At Blue Duck valet, we our committed to doing our best for the environment and our customers health, which is why we use a steam-cleaning system with significantly green, biodegradable credentials compared to a traditional, dated, pressure-washer system.
There are four distinct features of this eco-friendly car cleaning system:
In a traditional pressure-washer cleaning system, water is blasted out at a rate of approximately 30L per minute, which equates to 300L in a 10 minute car wash. In comparison, steam cleaning uses a minute amount of just 0.0042L, as well as reduced electrical output. It also negates the need to use harsh chemicals, which eliminates harmful chemical effluent.
The steam penetrates into the material it cleans to deep clean and as well as this, it provides the highest degree of bactericidal efficiency. How? The heat alone ensures that the bonds between microorganisms and the surface structure are broken and the vapour itself saponifies dirt, grease and grime.
You might think your car is a germ-free space but in a British study done for insurance.co.uk*, it was found that there were 285 types of bacteria PER EVERY SQUARE INCH on the internal surface of 25 cars. In another study, steering wheels were found to have over 700 species of bacteria, yes I said species, not just 700 bacteria, GROSS. Traditional methods of internal surface cleaning do not factor in bacterial adherence to the surfaces.
Steam cleaning is ideal for internal car surfaces, that require a gentler touch. It deep cleans and deodourizes in one step without the need for chemicals to remove stains and if that’s not enough it kills germs, bacteria and even dust mites. The risk of surface damage and surface degradation is reduced with steam cleaning systems and it is 100% safe for the external surfaces of cars too.
The streak-free and quick drying benefits leave your car with enhanced visual cleanliness, giving it that new-car appearance at every wash.
