Innosanitation - The Wave Of The Future, Part 12

Updated on March 20, 2011


There are virtually countless numbers of different types of carpeting, ranging from extremely expensive and delicate Persian rugs to astroturf type of floor coverings which can cost as little as a couple of dollars per square yard. Many of our household and commercial structures are fitted with various areas boasting wall to wall carpeting which is solidly installed right to the floors and the baseboards to ensure that it doesn't slip or fold causing a tripping hazard. The specific requirements of these different types of fabric floor coverings (from the cheapest commercial carpet to the most precious silk wall hanging rug) vary considerably in conventional cleaning, thus they can be expected to be similarly varied in the various Innosanitation cleaning processes engineered to clean them properly.

The hardier types of carpeting such as the indoor / outdoor forms and the synthetic lawn materials can be essentially treated in a similar manner to the hard floor coverings such as tile. Although it is not recommended to clean these carpeting types with janitorial scrubbers, there are elements of Innosanitation cleaning technology which can be readily applied to these sturdier forms of fabric floor coverings. The preferred form of cleaning for these resistant synthetic carpets is dry steam vapor as that technique has been proven to loosen stubborn ground in dirt and grime and just power it away. The synthetic carpets have a tendency of drying quickly, so the small bit of residual water that is left over at the end of the steam cleaning process swiftly evaporates, leaving the surface clean, dry, and ready for traffic within minutes.

The more fragile and delicate types of carpets may be damaged by utilizing the improper form of Innosanitation cleaning. The less resistant forms of carpeting such as wool, silk, rayon, and cotton should be carefully evaluated prior to any cleaning. It is advised that the carpet manufacturer be consulted in order to implement their recommended form of Innosanitation cleaning. It is further advised that expensive hand-knotted rugs only be cleaned by certified specialists as they can easily be damaged by any form of cleaning process.

Wooden Floor

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

  • Amendoim
  • Birch
  • Cherry
  • Distressed
  • Domestic
  • Exotic
  • Hand Scraped
  • Hickory
  • Laminated
  • Mahogany
  • Oak
  • Pecan
  • Red Maple
  • Red Oak
  • Smooth
  • Timboran
  • Walnut
  • Wire Brush

Many of these types of wood and wooden-derived flooring materials have incorporated an elevated level of water and moisture resistance. Therefore, these are safe to use with any Innosanitation cleaning process. Dry steam vapor removes grime, grease, dirt, food particles, and microscopic allergens and pathogens from wood material flooring with greater efficiency than traditional non Innosanitation cleaning methods.

Most sealed wood flooring is best suited to dry steam vapor and there are some specific procedures which should be followed when utilizing this Innosanitation cleaning process on these types of organic floor materials.
