Why Steam Cleaning?
Steam cleaning is a deep cleaning process, which takes the advantage of heat and pressure, as well as the combining characteristics of gas and liquid state. By effective working temperature of around 100C (Max temperature will reach 150C to 200C) steam can expand and soften the dirt, kill bacteria/germs and get rid of unpleasant smell. Using no chemicals and achieving a level of health, cleanliness that unsurpassed with any other materials. Steam is characterized into 3 categories, wet, dry and super dry steam. Wet steam is a mixture of steam and liquid water. It exists at a saturation temperature containing more than 5% of water. Dry steam is steam that is at the temperature of saturation, but does not contain water particles in suspension. It has a very high dryness fraction, with almost no moisture. Super heated steam is an extremely high-temperature vapor generated by heating the saturated steam and it contains not water particles. Water is introduced into an unpressurized reservoir and via a small pump, the water is brought into a boiler, a SS boiler and is heated to 180C which produces dry steam. With this dry steam, almost any type of cleaning can be achieved, this is chemical free cleaning, because of the heat level we are able to disinfect and by eliminating the toxics that associates with the chemicals. It is a wonderful way to clean, sanitize and disinfect hence reducing water content up to 90%. Volume Expands by 1,517 The specific volume of water at 160C is 0.01765 cubic ft/lb (0.001102 cubic meters/kg) of water. When water flashes into steam at 100C, the specific volume increases to 26.78 cubic ft/lb (1.672 cubic meters/kg). The ratio of the final volume divided by the initial volume is 26.78/0.01765 (1.672/0.001102) which equates to 1,517 times its former volume. Therefore when water vaporizes to steam, (boils) it expands to 1,517 times its former volume.

Advantages of Steam Cleaning
  • Steam has the ability to cut grease and oil and completely clean oil parts for painting, refinishing or rebuilding. Pressure cleaning, even with hot water machines, leaves an oily film on surfaces.
  • High pressure washing splutters an oily mess back onto the operator and around the cleaning area, more often than low volume, high temperature steam cleaning.
  • Higher steam temperatures provide faster and more effective sanitation, in a wide range of applications.
  • Steam supporters says that heat, is steam’s cleaning advantage. Chemicals are more effective at the higher temperatures provided by steam cleaning, making emulsifications of dirt easier.
  • Steam cleaning removes more greasy soil with less water, resulting in less run off. With less run off liquid, there is a smaller volume of waste to be handled, reducing the cost of handling and disposal.
  • There is a less splatter from steam cleaning and the soiled water is therefore more easily contained for treatment.
