Stop the Spread of the Flu with a Steam Cleaner

If you are not taking this year’s flu outbreak seriously, you should be.  Reports keep coming in about how strong this flu virus is and just how many people have been affected.  The flu virus is highly contagious and can lead to extreme illness and, unfortunately as we have seen, even death.  ABC News reports on just how bad the flu is this year, “The U.S. Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta said 14,676 people have been hospitalized with influenza since the flu season began in October, double the number from all of last year and the highest ever recorded…The CDC’s latest influenza report shows that at least 53 children have died from the flu this season, including 16 just last week.”  There are many person hygiene precautions such as washing hands and covering when you cough or sneeze that should be taken to help prevent the spread of the flu but many times that simply is not enough.  If your home, school or office has been hit by the flu it is imperative that you take every precaution to stop it in its tracks.  Chemical cleaners use harsh chemicals that are often not safe to be breathed in by adults or children and should not even be touched for fear of skin contamination.  And, what about carpeted areas?  What do you do if bodily fluids such as vomit are in the carpet – can you truly clean and disinfect carpet?  With a steam cleaner, you can!

Steam Cleaning Disinfects Classrooms for Infection Prevention

This winter many cities have experienced particularly bad cold and flu seasons.  It seems like infection is everywhere and if there is one place that those germs are always present it is classrooms.  Children simply are not as good at infection prevention techniques like covering when they sneeze or cough or washing hands frequently.  That means that they are at an elevated risk of contracting an infection.  Proper classroom m cleaning is incredibly important but not always as simple as it may sound.  With so many children it can be difficult to thoroughly and effectively clean and disinfect throughout the day.  There are a myriad of surfaces that need to be cleaned including hard flooring, carpet, rugs, countertops, sinks, toilets, writing utensils, scissors, toys, and more.  Because there is such a wide range a teacher would typically need multiple different chemical cleaning products and cleaning tools.  And, it is not safe to expose children to so many harsh chemicals so there is not very many practical moments during the day to clean.  Because of this, adequate cleaning is often not achieved in the classroom setting.  But, it does not have to be this way.  Steam cleaning classrooms can overhaul classroom cleaning procedures and produce a new level of cleaning and disinfection.
