Steam Cleaners: The Ultimate Germ Killer

There are many cleaning products and methods which are touted as the best way to kill and remove germs from your home or workplace, and steam cleaners are one of them.

Steam Vapour Helps Kill Germs

Steam vapour is widely regarded as an incredibly effective way of killing germs. This is because the high temperatures reached make it difficult, or impossible, for bacteria to survive. Steam cleaners emit vapour that typically reaches around 250 degrees Fahrenheit, so as well as getting rid of the surface level of dirt and grime, the high temperatures mean that bacteria is eliminated instantly.

All Sizes Available

Steam cleaners are available in different varieties, from large ride-on and walk-behind cleaners to hybrid steam-cleaning mops, making them ideal for premises of varying sizes. They work by housing cleaning fluid in a tank, dispersing the cleaning fluid for the brush and sweeping mechanisms to work with. Newer models have a pre-sweep function which removes any excess dirt and debris, allowing the cleaning fluid to work in a more efficient way.

Steam Cleaning is Fast

Steam cleaning also works more quickly than other methods, as a study by the University of Washington proved. They provided the cleaning staff with the leading steam mops available for their cleaning duties and asked them to record the results of their usage.

The staff found that each bathroom was cleaned, on average, four minutes faster than it would have been using other cleaning methods, as the intensive scrubbing that is normally required was not necessary. The results of the study showed that only 1% of germs could be located after the professionals had finished their work.

No matter how strongly you scrub, and how many times you spray cleaning fluid on your surfaces, it can be very difficult to get rid of all the bacteria. However, by using a steam cleaner, you can be sure that you are giving yourself the best possible chance to remove these potentially harmful organisms from your premises.
