How to Use Steam for Pet Care and Cleaning at Home
Our furry friends become like family members and we want to give them the best home possible. Pets are a wonderful addition to any home but as any pet owner knows, they can be a bit messy, smelly or downright gross from time to time. Caring for your pets is an important aspect of pet ownership because not only does it protect your pet’s health and your family’s health, but it also helps you keep a clean home that does have strange pet odors. And, just like we want to protect our family’s health by using fewer chemical cleaning products in the home, we should also protect our pet’s health by reducing their exposure to chemicals. We have all been there – the dog has an accident on the rug, or the cat tracks in mud on its paws. Spraying a cleaning product on the spot will only treat a small aspect of the bigger problem. Those germs and odors will penetrate deeply and spray cleaners can only deal with the surface of the problem. Over time, those stains and germs you thought you removed will resurface in the form of discoloration, odor and permanent damage if left unattended. This is why chemical cleaning products are simply not the most effect solution when cleaning up after a pet.
Chemical cleaning products leave a biofilm on surfaces that only growing more bacteria. Further, we all know that cleaning all of our pet’s accessories and furniture is no easy task and is certainly not as simple as wiping down a single hard surface. Pets have cages/crates with lots of small nooks and crannies, bedding, toys, and more. It is nearly impossible to really clean every tiny crevice with traditional cleaning products but, fortunately, steam cleaners can! Steam can penetrate porous surfaces and even the tiniest crevices to lift and remove dirt and bacteria. This ensures a true cleaning has been achieved. It can also safely penetrate upholstery and other fabrics so not only will it leave pet bedding and other furniture clean but it will help reduce pet odors throughout your home. Another important reason it is important to use steam when cleaning up after your pet is that it disinfects so if your pet has an accident in your home or tracks in bacteria from outside, you can clean and disinfect your home so that illness and disease does not spread.
11 Food Processing Tools to Clean with Steam
Whether you are a home cook or a professional chef, it is always important to prepare food in a place that has been properly cleaned, with cooking utensils and tools that that are safely sanitized. Sounds simple, right? But, we all know that it is not that simple, especially in professional kitchens. Cooking surfaces, tools and equipment is not always easy to clean. There are small nooks and crannies, porous surfaces, and a variety of materials that may require different cleaning products. Hygiene and sanitations are the cornerstones of a high-quality professional kitchen or food processing facility.
In an effort to maintain such high standards, professional kitchen or food processing facilities may reach for chemical cleaners but they are far from ideal. First of all, spray chemical cleaners cannot reach every small crevice or penetrate porous surfaces, thus leaving behind a significant amount of bacteria. Second, chemical cleaners leave a chemical biofilm that is a breeding ground for microbes. Infection and disease can grow in that biofilm and cause major problems for professional kitchens or food process sing facilities. It is for this reason and more that steam cleaning is not only an alternative to chemical cleaners, but a far superior option. Steam cleaners heat water to such a high temperature that it produces a steam that is capable of disinfecting 99% of bacteria. Further, it penetrates porous surfaces and microscopic crevices to lift, disinfect and completely eliminate bacteria. Cleaning in a food processing facility involves more than cleaning the pots and pans, it is the entire environment, and that is why it is necessary to have such thorough cleaning and disinfection. Additionally, beyond cleaning power, steam cleaners aid in stain removal on things like conveyor belts, polishing of stainless steel appliances and removal of tough-to-clean grease. Below is a list of various kitchen and food processing equipment, utensils, and other areas involved in food preparation that can be effectively and easily cleaned with the power of steam. When you are ready to implement a safe, effective cleaning tool that can tackle all of your needs in one powerful product, free of chemicals, consider implementing a high-quality steam cleaning machine in your food processing facility or professional kitchen to ensure you are preparing the best and most safe food possible.

Advantages of Eco-Friendly Steam Cleaning
You spritz and spray those chemical cleaning products all over every surface of your home so that it can stay clean, stop the spread of illness and look its best. But, unfortunately, those chemical cleaning products are probably doing more harm than good. While they may disinfect and make something look clean, they leave behind a biofilm that is filled with harsh chemicals that are incredibly dangerous to humans and animals. You and your family then touch those surfaces, breathe in that air, allow food that you eat to touch those surfaces, all the while thinking you are safe because it is “clean.” Only, it isn’t safe. Those chemical-filled cleaning products run out and you continue to replace and replace them, wasting money on something that may be damaging your family’s health. It is for exactly these reasons that we at Vapamore developed our state-of-the-art steam cleaners and canister vacuums. Our products provide the ultimate clean without any chemicals. That is right, none. Our products are high-end, capable of heating water to such a high degree that it can disinfect up to 99% of bacteria while cleaning. With just water, you get better cleaning power without any of the chemical residue that you would get with other cleaners.
