Commercial hard floors require a robust maintenance program to keep them protected and looking great. There are three phases of floor maintenance:
Every 12 months or so your resilient hard floors will need to be restored with a strip and wax to revitalize your dull, worn flooring. This is a two-part process. The first step is to strip or remove all layers of finish from your floor. Then, once you’ve stripped all the wax (finish) from your commercial hard floors, the next step is to refinish. Refinishing can be a daunting task especially if you have little experience. You’ve likely heard of some things that can go wrong when applying floor finish from low initial gloss to leveling and streaking. To help you avoid these and other challenges of applying floor finish, we put together the key steps for a successful refinish below.
Are you searching for the best high shine floor finish? Selecting the right floor finish for your commercial hard floors can be challenging. While there are hundreds of floor finishes on the market, they can generally be segmented into two groups: high maintenance and low maintenance.
Floorcare can be challenging, especially when performing a strip and wax. There are several steps as well as various mistakes that are common which can affect the outcome of the procedure. Performing this restorative procedure is also time-consuming and expensive, so it is important to get it right the first time. However, given the time and labor it takes to perform this procedure, as well as the complexity of the process, there are often mistakes. This is largely due to untrained staff skipping steps and trying to consolidate or speed up the process.
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.
Due to changes in health and hygiene, restroom management has become a top priority for facilities across the U.S. People are spending more time than ever in the restroom due to increased hand hygiene requirements and health guidelines. As a result, the rate at which supplies are used is different and can be challenging to predict. Increased usage, paired with the demand for enhanced cleaning and disinfecting and higher occupant expectations and standards, has driven the accelerated adoption of the internet of things (IoT) and connected devices in commercial restrooms.
Restroom hygiene can make a big impact on your occupants, and yet they represent one of the highest areas of complaint in many facilities. One of the most common restroom complaints arises from unpleasant odors. Oftentimes, guests equate the cleanliness of your restrooms with the overall service provided by your business. Providing your guest with a clean, good-smelling restroom experience will be key to satisfaction. Foul restroom smells come from a variety of issues making them difficult to combat without the right combination of odor control strategies. About 90% of restroom odors are caused by urine. However, most urine odors do not come from inside the toilet or urinal but from urine droplets that did not make it into the toilet. This is a common problem in both men’s and women’s restrooms.
Commercial carpeting is popular in many facilities because of its ability to hide dirt and soils. Unfortunately, this same quality makes it hard to clean - unless you have the right commercial vacuum cleaner. There are hundreds of vacuums available on the market today and each is built to tackle unique surface cleaning challenges. Carpet pile is deep, and it traps soils and other contaminants in its fibers. We recommend the use of vacuums with a brush roller, typically upright machines, or backpacks and canisters with exceptionally strong air lift and static flow to reach deep into the carpet.
