The secret behind the effectiveness of deep steam cleaning is not so secret.

For centuries, our ancestors relied on hot water and steam baths for disinfection, sterilization, healing, and personal hygiene. Both hot water and steam are still being used in the 21st century for disinfection, sterilization, and cleanliness. Steam has stood the test of time because it is effective, easy to use, and friendly to humans and the environment. Steam cleaners superheat water into scorching steam that can denature and destroy microorganisms.

When steam molecules land on microorganisms, heat is transferred. It destroys proteins that make up the cells and DNA of the microorganisms leading to mass extermination. According to studies, 99% of pathogens are killed or disabled permanently when exposed directly to steam at a temperature of between 80°C and 100°C (175°F and 212°F) for at least three minutes. The use of high-temperature steam to kill and destroy viruses, bacteria, and other pathogens is known as steam disinfection.
