Commercial Steam Cleaning

Commercial steam cleaning is a growing service, and one that most businesses do not want to do themselves. Many businesses take care of the daily and routine cleaning in-house. Successful commercial cleaning takes specialized equipment, training and time that many businesses do not have. Fortunately, for new and experienced entrepreneurs, this can create an opportunity. There are an endless number of commercial applications that are best cleaned with steam.

All steam cleaners are not built for the high demands and the diverse needs of the commercial and industrial markets. High-temperature steam will break down the grease, eliminate odors and kill harmful bacteria. A well-designed commercial steam cleaning machine with effective accessories and cleaning agents can make all the difference.

Applications, Opportunities and Surfaces

In the interiors and exteriors of all the commercial structures, with the right industrial steamer, you can clean almost anything. You can feel confident and prepared for any situation and stain that presents itself. There are many applications for you to steam clean.

Graffiti and Gum

Bathroom stalls and other surfaces in commercial buildings are invitations for graffiti and gum. This causes unsightly areas and does not reflect well on the business. Steam works to eliminate the graffiti stains and blast the gum from the surfaces. You have just solved a problem.

Kill Bed Bugs

Bed bugs are a problem in pockets in the Unites States. Steam is an effective and chemical-free solution. Using an industrial steam cleaner with steam above 160 degrees will kill bed bugs and their eggs. The penetrating steam goes beneath the surfaces to eradicate the pests and eliminate the problem.

Automotive Grease

Even though car dealerships try to keep the showroom clean from the grease from the garage, it is not always possible. Technicians and mechanics need to pass through common areas. As they do, the grease stains from their shoes can easily transmit to the office or showroom area. Using steam and an extractor if needed, will leave the floors clean as new.

If there are stubborn and ground in stains, there are safe and effective agents to add. Fortador’s line of steamers gives you the flexibility to add a cleaning agent when necessary.

Kitchen Cleaning and Sanitation

This can be a large market to provide steam cleaning to. Kitchens in restaurants, schools, food trucks and hotels all have needs for high quality cleaning and sanitation. E-coli, salmonella and listeria can start and grow on kitchen equipment including appliances, handles and food prep areas.

Using a commercial kitchen steam cleaner will take care of common food stains as well as the bacteria and contaminants. The high temperature and precise amount of moisture content of Fortador’s steamers are perfect for commercial kitchen cleaning. The steam efficiently makes its way between the cracks and crevices for effective cleaning and disinfecting.

You are also able to clean the floors and walls with a commercial steamer. Because Fortador’s steamers use minimal moisture, the area will safely dry quickly. Get cooking!

Public Restrooms

When you walk into a public restroom, you expect cleanliness and high standards. When these are not met, many people pass judgements on the business that extends beyond the bathroom walls. Using steam to sanitize and clean public restrooms is a great solution. You will be able to clean the entire bathroom including the fixtures, mirrors, hand dryers, walls, floor and ceiling. Your customers will not be disappointed.


Businesses of all types have carpeting. As it becomes soiled from traffic and spills, you can clean it. A commercial steam cleaner is one of the best solutions for this high-profile surface in a building. Using an extractor will remove the residual moisture so the foot traffic can resume.

Floors and Molding

Tile, grout, laminate, polymer and other flooring materials all get soiled. Dirt grinds into the pores which makes them hard to clean. Dirt gathers in corners and where the molding meets the flooring. You can use steam to pressure the dirt away and penetrate the cracks and crevices.

Upholstery is everywhere in commercial buildings. Many businesses have a customer seating area. Reception desks and office cubicle walls are also common. Fortador’s line of steamers have the ends and accessories to restore the fibers and make them look like new.

Wall Marks

As employees and customers carry items and scrape up against walls, they become marked up and stained. These black marks stand out and become unsightly. Use steam and potentially a brush end to remove these with a commercial steamer. You have the ability to clean the entire wall for a fresh look that dries fast.

Vinyl and Leather Seating

These types of materials can look dirty and warn if not maintained. Use your commercial steam cleaner to bring chairs and benches back to life. A steamer will remove all types of dirt including soil that accumulates from skin contact, and ink marks from pens in people’s pockets.


Commercial building operators struggle keeping glass clean. How many times have you seen streaky glass in doors and windows as you enter a business? Using steam is one of the most effective methods for cleaning glass.

Making one pass over the glass and then wiping with a microfiber cloth will keep the interior and exterior of windows impressively clean. We also carry a glass cleaner if you prefer.

Playground Stains and Marks

Children’s playgrounds get dirty and dusty from traffic and particles in the air. This build-up can cause the equipment to become unsafe. A steam cleaner is the perfect tool to clean this type of equipment. It will get in the corners to remove dirt and grime from the seams on the playscape. It will also double as a sanitizer, which is more important than ever.

Shipping Docks

Commercial buildings, including grocery stores, have shipping and receiving docks. There are internal and external drivers and loading crews that work on the docks. Building docks that handle food have important reasons for being clean and sanitized.

Steam cleaning is perfect to fully clean and sanitize shipping docks across a market. The loading bays, handles, doors and areas around each dock can effectively and efficiently be cleaned with steam. Keep things safe and moving!

Building Owner Insights

Many commercial building owners own multiple buildings. Some of these operations have their cleaning services centrally-coordinated; some leave the decision up to the individual building managers.

If you complete a cleaning job in one building, ask the site manager if there are other buildings under the same ownership. You now have a potential referral and an expanded opportunity.

Depending on the type of commercial building, some operators may have a regular cleaning service that provides standard and routine cleaning. There are opportunities to provide the higher level of cleaning that steam can achieve. Sanitizing is also becoming more important to commercial buildings. Performing this higher level of cleaning monthly or quarterly are opportunities.

Greener, Fresher, Stronger

Tile and grout cleaning is an important but often overlooked area of cleaning that can easily harbor bacteria, mold and mildew problems. Grout can create harmful health effects if not cleaned properly as harmful microbes, dirt, grease, stains, and mold can accumulate inside, resulting in foul odors and deteriorating indoor air quality.  The dry vapor from the Fortador Steamers gently penetrates the pores releasing the dirt, grease and mold. High heat and pressure behind the vapor removes odors and stains while restoring the surface.Fortadors offers the most powerful commercial- grade steam equipment producing the highest steam temperatures for the most efficient cleaning.
