The need to clean wheelchairs was often overlooked in busy healthcare establishments and nursing homes. While there was great emphasis on cleaning and sterilizing doctors' instruments, cleaning of wheelchairs, stretchers, and similar equipment for patient mobility was somehow ignored. Things are changing now, and the conventional, laborious, time consuming method of manually cleaning each wheelchair has been replaced by wheelchair cleaning machines.
Wheelchair cleaning machines are of many types, but by far the best is a high pressure, high temperature machine with low water consumption. A commercial use steam pressure washer fits the bill perfectly. Considering the hospital environment and the cleaning requirements, perhaps no other machine works as well as a pressure washer similar to Daimer®'s Super Max™ 7000. Here are some of the reasons why this wheelchair cleaning machine is something you cannot do without in a hospital or nursing home.
Hospitals and patient care equipment need perfect sanitation. One of the best ways to ensure good sanitation is to use hot water for cleaning equipment. Boiling in hot water may have given way to autoclave machines as far as doctors' instruments are concerned, but there are other types of instruments that require a thorough hot water washing to remove body oils, grease, and other impurities coating their surface.
High temperatures, up to 330°F, are very suitable for cleaning patient care equipment in hospitals. Wheelchair cleaning machines also offer the choice of three temperature settings: steam, hot water, and non-heated water. Choose the temperature according to your cleaning requirements. These machines reduce downtime by heating water in just a few seconds.
The Super Max™ 7000 has a flow rate of 2.5 GPM, as opposed to 5 GPM in bigger industrial steam pressure washers. These steam pressure washers are built to last the rigors of high-powered pressure washing, and they have the right water usage rate to make them fit for commercial use. In commercial areas, the less water used, the better it is from a financial and environment point of view. Since wheelchair cleaning equipment is generally used indoors, and since steam pressure washer machines generate water, the cleaning will need to be performed outside the facility. The Super Max™ 7000, used as a wheelchair cleaning equipment with does offer a moderate water consumption rate, but it will clean chairs very quickly.
Emissions are a problem because they pollute the air. In indoor areas, particularly hospitals, emissions could prove to be dangerous. The Super Max™ 7000 electric powered pressure washer, is electricity powered and propane heated, and is safe for outdoor use. The system should not be used within a health care building unless it is approved by safety personnel. The electric powered pressure washer with propane heating uses an electric motor.
Hospitals and nursing homes can both use a propane powered pressure washer with propane heating. This is another steam pressure washer with high temperature range. Wheelchair cleaning equipment that generates hot water and wet steam is superbly suited for cleaning wheel chairs.
