Importance of commercial tile floor cleaning as well as residential cannot be overlooked. Failing to maintain and clean tile floors in commercial buildings lead to the accelerated depreciation of assets and real health compromises. Building managers and owners have begun to recognize also the costs that are the most difficult to quantify, such as lost productivity, relate directly to compromised cleaning and floor maintenance. Tile floor is only one part of the whole complex subject of indoor environmental quality.
Frequent cleaning, coupled with preventative maintenance greatly prolongs the impact of soil and dirt on tile floor appearance. While wear and tear have few indoor air quality implications, it does impact end-user attitudes toward tile as the floor covering of choice. In many commercial buildings and offices, indoor environmental quality is 5-10 times worse than that outside. The average person spends 90% of the time indoors. Indoor environmental quality is important for the following reasons:
• Allergic responses to dust and fungi substantially increase with declining indoor environmental quality.
• Absenteeism can be traced to poor indoor environmental quality.
• Respiratory impairment in children under five is linked to poor indoor environmental quality.
• In extreme circumstances, poor indoor environmental quality leads to decreased lung capacity and increased heart workload.
