Steam Weeding

ARE YOUR CHILDREN AT RISK?

How do you solve keeping your playgrounds looking well-presented with the increasing knowledge and concern that parents have about herbicides being used?

No doubt you’re concerned as well; having heard about the danger to staff, children and run-off to the local ecosystem. It can be used to regularly sanitise play equipment; clean slippery paths and grimy surfaces; as well as weeding, when you see weeds.

CHEMICAL RESIDUALS AND HEALTH ISSUES

There is reason to be concerned. The residual for Glyphosate or ‘Round-up’ is still 50% at 23 days* . More for some other chemicals. Glyphosate is recorded to have these health issues*:

  • Possible bladder and liver toxicant
  • May cause serious eye damage
  • Endocrine issues
  • Disruption of aromatase activity
  • Skin irritant, eye irritant

WHERE DO CHILDREN PLAY?

Chemicals end up where children play.

Most herbicides are used where up to 50% falls onto hard surfaces such as bitumen & concrete. They can flow to untreated areas, where children play; into soil or to waterways as runoff.

Many councils have switched to Saturated Steam weeding outside schools and pre-schools, as a safe alternative to chemicals. You can use it at your centre or school too.

NO GLYPHOSATE NO NOTIFICATIONS

Without toxic chemicals there is no need for licensed operators in suits; or requirements for notifications about herbicide use.
