Are You “Floored” With the First Impression of Your Floors?

You only get one chance to make a great first impression!  Keeping up with the maintenance of your lobby floors – whether they are ceramic or porcelain tile, natural stone, marble or concrete – is especially important. Who wants dirt, debris or mud being tracked in from the rain messing up your floors?

Don’t forget about your restroom floors! Restrooms get a ton of foot traffic, which means excess dirt and debris can make its way there too.

Having a good comprehensive floor maintenance strategy in place will keep up the appearance of your floors. In return, the appearance of your Kleen floors will impress clients, visitors and your staff.

Not sure which type of maintenance plan is right for your floors?  That is where the Mister Kleen experts can provide you with good recommendations.

However, before you decide to schedule a free consultation, here are some tips to keep in mind when seeking to maintain your floors:

  • For light traffic areas, it is ideal to have your floors maintained every three-to-six months. Medium traffic areas every three months.  Heavy traffic areas should be on a monthly maintenance plan.
  • Place walk-off or track-off mats at each entrance to reduce the amount of debris from foot traffic entering your facility… especially on those challenging weather days we get here in the Metro area.
  • Vacuum hard surface floors and ensure trash is being picked up daily will help keep your floors in good shape.
  • Sign up for an annual restorative maintenance package. Normal wear and tear is expected but unfortunate accidents do occur. Having a comprehensive annual package in place will increase the quality of the appearance as well as the longevity of your floors.

Another vital component of good floor maintenance is making sure the chemicals being used are not toxic to you or the environment.  Make sure to choose Green Seal (GS-42) certified cleaning solutions to accomplish this.

Many liquid based cleaners on the market contain bleach and acid which emit noxious fumes. Prolonged exposure to these fumes can cause harm to your health especially if the areas in which you are being exposed are not adequately ventilated. In certain extreme situations over long-term use, these harsh chemicals can erode your floors including the grout.

If you are concerned about your floors or it has been a while since they have been restoratively cleaned, then the best thing to do is schedule an appointment with Mister Kleen. One of our trained restorative cleaning technicians will meet with you to assess, diagnose and prescribe a solution that will help keep your floors looking great while minimizing health impacts among building visitors and tenants.
