Scientifically proven technologies

One of the best technologies employed by the Healthcare sector is dry steam vapour. It fights against bacteria and viruses on three fronts, with thermal and chemical disinfection and decontamination. Through the mechanical action of surface penetration and extraction, it eliminates all contaminants.

The SARS CoV-2 virus is enveloped by a fatty layer that’s susceptible to detergent and steam vapour. It penetrates common surfaces that are porous – like unvarnished wood – and/or have non-smooth, textured and rough surfaces that harbour and hide biofilm and soil.

Biofilms are communities of bacteria that live together and thrive under the protection of a sticky glue-like layer. As the global leading cause of infections in hospitals, killing hundreds of thousands annually, you can imagine the danger these virus-ridden petri dishes pose in schools.

While manual cleaning and disinfection struggle to remove buried, dangerous organisms, dry steam vapour utilises a mix of super-heated dry steam and disinfectant that penetrates these surfaces to extract and destroy 99.99% of bacteria and viruses.

Parents, unions and local authorities voiced concerns over ageing classrooms when the government first announced the intent to reopen. How can schools guarantee the safety of children and staff when so many materials, like old, porous wooden desks and chairs are vulnerable to dangerous organisms?

Dry steam vapour cleaning and other technologies like scrubber driers, vacuums and chemicals, solve these problems to provide the safest possible environment and peace of mind to all stakeholders.

Confidence plays a big role

Parents must feel comfortable their children are safe. Kids returning home covered with infected cross-contamination because the school failed to implement the right steps could harm at-risk families. Staff want to know their health remains intact when arriving home. Cleaners have also been thrust into the frontline alongside first responders and NHS, and deserve the same duty of care that parents, pupils and other staff expect.

The simplest, most efficient and cost-effective way to build confidence in cleaning processes, and overall environmental safety, is through comprehensive efforts that leave no stone unturned. One way to achieve this is through disinfectant fogging.

Through the fog

Let’s look at classrooms as an example of a critical area that should be deep cleaned once the building empties, every single day.

Before cleaners enter the area, anxious about sanitising possibly contaminated surfaces, they can render classrooms safe through fogging. A fogging applicator can easily be attached to the dry steam vapour machine to spray a steam-mist formed with water and non-toxic disinfectant. The water acts as a carrier for the disinfectant. Treat schools like healthcare settings

Hospitals are the most cleaned environments in the world as their ‘guests’ are sick, vulnerable and high-risk. Now, the world resembles a giant hospital where everybody either is or can be sick and contagious.

When SARS CoV-2 latches onto biofilm in an unsterilised location, like schools, it creates a breeding ground for killer organisms. Schools, businesses and anywhere else must take their responsibilities seriously and build cleaning systems that achieve – as close as possible – healthcare standards.

Children under certain ages might contract the disease less often than adults, but the risks of cross-contamination from inside and outside soar without the implementation of stringent cleaning procedures. Cleaners can access an array of cleaning technologies, including microfibre cloths and chemicals, that can help inspire confidence in achieving a culture of safety in schools.

As we adjust to the new normal, cleaning practices must be put under the microscope and elevated to match those employed in healthcare settings. EDUCATIONAL AND SCHOOL FACILITIES | 49

Super-heated steam eradicates 99.99% of known bacteria and viruses, leaving surfaces decontaminated, safe, and touch dry within 10 minutes.

This process provides an environmentally safe workplace, which cleaners can confidently access to destroy remaining organisms hidden under biofilm, using dry steam vapour and microfibre cloths. Once the team completes the work, they can fog the classroom once more. Infected but asymptomatic cleaners could infect the classroom, despite wearing full PPE. This final blast leaves the area free from infection, eradicating any risk.

While industries like public transport began utilising fogging to create the safest possible environments amid COVID-19, the practice remains uncommon. Schools might struggle to invest in two separate machines, which is normally required to perform both dry steam vapour cleaning and fogging.

You can now purchase a novel fogging device that easily attaches to any single phase mobile dry steam machines, creating a dual-purpose appliance. Schools and cleaning companies can save serious time and money by simply attaching this device, rather than investing in separate appliances.
