STERIS Hints & Tips
Chamber Cleaning Services
Did you know that sterilizers need daily, weekly and annual cleaning? Regular cleanings can make a world of difference with a sterilizer. It takes a few minutes each day, and you need to do a little extra once a week and once a year, but if you are diligent, your sterilizer will look much better.
AORN recommends regular sterilizer chamber cleaning in its equipment maintenance supplement to ensure your sterilizer continues to perform to your expectations. Over time, substances accumulate on sterilizer chamber walls and can contaminate packs and hinder autoclave performance. STERIS's patented Sterilizer Chamber Cleaning System removes substances from chamber walls, without damaging the surface of your sterilizer. Our thoughtful process is environmentally safe. *Plus, it is compact and self-contained, so you don't have to shut down adjacent equipment during cleaning.
* Process is enclosed (except on floor loader or non-STERIS units with various door sizes). Acid and Alkaline are neutralized prior to disposal.

"The autoclaves look wonderful! Steve was very accommodating working with our schedule. The SP techs told me he was very pleasant, did his work without interfering with their work flow. Please let him know his efforts were truly appreciated. Thank you for also working with us and for sending the maintenance instructions. I forwarded them on to our SP techs. Please check with us in a year! Thanks again for everything!"
