How are you cleaning your home?

When it comes to daily household cleaning, many think steam is not a viable solution. Assuming it is too mechanical, too complex and excessive. In reality, steam is a quick and effective solution to sanitise almost every surfaces around your home. Many do not realise the actual cleaning times of traditional cleaning methods, not to mention the affect these methods have on both the environment and your overall health.

Many traditional cleaning actions are by no means a quick fix and what is often overlooked, is the affect that prolonged chemical exposure has in relation to your family’s health. Constantly inhaling chemicals is certainly not the healthiest thing! Many household cleaning supplies and products can cause irritation to the skin, eyes, and have allergy like affects on respiratory tracts and lungs. Prolonged exposure can cause other health problems including respiratory illness and even cancer[1].  According to the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine, ‘women cleaning at home or working as occupational cleaners have a significant risk of decline in lung function’[2].

“The use of cleaning products in spray form facilitates inhalation, and sprays may contribute to the burden of asthma in adults who do the cleaning in their homes.” [3]

Types of toxic cleaning supplies in your home:

  • Aerosol sprays
  • Air fresheners & fragrance
  • Chlorine bleach
  • Detergent and dishwashing liquid
  • Dry cleaning chemicals
  • Rug and upholstery cleaners
  • Furniture and floor polish
  • Oven cleaners

How can I clean without chemicals?

Dry Steam is simply vapour from water. Unlike chemical products, steam does not release surfactants or substances that are harmful to the body.

Dry steam provides economical, environmental and efficiency benefits. This is evident in both in terms of energy consumption (and time!) and impact on the environment through water and chemical usage and waste.

“Chemical disinfectants are widely used, but pose significant risks to humans, surfaces and the environment, and all must be properly applied in strict accordance with label instructions in order to be effective.”[4]
