Commercial flooring takes quite the beating on a day-to-day basis. It receives much more foot traffic than your home flooring and therefore needs a more involved care and maintenance plan than what you do at home. While this may seem like a low priority to most businesses, there are several reasons why investing in your flooring can be good for your bottom line.
Flooring that is well-cared for will last longer, leading to fewer maintenance and repair expenses. If you have wood flooring, it also pays to take care of it so you don’t ever deal with rot, mold, or mildew problems. Flooring can make a good impression on guests as well, just as dirty floors will make people hurry for the door. All of these factors combined make flooring maintenance much more important than it may seem at first.
If you want to improve the look of your commercial floors, these three tips can make maintenance much simpler:
- Sweep and mop on a regular schedule – Depending on how much foot traffic your business sees, you may have to sweep daily and mop several times a week in order to maintain your floors properly. Bathroom floors and front entrances are most important because their cleanliness will make the greatest impression on customers.
- Invest in the right supplies – Certain floor cleaners only work for certain surfaces, and using the wrong one can damage your flooring over time. For example, wood needs a specific cleaning solution that won’t cause rot or water damage with repeated use. Make sure to look at the labels of your cleaning supplies and use the right products for everyday cleaning.
- Invest in deep cleaning – Even well-maintained floors will need periodic waxing, spot treatment, and other deep cleaning services to preserve their freshness. Make sure to talk to your MaintenX technician to determine a proper cleaning schedule for your flooring type and business traffic.
