Floor cleaning is the cornerstone of a sharp-looking operation. Often times overlooked areas of the business go unnoticed for awhile, such as kitchens or break rooms — at least to the client. But floors are something everyone sees, and send a real message about how you see your business.
Companies we’ve worked with have reported that even when you sweep the main part of a hallway, the part everyone walks on, dirt and grime can build up along the sides and corners. It may not be as immediately noticeable as the area they swept, but it can raise some flags to customers.
As we’ve talked about before, a thorough floor cleaning job involves stripping tile floors. This is a step people often skip, thinking that a quick mop job and slapping another coat of wax on the floor is good enough. The trouble is that dirt that was caught up in the previous wax coating, dirt that didn’t get mopped away, is now being locked in by the new layer of wax.
This can lead to uneven floors and additional scuffs in the tile.
In some cases, improperly cleaned floors can even cause slips. Given the costs of workers comp claims and other expenses we noted before, prevention is always the simpler route.
Outsourcing your floor cleaning tasks allows you to:
- Focus on other areas of maintenance
- Enjoy a safer work area
- Sanitize floors
- Prolong the life of the floor materials
