Combat COVID-19 with a Proven Cleaning and Disinfecting Combo

Clean, disinfect and knock-out viruses with the one-two punch of dry vapour steam and an approved (Health Canada and the US EPA) disinfectant cleaner.

In order to properly clean and disinfect, even tiny nooks and crannies, Sinclair Cleaning Systems recommends the Optima Steamer XD/XE in conjunction with Concrobium Broad Spectrum Disinfectant II. The two work together to offer an effective cleaning and disinfection strategy that both sanitizes and deodorizes.

The Optima Steamer XD/XE

A continuous and ample amount of steam can replace the use of high-pressure washers and/or, in some cases, harmful and expensive chemicals. The Optima Steamer XD, a diesel-powered portable commercial-grade steamer, from Steamericas, can generate powerful steam continuously. Steam sanitizes and disinfects while it cleans, penetrating pores, fibres and microscopic surface abrasions.

The Optima Steamer's patented boiler design super heats water into "Dry Vapor Steam"; using a fraction of the water used by other methods.

  • No waste-water run-off or overspray
  • Can clean sensitive surfaces and instruments
  • Clean hard to reach areas
  • Chemical-free sanitation and deodorization
  • Remove stains, grease, bacteria, mold, yeast and fungi

Can the Optima Steamer deactivate the coronavirus?

The short answer is yes. The data is promising according to validations, performed by Steamericas, on other microorganisms. A growing list of public information points to the virus being deactivated when being exposed to moisture and temperatures over 80°C (175°F). As you can see from the graph below, the Optima Steamer XD/XE series is more than capable of meeting the required output. However, because the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19 is still new, there is no specific validation yet for steam deactivation.

How can you make absolutely certain that you are deactivating the coronavirus?

Using the Optima Steamer to reach every nook and cranny, in conjunction with an approved disinfectant such as Concrobium Broad Spectrum Disinfectant II (see below).

Concrobium Broad Spectrum Disinfectant II

Concrobium Broad Spectrum Disinfectant II is approved by both Health Canada and the U.S. EPA to disinfect and control the spread of viruses. It represents the next generation of plant-based disinfection for professional restoration contractors. The unique, proprietary solution is botanically-derived and offers significant advantages over existing botanical solutions on the market. Unlike other products, Concrobium Broad Spectrum Disinfectant II provides superior cleaning so users don’t have to resort to two separate products for disinfection and cleaning. Another benefit of Concrobium is that contractors and their customers won’t have to contend with the irritating, lingering fumes that are associated with first-generation botanical formulas.

This system is ideal for a wide range of commercial applications, including:

  • Ambulances, fleet vehicles and auto detailing
  • Nursing homes and long-term care facilities
  • Medical offices
  • Restaurants, commercial kitchens and cafeterias
  • Hotels and motels
  • Farm operations

NOTE: Current CDC Recommendations for Commercial Cleaning and Disinfection

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends using PPE (personal protection equipment) including goggles, a respirator-type mask, gloves and clothing protection for any professional cleaning and disinfecting services performed during this pandemic. Any type of cleaning or spraying can disturb the virus contagions causing them to be airborne. Clothing and porous materials should be treated as hazardous and laundry machines equipped with steam features should be used.
