How Steam Cleaning Prevents MRSA Outbreaks and Infections in Hospitals

Within hospitals viral and bacterial infections generally spread via staff, patients and inanimate contact objects. While there are detailed precautions measures in place to prevent the infection and MRSA outbreak to spread from staff and patients; current cleaning practices are very reactive. Hospitals need to incorporate modern and versatile cleaning technologies such as dry steam vapour cleaning into their daily cleaning regimes.
