Steam Cleaning and Disinfection for Ringworm

If you, a loved one, or your household pet has begun to show symptoms of ringworm, it is important to get treatment right away.  Ringworm is highly contagious and easily spreads through human to human, pet to human, or object to human contact.  Mayo Clinic describes what exactly ringworm is, “Ringworm of the body is a fungal infection that develops on the top layer of your skin. It’s characterized by a red circular rash with clearer skin in the middle. It may itch. Ringworm gets its name because of its appearance. No actual worm is involved…Mild ringworm often responds to antifungal medications that you apply to your skin. For more-severe infections, you may need to take antifungal pills for several weeks.”  If someone in your home has ringworm antifungal medication should be used as soon as possible but it is also a good idea to thoroughly clean and disinfect your home so that the infection is fully eradicated from your home.  Because ringworm is so contagious and can be spread through so many different ways, cleaning must be thorough and the best way to do so is with a steam cleaner.

5 Steps to Clean and Disinfected Granite Countertops Using a Steam Cleaner

Many homes today have granite or other natural stone countertops such as quartz or marble.  And, while many of these stones are not only beautiful but durable, they do require care and maintenance to look beautiful for years to come.  Additionally, countertops come in contact with a lot of dirt, grime and bacteria.  Many homeowners may reach for their chemical cleaning products to clean and disinfect but those products can actually damage many granite and natural stone countertops.  Chemical cleaning products leave a residue behind that can stain countertops.  And, not only that, but chemical cleaning products can also create a biofilm which actually traps bacteria on your countertop and slowly grows, becoming harder and harder to eliminate.  For these reasons (and more!) it is best to clean and disinfect your granite countertops with a steam cleaner.  Steam cleaning is safe for your countertops, eliminates 99% of bacteria, will not stain your countertops, will not create biofilm, and will not leave hazardous chemicals on your countertops which means you do not have to worry that your food will be contaminated with chemicals or that chemicals will get on your skin.
