Benefits of the PRO290 Professional Garment Steamer


Propress started making professional steamers in 1980, it is the definitive steaming brand from the steam experts, a firm favourite of leading international fashion brands and London Fashion Week. Propress delivers quality, performance and customer service.

Not simply steam

A Propress PRO290 Professional Garment Steamer doesn’t just produce steam, it produces a consistent flow of dense hot crease-busting steam. Whether you are steaming curtains 3.5m high, or the hem of a dress, you can be sure the steam keeps flowing and is directed to wherever it's needed.

Built to last

Propress has been ticking the boxes for sustainability since inception, using high quality materials throughout, ensuring longevity and serviceability and giving a great return on investment as well as outstanding results. From delicate wedding dresses to vintage jeans, a Propress steamer is simply the best steamer money can buy.

Easy maintenance

Keeping your steamer in top working order is simple with a Propress fabric steamer, even in hard water areas. The design of the PRO series commercial garment steamer, with its stainless steel tank, means that scaling issues are kept to a minimum, and periodically flushing out and descaling ensures optimum performance.

Steam on the hanger

Designed to save valuable time and space, steaming clothes on the hanger or on the rail with a Propress Steamer is quick and effective. There's no need for cumbersome ironing boards, instead garments can be hung on the integral pole set for easy steaming.

Hygenic steam

Delivering steam at temperatures of 100 degrees C, Propress is an effective part of your cleaning protcol; killing bacteria and mould which can cause odours. Propress garment steamers are also an ideal tool for moth control; killing moth larvae which can cause irreparable damage to your favourite garments.

Lightweight and manoeuvrable

Despite the high levels of power and stability, the Propress professional garment steamer is remarkably light at aproximately 8.5Kgs. And with double wheel castors it's ideal for use at home, shop or film set.

Frequently Asked Questions

It comes with an aluminium nozzle/ iron plate – why is this?

To achieve the perfect finish you need a bit more than just steam! Steam relaxes and plumps up the fibres of your fabric giving them new life and making creases simply fall out, and the iron plate smooths the fabric like an iron.

What fabrics can I use the Propress PRO on?

Because the contact temperature is much lower than a steam iron, a PRO series steamer is safe to use on nearly all fabrics.

How does a steamer compare to an iron?

No ironing board required! Steamers are faster, more convenient and much kinder to fabrics than conventional steam irons. Because you steam clothes and curtains in their hanging form, its much easier to see what you are doing and to get to the intricate and difficult to reach parts of a garment.

Steamers work by relaxing the fibres to remove creases. Ironing uses higher temperatures and weight/force to compress fibres. The heat and compression of fibres over time causes irreversible damage and wear, shortening the life of the garment.

Steamers can be used on a range of fabrics, and steaming can be done ‘in-situ’. Curtains can be steamed on the rail, clothes on hangers, cushions and seat covers directly on the sofa, and linen on the bed; saving time and effort.

Steaming is also better for the environment. Clothes last longer, less dry cleaner visits are needed for particular clothes (and therefore less use of chemicals), and less washes (meaning less wastage of water, use of detergents and energy).

What water do I use?

Normal tap water.

Can a steamer burn clothes?

Steamers are generally much safer to use on fabrics than irons, primarily because they operate at lower temperatures. The contact temperature of an iron producing steam is >180°C. The PRO however has a contact temperature of just 98°C, making it suitable for a much wider range of fabrics which cannot be ironed.

Do I need to descale the steamer tank every so often?

Yes. We recommend cleaning your steamer out with fresh water regularly (depending on use), and descaling using Propress Descaler periodically depending water hardness and amount of use. No additives in any form should be used, the use of additives (except Propress Descaler) will damage your steamer and void the warranty. Hard water causes scale to form on the heating element if not maintained properly; this will cause reduced performance, irreparable damage to the element and void your warranty.

How long does it take to steam an item of clothing?

This will depend on the garment, but we estimate a steaming time of less than a minute for shirts, tops and jackets and a bit longer for trousers and dresses.

How many garments can I steam between refills?

The PRO lasts for one hour which should allow for approximately 25 garments to be steamed, depending on style and complexity. Items such as wedding dresses will take considerably longer to steam than shirts.

Is delivery free?

Delivery is free of charge if you select the Standard Shipping option during Checkout.

If you select Express Shipping, delivery is then charged at $20 (for the entire order, not per product).

Customer service at Propress is excellent. If you come to them with an issue they deal with it promptly and their aftercare is second to none

We always receive an efficient and personable service from the Propress team, they are more than happy to go the extra mile in order to meet our requirements.

I don’t think I've ever had such Great customer service! 5* Thank you for all your help, and as I said, if you ever need a hat!

Thank you so much for your help and prompt service last week with our steamer. We will be recommending Propress for customer care, fantastic advice and service, well done.

Thank you for your truly excellent service and kindness. Everything went according to plan and I received the steamer today at 8.30. Bravo to the delivery Company you used.

It is such a rarity to actually be able to get through on the telephone to a living person given the times in which we live. Please keep doing the same thing.

Worked for a design company many years ago. The Propress is as good now as it was then - top marks.

An amazing piece of kit. How did we ever live without one of these? The 2 litre tank means you can steam a lot of garments before having to wait to refill the tank.

My wife recently purchased a much cheaper one for her shop, but we opted for this one for home use and she (having used both) says the difference is dramatic.

The staff at Propress have always been an absolute dream to work with. All of our orders are efficiently processed and our needs are always met, no matter how late in the day.

Ted Baker

Simply the best! This is the third steamer I've owned and beats the others hands down. Everything about this steamer has the look and feel of quality, making it a joy to use.

What an excellent team Propress are, and I would never look to use anyone else! Thanks for your endless hard word guys - we love you here at Ted!
