Hygiene & Steam Cleaning
Hygiene has become a hot topic as we are in the grip of concern about the spread of germs and viruses. Simple measures such as hand washing and regular cleaning of high touch surfaces can help stop the spread of germs and illnesses. But as some germs are able to survive on hard surfaces for several weeks, we can also look to sterilising our furnishings: such as mattresses, sofas, couches, armchairs, rugs, carpets, curtains & blinds. Steam cleaning can assist in giving our homes a really deep clean and keeping bacteria and viruses at bay in your home or office.
As sunlight has been linked to eradicating viruses and illnesses, similarly the heat generated from steam cleaning is also beneficial in providing a more sterile environment.
Our professional steam cleaning machines are able to heat water to temperatures of about 180 degrees Celsius. When steam of this temperature leaves through the steam cleaner, the molecules of vapour steam are also considerably smaller than water molecules, which means they are able to penetrate in a far more intensive way compared with water, detergents or chemicals, thereby resulting in a much deeper clean.
In addition, the steam is very hot at the release point, meaning the targeted area expands significantly, and dirt and grime is more easily removed.
There are also very important environmental benefits which support the steam cleaning process, in that following the application of steam, there is no detergent or chemical residue left behind, and very little waste.
Steam is a great ally when it comes to killing germs, and can help lift dirt and grime at the same time. It is also a natural disinfectant and is safe for your family and pets.
