How to Increase Efficiency & Lower Cost with Commercial Dry Vapor Steam Cleaners

Many business owners and managers are looking toward the potential benefits of commercial dry vapor steam cleaners these days. However, they are still trying to make the right decision. They may not have all the information yet. They may be finding too much information and trying to sort through and find the important bits that are going to help them make the decision. They may even have just started their inquest, because they heard about it from a friend or colleague, but are not quite sure where to start. The reality is that commercial dry vapor steam cleaners offer a new option for a business that is looking to lower their cost and increase their productivity. Nowadays, what business isn’t looking to do just that?

But, how do commercial steam vapor cleaners help business achieve their goals? There are several things that they do that traditional cleaning methods fall a bit short on. For one, a commercial or industrial dry vapor steam cleaner is not just used to clean a wide range of surfaces within an office, storefront, warehouse, factory, hospital, hotel, or other place of business. These machines also sanitize the area. This means that you are not only having a place that looks cleaner when the cleaning is done, but you have removed most if not all germs from the surface areas. According to the CDC most germs are killed off by the time temperatures reach about 160 degrees Fahrenheit.  A high quality industrial steam cleaner should produce temperatures at the steam nozzle of somewhere near 200 degrees Fahrenheit. Be forewarned, though, as you continue in your search for an industrial dry steam cleaner. Some manufacturers will spout off numbers at or above 300 degree Fahrenheit for the steam produced by their machines. This is most likely the temperature inside of the boiler unit, not the active end of the steam. Depending on the design, a varying amount of degrees is lost between the boiler and the nozzle. You are looking for the temperature of the steam produced by the unit.

But, how does this help your business? Consider this: is your business negatively impacted by the attendance of your employees? How often are they missing work for falling victim to a cold or flu? What if you could reduce the chance of staff, vendors, and customers falling ill? Wouldn’t that help you business? By using the power of steam to kill germs and remove other contaminants in the workplace, you are doing just that. Plus, imagine improving your people’s health so they have more energy and better focus while they are working. We know that many times people come in even when they are ill, but if one of the places where they spend so much time—at their job—has fewer germs, they aren’t going to be calling off for illness as often and they will not be coming in with illnesses as often either. You have just taken a big step in increasing the productivity and efficiency of your workforce.

Consider what steps your people need to go through when cleaning. If you have a business in food service whether it is a food processing plant, food preparation or a restaurant, you have to have concerns about sanitization, which we already mentioned earlier. But what about the grease from cooking? This goes the same for those who run manufacturing and machining operations? You need to have your people take time to clean off the grease and oils from everything. This includes ovens and burners and stoves as well as machine parts and assembly tables. How long does that take? How often do you need to do it? What kind of cleaning chemicals do you have to buy to cut through the grease? How good is it when the job is done? How much are you spending in cloth or paper towels yearly? What if you could significantly reduce the amount of time spent on this painstaking but necessary task? What if you could get the job done faster and better? What if you did not have to spend all that money each year on cleaning supplies, because you had found a solution that didn’t require the same amount of scrubbing and manual labor? An industrial dry vapor steam cleaner is designed to do just that.

Let us talk a little bit more about those cleaning chemicals again. How much are you spending on these? Are you having to buy them in bulk for your business? Do you have to have material safety data sheets (MSDS) for the cleaning chemicals used at the business? Do employees complain about the odor from the cleaning chemicals?: How effective are those chemicals at cleaning anyway? Ever work with any of the cleaners that say to let area sit in open air for 4 hours (or more) before use? Those cleaning chemicals can be a major pain. First, they hit us in the wallet. Then, they start closing down parts of our business for a few hours. Then, someone new comes in and they have some sort of allergy so we have to start finding a new chemical or cleaning when no one is around, having people come in after hours, etc. With an industrial or commercial steam cleaner, you can avoid these problems. The heat from the steam is enough to break most adhesive bonds between various dirt and contaminants and the surface that is being cleaned. Beyond that, most cleaning units also have a variety of attachments such as specially designed brushes that can scour surfaces or squeeze floors.

These same vapor cleaning units produce mostly steam. That means they are safe to use where water and most cleaners are not. They can be used around machines and electronics without having to worry about rust or shorting things out. You also do not have to spend the extra time waiting for things to dry. Commercial steam cleaners produce a lot of water and little steam, so that is a constant issue. Industrial dry vapor steam cleaners, however, do away with the excess water and make clean up much faster and easier.
