Kill germs & bacteria
With prolonged periodic use, over time, bacteria and viruses become resistant to treatment by chemical products. This can have grave repercussions in environments where hygiene is an absolute imperative, as in the food and medical industries. Over time, it is necessary to increase the amount of detergents and disinfectants used to maintain the required hygienic results.
This increases the risk of chemical contamination of food products. In addition, as many people are allergic to detergents, their usage can have serious effects in hospital environments. Pathogenic agents are not resistant to the thermal shock of vapor cleaning. Research has demonstrated that saturated steam treatment eliminates 99% of bacterial fungi and mold on virtually any surface. Unlike other cleaning methods, vapor is able to enter into all surface cracks and crevasses. Even with frequent vapor cleaning, pathogenic agents are unable to build up immunity to the thermal shock.
The absence of water, the instantaneous drying of the cleaned surfaces and the reduced use of detergents are all factors which help maintain the optimum sanitary conditions.
