Hygienic, cost-effective and environmentally friendly: Kärcher steam cleaners clean all hard surfaces without chemical cleaning agents.
Heat is a key factor for more hygiene
The use of detergents and disinfectants plays an important role in cleaning processes. What many do not know: Hot water and steam also make a significant contribution and can therefore also help to combat germs, bacteria and viruses.
A study by the Thuringian State Office for Agriculture* showed that water temperature has a major impact on reducing germs and bacterial colonies. At 60˚C water temperature the number of bacterial colonies is already reduced by up to 90%. Under steam stage (155˚C) even an almost complete reduction could be achieved under the test conditions.
In order to support the contribution of hot water, the addition of disinfectant by the high-pressure cleaner is recommended.

** With selective cleaning, i.e. with a steaming duration of 30 seconds at the maximum steam stage with direct contact with the surface being cleaned, 99.999 % of the enveloped viruses, such as coronavirus or influenza viruses (except the hepatitis B virus) can be eliminated on smooth, hard surfaces (test germ: modified vaccinia virus Ankara). **When cleaning at a cleaning speed of 30 cm/s at the maximum steam stage and with direct contact with the surface to be cleaned, 99.99 % of all common household bacteria on smooth, hard household surfaces are killed (test germ: Enterococcus hirae).
