SaniGLAZE Sustainability

 

The SaniGlaze process offers an eco-friendly tile flooring option that makes your tile surface last longer and eliminates the need for complete tile and grout replacement.

 

Contributes to Green Building Certification

A fundamental green building concept is utilizing a structure’s existing resources instead of hauling everything off to the landfill and starting over. The unique SaniGlaze restorative bonding technology completely refurbishes existing ceramic tile surfaces to like-new condition with minimal environmental impact, providing you with eco-friendly tile flooring. Contact us for specific information on SaniGlaze's contribution to LEED® or Green Globes certification.

 

New Tile & Grout Without Replacement

Unlike carpeting and even hardwood, ceramic tile doesn’t wear out. It’s the porous grout that needs refurbishment, causing the possible need for complete tile and grout replacement. The SaniGlaze system can make any ceramic tile surface look just as good as the day it was installed and keep it that way. There is no need to spend time and money on the dusty job of complete tile and grout replacement when a simple SaniGlaze procedure can achieve the same results at a fraction of the cost with substantially less impact on the environment.

 

Uses Environmentally Friendly Cleaning Materials

Until SaniGlaze was developed, aggressive chemicals like acids, high-pH butyls, and bleach were required to deal with unsightly tile and grout. Once the SaniGlaze process is performed, harsh chemicals are no longer necessary. For everyday maintenance, "green" products are all that you need to keep your SaniGlaze surfaces clean.

 

Eliminates Mold & Mildew

Moisture is the most common element that allows mold and mildew to develop and breed in tile and grout. So controlling moisture is one of the best ways to help eliminate it. Independent laboratory tests confirm that SaniGlaze restorative bonding technology creates a non-porous protective surface that prohibits moisture and contaminant absorption, which reduces your risk of mold and mildew growth.

Sustainability initiatives such as LEED, Green Globes and most others place a high premium on mold and mildew control. LEED for Schools awards a credit point specifically for mold and mildew control procedures. But even if the building owner is not seeking any formal certification, there is a general peace of mind in knowing that surfaces protected by SaniGlaze’s restorative bonding do not support the growth and development of mold and mildew.

 

Improves Indoor Air Quality

The sustainable office is maintained with products that contain low or no VOCs, and the SaniGlaze maintenance program (featuring EverGlaze ceramic tile cleaner) is part of this new and healthier environment. Even the public restrooms take on a clean, odorless appearance when properly maintained with a SaniGlaze restoration and an EverGlaze Maintenance Program.
