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.

Single-use plastic bags have been the target of state bans and legislation as their impact becomes more and more realized. The amount of plastic bags in the environment has become a huge problem because Americans alone use approximately 100 billion plastic bags a year, but only an estimated 1% get returned for recycling each year. Plastic takes years to decompose and even when they break down, they do not fully degrade. Plastic breaks down into microplastics or tiny pieces of plastics. Microplastics contaminate the environment and the food sources of humans and animals. More and more businesses in the affected states that provide patrons with single-use, lightweight plastic bags to take merchandise home, such as grocery stores, department stores, liquor stores, restaurants, convenience stores, and other retail stores will need to find alternatives to single-use plastic bags.
All janitorial cleaning equipment, including your floor burnishers, will break down at some point or another. Some problems you will be able to fix yourself, while others will require expert help. If you can solve the problem yourself, you will save time and money, not only on the cost of repair but also on the added labor costs that is required to still get the job done while the broken equipment is being repaired. Depending on the floor burnisher power source, you may experience different problems.
