  2. 4 Reasons to Use Steam Cleaning in the Workplace or Home

    As the winter drags on, you may notice that your employees seem to be sick or they’re at least suffering from a chronic cold. Despite some rest and recuperation, your employees still aren’t as healthy as they’d like to be. You may even think you can’t do anything to improve their well-being.

    But did you know that you can do something to improve your employees’ overall health?

    Thanks to steam cleaning, you can create a spick-and-span work environment and aid your staff members’ immune systems.

    Below, we list four key advantages of steam cleaning. Read on to learn how this method of cleaning can benefit you, your employees, and your company.

    1. Versatile

    Perhaps the best advantage of steam cleaning is its versatility. This cleaning method uses high temperature steam to disinfect and polish surfaces and remove dirt and grime.

    Originally, people only used steam to clean flooring. However, new developments in cleaning methods and cleaning equipment improved steam cleaning as a whole. You can use this method to clean almost anything, including:

    • Bathrooms
    • Cabinets
    • Granite surfaces
    • Upholstery
    • Carpets
    • Light switches
    • Countertops
    • Tables and chairs
    • Stoves and ranges (and the burners)
    • Drawers
    • Rubbish bins
    • Fridges
    • Sealed, solid floors
    • Handrails
    • Microwaves
    • Doorknobs
    • Mirrors
    • Rugs
    • Tile floors
    • Windows and window screens

    Essentially, you can use steam to clean nearly every surface in your work space. And since this technique only requires you to use water as a cleaning agent, you’ll save a lot of money on cleaning supplies alone. In fact, imagine how much your company could save when you switch.
    Because you can use steam to clean virtually anything, you reduce the amount of germs, bacteria, pollutants, and allergens in the workplace.

    1. Environmentally Friendly

    Since steam cleaning only uses water to disinfect a surface, you won’t have to use any chemical cleaners (like bleach or ammonia) to create a spotless, germ-free environment. As you spend less money on other cleaning agents, you reduce the demand for toxic chemicals that harm our ecosystem.

    Many chemicals leach into the soil and water, poisoning local plant and animal life. So the fewer chemicals you use to clean your workplace, the more you protect the environment.

    Additionally, steam cleaners also use low levels of water, so there’s no high strain on water supplies. And since the cleaners use washable pads, brushes, and other fixtures to clean a surface, you reduce the number of disposable cleaning pads that end up in landfills.Again saving your company money

    1. Chemical-Free

    As mentioned above, steam cleaning eliminates your need for harsh chemicals to sanitize your workplace. And since you won’t use chemicals to clean your office or work site, you improve the overall look of the place as well.

    Most chemical cleaners leave behind streaks and smudges, making surfaces look grungy, dirty, and drab. Steam only leaves behind a sparkling shine, so use this cleaning technique to make your space look incredibly spotless.

    But more than creating the shiny look, this chemical-free clean also aids in good health. According to the American Lung Association, many chemical cleaners contain compounds that cause the following health issues:

    • Eye, skin, and throat irritation
    • Allergic reactions
    • Headaches
    • Asthma and other breathing problems (steam will also Kill dust mites, which benefits Asthma sufferers no end)

    Some chemical cleaners can even cause burns. When you switch from chemical cleaners to a steam alternative, you reduce your employees’ exposure to harmful chemicals. This reduced exposure also lessens their chances for developing a chemical-related illness.

    1. Effective

    Finally, steam cleaning stands as one of the most effective cleaning techniques available. Most cleaners produce steam at a temperature of 105deg. C or higher-some even produce steam with a temperature of 130deg.C

    With such high temperatures, the steam provides a much more effective clean than traditional cleaning methods. In fact, steam cleaning does the following:

    • Kills 99.99% of bacteria
    • Removes even the toughest of mould growth
    • Prevents mould growth from recurring
    • Clears away trapped pollutants
    • Eliminates dust mites
    • Removes stains, odours, grease, bacteria, mould, yeast & fungi

    In a recent study, the Environmental Protection Agency in the USA found that indoor spaces contain over 100 times more allergens and pollutants than outdoor spaces. Since most people spend roughly 90% of their time inside, deep, effective cleaning has become more valuable than ever.

    Dust mites and dust build up can become deeply embedded in carpets, rugs, and upholstery, and dirt, germs, and grime can build up on surfaces. The high heat of steam cleaning opens up surfaces and allows you to better clean these areas. As a result, you end up with a much cleaner space and fewer factors that could cause your employees to become or stay ill.
