Once upon a time there was a thing called a steam cleaner, and you could get 
steam-cleaned.  These days steam cleaners have been largely replaced by "steam" 

My ex-brother-in-law's landscaping business had a nice German steam cleaner.  It
had a big tank for diesel fuel, and produced lots of real steam.  
I think a heated pressure washer, even if it heats the water
almost to boiling,  is a poor substitute for a real steam cleaner, since the 
blast of
actual gaseous steam will have much more heating power than a 
a stream of even boiling water.
