Although water reaches the boiling point at 212 degrees F (one hundred degrees C), the procedure of warming water to well above that temperature generates a highly activated and energized steam which can be utilized to extensively sanitize practically any non electrical surface. It is equally effective for cleaning workplace desks, to hallways, to kitchen and washroom fixtures. The procedure operates by to “plumping” up soil molecules with water and pressuring washing the soil, dirt, oil, and grime.
This procedure is referred to rehydration and it operates by violating the atomic ties which permit the microscopic particles of soil to attach together and to themselves.
As soon as this rehydration procedure has begun, dry or oily soil plumps up with many times its weight in water, the dirt effectively floats away into the fluid solution which is easily rubbed away through any usual cleaning or scouring activity.
Another facet of the vapor action of steam that is so effective at temperatures that allow the steam to migrate onto the soil motes. Some vapor steam processes superheat the steam to a temperature which could surpass 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) which is the temperature which could be used in an oven to a cook beef or bake a pie.
The highly elevated temperature of the steam vapor functions to vibrate the molecules inside the atoms of soil as so to diminish their atomic ties. As soon as this is accomplished, the power of the steam vapor easily breaks up the molecules which make them easy to rub up with a microfiber fabric.
