Hospital Hygiene Sponsor Polti Professional

Polti S.p.A. is the leading producer of steam appliances in Europe. Our vast experience in the world of steam cleaning is the result of over 30 years of design, development and innovation.

Healthcare through technological advancement is key to the Polti mission. We have long been investing in technology and people in order to achieve advanced hygiene products, which can be used to decrease the risk of infection and contamination across all healthcare and professional sectors.

Steam is an ideal resource for cleaning and disinfecting. It acts as a natural surface-active agent, dissolving grease particles and reaching even the most inaccessible

areas. Heat and force allow steam to detach and dissolve dirt, freeing and capturing all dust particles within its passage, thus delivering an extraordinarily fast, safe and hygienic cleaning system.

The Polti Mondial Vap appliance range produces steam at high temperatures (150°C) and under a very high pressure. Extremely versatile, they can be used for a number of cleaning purposes with multi-functional operating settings; steam only, vacuum only, steam and vacuum together, with or without detergents and at a hot or cold wash. With all these functions in one, the Polti Mondial Vap is cost effective and efficient at cleaning a multitude of flooring, furnishing and surfaces; idea for hotels, restaurants and offices.

In public places with a high degree of people traffic, particularly hospitals and care and

nursing homes, there are numerous sources of biological contamination that can lead to an increased risk of infection. In all these places cleaning alone is not enough. It is necessary to disinfect to reduce the microbial, fungal and viral contamination to a safe level.

Two years ago, Polti began a project to further the use of steam as a cleaning agent by developing a product that could aid in the prevention of infections through viruses, spores, fungi and bacteria on surfaces and floors. The Worldwide patented Polti ‘Sani System’ was developed; the integrated solution for professional hygiene and steam disinfection.

The alternative to traditional and chemical disinfection is again steam, but not the steam generated by traditional steam cleaners. For disinfecting, steam has to be even drier and dispersed at an even higher temperature. In addition, it is essential that there is no contact between the surface being treated and the cleaning tool, which would cause a degree of cross-contamination.

The Polti Sani System is a class 2A medical device for disinfecting surfaces with a high risk of biological contamination. The System is based on the synergy action between dry overheated steam at very high temperatures (180°C) and the HPMed agent which acts as an adjuvant to the disinfecting action of steam. The system is not only integrated and easy to use, but more importantly reduces the bacterial, fungal and viral loads in seconds. The mixture of steam and HPMed can be used in the presence of people, which makes

it excellent for areas of high public traffic.

The Polti range of professional and medical steam cleaners and disinfectors, including the Sani System Kit, and the Steam Mop and Steam & Walk, are available from selected distributors across the UK and Ireland.

We have also produced a number of case studies showing the effectiveness of steam within operational settings. To request a copy of a case study or for more information and to enquire about our range, please email
