Reasons to Use Steam Cleaning in the Workplace or Home
As a society, we are increasingly concerned about keeping our homes and workplaces clean and sanitized in order to prevent the spread of disease. Stringent cleaning & sanitizing standard practices that used to be common in food & beverage sector has now spread to our everyday lives due to covid-19 pandemic.
We have seen ourselves spending more on cleaning & sanitizing chemicals but did you know you don’t necessarily have to spend more on cleaning chemicals that may contain toxins?
Yes.. thanks to steam cleaning, you can create a spick-and-span work environment
Below, we list four key advantages of steam cleaning. Read on to learn how this method of cleaning can benefit you, your employees, and your company.
Perhaps the best advantage of steam cleaning is its versatility. This cleaning method uses high temperature steam to disinfect and polish surfaces and remove dirt and grime. Originally, people only used steam to clean wood flooring. However, new developments in cleaning methods and cleaning equipment improved steam cleaning as a whole. You can use this method to clean almost anything, including: bathrooms, cabinets, rugs, chairs, countertops, doorknobs, microwave & your water dispensers!
Essentially, you can use steam to clean nearly every surface in your work space. And since this technique only requires you to use water as a cleaning agent, you’ll save a lot of money on cleaning supplies alone. Because you can use steam to clean virtually anything, you reduce the amount of germs, bacteria, pollutants, and allergens in the workplace.
Steam Cleaning Equipment have a very high temperature output of steam. it actually helps the cleaner to provide sanitation on the surface it is working on. Bacteria is often unseen by the naked eye, but when the surface comes in with very high temperature steam, this helps the bacteria and germs to be killed, providing a completely sanitary result. With such high temperatures, the steam provides a much more effective clean than traditional cleaning methods. In fact, steam cleaning does the following:
Because the steam itself is what sanitises the surface, you won’t need to use any chemicals. This makes for a great option for those wishing to keep the food contact surfaces safe, as well as being more environmentally friendly. Allergies has become increasingly common, worldwide, sensitization rates to one or more common allergens among school children are currently approaching 40%-50%. And they are increasing. They affect 30% of adults and 30% of children. Indoor air pollutants are a major cause of allergy symptoms among those who suffer from allergies. Not only that, but these irritants can have terrible effects on one’s health. Unhealthy levels of contaminants can lead to a whole host of health troubles, including respiratory problems and asthma. Hot water extraction, more commonly known as steam cleaning, is the most effective way of removing pollutants and allergens and since it only uses water & no chemicals, this further eliminates risk of allergies.
Unlike many other sterilizing agents, steam is non-toxic. Since steam is a form of water vapor produced by boiling, and essentially has the same properties of water. As steam is a form of water vapor and there is no extra chemicals required, this eliminates the need for storage of hazardous chemicals.
4. Safe & Environmentally Friendly
Since steam cleaning only uses water to disinfect a surface, you won’t have to use any chemical cleaners (like bleach or ammonia) to create a spotless, germ-free environment. As you spend less money on other cleaning agents, you reduce the demand for toxic chemicals that harm our ecosystem.
Many chemicals leach into the soil and water, poisoning local plant and animal life. So the fewer chemicals you use to clean your workplace, the more you protect the environment.
Additionally, steam cleaners also use low levels of water, so there’s no high strain on water supplies. And since the cleaners use washable pads, brushes, and other fixtures to clean a surface, you reduce the number of disposable cleaning pads that end up in landfills.
