  • Prevent the Spread of Infection: SANITIZE 220 protects against the spread of Healthcare-Associated Infections by reducing the bioburden on mobility equipment

Ft Lauderdale, FL – 3/19/20: As part of our commitment to safety, our team is closely monitoring developments from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and we are taking appropriate precautions to protect the health and safety of our employees, customers, and in facilities we service.

“According to our research, wheelchairs constitute a reservoir for various bacteria and a means of spreading them. We developed our STEAM 220 PROCESS to sanitize mobility equipment based upon scientific studies. The number of bacteria living on a surface is decreased by more than 90%.” said Vincent Baratta, COO.

Clinical studies demonstrate that wheelchairs are contaminated with several pathogenic bacteria such as MRSA, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Acinetobacter baumanni, staphylococcus aureus, pseudomonas aeruginosa, and E. coli. To reduce bioburden on mobility equipment, it is essential and important to have this equipment sanitized frequently.

“Wheelchair and scooters are the most frequently used pieces of equipment which help seniors and the disabled get around to enjoy life. We are offering mobility impaired individuals a free sanitizing with our STEAM 220 PROCESS as a community service during these troubled times. Just come to our showroom with your wheelchair or scooter.” said Vincent Baratta, COO.

To get your wheelchair sanitized by Mobility City with dry steam vapor, contact the location nearest you for a schedule of free sanitizing days.


One hundred percent woman owned, Mobility City is the only national company using steam vapor for sanitizing and cleaning mobility equipment. With 18 locations in 15 states and growing, Mobility City Technicians use the same STEAM 220 PROCESS at senior communities, assisted livings, and hospitals to professionally sanitize mobility products. In addition, Mobility City repairs, rents and sells most mobility products including wheelchairs, power chairs, mobility scooters, lift out chairs, and hospital beds.
