Dry Vapor Steam cleaning, a truly “Green” cleaning process has been adopted by Slip-Less Services as its contribution to providing an eco-friendly service, chemical-free. Using nature’s most abundant solvent, water, is superheated to 300°+ in a stainless steel boiler, transforming 95% of the water molecules into smaller vapor molecules which penetrate the micro-pores of surfaces using 75+ psi to clean, sanitize, deodorize and disinfect in one efficient and effective step. The reduced use of water, 1 liter per hour, brings the added dimension of cleaning interior spaces sensitive to overwatering, and results in the elimination of dumping hazardous waste down drains. Persons with allergies or chemical sensitivities welcome this “new” technology and embrace the sanitization feature it offers to industrial, commercial and residential buildings.
Allentown, Pennsylvania – 6/01/2012
Slip-Less Services is a Pennsylvania based company in the business of providing slip-resistant solutions to public spaces with hard surface floors and shower/tubs that are slippery when wet. The solution is a water-based biodegradable formula that, unlike coatings and sealants, will not alter the appearance or affect the cleaning regime of the surface. It reacts within the micro-pores of the surface being treated and when the surface is wet will allow improved traction, even greater than when it was dry. The surface must be clean, not just wiped with sanitizer, in order for the treatment to perform to its maximum degree. In order to clean to that degree we have adopted the Dry Vapor Steam cleaning process which breaks down the biofilm layer present on every surface and allows it to be deep cleaned. This process has exponentially improved the efficacy of the cleaning regime and provides a means to additionally sanitize, disinfect and deodorize in one easy step. The biofilm layers, which contain microbial bacteria and germs feeding and re-populating all the time, require super high temperatures to expose the living organisms inside which are eradicated by the extreme heat. Anything short of a complete kill, using cleaning chemicals, will foster the survival of the stronger organisms which will re-populate and produce more resistant strains. The cycle continues by developing stronger chemicals you get more resistant organisms and thus greater exposure to toxic formulations. The Dry Vapor Steam cleaning can be used on large and small surfaces, on water intolerant spaces, those hard to reach cracks and crevices, on mattresses to kill bed bugs, on pillows to kill dust mites, on grout and tile floors and baths, etc…
It became necessary to find an efficient and effective way to deep clean since old school methods left layers of biofilm on the flooring surface and were impossible to penetrate. The answer was Dry Steam Vapor cleaning. It eliminated a source for a continuous water supply, a means by which to extract the water, the need for an MSDS sheet and a menu of chemicals. The process is fast and delivers a level of deep cleaning like no other. The cleaning procedure has drawn the attention of property owners and customers alike, inquiring as to the nature of the technology and the benefits thereof prompting the launch of the Dry Vapor Steam cleaning and equipment sales business. Demonstrations and training is provided in order to immerse and orient property owners to all the possibilities of owning this versatile equipment. Portable and easy to maneuver, these machines can safely traverse airplane cabins, recreational vehicles, boats and car interiors. There are specific and numerous attachments and brushes designed to address the abundance of uses for this device. It is clear that every facility has a use for and can benefit from Dry Vapor Steam cleaning.

Dry Vapor Steam has made it possible to reduce the amount of water used in a cleaning regime, and the disposal thereof. The partner in the process is a microfiber towel which serves as the element that actually holds the contaminants within its fibers and is replaced with a new towel when it’s saturated. The microfiber towel can hold 8x its weight in liquid and be rewashed up to 500x, making it a reusable resource and therefore “green”. The machine is safe to use as steam will dissipate over distance, so at 6” away from the tip it is actually cool. The 5% vapor will also evaporate on a surface seconds after applied so there is no waiting to dry, business can be conducted as usual during the process. Car detailers have found it useful cleaning the interior of vehicles as it leaves the surface relatively dry and ready to return to the customer, rather than having them wait. It has spun off a mobile car detailing industry unrestricted by water usage regulations in drought areas. Pest control businesses have embraced the killing power and dry nature of the machine for eradicating bedbugs in mattresses and surrounding areas where they hide after having eaten. Schools have introduced the technology into their sanitizing regime in bathrooms and even desks, where unwashed hands cross contaminate to other children and teachers. Hospitals, nursing homes, senior care and child care all have sanitization and disinfection procedures and find that Dry Vapor Steam to be of significant value when it comes to aiding in this battle of the superbug. Chewing gum removal from walkways has proven to be beneficial to amusement parks, movie theatres and playgrounds. As an air freshener, Dry Vapor Steam will eliminate odors like smoke as well as clean the walls, floors and ceilings of the tar residue left behind by an old tenant in an apartment rental or a guest in a hotel. Smoking rooms will also be refreshed.
Slip-Less Services remains on the front line of researching the latest technology and equipment that best serves its customers and respects the environment. Our consultative sales will help you better understand the problem you might not be aware you have and offer solutions using Dry Vapor Steam.
Our goal is to clean “beyond what the eye can see”. Just because it looks clean and smells clean, doesn’t mean it is clean. Our senses have been trained to believe not only what we see but what we smell. If our nose sends the familiar scent of cleaning chemicals to our brain, our brain interprets this as being clean or just having been cleaned. It is time we retrain our brain into accepting that a refreshed environment, as what Dry Vapor Steam offers, is a clean environment. Save on chemicals, reduce overuse…steam clean.
