How Does Steam Kill Germs?

Germs and bacteria pose significant challenges in commercial and industrial environments. Fortunately, steam cleaning provides a simple and effective solution. This blog post explores how steam kills germs and highlights the remarkable benefits of using commercial and industrial steam cleaning equipment.

The Science Behind Steam Disinfection

Steam cleaning is a natural and chemical-free method that utilizes high-temperature steam to eliminate germs, bacteria, and allergens. Water in the steam cleaner’s boiler heats up and transforms into steam vapor, which is released through the cleaning attachment. The intense heat, typically ranging from 200 to 300 degrees Fahrenheit, plays a crucial role in killing a wide range of germs and bacteria.

The heat breaks down the molecular structure of microorganisms, effectively destroying their cell walls. This eliminates common household bacteria, including E. coli and Salmonella, and harmful viruses like influenza and SARS-CoV-2. Steam also reaches into tiny crevices and porous surfaces that traditional cleaning methods may miss, ensuring a thorough and deep cleaning process.
