Why Dry Steam Cleaning?
Easy & Efficient
Are there any PPE requirements?
If cleaning is being performed in an area suspected of being contaminated with the virus the appropriate PPE should always be worn. Introducing a steam cleaner does not require additional PPE.
Can steam vapour aerolize pathogens?
No, the research does not support this. Our machines reach >170°C. Both Monash Health and the NHS in England have tested dry steam to see if it can spread anything. They tested this by sampling the air, vapour and additionally placed settle plates around the room and found that the steam did NOT spread anything.
Can our dry steam units kill COVID-19?
Professor Bloomfield from UNLV says “to actively kill the virus you need temperatures of around 60 degrees [Celsius]”. Our machines are heated to >176°C drastically reducing the contact time required.
Steam is also the recommended process for sanitising a viral agent of any soft furnishings or carpet by the Australian Government and specifically against COVID-19 by the United Kingdom Government.
Can I use any microfibre?
No. You should always use a microfibre cloth proven to remove at least 99.9% of micro-organisms. Most microfibre commercially available do not meet these standards.
Disposable microfibre is always recommended in the case of an infectious organism.
Steam Australia can supply suitable microfibre which has been proven within hospitals for use with our machines.
Who recommends steam cleaning?
The Australian Governments guidelines provided by the CDNA recommend steam cleaning soft surfaces and carpets in the event of viral agents. This recommendation is inline with governments around the world.
The UK government recommends steam specifically against Covid-19.
How often should I clean?
Surfaces and frequently touched points should be steam sanitised every 24hours.
Should I use vacuum or just steam?
It is recommended that in most cases just steam or steam and microfibre is used. Special consideration can be given to use a vacuum in certain circumstances – in this case you should ONLY use vacuums with HEPA filtration.
Can steam be used on other surfaces?
Yes, our machines can be used on nearly any surface. Our dry steam cleaners and recommended microfibre cloths are being used as the sole cleaning method in hospitals within Australia and New Zealand. Combining these two cleaning technologies has seen a statistically significant improvement on achieving a reduction in hospital acquired infections and improved cleaning efficacy. These results are consistently inline with expectations regardless of the size or purpose of the facility, hospitals also consistently report a significant reduction in costs, cleaning times, staff fatigue and WHS claims as well as a significant improvement in visual and microbiological cleaning results.
“It’s a fantastic machine, I’ve been using the steam to get into all those hard to reach areas, door jams, air vents, around the console, cupholders between the seats, and also the exterior of the car. It’s actually saved me a lot of time, I don’t actually have to stop what I’m doing because its one just one piece of equipment—I can do inside and outside of the car! I am saving between $150-200 a month. The 3 or 4 chemicals that I would normally use on the interior of a car, I no longer have to use. Results have been fantastic with a cleaner and fresher look! Using the upholstery tool for seats and car mats, the big difference is that customers can drive off within a few minutes. Using steam is really quite affective when saving you a lot of time, I highly recommend using steam for all your car cleaning and detailing needs”
