Title: Fighting Covid 19 – The Power of Hot Water Cleaning & Sanitizing

Fighting Covid 19 The Power of Hot Water
Cleaning Sanitizing
  • There is no doubt that a greater emphasis than
    ever is being placed on sanitation. Covid 19 has
    changed the spectrum of what it means to clean
    and disinfect, forever. The everyday homeowner
    and business owner are now acutely aware, in ways
    they have never been forced to consider, the
    impact that a virus like Covid 19 can have on our
    everyday lives. Across industries, cleaning teams
    are being asked to clean more surfaces, with a
    greater emphasis on full sanitation, faster and
    more efficiently. Whether you are cleaning and
    sanitizing trash cans, compost bins, commercial
    dumpsters, and now shopping carts or you are
    pressure washing using hot water is the fastest
    and most efficient way to get the job done!

  • In partnership with the wfk Cleaning Technology
    Institute, Hydrotek conducted tests comparing hot
    and cold water pressure washing and found that
    across all applications, including trash cans and
    dumpsters, utilizing high temperature at 194
    facilitated a much faster cleaning time on
    average about 40. Hot water can be especially
    effective when grease or oils are present. On
    average, when an oil or fat is present, it is
    approximately four times more efficient to use
    hot water than it would be to use cold water.
    That translates into a cleaning time reduction of
    75. And for a bin cleaning company, that kind of
    efficiency cannot be ignored.

  • Take a moment to think about how many more
    garbage cans and dumpsters your bin washer can
    clean with high temperature. At Sparkling Bins,
    we offer steam cleaning heads for garbage cans
    and dumpsters that can go as high as 248. We
    have found that temperature at 230 is optimal
    for trash bins and dumpsters. How many more
    clients could you service with 40 (or 75) more
    time left in a day? This could leave you with
    more time to clean high-use areas or equipment
    more often or with the time to perform essential
    deep cleaning tasks.

  • In this fast-moving society, time is money. Using
    hot water also causes the surfaces you are
    cleaning to dry faster. In the event youre
    sanitizing trash bins using hot water, you will
    spend less time drying the trash bins, allowing
    you to sanitize more bins during the course of
    your daily routes. Faster drying also means that
    the equipment or items youve just washed are
    available to use sooner. If youre pressure
    washing an area such as a floor, the fact that
    they dry sooner reduces the risk that someone may
    slip and fall. The list of benefits of
    high-temperature cleaning goes on and on.

  • Next, lets talk a bit about hygiene, reducing
    bacteria and virus counts. To really impact
    bacteria any viruses, you must first clean and
    then sanitize. These are the necessary steps for
    cleaning trash cans, compost bins and dumpsters
    in order to stop the spread of germs. By now, we
    all know that viruses and bacteria can cause
    serious harm to both humans and animals. To
    prevent that from happening, surfaces must be
    truly clean first before the disinfecting step
    can be performed successfully.
  • Over the years, experts have learned that heat is
    a key factor in fighting germs and diseases. A
    study by the Thuringen State Office for
    Agriculture found that, while cleaning with cold
    water had no impact on bacteria count, raising
    the temperature to 140F reduced the number of
    bacterial colonies by 90. At 176F, bacterial
    colonies were reduced by 97 and at 311F they
    were eliminated entirely. If there was ever a
    case for cleaning at the right temperatures, this
    is it!

(Based on a study by the University of Georgia)
  • Current evidence suggests that the Novel
    Coronavirus may remain viable for many hours to
    multiple days on surfaces made from a variety of
    different materials. SARS-CoV-1, a strain that is
    very similar to the Novel Coronavirus that causes
    COVID-19, is known to become inactive at high
    heats, around 130F to 150F in a short amount of
    time. If you heat a material up to 130F, which
    is the high setting on a dryer or a very low oven
    setting, you only need about 20 minutes to kill
    greater than 99.99 of the virus, said Glenn.
    If youre heating up to 150F or higher, then
    you only need about five minutes to kill greater
    than 99.99. Without a doubt, cleaning of
    visibly dirty surfaces followed by disinfection
    is a best practice measure for the prevention of
    COVID-19 and other viral respiratory illnesses in
    both households and community settings.

  • Finally, using high temperature hot water when
    sanitizing trash bins, compost bins and dumpsters
    is important to a bin cleaning and pressure
    washing business owner because increases your
    efficiency in three main ways
  • Water Use  Because hot water reduces cleaning
    time, less water is required. We can translate
    the time savings into resource savings as well.
    For example, for every 264 gallons of water
    required for cold water cleaning, a hot water
    cleaner will save at least 106 gallons!

  • Shorter Cleaning Time  Using hot water at a
    temperature rating at 230, with Sparkling Bins
    steam heads, will create overall shorter cleaning
    times. This will allow you to add more trash bins
    to your route without having to increase labor
    hours. This translates into more clients and and
    an increase in revenue without spending a dime
    more in labor pay!
  • Chemicals  In most cases, hot water will reduce
    or eliminate the need for chemicals because the
    heat is sufficient in killing bacteria and
    removing the dirt. Using less chemicals is not
    only better for the environment, but having to
    use less chemicals will save your bin business

  • While Sparkling Bins, and the companies we put in
    business, have always focused on the benefits of
    cleaning and sanitizing prior to this current
    pandemic, COVID 19 certainly shines a spotlight
    on all of the ways in which a bin cleaning and
    power washing business provides a vital service
    to the public and private sectors. Using
    Sparkling Bins equipment, with our specialized
    steam cleaning heads, will help you and your
    clients fight this virus and many others, keeping
    our communities safer and healthier every day!
