In health facilities, infectious diseases such as staph are generally spread via staff, patients and inanimate contact objects. While there are detailed precautions in place to prevent the spreading from staff and patients, current cleaning practices for inanimate contact objects are very reactive.
At present it is only once an outbreak is detected that thermal environmental cleaning of all inanimate objects and surfaces takes place. Instead, the way forward to further prevent the spread of staph would be to enhance everyday cleaning on a permanent, rather than a reactive one-off basis.
To do so facilities need to incorporate modern cleaning technologies such as dry steam vapour cleaning into their daily cleaning regimes.
With boiler temperatures of up to 190º C, dry steam cleaners have proven to destruct bacteria in moments, even on textile surfaces. Tecnovap steam is especially ideal for efficiently cleaning in animates such as:
• Window Blinds • Dividing Curtains • Mattresses • Bed Frames • Arm Chairs • Walls & Floors
New research from the UK’s Department of Health shows the necessity to implement new procedures for infection control in our health care facilities. It is no longer acceptable to use ‘traditional’ cleaning methods for infection control, as this report shows the comparison of these techniques against new technology such as steam and micro fibre.

The JetSteam Maxi is the latest release and the No.1 seller in the Tecnovap steam cleaner range. Despite being ultra compact, the JetSteam Maxi is a powerful steam generator that outperforms steam cleaners well over twice its size.
Producing steam temperatures in excess of +180°C under 8 Bar pressure the JetSteam Maxi makes lite work of even the toughest cleans like commercial kitchen or industrial degreasing. Such high temperatures are also ideal for sanitising all types of surfaces including textile upholstery, walls and general infection control.
