New Milford, NJ (PRWEB) September 30, 2013
Any bus or train that gets constant use will get extremely dirty. Cleaning passenger compartments need more than just vacuuming and trash pickup. Seats, arm-rests, grab rails, windows, flooring and interior walls, all need to be cleaned and sanitized. The traditional method of cleaning had always been spraying with chemicals and wiping down surfaces. This was more labor intensive, less effective and left a chemical smell and residue.The Vapor Chief steam cleaner was brought in to perform the same tasks.
Time saving and more effective
With the vast number of seats on a train or bus, they need to all be cleaned of stains and surface dirt. The arm rests and head rests, as well, need to be cleaned. Conventional carpet extractors are too big to even fit on a train or bus, as well as leaving seats too wet. Floors could not be cleaned with extraction as they are a harder and grooved surface. So steam cleaning was the answer. By cleaning the seats with steam, the process is far more effective and time saving. Seats dry almost instantly and the flooring can also be cleaned with steam. Windows, window channels, arm rests and side panels were also steam cleaned. The intense, hot vapor, from the vapor chief steam cleaner made fast work of the dirty trains and buses.
Portability was the key
The small compact size of the powerful vapor chief allows it to be carried on and off buses and trains and go from car to car and bus to bus. The long 13 foot hose on the vapor chief allows easy access to all small areas that a conventional carpet extractor could not get into. The maintenance crews love the steamer and it makes the job easier. It removes stains from seats, chewing gum from arm rests and the floor, and sanitizes all the hard and metal surfaces as they are being cleaned. Being that the machine is continuous fill, the crew does not have to worry about the steamer running dry and having down time. Water can be filled into a non pressurized tank on the unit and it’s automatically pumped into the boiler when needed. Therefore, a large boiler and large body were not needed. This allows the workers to easily carry the vapor chief up a few steps to get on to a bus or a train car. Once it’s aboard, it’s simply rolled around and moved up and down aisles.
Other cleaning uses found
Of course, once the maintenance crew found how proficient the vapor chief was in cleaning a bus or a train, they soon brought the steamer into bathrooms and found it to be far more effective on sinks, toilets, stalls, and the tiles in all public restrooms. Cleaning a bathroom is now faster and more effective than ever with the Vapor Chief Commercial Steam Cleaner.
