The Best Method for Effective Sanitization of High Traffic Areas

Sterilize surgical instruments

Germs and bacteria are spread consistently every day. They are spread through human contact with one another and through human contact with inanimate objects. When another human touches these inanimate objects, the germs spread even further. Some environments are even more prone to harmful bacteria, especially areas with a large amount of human traffic. These specific areas, such as hospitals, universities, and shopping malls require more extensive of cleaning systems than your typical janitorial service.

The importance of regular cleaning and sanitization
It can be difficult to effectively remove any and all traces of bacteria in a room, especially with minimal janitorial services. Usually, more advanced cleaning systems like steam cleaning systems are needed. However, even the most advanced of steam cleaning systems can fail if they are not used regularly enough. High traffic areas should be regularly cleaned and properly sanitized. In extremely high traffic areas, an industrial dry steamcleaner may be needed frequently.

The usefulness of steam cleaners
Steam kills 99% of common household germs and bacteria like E. Coli, salmonella, and staph, as well as dust mites and bed bugs. Steam cleaning systems are a common cleaning form in residential settings, but can also be especially beneficial in busy commercial settings. They replace the usage of harmful and strong cleaners that contain air hazard ingredients. Pairing steam cleaning with sanitization can be an extremely effective way to remove all types of bacteria and germs.

The need for quicker cleaning systems
When you have high foot traffic areas, it is already difficult to remove ever trace of bacteria. With so many people, there is already an increased amount of bacteria and germs present. There are also often time constraints with cleaning largely frequented areas. Thus, a quicker and efficient cleaning system, like steam cleaning systems are needed. The University of Washington?s Odegard Library, used by up to 15,000 students each day, conducted a trial comparing a superheated steam cleaning system and their existing cleaning methods. Superheated steam took on average 42.5 minutes per restroom, compared to 46 minutes for the existing program. It is hoped that these results can improve even more.

The proper cleaning of hard to reach areas
There are some areas in both residential and commercial settings that are especially difficult to properly clean. These spaces might include behind the toilets, paper towel dispensers, behind computers and under keyboards, behind garbage cans, retail conveyor belts, and hard to reach parts of your vehicle. The cleaning tasks of these hard to reach areas tend to get put off and inhabit thousands of bacteria and germs. One of the benefits of steam cleaning systems with dry ice blasting abilities is that steam is able to reach even the hardest of places, even commercial conveyor belt cleaners. This method can also be helpful in eliminated bed bugs from crevices in the bed and mattress.

Multiple types of bacteria
Different types of germs and bacteria spread different illnesses. This is often what contributes to a person being sick multiple times throughout the year. Although your body is able to build up resistances against one type of germ, another enters and causes a different type of illness. With so many different forms of bacteria, an effective cleaner needs to have the ability to remove all of them. Steam cleaners work with extreme heat and are able to effectively wipe out most types of bacteria.

Every human has hundreds of thousands of germs on their body at any given time. Although many of these germs are not harmful, they can be, when passed onto another person. Every day, we pick up other germs from people and objects. It is important that businesses make every effort to effectively remove all bacteria on a daily basis. The best and quickest method for doing this is with steam cleaning systems. Steam cleaning systems eliminate chemical residues while sanitizing the surface being treated. Because so little water is consumed, approximately 1.5 quarts per hours, it is a virtually mess free and extremely effective way to completely sanitize either a residential or commercial environment.
