The Retirement Home center for seniors, Elisabeth-Haus in Weibern (Rhineland-Palatinate), does not compromise on hygiene and relies on the particularly efficient way of cleaning with the innovative BlueEvolution Drysteam suction steam cleaning machines from Beam in Germany. This retirement village comprises of three living areas, 83 bedrooms and lots of cleaning challenges. The Blue Evolution S + multifunctional drysteam cleaning machine ensures top hygiene and sterility in all areas of the nursing home. This innovative machine not require cleaning agents, it works with hot dry steam and thus removes even the most stubborn dirt effortlessly. Another plus in practice: With the Drysteam suction machine from Beam (distributed in South Africa by https://www.drysteamsupreme.co.za) , the user saves up to 60 percent of the time that it would otherwise take using conventional cleaning methods.
In the past, the common rooms and residents rooms, as well as the sanitary areas and the kitchen of the Elisabeth Hays Retirement Home had to be laboriously cleaned with a rag, brush and bucket. The cleaning staff of the nursing home found this to be a problem: Because with conventional cleaning there was a risk that dirt and germs were not effectively being removed, but rather spread throughout the premises.
Fresh Room Environment
“Anyone who lives or works in an open-plan senior citizen Retirement Home Center knows that pathogens can quickly spread throughout the home. In order to protect the health of the residents, but also of the nursing staff, we must therefore make no compromises in terms of hygiene. So I am all the more pleased that we have found two optimum solutions for our high demands with the steam suction systems from Beam, “says Petra Hühmann, owner and manager of Elisabeth-Haus. “Above all, our employees enjoy the versatility of the steam suction systems when working with the Blue Evolution S +, because with this device, almost all surfaces in our facility can be cleaned quickly and easily.
The Elisabeth-Haus Retirement Home is based on the individual needs of its residents and offers next to 83 full-time rooms, including short-term, day and night care. The offer is rounded off with an outpatient nursing service, care advice, home nursing and meals on wheels. The senior center employs a total of 100 people.
Blue Evolution German Engineering
The Blue Evolution S + from Beam works at a pressure of 8.0 bar, creating a steam temperature of up to 170 degrees, eliminating even stubborn dirt with ease. For improved handling, it can be equipped with the optional and new power handle (see on the photo). This can be individually adjusted to the body size of the user. It is height-adjustable to a length of 30 cm and is suitable for both right and left-handers.
Beam’s steam suction concept is as simple as it is revolutionary: it vaporizes and soaks in one operation, saving users around 60 percent of the time needed to clean them. In addition, they are filled exclusively with water and operate without any chemicals. This not only protects the environment, but also the indoor climate. Another advantage in practice: Because the units work with hot dry steam, the surfaces are immediately completely dry again after the suction process. This reduces the risk of senior residents slipping and falling due to wet floors in Retirement Homes or Old Age Nursing homes.
Support for Professionals
Robert Wiedemann, Managing Director of beam GmbH, is particularly pleased about the positive feedback from Elisabeth-Haus Retirement Home. “More and more healthcare facilities are turning around and now rely on the natural way of cleaning with hot dry steam. For us, this is an absolute boom market. “With targeted training courses and demo schedules, Wiedemann and his team offer additional operationally valuable executives from the areas of cleaning and housekeeping as well as hygiene officers.

The Blue Evolution S + model (8.0 bar, 170 degrees Celsius) is ideal for Retirement Homes, Clinics, Hospitals, Hostels and other communcal residential areas that need to be kept clean and germ free.
The innovative Blue Evolution Dryssteam suction systems with robust stainless steel housing and the four freely moving castors ensure high flexibility and cleanliness – even in hard-to-reach places. Thanks to the large number of different top nozzles, the Blue-Evolution series of cleaners can also thoroughly clean a wide variety of surfaces. All models of the Blue Evolution series also have an additional hot water module for the toughest dirt and soiling.
As a special feature, Blue Evolution features a UV light underneath the waste tank that completely eliminates any remaining germs. The dissolved dirt particles end up in the water filter, where they get trapped in the water. The germs contained in the dirty water are killed by the patented UV blue light. This way, the air is also efficiently cleaned with every suction process.
