Lg: the success of using steam in appliances


Lg uses the steam power for many of its home appliances such as dryers, dishwashers and LG Styler. All the popular LG appliances employ steam to clean by killing harmful bacteria or odors that permeate our clothes and our homes. The solution to remove such threats as allergens and bacteria is high-temperature steam from pure water. Though a temperature above 100°C (212°F) will kill bacteria.
TrueSteam™ is one of the most effective ways to kill germs. A steam generator in LG’s washing machine heats water to 100°C, making it hot enough to eliminate bacteria and even allergens from pet hairs, dead skin cells and mold. LG’s TrueSteam technology not only removes 99.9 percent of allergens but also the residue left by dead allergens.
Likewise, TrueSteam™ technology in LG’s dishwasher generates and emits pure steam to ensure hygienic cleaning and anti-bacterial disinfection of plates, utensils and glassware, eliminating any dangers of foodborne illnesses.
