Steam Cleaning: A Beginner’s Guide
If you’ve never used a steam cleaner before, you may have some questions about how they work and whether or not you need one. If you’re looking for a commercial or residential cleaning solution, a quality steam cleaner is definitely the way to go. Here’s why…
One of the main advantages of steam cleaning is that it doesn’t require harsh chemicals to get the job done. Steam cleaners sanitize and disinfect surfaces using ONLY tap water. They’re an all-natural alternative for deep cleaning any surface. Incredible? We know. True? Absolutely. The boiler inside the steam cleaner superheats regular tap water to 192°C / 378°F, making it a powerful disinfectant. With a combination of heat and high pressure, steam shoots out of the machine’s hose on-command, giving you full control of which areas to target. The heat from the steam opens surface pores or moisturizes fabrics, allowing for total sanitization and disinfection. You can eliminate dirt, grease, residue, mold, bacteria, viruses and germs without using cleaning products that may leave behind heavy films and airborne particles that can be harmful to your health.
A Powerful Clean
Gone are the days of endless scrubbing to remove dirt and grime. Steam cleaners have the power to lift heavy stains, dislodge encrusted dirt and melt away grease that lingers in hard-to-reach areas. Dirt is effortlessly blasted away, then collected by a microfiber cloth which can be attached to the hose. Dupray commercial-grade steam cleaners feature variable pressure controls, adding to their versatility. You can select a low pressure setting when exterminating bed bugs to ensure you don’t simply push the bugs deeper into the mattress. High pressure settings can be used for heavy duty jobs like grout line cleaning or degreasing. Dupray steam cleaners have the power needed for a deep clean, but can also be used for more delicate cleaning tasks.
Water and Steam
A common misconception about steam cleaners is that they create additional moisture, which can damage surfaces and even create mold. Dupray steam cleaners produce a very hot steam that contains less than 5% water, making them safe to use on all surfaces, even hardwood floors. Steam cleaners are the perfect solution for cleaning upholstery, mattresses, carpets and even clothing. If you do need a little extra moisture to get the job done, some Dupray units feature detergent and hot water injection. You can add the biodegradable cleaning product of your choice and, at the touch of a button, use some of the product and/or a heated water spray to target a specific area. This function is very useful for auto detailing or commercial kitchen cleaning.
Safe for All
Steam cleaning is a very safe way to clean residential and commercial spaces. Avoiding harsh cleaning products ensures the safety of children, pets and anyone with sensitivities to the harmful ingredients many cleaning products contain. Steam also eliminates airborne allergens, mold, mildew and dust mites. It’s an excellent way to maintain optimal cleanliness in homes, healthcare facilities, food processing plants, hotels, gyms and other settings.
