Hygienic and thorough cleaning with professional steam cleaners and vacuum cleaners

The steam emerges from the nozzle in very fine droplets and, depending on the type of appliance, at a maximum temperature of around 100 °C and a maximum pressure of 3 to 4 up to 8 bar. The acceleration is about 170 km/h. Therefore, the steam reaches all cracks or rubber folds where brushes or cloths can hardly reach. In this way, hard-to-reach areas can be cleaned hygienically and thoroughly.
