What Steam Cleans
Steam, or the correct term, “dry vapor steam” is an intensely hot gas that is produced by heating normal tap water under pressure to a temperature of about 300 degrees and then releasing it as a hot dry vapor capable of cleaning and sanitizing virtually any surface. This technology was developed in Europe where it has proven itself for over 40 years in commercial and industrial applications. Because steam cleaning reaches into the pores of fabric and other hard surfaces, it will drive out dirt, grease, contaminants and chemical residue from those surfaces. It’s a natural and ecological method of deep cleaning, removing chemical residues and toxicity without the need for solvents and harsh chemicals. No other methods of cleaning are more efficient at killing mites, viruses and bacteria, which has made this technology highly sought after amongst the health care, food and hospitality industries, to name just a few. Because this system uses only water, you are not introducing anything into your environment that has chemicals or odors. Using intense steam, or hot dry vapor, this method of cleaning will actually remove chemical residuals left behind from previous cleaning that may still affect your health and the cleanliness of that surface
What does steam actually clean, kill and sanitize?
For starters steam will kill on contact dust mites, fleas, bed bugs, viruses, and bacteria. It will help alleviate allergies as well from the impurities in and on surfaces that cant be properly cleaned
First, let’s consider the problems caused by dust mites and other pests, which live in carpets, clothes, mattresses and upholstery, leading to allergies and other health problems. The recommended treatment for dust mites is to launder the items in hot water. However, laundry water is actually not that hot…at least compared to steam. As well, laundering may be difficult to do with carpets, couches, mattresses pillows.
And here, steam cleaning comes to the rescue, because it provides you with a way of penetrating all of these surfaces thoroughly, with temperatures in excess of 300 degrees. This intense heat kills the mites without getting the surfaces too wet, and the items treated are completely dry in a matter of minutes.
health care- hospital, nursing homes, medical offices
infection control and the fight against hospital “super bugs” are the biggest concerns within today’s medical and health care industries. Many bugs have now become immune to chemical detergents, and consequently, the rise of steam cleaning technology has been enthusiastically welcomed by hospitals, medical and dental offices, nursing homes, and even veterinary centers. Its been proven that our steam cleaners will kill a variety of germs, viruses, and bacteria. They cannot survive the intense heat and in a matter of seconds are destroyed by steam cleaning. This is the fastest, safest and most sanitary way to treat these facilities.
Hospitals and Health care facilities are the most exposed to the risk of infections due to the presence and the proliferation and spreading of pathogenic micro-organisms. These occurrences of a pathogenic nature are due to various factors such as being in the same room as diseased persons, flows of visitors, activities that facilitate the propagation of infectious agents, the selection of resistant and particularly virulent micro-organisms.
The majority of viruses and infections are transmitted by contact. It’s therefore hugely important for Health Care environments to be sanitized and disinfected. As a result, we have a wide range of steam cleaning machines which are capable of killing all of the harmful micro organisms that lead to illness, without the need for chemical detergents and disinfectants.
Potential Uses of steam cleaning
Disinfection of ambulances and equipment on board
Sanitizing of operating tables
Sterilizing of medical equipment
Dry steam cleaning of mattresses, pillows and bedding
Deep cleaning of floors and visitor waiting rooms
bathrooms and kitchens
overall hospital room cleaning
The frequent changes of hotel guests means that the rooms need to be cleaned quickly and on regular basis, so as to avoid any risk of contamination. Steam cleaners are ideal for bed bugs, cleaning mattresses, pillows, chairs and carpets, bathrooms and kitchen areas, vents, blinds, drapes and curtains, and so much more. Steam cleaning is the perfect solution for guaranteeing a clean and sanitized environment in super-fast time.
Restaurants and fast food establishments
Catering and food retailers face the continuous challenge of maintaining the highest cleaning standards at the lowest costs, and public and government pressure has brought the whole topic of food safety sharply into focus in recent years.
Naturally, we all expect clean and hygienic premises when eating out, and a steam cleaner can guarantee this for any business owner. It’s without doubt the most effective option, and provides the perfect cleaning solution for food appliances, as it doesn’t require chemical detergents.
Dry steam reduces system and line down times and save chemical costs with the guarantee of a total disinfecting and killing of microorganisms, because of the heating shock. Dry steam technology leaves surfaces dry and it is more effective in cleaning hard workplaces as by using traditional sanitizing.
