about steam cleaning
Through steam cleaning systems, water is passed under high pressure through a burner, creating steam that passes through a hose and reaches the spray nozzle at 150 degrees. The carefully regulated combination of steam, water and oxygen has adjustable working pressure and flow rate.
Steam cleaning causes a ‘thermo shock’ effect, which causes surface pollutants to overheat and break up so they can be removed without damaging the surface. This makes it ideal for cleaning render, old stone, masonry and softer substrates such as wood.
Our systems are vehicle-mounted and fully self-contained so we can turn up, switch on and start working without requiring access to mains services, which is ideal out of hours.
Steam cleaning is environmentally friendly, with low fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. It also reduces the need for harmful chemicals.
