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.
Finding the time and money to maintain your resilient hard floors can be challenging, especially in a time where staff is already stretched thin. To maintain soft, or high maintenance floor finishes you’ll likely need to burnish them 2-3 times a week, or more, depending on foot traffic and desired look. However, this may not be feasible for everyone. You might be struggling with labor or not have enough time and money to burnish your floors frequently. If that’s the case, then these floor finishes likely are not providing the desired look you’re aiming for. They may be dull or even appear a little dirty. The look of your floors is important. Floors can be the first impression on the people in your building, and when people think they are dirty they may negatively perceive the overall cleanliness of your entire facility. If you are looking for ways to free up staff and reallocate labor, you may be interested in low-maintenance floor finishes.
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.
Maintaining brilliant hard floors is vital to the appearance of your facility. Many times, floors are the first thing people notice when they enter your facility and are one of the key criteria they use when judging its cleanliness.
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.
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.
