Eliminate 99% of Germs with Steam Cleaners
In the current climate, due to the COVID-19 outbreak around the world, there is intense scrutiny on the way the virus is transmitted from person-to-person, and research has shown that droplet infection is the most common pathway for the disease.
In light of the current need for everyone to be as clean and hygienic as possible, Alpha Power Cleaners are going to detail why steam cleaners are the best way to keep your premises hygienic.
How effective are steam cleaners?
Cleaning giant Karcher has undertaken extensive testing of its steam cleaners at an independent laboratory. Rigorous tests concluded that with proper use, steam cleaners can remove up to 99.999% of enveloped viruses such as coronavirus and 99.99% of common household bacteria from hard surfaces.
These incredible numbers show just how important it is for your business to have a steam cleaner on site.
At Alpha Power, we are proud to stock a wide range of steam cleaners from the world’s leading brands including Karcher and Duplex; we’ve got the equipment you need to eliminate germs from your premises.
Like the Karcher SGV 8/5 (240v) Vacuum Steam Cleaner – “…ensure hygiene-critical environments like kitchens, bathrooms, restaurants, hospitals and care homes are kept hygienically clean with minimal operator effort.‘

An added benefit of steam cleaners is the fact that they do not leave allergenic residue once the cleaning process has been completed. This means that air quality is better in the room, and those with respiratory troubles are not irritated by floating particles and allergens.
The force at which the steam is propelled from the cleaner ensures that it gets into all cracks – something which cleaning cloths cannot do. This comprehensive cleaning process is why steam cleaners are one of the most effective methods for eliminating germs.
How to protect yourself and those around you from COVID-19
There is a lot of guidance and advice available at the moment regarding the best methods of protection against coronavirus, but it can be difficult to know which protocols are best to follow.
In reality, there are a few simple and effective ways to protect yourself and others:
- Wash your hands regularly and often with soap
- Try and avoid touching your face
- If you are ill, wear a breathing mask that covers your nose and face
- Use disposable tissues and put them in a bin with a lid
- Cough and sneeze into the crook of your arm and turn away from others
- If you live with someone who is ill, stay away from them as much as possible
- Stay at home if you feel ill
- Ventilate rooms well
Protection when outside the house
- Try and maintain a 2 metre distance from those you do not live with, unless absolutely vital
- Disinfect things you touch regularly, like steering wheels, door handles and mobile phones
- Avoid public transport where possible
- Try and avoid peak times in supermarkets and shops
