Nilfisk launches complete steamer range

15 April 2010

Nilfisk are launching a complete steamer range to complement their floor care products. The steam cleaners instantly clean and sanitise surfaces using superheated steam. They offer the benefit of being environmentally friendly, reducing the use of water and detergent by up to 80%.

Suitable for a range of both indoor and outdoor applications, they are an ideal complement to the floor care range, cleaning areas that other machines are unable to reach.

The Nilfisk development team are launching 7 models ranging from the SO4500 at 4.5 bar pressure to the MD8000 at 8 bar. Models are provided with hoses and extension tubes and are available with and without a vacuum function.

Dry steam cleaning offers many advantages over alternative methods. Soft materials such as upholstery and blinds can be cleaned in situ. Materials and surfaces are left clean and odour free with minimal amounts of water residue. Mould, bacteria, mildew and any remaining chemical contaminants are easily removed.

Glass and mirrors are often left with smears of chemical residue after normal cleaning; it is this residue that attracts dust and dirt. Dry steam cleaning leaves glass and mirrors streak free and clear of chemicals.

Commercial kitchen areas in supermarkets, factories and restaurants are particularly vulnerable to spills, stains and grease. With environmental health regulations and food standards increasing it is critical that areas can be cleaned quickly and effectively.

The use of chemicals is restricted in many food preparation areas. Non chemical sanitisation is possible by the use of a vacuum facility with the steam cleaner. Steam loosens the bacteria which are then sucked into the recovery tank. Chlorine tablets placed in the recovery tank add to the anti-bacteria effect.

Independent laboratory research was conducted on these models in 2008. This research set out to investigate the antimicrobial efficiency of these machines with the vacuum facility. Tests confirm >99.99% removal of all challenge organisms under dirty conditions.

Food preparation facilities can also utilise steam to clean and sanitise fridges and freezers in one easy step. Additionally stainless steel worktops can be left clean and polished without the use of chemical or excessive man hours.

Four of the Nilfisk steamer models are also approved on the Water Technology List of the Governments ECA (enhanced capital allowance) scheme. This scheme encourages the use of green technology by providing tax incentives for companies who purchase qualifying equipment. Companies can claim either 21% or 28% of the whole cost as a tax saving in the first year.

Nilfisk are one of the world’s largest manufacturers of commercial and industrial cleaning equipment. From small commercial vacuum cleaners to road sweepers Nilfisk offer a complete and affordable solution to all cleaning challenges. Demonstrations, on-site training, service, hire and finance options are offered from a direct sales team. Contact 01284 763163
