Innosanitation - The Wave Of The Future, Part 11

Updated on March 20, 2011

There are particular Innosanitation cleaning technologies and procedures which can specifically apply to each of these surfaces:


Tile can refer to a wide variety of flooring types and materials which include but are not limited to:

  • Ceramic
  • Concrete
  • Engineered
  • Granite
  • Marble
  • Porcelain
  • Slate
  • Terracotta
  • Terrazzo
  • Vinyl

These tile floor products vary widely in their durability, appearance, permeability, porosity and specific cleaning procedures. Generally it can be stated that they can be grouped under the heading of "hard non-organic floor products" thus they vary from the predominantly organic forms such as carpet and wood.

These types of floors are extremely well suited for Innosanitation cleaning procedures, as the janitorial scrubbers have been tested and proven to achieve high levels of sanitation and cleanliness on tile flooring. The janitorial scrubbers are extremely adept at cleaning large areas, preferably with a minimum of fixed obstacles, and can achieve extremely elevated dirt removal levels which toxic chemic scrubbers cannot hope to match. When janitorial personnel are first introduced to the concept of floor stripping with an Innosanitation water device, they usually cannot believe that it is possible. The majority are generally convinced of its high level of efficacy in removing months or even years of chemic and dirt build up on a surface after their first demonstration, as janitorial scrubbers are phenomenally effective!

Unlike the stone and mineral based flooring tile types, some laminate, linoleum, or vinyl tile flooring products may be sensitive to high levels of UV-C radiance over an extended period of time. To ensure that the tile product does not become faded or stained by the UV-C light, the manufacturer must be consulted before applying this Innosanitation cleaning technology to these types of flooring materials.

Tile floors are also well suited to dry steam vapor Innosanitation cleaning, as the high pressure, high temperature steam serves to blast away grit and grime that can accumulate on tile floors especially in corners or in close proximity to baseboards and under small overhangs such as radiator fixtures.

A highly specialized form of Innosanitation floor cleaning which is specifically engineered for heavy duty industrial locations is dry ice blasting. This method is best suited to the strongly resistant floorings such as concrete which bear the extremely elevated volumes, consistencies and greases found in the industrial sector. These dry ice blasters utilize a solid form of gas which is in the form of tiny pellets when it is ejected under extremely high pressures from the applicator wand. There is no water involved in this process, thus when the specialized non-toxic gas which has been frozen to dry ice form hits the surface it swiftly reverts back to its natural gaseous form. At no time is the surface wetted by water, thus there is no drying time needed. Note that dry ice blasting is also effective in removing paint from concrete flooring and unless it is an intended result, it can severely damage the painted covering of a concrete floor.
