3 Ways Dry Steam Cleaning Helps Kill Viruses & Bacteria

Updated: Feb 21, 2022

With flu season upon us, you know how important it is to ensure you and your family's protection from flu-causing viruses and allergens.

A clean environment is a healthy solution, but what you may not know is...

Not all cleaning methods are created equal.

Here at Wash My Ride, we know that traditional cleaning methods do not entirely kill and eliminate viruses and bacteria — which means you and your family are at risk of getting sick.

Unfortunate? Very.

We all know how unforgiving the common cold can be, so how can you protect yourself and your household from catching the flu?

One of the most effective ways to clean and disinfect your vehicle and home is using dry-steam cleaning technology.

Not only does dry steam provide superior cleaning results while saving the environment, but it also protects you and your family from dangerous bacteria and viruses.

How exactly?

Good question.

Here are 3 ways dry-steam cleaning helps kill viruses and bacteria:

(1) High-Temperature Steam Is A Natural Antimicrobial Agent

Unlike traditional cleaning, the high temperature of dry steam is the most effective way to eliminate germs.

According to the CMU, all it takes is 170 degrees Fahrenheit for mold, mildew, germs, viruses, and allergens to die completely (Central Methodist University).

As a result, a simple detail using dry steam can eliminate all forms of viruses in your car.

(2) Dry-Steam Cleaning Reaches Areas Other Cleaning Methods Never Could

With most cleaning methods, you can kill some viruses and bacteria.

However, some germs will escape and continue to put you and your family at risk.

On the other hand, most dry steamers are able to clean the smallest of cracks and crevices, which means your vehicle is 100% free from germs.

This way, you can rest knowing your vehicle isn't secretly putting the health of you and your loved ones at risk.

(3) No Use Of Dangerous Chemicals!

Most cleaning chemicals do more harm than good compared to dry steam.

And that's because if applied or removed incorrectly, chemicals will contaminate the air and the interior of your vehicle.

Dry steam cleaning technology, however, uses only superheated water vapor. Hence, the air and surface areas remain "healthy and clean" for all to enjoy (Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification).

Now that you know of the advantages of dry steam technology…

And exactly how it can protect you and your loved ones from catching a common cold or the flu this season, why not schedule an interior detailing service with Wash My Ride?
