Innosanitation - The Wave Of The Future, Part 13

Updated on March 20, 2011

1. First ensure that your wood floors are definitely sealed directly from the manufacturer. If there are any spots or areas on the wood flooring which have had their coatings worn right off do not use dry steam vapor devices on these areas. The water moisture can seep directly into the wood material and cause it to stain and warp.

2. Prior to starting your steam clean procedure remove any grime, dirt, dust and grit from the wooden floor through microfiber cloth methods. The presence of abrasive particulates on wooden flooring is the leading cause of scratches which can permanently damage the floor material.

3. Many dry steam vapor devices are engineered to use water alone and those are the preferred processes to achieve Innosanitation cleaning. The efficiency of dry steam vapor does not generally require any additional chemics.

4. Fill the dry steam vapor applicator's water canister with hot tap water at the temperature required by your owner's manual.

5. Ensure your canister filled to the manufacturer's required level.

6. Place your canister into an accessible position and begin heating the water to steam

7. Begin at one corner and work from one side of the flooring to the other, avoiding walking on the newly steamed surfaces.

8. The cleaning stroke process is as follows: Push the device forward to release the steam, then pull it back towards you to allow the cleaning pad to remove dirt and grime through a wiping action.

9. Continue the procedure until the entire floor area has been cleaned.


Restrooms are generally the most difficult areas to keep clean as an extremely elevated level of hygiene is called for and the frequency of cleaning must be kept up at a very high level. Innosanitation cleaning technologies offer a variety of methods which not only match the conventional and traditional chemic-based processes but can actually exceed their efficiency and ease of application.

One of the primary and most innovative Innosanitation cleaning technologies which can be implemented in restroom sanitation is UV-C light. The levels of UV-C radiance required to achieve elevated levels of hygiene on all restroom surfaces facing the light can be too intense to allow exposure to unshielded humans (particularly concerning eye protection). However, it is becoming commonplace in Europe to have motion sensors fitted to high intensity UV-C lights in particularly troublesome tiled sanitation areas such as restrooms. Once the occupants have left the restroom, the motion sensor activates the high intensity UV-C lights placed in the ceiling, which serve to sanitize the hard tiled and fixtured areas of the restroom until the next occupant enters, and then the lights automatically shut off.

UV-C is highly effective in sanitation procedures on surfaces which are already relatively unsoiled by solids, but when the actual area is coated in a opaque waste or spill substance, the UV-C radiance can only sanitize the very top layer of molecules. Solids and other soils such as grease, grime, and layers of dirt must be removed from restroom surfaces before UV-C light can effectively sanitize them.
