“Being attentive to the state of our environment one day a year is like offering a bandage to someone who’s bleeding to death.” This bold statement is from the heart and soul of the Hamilton based Intersteam Technologies - General Manager Manfred Dietrich. The Intersteam Team believes that Earth Day is a great awareness event. However, they like to make every day about the earth - promoting Chemical Free Cleaning and Disinfection equipment to commercial and industrial clients. Since 1997 that’s what Intersteam has been recommending to hospitality, foodservice, healthcare and commercial companies.

The 2010 Truly Green and Clean Awards recognize people who have made a commitment to the ultimate green cleaning, for their customers, their staff and their environment, through the use of steam, the most environmentally responsible, chemical-free, and safe cleaning option.

This year there are 4 award recipients:
• First is our Major Award to the Whole Team at TDL Group in Oakville, who have been supportive of the 800 Tim Hortons Owner/Operators who choose steam for cleaning their ovens and washrooms.
• Second is Shoppers Home Health Care - LTC Divisions across Ontario and Vancouver who provide the ultimate mobility aid cleaning service, prolonging the life of the equipment and the safety of their clients.
• Third is Hamilton Health Sciences, who has been implementing the use of steam in their patient rooms for deep cleaning.
• Fourth is George Brown College, where Anthony Scarlato’s team has embraced the use of steam in their classrooms, washrooms and public areas.
