Steam Cleaning is a popular choice when it comes to removing dirt and stains from your carpets, flooring, furniture and upholstery. The beauty of steam cleaning is that it effectively trades heat for chemicals without sacrificing strength. In fact, when used correctly, steam can quickly kill 99.99% of germs and bacteria, making it a safe, healthy, eco-friendly, all-natural way to clean your home from top to bottom.
Since Steam Cleaners use only water to clean, sanitize and disinfect they are completely safe for the environment. When the dry steam vapour comes into contact with the surface being treated it not only thoroughly cleans the surface it also disinfects and sanitizes it. Furthermore, the dry steam vapour penetrates cracks and crevices common chemical-based cleaners cannot. This eliminates all germs, viruses, bacteria, allergens, mold and mildew on the treated surface.
How Does a Steam Cleaner Work?
The mechanics behind these all-out cleaning machines is fairly simple. A boiler heats water creating pressurized steam inside the tank. Reaching temperatures of 202 degrees Celsius, the steam shoots out of a hose on command, giving you full control over its cleaning power. Heat opens up surface pores or moisturizes fabrics, allowing for total sanitization and disinfection. Dirt will be blasted away effortlessly, then collected by microfibre cloth which can be attached to several different tools.
