Is Steam Cleaning Really Effective?

Homes, offices, industrial kitchens, breweries, pharmaceutical plants, food processing facilities, and other businesses have begun to realize the benefits of chemical-free steam cleaning solutions. Using cleaning chemicals can create resistant strains of bacteria and other microorganisms and may also pose health risks to employees. With steam cleaning, businesses can clean without using chemicals. Steam cleaning is every bit as effective as chemical cleaning for eliminating dust, bacteria, mold, mildew, and more. Commercial steam cleaners kill 99.99% of germs and bacteria with nothing but heat and water.

How Do Steam Cleaners Work?

The machine boils water, which is then forced through the nozzle as pressurized steam. This heated vapor kills allergens and bacteria while loosening dust and dirt. With wet steam cleaning, the remaining condensation quickly dries, though in some cases it may be advisable to wipe down a heavily-soiled surface before it dries to remove any loosened grime more easily.

Dry steam offers a more versatile solution. There’s little moisture in dry steam—less than 0.5%. This means dry steam cleaners can be used in environments where cleaning with water isn’t safe or appropriate. Essentially, dry steam offers all of the benefits of a wet steam cleaner without the risk of damage to sensitive equipment.

What Can I Steam Clean?

Commercial steam cleaning is safe on many different surfaces, including tile, hardwood, grout, and carpet. It’s used in commercial and industrial facilities for sinks, floors, walls, tubs and tanks, stoves/ovens, grills, glass, and so much more. Dry steam cleaners can also be used around electronics and other sensitive equipment without the risk of damage. Dry steam cleaning also offers an ideal solution for equipment made from metals prone to corrosion, since the low moisture content won’t create corrosive conditions during cleaning.

Cleanliness is vital in hotel, restaurant, and commercial kitchens. Following proper sanitation guidelines greatly reduces the spread of illness and foodborne outbreaks (foodborne illness outbreaks. However, it can be difficult to understand exactly when and how to clean different areas of a commercial kitchen as this type of space will frequently contain a wide variety of equipment and surface materials.

Dry steam cleaners sanitize areas without the use of toxic (and harsh) chemicals, making them ideal for commercial kitchens that commonly have various equipment in tight spaces. At Electro-Steam, our commercial steam cleaners can reach temperatures of up to 240° F, well above the 160° F required to kill the majority of pathogens.

  • Dry steam cleaners are able to scrub (clean) and sanitize the surfaces of grills, flattops, and burners as needed.
  • Countertops and Hard Surfaces. Since these areas frequently come into contact with food, they should be steam cleaned multiple times a day to prevent rapid growth of bacteria.
  • Exhaust Hoods and Vents. These areas should be steam cleaned every few months to eliminate the buildup of grease that could eventually restrict airflow.
  • Kitchen Ceiling and Walls. These areas require steam cleaning at least once a month, although bi-weekly cleaning may be necessary depending on the amount of grease and food particle buildup.
  • Kitchen Floor. Kitchen floors should be cleaned daily as they are prone to the accumulation of food particles, grease, and tracked-in dirt.
  • Ovens and Ranges. These should be commercial steam cleaned weekly, with particular attention to the door, racks, and walls of the oven.
  • Refrigeration Units. Although they may be less exposed to airborne grease and food particles, refrigerator condenser coils and surfaces still require regular steam cleaning (and are often a source of mold and mildew).
