Kill germs & bacteria
This can have grave repercussions in environments where hygiene is an absolute imperative, as in the food and medical industries. Over time, it is necessary to increase the amount of detergents and disinfectants used to maintain the required hygienic results.
This increases the risk of chemical contamination of food products. In addition, as many people are allergic to detergents, their usage can have serious effects in hospital environments.
Pathogenic agents are not resistant to the thermal shock of vapor cleaning. Research has demonstrated that Menikini saturated steam treatment eliminates 99% of bacterial fungi and mold on virtually any surface. Unlike other cleaning methods, vapor is able to enter into all surface cracks and crevasses. Even with frequent vapor cleaning, pathogenic agents are unable to build up immunity to the thermal shock.
The absence of water, the instantaneous drying of the cleaned surfaces and the reduced use of detergents are all factors which help maintain the optimum sanitary conditions.
Protect your loved ones from parasites
Bedbugs: we have learned that bed bug management cannot be accomplished using pesticides alone. A systematic approach is needed. Until recently, professionals were recommending throwing away affected box springs and mattresses. Fortunately, today we have discovered that dry steam when applied to the mattresses, couches and carpets will virtually eliminate all stages of the bedbugs including the hard to kill eggs.
Mites and acari: mites cause several forms of allergic diseases, including hay fever, asthma and eczema and are known to aggravate atopic dermatitis. Mites are usually found in warm and humid locations, including beds. It is thought that inhalation of mites during sleep exposes the human body to some antigens that induce hypersensitivity reaction. Dust mite allergens are thought to be among the heaviest dust allergens. Regular steam sanitizing of mattresses and blankets can help killing mites and acari.
Fleas: this small wingless jumping insect feeds on the blood of mammals and birds. It sometimes transmits diseases through its bite. The combination of dry steam and vacuuming should eliminate fleas definitely from the environment.
Fight allergies & diseases
Studies have shown that a significant portion of adult asthma is due to atopic sensitization to dust mites. It has been estimated that as many as 1.2 billion people could have some form of chronic sensitization to dust mites.
Typical symptoms of house dust mite allergies are itchiness, sneezing, inflamed or infected eczema, watering/reddening eyes, runny nose and clogging in the lungs.
The environment of bedding is optimal for most dust mites, and comparative studies have shown that the density of dust mites in mattresses to be on average greater than 2500 per gram of dust.
Cleaning beds with most vacuum cleaners will not remove dust mite allergens, but instead throw them into the air and increase their volatility.
Exposure to a high temperature shock will typically prove fatal to house dust mites. Cleaning with dry steam at lethal temperatures has been shown to be sufficient to kill all the dust mites in bedding.
Sanitize environments with dry steam
This article on ethical building explains how dry steam technology is essential for a deep and sanitizing cleaning of living environments.
Menikini steam generators avoid water waste, reduce the use of chemicals thus eliminating unpleasant odors for better air quality and guarantee efficient and economical cleaning.
Innovation for healthier living
In an article from the magazine Ok Salute, the Italian Society of Environmental Medicine (SIMA) in collaboration with Menikini, talks about technological innovation for sanitation, from disinfection of surfaces with steam to the use of photocatalytic technology to purify the air, up to digital therapies.
Menikini by your side to fight COVID-19
With the severe pandemic unfolding, it is important for businesses to use the proper cleaning tools and methods to reduce the risk of infection.
