It may come as a surprise to you but floors are one of the first things that help a visitor form an impression of your business. It may not even be on a concious level but you can expect that every visitor notices how the floors look and feel and that impression will either help put them at ease or make then feel uneasy. For this reason the cleaning and maintenance of a business’ floor area requires some careful consideration and action.
Commercial cleaners need to be able to clean and treat a wide variety of floors, taking into account the materials, style and age of the flooring. Different floors require different treatments. Some of the more common floor cleaning tasks would include-:
- Carpeted areas can help a business to present a modern professional image, however, without regular cleaning, they can quickly deteriorate. They are liable to absorb large amounts of dirt and dust. Without regular treatment carpets will lose their lush feel and texture and become drab signs of a business that doesn’t take pride in its appearance. Daily vacuuming will certainly help prolong a carpet’s life and maintain its appearance. Depending on foot traffic steam cleaning at least on an annual basis will give the carpets a longer life.
- Hard Floors will not trap dust and a good daily sweep will keep them looking tidy. However, over time hard floors will lose their shine and a professional cleaning company capable of floor polishing and buffing should be engaged.
- Tiled floor surfaces are very popular with many businesses. They look smart and retain their shine for long periods. However, they don;t hide dirt well and require mopping on a daily basis. Tiles need a little extra care as they are more prone to damage than other surfaces.
- Wooden floors can look spectacular in the right environment. However, they require specialised treatment by cleaners skilled in the treatment of wood floors. They require regular sweeping and mopping as well as polishing to maintain their sheen.
As flooring is such an integral part of every business’ operations it pays to engage the right people to care for it.
