The COVID-19 pandemic has led to higher hygiene standards in many institutions and facilities. Cleaning teams operate in hospitals , nursing homes and even supermarkets all around the world, where they sanitize trolleys after each usage.
While activities such as dining out and travel resume, enhanced cleaning will also be required in areas 
such as restaurants, airports, hotel rooms, and retail spaces to avoid the virus that causes COVID-19 from resurging.
For many people with allergies, asthma and chemical sensitivities, Steam Cleaners have become a favorite cleaning method. By contrasting steam cleaning with traditional cleaning methods (chemical cleaners) while keeping in mind the reason why you are cleaning, it becomes a little easier to understand why steam cleaning is the better , healthier, more cost-effective alternative.

 

Simply have a look at the shocking difference before and after we use steam cleaning for the carpet.

1) Quickly remove both dirt and dust-mites

The sun pours in, and the stream of light has little “stuff” floating. Many of those airborne particles are some of the home’s most potent allergy triggers — they are the source of dust mites. In the high causes of allergic reactions, dust mites are second only to pollen. Some allergic reactions develop into asthma (which is on the rise among children), 

but studies show that avoiding early childhood allergens may prevent asthma from beginning. By removing these allergens from your mattresses, pillows and upholstered furniture, the use of steam cleaner is perfect way to keep everyone safe in your house.

2) Chemical-Free Cleaning

Since water and heat are the only elements needed to wash, disinfect and sanitize your house, it has never been simpler and more environmentally friendly. If you are not going to use chemicals to disinfect your office or work site, you ‘re going to enhance the overall appearance of the place. Most chemical cleaners leave the stains and smudges behind, making surfaces appear grungy, dusty and drab. Steam leaves only shiny shine behind, so use this cleaning  technique to make your room look completely spotless. Some chemical cleaning solutions can also cause burns By converting from chemical cleaners to steam alternative, you are reducing the exposure of your workers to hazardous chemicals. This decreased exposure often reduces their risk of chemical-related disease arising.

3) Dries even faster

Some of you may think; where there’s steam, there’s moisture and where there’s moisture, mold damage occurs. 
While in principle this is right, steam cleaning is incorrect. Steam cleaners generate very hot steam with less than 5%  water content. This ensures that everything that you clean can dry very easily, which is perfect for mattresses, sheets, carpets and even clothes.

4) Prevent mold stains

Major mold removal can cost a lot of money but if mold is caught early enough, you can stop its growth in its tracks. We have also understand that steam cleaning dries faster than any other traditional cleaning. Steam cleaners can actually kill mold. The high temperatures kill mold while the bristles of brush attachments can help remove it from cracks and hard to reach places. And because steam actually penetrates the pores of the surface you are cleaning, it cleans deep to kill and remove mold, instead of just bleaching it invisible.
