Adding a commercial floor buffer to your facility’s cleaning and maintenance program will increase worker productivity, improve cleaning results, and extend the life of your floor.
In many facility’s, periodic scrubbing, buffing, stripping, and cleaning of commercial floors are necessary to keep the floors looking great. Investing in the right commercial floor buffer will provide labor & time savings, increased cleaning results, and better machine reliability. Once you determine you need a floor buffer, you’re likely curious about how much one is going to cost you. Choosing which floor buffer is best for your facility may have a lot to do with price, but when evaluating the cost, you should consider what you’re going to get for the price of the floor buffer. Just picking the cheapest or most expensive floor buffer may not be the best option for your facility.
Vacuuming can represent between 15-25% of the total cleaning cost of your building. In most facilities, vacuuming is completed daily to remove abrasive soils and keep your facility looking great, but it also takes up a lot of your time and money. According to a study completed by the American Institute of Cleaning Sciences, the average commercial cleaning worker uses a vacuum for approximately 1-3 hours per day. With such a large amount of time and money spent on one cleaning procedure, it is critical that you are using the most efficient vacuum for each problem area. Utilizing the best vacuum in your facility can increase worker productivity, lower cleaning times, and reduce overall cleaning costs.
Abrasive soils are tracked through your facility every day, scratching and dulling your hard floors. A dull and dirty floor can hurt your business’ image and lead to increased customer complaints. It is important to the life and appearance of your resilient hard floor that you have a complete and practical floor care program including daily, periodic, and restorative maintenance procedures. Daily floor care is done every day. It includes the cheapest and least time-consuming cleaning procedures such as vacuuming, dust mopping, and damp mopping. Periodic floor care is done when traffic has caused a noticeable level of wear and tear on your floor finish. Scrubbing and recoating (sometimes referred to as shower scrubbing) is the best way to periodically maintain your hard, resilient flooring.
As a business that serves food, providing clean and spot free wares is critical to customer satisfaction. Over 80% of consumers say that dirty wares have a negative impact on their dining experience when eating out. Consumers associate spotty wares with dirt and carelessness, discouraging them from dining at the same place again. Providing your customers with the best dining experience means ensuring they will have spot free wares every time. Clean wares will help you retain customers and grow repeat business. But for some businesses, achieving those spot free wares can be a costly, time-consuming challenge.
Maintaining a clean facility is key to attracting and retaining tenants. When you continually have new and existing tenants and guests evaluating your facility, it is critical that every cleaning procedure is performed correctly to produce the best possible results. Every cleaning procedure, from restroom cleaning to restorative floor care, plays a significant role in ensuring your facility looks great. A clean facility is important to tenant and guest satisfaction and an improved bottom line. One of the best ways to make sure the contracted cleaning staff is capable of achieving best-in-class results, with every cleaning procedure, is ensuring the custodial team has completed formal janitorial training.
Floors are the first thing people notice when they enter your facility. They are also a major investment in both time and money. Maintaining the appearance of your hard floors requires daily cleaning and maintenance to remove soil that is tracked into your facility, decrease damage to your floors, and reduce the frequency of periodic or restorative hard floor care procedures that are more time-consuming and expensive.
Dirty and discolored grout affects many facilities even when consistent cleaning procedures are in place. Stained grout leaves guests with a negative impression. When guests believe that your facility isn’t well maintained, they may be hesitant to return, resulting in lost business.
