Innosanitation - The Wave Of The Future, Part 14

Updated on March 20, 2011

 The preferred method for Innosanitation cleaning of restroom surfaces is dry steam, for very similar reasons as to why it is recommended in hard tile flooring applications. Since the surfaces of restrooms are generally as hard, inert, and impermeable as mineral tile flooring, it reacts equally well to the various dry steam vapor methods. Another advantage of dry steam vapor applications in restroom cleaning is that the power of the high pressure steam can blast away encrusted grime and wastes without scrubbing, and the applicator wand can easily extend to areas that are very difficult to reach such as behind toilet bowls and underneath plumbing fixtures. Dry steam vapor applicators can also eliminate the need for toilet bowl chemics and scrubbers, as the steam can clean the interior of the bowls with even greater efficiency than scrubbing. Janitorial staff will appreciate being able to keep an applicator wand's length away from one of the most menial and unpleasant tasks in the cleaning checklist.

Innosanitation procedures can also be extremely effective in the sanitation of specific touch surfaces such as taps, towel dispensers, hot air hand driers, and toilet paper roll holders. These technologies can also be sprayed into the air to eliminate odors. Various HEPA HVAC filtration mechanisms can also be considered to be highly effective in keeping restroom areas smelling fresh.


Commercial kitchens present very specific and stubborn challenges to conventional chemic cleaning, and the same applies to Innosanitation cleaning. The primary problem confronted by kitchen janitorial staff is the volume, type, and distribution of the dirt, grease, and grime which is present in a commercial kitchen environment to a far greater degree than most other areas in a public building.

Almost all commercial kitchens are involved in various types of frying, and the vaporized microscopic oil particles are carried by the local airflow to coat virtually every surface. The extent of this coating can be extreme and small out of easy reach areas which are coated in layers of this grimy dirt which can be fractions of an inch thick or more can be found in the vast majority of commercial kitchens. Conventional chemic cleaning generally cannot be applied to areas that cannot be reached by a human hand, so dry steam vapor becomes not just the most efficient Innosanitation cleaning process, but the most effective way to clean all sections of a commercial kitchen.

The dirt blasting power of the dry steam vapor combined with the elongated wand's easy access to areas which could only be reached by hand after partial dismantling of kitchen equipment, makes this Innosanitation cleaning process the preferred one for commercial kitchen sanitation.

Dry steam vapor is extremely effective on:

  • Grease traps
  • Sinks
  • Prep areas
  • Hoods
  • Rubber drainage mats
  • Partitions
  • Walls
  • NSF surfaces

Filters and appliances require special care when dry steam vapor is used to clean them. Some hood type filters are too fragile to survive the steam cleaning pressures, and some appliances can be damaged when exposed to the high heat and water content of dry steam cleaning.
