Steam disinfection refers to the use of high-temperature steam to kill or remove pathogenic microorganisms on the transmission medium to achieve harmless treatment.
It is understood that the evaluation of the disinfection effect of steam mops takes Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Aspergillus terreus, Aspergillus braziliani and other bacteria and viruses as the killing objects, and should meet the technical standard that the killing rate is not less than 99.9%. test. Therefore, whether the steam disinfection effect of different brands of steam mops can reach the standard of T/CPQS E0004-2020 "Evaluation Method for Disinfection Function of Steam Cleaning Products for Household and Similar Use" and the website claim indicators are the key comparison contents of this comparison test.
(1) Staphylococcus aureus
Staphylococcus aureus is widely found in nature, such as air, water, dust, and human and animal excrement, etc. It is the most common pathogenic bacteria in human purulent infections. It not only easily causes local purulent infection, but also may It can cause pneumonia, pseudomembranous colitis, pericarditis, etc., and even systemic infections such as sepsis and sepsis. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control reports that infections caused by Staphylococcus aureus are second only to Escherichia coli.
(2) Escherichia coli
Escherichia coli generally refers to Escherichia coli, which is a type of enterobacteriaceae. Under normal circumstances, most Escherichia coli are very quiet, not only will not cause any harm to people's health, but also competitively resist the attack of pathogenic bacteria, forming a mutually beneficial and symbiotic relationship with the human body. Only under special circumstances such as reduced immunity and long-term lack of stimulation in the intestines, these "good people" will make waves and migrate to places other than the intestines, such as the gallbladder, urethra, bladder, appendix, etc., resulting in corresponding parts. infection or systemic disseminated infection.
(3) Aspergillus (Aspergillus terreus and Aspergillus brasiliensis)
Aspergillus is a typical filamentous fungus, which mainly reproduces by spores scattered in the air, and has a strong reproductive ability. Aspergillus is more harmful to humans and can easily cause various infections in the eye area. Aspergillus is second only to Fusarium in fungal infections of the eye, accounting for about 10% of all eye infections. In the past, the medical community believed that this fungus mainly caused exogenous corneal infection and endophthalmitis. attention of the industry.
