Polti Cimex Eradicator
How do you use steam to eliminate viruses?
Dispense steam on a surface for 15 consecutive seconds.
What can I sanitize with steam?
Most surfaces can be treated with steam. It is advised to restrain from steaming electronics or other delicate surfaces as indicated in the product manual. We kindly ask users to always refer to the instruction manual before using a steamer.
Why use steam instead of disinfectants?
Steam reaches everywhere, is always available (relies on tap water), does not pollute the environment, and leaves no residue. Moreover, steam can also be used on fabrics without continually resorting to washing, or on textile surfaces that cannot be removed and changed.
Does steam replace other preventive measures?
No. All measures issued by health authorities must be scrupulously followed. Steam is an additional, effective, and versatile solution to kill and eliminate viruses from surfaces and fabrics for those who choose not to resort to chemicals, or in case of ascertained sensitivity/allergy to these products. Steam is also highly effective for use in environments and surfaces where only steam can reach (sofas, chairs, upholstered furniture, jackets and coats, mattresses, cushions, carpets, rugs, door handles, and many other places that are difficult to reach with other methods).
TESTS ON VIRUSES AND BACTERIA
Polti Cimex Eradicator is effective against the H1N1 virus
The Polti Cimex Eradicator has achieved excellent results against the H1N1 virus.
Evaluation of the virucidal effectiveness (H1N1) of the Polti Cimex Eradicator & HPMED Sani System Formula
Biolab Laboratory, Vimodrone (Milan), Italy
The virucidal effectiveness of the Polti Cimex Eradicator & HPMED was evaluated in accordance with European standard EN 14476 (Quantitative suspension test for the evaluation of virucidal activity in the medical area).
Based on the results obtained, in the experimental condition adopted, the product under consideration Polti Cimex Eradicator & HPMED - Formula Sani System causes a reduction greater than or equal to 4 Log (99.99%) against Human Influenza Type A (H1N1) after 15 seconds of time or contact.
Evaluation of inhalation toxicity
The product is not classified as dangerous according to the provisions of Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 (CLP) and subsequent amendments and adjustments.
Studies demonstrate the effectiveness of Polti Cimex Eradicator against bacteria and viruses
The effectiveness of the Polti Cimex Eradicator has been demonstrated by several laboratory tests.
The bacteria and fungi tested are responsible for various kinds of infection. They can be found frequently on household surfaces, in the filters of air-conditioning systems, in the drains of bathroom fixtures, on plants and even in water or in the soap.
The results obtained show that the Polti Cimex Eradicator is capable in just one minute of eliminating the bacterial and fungal loads on surfaces previously contaminated with these microorganisms.
Evaluation of the bactericidal activity of Polti Cimex Eradicator & HPMED
Cantonal Institute of Microbiology, Bellinzona, Switzerland
Sanitization with Polti Cimex Eradicator was found to be effective to reduce the bacterial load on a work surface previously contaminated with the following micro-organisms: Escherichia coli, coagulase-negative Staphylococcus, Klebsiella pneumoniae and Proteus mirabilis.
Evaluation of the bactericidal activity of the Polti Cimex Eradicator & HPMED system against methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)
Cantonal Institute of Microbiology, Bellinzona, Switzerland
The bactericidal activity of Polti Cimex Eradicator in respect of two strains of Methycillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) has been analyzed on different kinds of surfaces.
The use of Polti Cimex Eradicator for 30 seconds has proved to be effective in sanitizing different materials such as stainless steel and melamine table tops, with a reduction of the bacterial load by 4 logarithms, while on ceramic surfaces, a bacterial residue was found for the most resistant strain of MRSA.
Evaluation of antimicrobial activity in hospitals
Orthopaedics and Traumatology Unit and Microbiology Unit, San Carlo Borromeo Hospital, Milan, Italy
Polti Cimex Eradicator proved to act on several gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria and various types of fungi.
Its anti-microbial activity has been experienced on equipment, in rooms and on inert materials such as plastic, metal and glass. In standard operating conditions, sanitization carried out with Polti Cimex Eradicator lead to a reduction of the total microbial load by 91.6%, compared to 88.8% using conventional methods (chemical product).
Effectiveness of Polti Cimex Eradicator in reducing microbial load on inanimate surfaces
Swinburne University of Technology, Australia
A 30 seconds treatment with Polti Cimex Eradicator was effective in reducing the microbial load by 99,999% for representative Gram positive bacteria, Gram negative bacteria, filamentous fungi and yeasts.
A 30 seconds treatment with Polti Cimex Eradicator reduced the load of spores by 97%.
Polti Cimex Eradicator test on ambulances
Hospital of San Severo - ASL Foggia, Italy
The experimentation of Polti Cimex Eradicator in real context shows that it is a valid method for the disinfection of ambulances. It significantly reduces the total microbial load present on the surfaces.
- 4 bar max pressure
- Made in Italy
The dry, superheated steam of Cimex Eradicator kills 90% of bed bugs and 100% of eggs at the first passage. With HPMed it can also eliminate the typical smell of these insects. Its efficacy has been tested by Pest 2000 and PEST 3000
NO NEED FOR PESTICIDES: LOW ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT METHOD
Cimex Eradicator does not require the use of insecticides and the mixture of steam and HPMed can even be dispensed with people present.
At the end of operations, premises can be reused immediately.
EASY TO USE
Cimex Eradicator is easy to use and requires just a few targeted operations. The Complete Guide and the accompanying DVD are of practical help in finding the bedbugs and eliminating them effectively.
