Sustainability of Steam Cleaning
As more companies look for sustainable solutions within their business operations, they turn to dry steam cleaning. It’s a simple way to reduce carbon footprint while fulfilling an essential need for cleanliness and sanitation.
Not only does dry steam help you conserve water, reduce wastewater, and eliminate wet floors that can lead to accidents, it also greatly reduces the need for harsh cleaning chemicals. Disinfectants and caustic chemicals can damage skin and the respiratory system and are oftentimes not mixed properly. As an alternative, dry steam cleaning is safe, sustainable, efficient, and cost-effective.
A More Sustainable Way to Clean and Sanitize
Dry steam cleaners use high-temperature dry steam to clean, disinfect, and sanitize surfaces to an acceptable level. Viruses and bacteria can be deactivated by temperatures as low as 70° F, and the temperature of dry steam goes above 225° F. Since this method only uses water, it is completely safe for the environment. It works its way into cracks and otherwise hard-to-reach places to control mold and other microorganisms, dissolve fats and oils, and remove dirt. Because the steam evaporates quickly, the surface is left clean and dry.
Heat is an incredibly effective way to sanitize, which makes dry steam cleaning a go-to solution in locker rooms and showers, medical and pharmaceutical facilities, bakeries, restaurants, wineries, breweries, garment care facilities, and many other commercial and industrial spaces.
Advantages of Dry Steam Cleaning
Companies in a wide range of industries have discovered the many advantages of dry steam cleaning. It saves time and labor costs while eliminating the need to buy expensive cleaning chemicals. Sanitizing with dry steam allows for a healthier, more positive work environment by reducing employee exposure to chemicals, eliminating unpleasant odors, and improving overall air quality.
For companies striving to create a greener profile, dry steam cleaning is a sustainable practice that serves to protect the planet in many ways:
- Reduced use of chemicals, thereby reducing chemical pollution and packaging waste
- Reduced carbon footprint
- No groundwater contamination
- Reduced water consumption and waste
- Improved air quality within your facility
Because you don’t have to wait for surfaces to dry, you can reduce downtime and maintain your productivity within a healthy, sanitized facility. You can manage bacteria and other contaminants before they pollute your production run while keeping the entire space safe and dry.
Sustainable Conveyor Belt Cleaning for Food Processing
Conveyor belts in food processing facilities have always proven to be a challenge when it comes to sanitation. To maintain a dry, safe environment, conveyor belts often have to be removed, taken to a designated cleaning area, and thoroughly washed and dried. For in-place cleaning, workers have to carefully brush, scrape, and vacuum, which takes a lot of time, water, and chemical cleaners.
Dry steam cleaning is quick and efficient, reducing labor costs and downtime. Compared to wet cleaning, dry steam cleaning reduces water consumption and wastewater by up to 95%. High-temperature steam also reduces the need for expensive sanitizing chemicals, which decreases packaging waste, shipping costs, and related carbon emissions.
