We all know that floors take the brunt within a facility and spring is a great time to rejuvenate your floors. But floor damage is preventable if you have the right processes and tools. A huge chunk of a facility’s spend—about 67%—is on the management of hard and soft floors, and you want to protect that investment by taking all measures to properly care for them.
Good news! It’s really easy to prolong damage and get into a routine of preventative care. Simply sweeping or dust mopping floors regularly and having entrance matting to trap incoming dirt and debris can do so much. If you take proper care of your floors in these small ways, over time, it’ll reduce the need for frequent refinishing, repairing or replacing. Instead of stripping and refinishing, you’ll be able to restore the look of floors with a buff or scrub first. This saves you money and time, while still maintaining clean, healthy floors.
Another thing to keep in mind is that good floor care includes outside too. Sweeping walkways, parking lots, and other high-traffic outer areas reduces the amount of soils and dirt that gets tracked inside to embed in your floor finish.
