How is the Special Mold & Mildew Resistant Outdoor Carpet Flooring maintained?

1. A professional carpet sanitizing machine is utilized regularly completely saturating the flooring with sanitizing solution. After treating the flooring with the solution, the machine then removes all the leftover solution and any soil.

2. Flooring is replaced Regularly.

3. OZONE* is used before and after every class which completely sanitizes the entire room.

For over 16 years we have  the air and surfaces with Ozone* after classes, maintained hand sanitizing/disinfecting stations throughout the school, along with routine deep cleaning with EPA-Certified Disinfectants.

4. Now, we have increased our safety and cleaning protocols even further. We have added NASA and FDA Certified medical devices that sanitize the air and surfaces (virus, bacteria, spores, mold, germs) while the yoga room is occupied and are safe for use in hospital Neonatal and Baby Rooms.

5. There is now an additional 4th layer of viral, bacterial, germ, mold, spore, sanitation occurring in the air, while you are present, that "sanitizes within 3 feet of a 100 mile an hour sneeze".    

6. The Lobby and Changing Rooms also utilize powerful purification devices that sanitize (virus, bacteria, germs, mold, spores) the air every 5-15 minutes.

7. Carpet has NO PAD & is virtually non existent as it is only about a 1/16 of an inch thick! Flooring is glued directly to concrete floor below and receives constant vacuuming and maintenance.

8. We utilize a HUGE fan to freshen up the room with outside air between classes.

9. We have added No-Touch Towel, Recycle, Trash Bins throughout studio.

10. Students use leak proof mats for every workout.
