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.
The winter months bring cold, wet weather inclusive of harsh contaminants like rain, snow, and ice. And, with crude wintery weather comes hazardous conditions like slippery sidewalks and entryways. The good news is, you can alleviate the associated hazards and costs with an entryway matting system. Entry mats are the first line of defense for your facility's floors. Entrance mats don't just help prevent trips and slips when the weather brings rain, snow, and ice, they help to keep your facility’s floors clean and protected against any potential damage.
During the winter months, ice melt and salts are used to keep sidewalks and entryways from getting slippery, helping to protect the safety of building occupants. While protecting people from injury, ice melt creates a range of cleaning challenges inside the building. Although ice melt is applied outside in parking lots, on sidewalks, and near entryways, the particles can become stuck to people's shoes and be brought inside as they enter the building. The problem is, when ice melt residue gets tracked onto entryway matting, carpet, or other soft surfaces, it can leave unsightly white crusty stains. Additionally, ice melt is very alkaline, and when left on carpets, it attracts dirt and soils, leaving your carpets dirty and stained.
Floor care is complicated, and when you add snow, ice, and salt to the equation, finding the right floor care solution can seem nearly impossible.
