Winter is quickly approaching, bringing its own mix of harsh conditions and cleaning challenges. Now is the time to start preparing for the wet wintery effects that come with snow, ice, and slush. Soils, snow, and ice melt are abrasive and can cut carpet fibers and scratch hard floors, dulling floor appearance and causing lasting damage. Winter floor care will require more time and labor than other seasons, but with the right preventative and daily care, you can keep your floors looking their best despite the weather challenges.
Commercial floor mats are placed both inside and outside of your facility to protect your floors and your occupants. Floor mats are used in many different types of facilities including schools, hospitals, and retail stores to prevent slip, trip, and fall accidents. They are also used to protect the floors from abrasive soils, liquids, and harsh chemical compounds, like ice melt or oils from being tracked throughout your facility. Understanding the importance of mats throughout your business is important for preventing slip and fall injuries and keeping your facility looking its best. Not all mats perform the same and each type has its respective use. A proper matting program will greatly impact how cleaning is performed within your facility and how much it costs your facility.

Sometimes the most common auto scrubber problems can be easily fixed by you, so you can avoid having to bring the machine in for professional repair. Understanding the cause of a problem and how to fix it will shorten repair times and help keep your costs to a minimum.

When a member of your janitorial staff is injured, it presents a problem for the employee and you. Not only will you incur increased costs from workers' compensation claims, replacement labor, and insurance costs, but also the added costs from lower employee morale and productivity.
