The Steam Clean Systems mopping system utilises Micro fibre and super heated steam to give a mopping system that not only leaves a clean surface but sanitises it as well. The mop heads put down raw steam straight onto the surface through jets in the middle of the microfibre pads so the mop can be used in any direction and the micro fibre mops up the busted dirt.
The system consists of two mop heads one smaller triangular head for use on areas such as doors, walls in fact any flat surface. The other is a larger floor mop which is big enough for large floor areas. Both heads utilise heavy duty velcro to stick the mop pads to the heads. All our mop heads have loops to remove the dirty mop pads without the need to touch the contaminated area.
The mopping system can be used with any of our steam cleaners. With the SC2000 one needs a complete mop kit. With the steam only machines one needs just the mop heads and the pads and with the SC3000 just extension tubes, adapter, mop heads and pads are required.
A few Words about floor cleaning in a healthcare environment
For many years, hospitals considered floors "non-critical" areas when it comes to cleaning and disinfecting. This means floors were considered an unlikely source for the spread of infection in a hospital setting.
However, a 2017 study published in the American Journal of Infection Control, has determined that floors do harbour dangerous germs and should be reclassified as 'critical'areas requiring more thorough cleaning and disinfecting.
To come to their conclusion, the researchers swabbed floors in rooms with and without patients who have a C. diff infection. In the process, they found that some floors were also contaminated with MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) and VRE (Vancomycin-resistant enterococci) both of which have become resistant to most types of antibiotics.
Some 41% of the rooms had one or more objects touching the floors such as medical devices, bed linens and towels; as these items are touched by patients or healthcare workers, it is possible germs from the floor will be transferred to their hands.
It appears this last point is key to how pathogens on the floor can cause infection. The researchers found that after healthcare workers handled an object in contact with the floor, MRSA was found on 18% of the workers' hands; VRE 6%, and C. diff at 3%.
