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.
With the recent rise in microfiber products, many businesses are making the switch to microfiber mops. Microfiber mops offer increased cleaning power and more effective germ removal versus traditional wet mops. Microfiber can reduce bacteria on floors by 99% while conventional tools, like string mops, only reduce bacteria by 30%.
Using floor machines during your floor maintenance procedures will make the job easier and less time-consuming. Selecting the proper floor pad for your floor finish, machine, and maintenance procedure is critical to a successful floor maintenance program.
Utilizing janitorial cleaning equipment in any area of your facility will lead to a more efficient and effective cleaning program. Cleaning and maintaining your facility’s floor can take up to 80% of your time. By using janitorial power equipment you can reduce cleaning time and increase productivity. Selecting the proper power equipment for your facility’s floor type and maintenance procedure, is critical to the success of your cleaning program.
Buffing and burnishing are two periodic procedures for cleaning and maintaining your facility's hard floors. When used properly, both buffing and burnishing will help keep your hard floors looking great while making the job easier, taking less time, and saving money on labor.
