We first became interested in steam as a method of cleaning when we experienced a drought. Grant owned a busy paint and panel shop and had to find a way of cleaning his cars using a minimal amount of water. When we started using steam we were highly impressed - not only was it faster to clean but saved water and eliminated the cost of buying expensive chemical cleaners. We researched and trialled steamers from around the world and discovered Optima Steam - a dry steam machine which we consider to be the best on the market.
We believe steam is a superior professional cleaning method and provides a range of applications in different industries. As a result, we are committed to researching and developing new applications for dry steam technology. As members of the Chemical Free Community, we strive to provide a chemical-free cleaning alternative that has positive benefits for Australians and our natural environment.
