Steam Cleaning Service
Steam Cleaning Service
Steam cleaning is effective both in home and clinical situations. It eliminates 100% of bacteria and viruses, as well as a host of invasive pests such as ticks, lice and fleas.
In the home it destroys bed bug and dust mite eggs, larvae and adults.
In the clinic the 'shock' of steam at 130°c under 12 bars of pressure, will destroy all bacteria (live and dormant) and viruses including dormant and all variants.

WHY USE STEAM?
It will 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.
Helps in the fight against allergies & diseases
Allergens produced by house dust mites are among the most common triggers of asthma. There are at least 15 mite allergens.
Studies have shown that a significant portion of adult asthma is due to atopic sensitization to dust mites. It has been estimated that as many as 1.2 billion people could have some form of chronic sensitization to dust mites.
Typical symptoms of house dust mite allergies are itchiness, sneezing, inflamed or infected eczema, watering/reddening eyes, runny nose and clogging in the lungs.
The environment of bedding is optimal for most dust mites, and comparative studies have shown that the density of dust mites in mattresses to be on average greater than 2500 per gram of dust.
Cleaning beds with most vacuum cleaners will not remove dust mite allergens, but instead throw them into the air and increase their volatility.
Exposure to a high temperature shock will typically prove fatal to house dust mites. Cleaning with dry steam at lethal temperatures has been shown to be sufficient to kill all the dust mites in bedding.

It kills ticks
These small arachnids are living on the blood of mammals and birds. They are vectors of a number of grave diseases. They are often brought into the home by pets. There are often alarming stories of ticks infesting trains and other public transport. Vapor cleaning is the best weapon against these infestations. Vapor also penetrates into cracks and crevasses where ticks can hide.
It kills bedbugs
An old pest re-emerging with a vengeance. The presence of bedbugs throughout the world has taken the human population like a Tsunami. Pest management specialists have had to play catch up on how to successfully combat these persistent blood sucking insects. We have now learned that bed bug management cannot be accomplished using pesticides alone. A systematic approach is needed. Until recently, professionals were recommending throwing away affected box springs and mattresses. Fortunately, today we have discovered that dry steam when applied to the mattresses, couches and carpets will virtually eliminate all stages of the bedbugs including the hard to kill eggs. Vacuuming helps, but it will not remove all of the bedbug eggs that are stuck to the mattress and other surface. Even vigorous vacuuming will not remove all of the eggs.
It kills acarimites and acari
Mites cause several forms of allergic diseases, including hay fever, asthma and eczema and are known to aggravate atopic dermatitis. Mites are usually found in warm and humid locations, including beds. It is thought that inhalation of mites during sleep exposes the human body to some antigens that induce hypersensitivity reaction.
Dust mite allergens are thought to be among the heaviest dust allergens. Treatment of mite allergy starts with avoidance. Regular steam sanitizing of mattresses and blankets can help in this regard.
It kill fleas
This small wingless jumping insect feeds on the blood of mammals and birds. It sometimes transmits diseases through its bite. Combating a flea infestation in the home takes patience because for every flea found on an animal, there could be many more developing in the home.
The environment should be treated with a spray insecticide. Frequent vacuuming is very helpful, but the vacuum bag must be disposed of immediately afterwards. The combination of dry steam and vacuuming should eliminate fleas definitely from the environment.
WHAT IS STEAM EXACTLY?
Steam is water which has been changed into a gas.
Steam cannot be seen for it is colorless. The cloud of vapor that we see beginning about 2 centimeter from the spout of a tea-kettle is not steam. The real steam is in the space that seems vacant just outside the spout. The cloud we see is the water that the cooler air has changed from a gas form back into tiny water particles. Steam is formed by boiling or by evaporation. At sea level water boils when it is heated to 100° C. Water also evaporates at lower temperatures. The steam caused by boiling is as hot as the boiling water. The steam caused by evaporation is not hot. Usually, the word steam refers to hot steam. When water reaches the boiling point, bubbles of the steam begin to rise through it and escape into the air. The temperature will remain at the boiling point until all the liquid has become gas. It requires 100 calories of heat to raise one gram of water from the freezing point (0°C) to the boiling point. Steam fills more space than the water from which it comes, at the moment when boiling stops, the gas is 1,67 times as great in volume as the former liquid. At this stage it is called saturated steam, if heated more, it takes up even more space. Then it is known as super heated steam. The steam engine is built on this principle.
As part of our ongoing commitment to the environment and in order to provide the latest and very best equipment we use steam cleaners that are approved by the British Allergy Society. So you can be assured of the best results and latest hygiene standards.
