Sanitizing your Home or Office – Sanitization Services in Boston, Ma

Keeping your house clean is a big task, but keeping it sanitary is another obstacle altogether! We all know about the benefits of cleaning for keeping your space visually appealing and tidy. But it’s less common to think of cleaning as a method to keep your space safe and sanitary. 

In this article, we’re focusing on the benefits of steam cleaning for keeping a living space clean and sanitized. Sanitizing your space with a steam cleaner is highly effective in eliminating dangerous substances that can contribute to hazardous living conditions. Steam cleaning takes aim at bacteria, germs, mold, mildew, and more!

What is Steam Cleaning? 

Before we get started, it helps to address what exactly steam cleaning actually is. A steam cleaner uses only water to get the job done! It heats the water past boiling to create steam, and forces the steam through a pressurized opening to blast away dirt and grime. The undesirable substances are collected (generally with a microfiber cloth). 

Steam cleaning is touted for its superior deep cleaning capabilities. Simply put, steam can reach areas that other cleaning methods can’t. The steam actually penetrates deep into various surfaces, fabrics, and carpets, and pries dirt loose. The high temperature also works to kill various bacteria, germs, dust mites, and more. 

To learn more about the advantages of sanitizing your house with the power of steam, let’s check out the full range of benefits: 

Benefits of Sanitizing a House or Office with Steam

One of the main reasons that many prefer sanitizing with steam is that it doesn’t rely on harsh chemicals which may harm the environment. Steam cleaners can work with the power of tap water only! This makes them a superior option for the environment. No more reliance on hazardous cleaning chemicals to sanitize a space. The hot steam can efficiently deep clean an area and kill germs and bacteria. 

Additionally, although steam cleaning uses water, it actually still uses less water than you would use on a typical clean. Steam cleaning uses up to 80% less water than other regular cleaning methods, and doesn’t pollute our waste water with chemicals! 

Aside from not harming the environment, steam cleaning eliminates the need to rely on chemicals that may harm you. Many sanitizing products rely on harsh chemicals to kill germs and bacteria. Not only can these substances be unnecessarily harsh on your various surfaces (counters, carpets, etc.), it is actually a bit counterintuitive – since you are actually relying on harsh chemicals to “sanitize” a space.

There is sometimes a tendency to think of “environmentally friendly” options as being less effective than traditional options. This is not the case with steam cleaning! A steam cleaner provides a deep, powerful, and thorough clean. The steam penetrates deep into surfaces, and pries loose what can’t be reached with other cleaning equipment. You don’t have to make the trade-off between the environment and effectiveness, a steam cleaner works both ways! 

Another benefit of professional cleaning is that it frees up time for you to do other things! You’re busy – you have things to do, and deadlines to meet! You don’t have time to clean and sanitize your house on your own, which is why so many rely on professional cleaners. 

Having someone professionally clean your home eliminates the stress and commitment that comes with routine household maintenance. Whether you need a deep-clean, a standard clean, or a regularly scheduled touch-up, a professional cleaner works around your schedule, and around your needs! 

Owning a steam cleaner is expensive. Especially given that you don’t really need to steam clean your house on a regular basis. It isn’t often worth the investment to buy a steam cleaner of your own, which is why so many will hire a professional when they need the job done. If you want an occasional deep-clean steam sanitization, then it might be more cost effective to hire a professional than to do it yourself. Professionals already have the equipment, and they use it often, which passes these savings onto you! 

Additionally, professionals know how to use the equipment. A steam cleaner isn’t just something you can pick up and use. The intensity and temperature need to be adjusted for different surfaces, and there are different techniques which apply to different cleaning jobs. Additionally, certain areas of your house are NOT suitable for a steam cleaner. A professional already knows these ins-and-outs, and they will be sure to steam clean your house in a safe way, achieving a thorough clean without the risk of any damage.
