The world is currently facing a common challenge: how can we quickly sanitize an area and prevent the spread of the Corona virus (COVID-19)?
The traditional method – the use wipes and other over the counter cleaning agents – present the following issues when attempting to clean and sanitize:
Product Availability: Right now, it is nearly impossible to find disinfectant wipes or cleaning agents. Stores are running out of stock as soon as they open, and customers are being limited on the quantity of these items that they can purchase.
Limitations: There are simply too many types of surfaces to clean – carpet, walls, wood, metal, etc., not to mention hard to reach areas. For example, is virtually impossible to sanitize between every wire of a shopping cart using a disinfectant wipe.
Cost: Not only are chemicals and disinfectant wipes expensive , but they are also a major time burden when considering the time required to properly sanitize a surface.
Steam cleaning kills 99.9 percent of bacteria, germs and dust mites. This includes viruses such as COVID-19, bacteria (E. coli, Staphylococcus bacteria, Salmonella), other harmful micro-organisms, and surface molds.
