Cleaning and disinfecting is the best way to remove germs from surfaces and to prevent illness from occurring in your facility. In any facility, the two main types of surfaces are hard and soft surfaces. Most EPA-registered disinfectants clearly state their ability to be used on “hard, nonporous surfaces.” This leaves many questioning how to disinfect soft surfaces. While some disinfecting chemicals have a claim for “soft surfaces,” this is actually a sanitizing claim.

There are many misconceptions about the meaning of “solids” and their role in floor finishes. It has been a longstanding belief that the quality of a floor finish is related to the amount or percentage of solids in a floor finish. This would mean all high solid floor finishes are high quality and will be the best choice. Another belief relates floor finishes with a higher percentage of solids to increased maintenance and cost. However, it is important to realize that innovation in floor finish manufacturing has allowed for advancements in floor finish chemistry which positively affects the ease of floor finish application and appearance. The percentage of solids in a finish no longer directly affects the quality, durability, cost, and other factors.
