Innosanitation - The Wave Of The Future, Part 5

Updated on March 20, 2011

HEPA Filter Vacuums

Allergy sufferers, looking to clean up the air in their home, should keep their eyes out for HEPA filter vacuum cleaners. HEPA is the industry standard for home air filtration. To be recognized as a HEPA filter, the unit must remove 99.97 percent of particles at least 0.3 microns in size: the size of pollen, mold and pet dander. HEPA filtration is more commonly found in canister style vacuums. HEPA vacuum cleaners can collect settled allergens and dust that don't get picked up by the air purifiers. By regularly vacuuming your home and particularly heavily carpeted areas, you can minimize the particles that may trigger allergy or asthma reactions. HEPA filter vacuums are even powerful enough to handle lead and asbestos, and the United States Post Office has used HEPA filter vacuums against anthrax.

Be careful about the distinction between true or absolute HEPA filters and those that are merely HEPA type or HEPA like filters. The real thing will have a serial number assigned to it, and test results will be printed on the outside of the filter. The test results should say that the filter caught at least 99.97 percent of particles at 0.3 microns. They will be more expensive, but they are worth it for the job they do in catching particles that other filters would just spit back out into your household. HEPA like filters will be similar to the real thing, but not as effective. You can decide on the level of filtration needed in your household and balance your needs with your budget. rates air purifiers and recommends them based on how quiet they are, expense, durability, smoke control, particulate count, germ, virus and mold control. There are many models of HEPA filter vacuums, including the Miele Callisto and other Miele models. Miele was the first company in the world to make a HEPA filter vacuum, and there are many more: try a search on Google shopping, and you'll see.

Innosanitation Cleaning Training

If you are considering implementing some of the revolutionary and truly innovative Innosanitation procedures in your workplace it will definitely take a bit of convincing for your colleagues to agree, but it can be done. It is possible to conduct Innosanitation cleaning janitorial training in conjunction with actual production to a certain degree. As long as training and production is clearly separated then the emphasis in each function will be allowed to stand out to the trainees. The emphasis on the training program is on knowledge, skill, and proficiency; while in the production program the emphasis is on the specific behaviors on the job.

Interaction between the training and the production sections is imperative, as procedures which are well defined will allow the "classroom" sessions to be reinforced by the actual performance of the task specified. Primary training goals include:

  • Behavior & skill evaluation
  • Behavior & skill instruction
  • Introduction to Innosanitation cleaning procedures
  • Short term development of skills

Ancillary training goals may include:

  • Behavioral troubleshooting
  • Advanced Innosanitation cleaning procedures
