Here’s How Steam Cleaners Can Help Disinfect Your Home Against Coronavirus

Published April 29

Toilet paper isn’t the only thing that’s missing from store shelves. If you’ve been to the shops, hoping to find any sort of cleaning supplies and have failed, not to worry. There are a few good alternatives such as a pressure steam cleaner, that can provide ways to kill coronavirus. 

One thing to note is that COVID-19 is still fairly new, and there isn’t much concrete information about how long it can last on surfaces and what the most effective killer is. This will be general information that is commonly used for virus and germ mitigation, as well as disinfection and cleaning.

As we currently know, the coronavirus can last on various surfaces for a number of days, such as door handles, countertops and sink taps, as well as carpets and upholstery. It’s important to understand that simply “cleaning” these surfaces won’t be killing any viruses. 

Cleaning is the removal of dirt, debris and grime, leaving a surface squeaky clean. Sanitizing lowers the number of germs on surfaces to safe levels but doesn’t kill them. Disinfecting kills germs, either through chemicals or heat. 

Some disinfectant wipes are good to use, as they’re essentially soaked in a solution with disinfecting detergent. Wipes also need to be used properly to be effective. One has to really put in some elbow grease to get the full effect. This is why some wipes and spray solutions don’t always do the job. Plus, some cheaper brands may not disinfect at all, so you need to be careful with what you buy. 

Of course, wipes don’t cut it for some surfaces. Your house may have curtains, carpets and rugs for example. Some of the products available at supermarkets aren’t specifically designed for fabric and carpet cleaning. You can always try your hand at a DIY cleaning job, but if you don’t want to risk causing more harm, a reliable steam cleaning in Sydney can be well worth the money.

Steam cleaning and disinfection services can keep your surfaces clean and your family safe from the coronavirus. Normally, steam cleaners are useful for tackling a variety of household surfaces, such as tiled and hardwood floors, carpets and upholstery without the need of scrubbing. Steam can easily lift dirt and grease, but can also be used with detergents and disinfectants, making them powerful cleaning agents for the home. 

Another trick up your sleeve is that the coronavirus can be killed with heat. A hot, humid day won’t do it but the scorching temperatures from a pressure steam clean will. When combined with a disinfectant detergent, you give yourself the best chance of keeping safe. With professional upholstery cleaning services, you can ensure they will use the most effective disinfectants to kill viruses and germs.

Continuing social distancing and washing your hands with soap frequently will go a long way right now. With more shops and services opening up again, it’s so important to remember these to keep yourself safe.
