MBCR Introduces New Sanitizing Steam Cleaning System
Vapor cleaning removes stains and grime, protects environment
Boston – To ensure the cleanest possible riding environment for its customers, Massachusetts Bay Commuter Railroad Company (MBCR) today announced the introduction of a new vapor sanitizing system to clean passenger coaches. This system safely removes grease, grime and stains in a cost-effective manner without harming the environment.
“A sanitary, comfortable passenger coach is an essential part of a commuter’s experience,” said Richard A. Davey, general manager of MBCR. “The introduction of Advanced Vapor Technologies'' proprietary steam vapor cleaning equipment into service will help us provide cleaner, fresher coaches for passengers during travel.”
By using AVT’s Mondo-VAP 2400 system, MBCR is able to utilize vapor cleaning technology, which eliminates bacteria, while using tap water. The cost effective system removes everything from old gum to stains that previously were impossible to remove. The system works on a wide range of materials, including vinyl, stainless steel, and plastic-type surfaces.
