Steam biocleaning

Steam biocleaning: The solution for cleanliness and hygiene for the industries where these two factors are critical


Efficiency: detergency

DETERGENCE english version

High temperature (150°C) and high pressure (5 bars) steam provides infallible cleaning power.

The steam obtained, called neutral due to the absence of any mineral and devoid of any electrical conductivity, neutralizes static charges of dust formations. The steam acts as a gaseous substance. Its heat melts fats and eliminates all grime and filth.

Steam can easily access even the most inaccessible corners in order to eliminate dirt for a simpler, more efficient and lasting clean.

Steam eliminates dirt deposits and biofilms and allows for an excellent reconditioning of surfaces.

The use of microfibers with the accessories ensures a perfect elimination of all grime. Another possibility is to use a combined steam and vacuum-cleaning device to ensure elimination of grime.


Efficiency: Disinfection

The strong biocide action of the temperature of the steam also ensures excellent disinfection results that conform to European norms NF EN 14561: 2007, NF EN 15562: 2006, NF EN 14563: 2004 and norm NF T72- 281.




  • Bactericide > 5 logs reduction
  • Mycobactericide > 4 logs reduction
  • Virucide > 4 logs reduction
  • Yeasticide > 4 logs reduction
  • Sporicide > 3 logs reduction (Steam combined with 7.5% hydrogen peroxide solution)

The efficiency of SANIVAP’s steam cleaning method is recommended, published, and has undergone numerous verifications in laboratories and in-situ.


Simplicity and speed

The effect of the steam allows the detergence and disinfection of surfaces in one use. This combination saves time and increases the simplicity of biocleaning processes.

The steam cleaning method also reduces the frequency of certain cleaning tasks as surfaces dirty at a slower rate due to the steam cleaning.

Steam biocleaning alleviates tedious chores for personnel, allowing for better allocation of time and resources for other chores, as well as increasing personnel motivation.



The steam method does not require the use of detergent or disinfecting products, thus generating significant savings in cleaning and maintenance budgets. Water consumption is also greatly reduced. SANIVAP users carried out studies demonstrating significant economical gain.


Respecting the environment


The SANIVAP steam cleaning method corresponds to all the requirements of sustainable development. Firstly, this method requires no chemicals and reduces water consumption. Secondly, it eliminates all polluting emissions. It is a method that is 100% eco-friendly.

The SANIVAP method is, without a doubt, the method of the future due to its ability to reconcile efficient results with environmental respect.
