Steam Weeding

FPM is now offering Steam Weeding

Steam Weeding - What is it?

Steam weeding is the process of killing weeds using saturated steam

  • Water is heated to 98 – 103 degress Celsius
  • The steam is delivered at low pressure, but high volume
  • The heat causes the weeds cells to literally explode
  • Results are fast – hours, not days

Why is steam weeding better than traditional methods?

    Steam weeding means no exposure to harmful chemicals
  • Customers, employees and the general public are not exposed to herbicides
  • The only by-product is water
  • No withholding periods after spraying
