We are Completely Steaming and we are on a mission to rid the Wairarapa of nasty chemicals with our newfangled steam weeding machine. It uses high pressure steam to do everything round up does, with the added bonus that it’s safe around waterways and where children and animals play. Steam has no lasting negative ecological impacts, so safe for bees, butterflies and other little critters.
Alfresco Cleaning with Steam
Not only does our machine smash weeds it also obliterates grime and kills spores. If you need an effective, safe way to rid yourself of grimy BBQ’s, slimy decks, mossy walls and unsightly roofs but don’t want any harmful residues, give us a call and see how we can make cleaning easy and safe with our steam machine.
Why use steam?
Our patented weedtechnics machine uses high pressured steam, heated to 120 degrees, to explode the cell membrane and kill the weed. Because we are only using water, there are no harmful residues so it’s kind to the microbes and soil organisms that are essential to life. High pressure nozzles effectively channel steam onto the crowns of the weeds but has little effect and no lasting impact on the roots of your perennial crop, trees or vines, as the steam does not penetrate more than about 5mm into the soil. This makes it ideal for gardens, orchards, public spaces, parks, around rivers and waterways, grass verges, golfing greens and sports fields as well as your driveway.
Alfresco Steam Cleaning
Our steam is a viable solution for cleaning filthy BBQ’s, greasy engines, mossy decks or patio areas, pathways, dirty walls or lichen on your roof. We can clean the exterior of your house by dialing down the heat or we can strip the paint right off if that’s what you need, as our steam machine can prep your wooden surface ready for painting, no chemicals required.
