those running out seeking other places to hide? Thanks.
Asked by: readyforrelief - 12/21/2019
Bed bugs tend not to run away from steam before it kills them. If they do, they aren't moving faster than an ant so you should have no difficulty catching them with the steamer tip in time.
Q: If i purchase this steamer will it kill the bed bugs?How soon to see results?
Asked by: Pat - 5/14/2020
Given steam kills on contact, you may expect to see results right away. Steam is used as part of our 4-step solution and of course is not an end all treatment device.
Q: what is the warranty ?
Asked by: Judy - 5/27/2020
The warranty is 12 months from the date of purchase from Polti.

Steam Cleaner by Polti
I am very happy that I purchased this product and that I purchased it from this company. My son's bed and my favorite chair were infested with bedbugs. The steam cleaner that I chose to buy is affordable, lightweight and very easy to use. It saved the chair and the bed. The chair looks new! The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it comes with a little fabric cover to put over the larger brush, but it doesn't stay on-I have to use a rubber band. Not a huge deal-a minor annoyance. Btw-I did a great deal of research and this product is $10 cheaper here than anywhere else!

Peace of mind
I feel safe knowing we have this. We had a mild infestation of bed bugs but they are highly intelligent vampire insects that scuttle and wait. We went through all drawers and encased the beds and pillows and used sprays and the powder. But once we got this item we had peace of mind. Because we had a wet dry vac we felt comfortable steaming carpets because we had a way to suck moisture. The main thing is we didn’t want to feel there were a couple of these blood suckers hiding to come get us in 6 months as they survive eons without your blood. Crazy. I needed peace of mind and a Bed Bath and Beyond lady whispered there was this site and the sprays don’t work unless you can steam at at appropriate temperatures up the wazoo. We like knowing we can steam up the wazoo. No more creepy crawly feelings.

Wonderful tool, does a better job than I thought. It's a hot machine and that's exactly what I needed not to mention the versatile function. For the price you really can't beat this machine. Kills on contact, reaches hard to reach places and has a pretty good reach for a home with normal height ceilings. If it wasn't for our recent infestation I would never thought to use one of these but out problem is just about solved in under three weeks. Which would not have been accomplished without this purchase.

Packs a punch
This steamer surpassed our expectations. It's hot, portable and well priced. We have other smaller hand held steamer and they just don't perform like this one. I have bad knees so this allows me to stand up. We had bed bugs and used this with the kit and they are now gone. My wife now uses it to steam the floors, which she loves to do.
