Steam (vapour) cleaning is a simple yet extremely effective method of surface treatment.
The high temperature of the steam softens the greases, oils and fats etc that bind dirt into or onto surfaces, allowing the pressure to dislodge all the particles. The dirt can then be wiped or vacuumed away leaving surfaces sparkling and also sanitised, as the temperature of the blast is deadly to germs, bacteria and bugs. The same process is used to steam clean car engines, however, steam vapour is only 5% moisture allowing it to be suitable for internal cleaning.
Steam cleaning is a non abrasive method of cleaning so chores are simplified and far less taxing than the old fashioned scrubbing methods or elbow grease as it was known. The high pressure blast allows cleaning and sanitising of hard to reach areas yet, with the temperature of the steam dropping dramatically as it merges with the air, steam is quite safe to use.
So with the heat and pressure doing the cleaning and sanitising, in general cleaning you no longer have to waste money and risk your health and safety on costly and often toxic cleaning chemicals. With chemicals being linked to conditions such as ASTHMA, CANCER, CHRONIC FATIGUE SYNDROME etc, aside from the constant damage they do to our environment, more and more people are realising the benefits of reducing the toxic load we put on ourselves and our world.