While it may be an investment up front to purchase a high-end steam cleaner (and yes, they are very different than the inexpensive steam cleaners you see in big box stores because those cannot achieve the level of disinfection that high-end cleaners can), the investment is well worth it. There are skeptics that may scoff at claims that those chemicals are so dangerous but many have been linked to causing asthma and potentially causing cancer. The Environmental Working Group conducted an exhaustive study of common household cleaning products and their findings were astonishing and upsetting, “Environmental Working Group’s investigation of more than 2,000 cleaning supplies on the American market has found that many contain substances linked to serious health problems. EWG concludes that fumes from some cleaning products may induce asthma in otherwise healthy individuals. A large and growing body of evidence links frequent use of many ordinary cleaning supplies at home or on the job with development of asthma and other respiratory problems. It is already known that cleaning product fumes may trigger attacks in persons previously diagnosed with asthma.Common cleaning ingredients can be laced with the carcinogenic impurity 1,4-dioxane. Independent tests have detected the presence of 1,4-dioxane in numerous name-brand cleaning supplies. Other products contain preservatives that release low levels of cancer-causing formaldehyde.Children born to women who held cleaning jobs while pregnant have an elevated risk of birth defects, according to a 2010 study by the New York State Department of Health.Some cleaners can cause chemical burns and poisonings as well as less severe irritations and allergies. Severe physical reactions signal that consumers should take care anytime they use these products.”
You have to ask yourself, is it really worth the risk?
More and more consumers are becoming informed and aware of the significant risks posed by common household cleaners, even the ones labeled “green”, “eco-friendly” or “natural”. Steam cleaning is the obvious choice when it comes to safety for you and your family. But, it is also the obvious choice when it comes to effective cleaning and disinfection, as well as saving money in the long run. Invest in a high-quality steam cleaner, such as one from Vapamore, and enjoy the safest cleaning and disinfection of your home or workplace possible.
Steam Clean Your Refrigerator
When we discuss steam cleaners and their benefits, one of our favorite words to use is ‘versatility’. Steam cleaners offer the ultimate cleaning versatility because they can literally be carried around from room to room, then taken outside, then moved to the garage, then taken to the workplace and on, and on, and on. With each move, a steam cleaner continues to provide superior cleaning power with one simple tool. Now that is versatility. If you have ever purchased a chemical cleaning product (who hasn’t?) and have stood in the aisles of the store, staring at the hundreds of different products designed to clean different things you know that there is no “one size fits all” approach to chemical cleaning. If you opt for chemical cleaners you not only endanger your health but you have to buy a large variety to clean all of the areas we mentioned above. That is not only a lot to store but it is pretty expensive to constantly keep an arsenal of chemical cleaners. That is why we highly recommend a steam cleaner to meet your wide variety of cleaning needs. One area that many find difficult and annoying to clean is the refrigerator. Even the cleanest household will encounter spills, odors, crumbs and more in their refrigerator, it is inevitable. But, not everyone knows how to properly and safely clean their refrigerator to not only protect its longevity and keep it looking and smelling its best, but protect food safety as well.
If you see a spill in your refrigerator, whether old or new, your first instinct may be to reach for the strongest chemical cleaner you can find to clean that mysterious substance and leave your refrigerator disinfected. The problem is, chemical cleaners leave a residue, also known as biofilm that is invisible to the eye. That chemical residue can spread to other surfaces, latch onto food and get ingested or actually help grow bacteria in a cold dark environment such as your refrigerator. Also, as anyone knows, if there is a spill in the refrigerator and it is not immediately cleaned up, it can be difficult to clean even with scrubbing. If it is a really bad spill and it gets on the shelves and in crevices it is even more difficult to clean; but, not with a steam cleaner. A high-end, powerful steam cleaner, such as one of the outstanding products produced by Vapamore, can heat water to such a high degree that it is capable of disinfecting up to 99% of bacteria. That disinfecting steam is propelled through a nozzle that focuses the steam right where you want it. The steam lifts and removes dirt and bacteria from even the tiniest of crevices, porous and non-porous surfaces, which leaves you with the ultimate clean refrigerator. No endless scrubbing needed! Vapamore steam cleaners are the ideal cleaning tool for your household and workplace because of its versatility, including its ability to perfectly clean your refrigerator!
