Dry Steam Vapour
The Cleaning Challenge
Traditional methods of cleaning can be a time consuming process. Cleaning chemicals are not always sufficiently removed from surfaces. Mops, cloths and buckets can harbour dirt and germs from a previous use which are then further spread on the next cleaning task or pushed into corners, edges and on or around the legs and feet of equipment. The operator can never be sure that the equipment is completely sanitised and clean before undertaking the next cleaning task and if chemical is left on surfaces it can dry hard and actually trap the dirt. If surfaces are not cleaned properly, it can lead to a build-up in the grout on floors and walls and within the surface of safety floors as they are not 100% smooth and flat. Over time this build up will make surfaces slippery and slow to dry.
The Solution: Dry Steam Vapour!
What is Dry Steam Vapour?
Initially the term “dry steam” may sound like a contradiction as steam is a by-product of water and therefore cannot possibly be dry. This is true of conventional steam, such as that released from a kettle which contains water droplets and is therefore moist. Dry steam however, is different. By applying further heat to conventional steam and increasing the temperature in excess of 140°C, the remaining water is vapourised thus making the steam “dry”. It is therefore true to say that the hotter the steam, the safer & more effcient the technology becomes!
How does Dry Steam Vapour work?
Dry steam is different to the more traditional methods of cleaning. In its gaseous state, dry steam vapour penetrates surfaces on contact without causing any damage to the surface being cleaned. It achieves excellent wetting-out and reaches into all cracks and crevices and the areas hard to reach by more traditional cleaning methods. The heat saponifies the dirt, grease and grime making them ready for removal which is generally achieved via micro fibre and/or the use of an inbuilt vacuum system.
