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.
