The 4th quarter of 2021 is upon us! To prepare for the upcoming high-traffic of the busy holiday season, your office floors could use a little TLC. Check out the following tips to keep your commercial space in great shape during the end of the year’s hustle and bustle.
Clean Your Floors Daily
Frequent floor cleaning goes a long way, especially during the holidays or other busy periods. We suggest that you clean your floors at least once a day. Not only will your employees appreciate a spic-and-span work environment, your clients will also be happy to do business with you in a freshly cleaned space.
No Harsh Chemicals
As you work daily cleaning into your floor maintenance routine, steer clear of harsh chemicals like bleach. It might get the job done, but it can also cause chemical damage to the floor’s finish. Stick with a neutral commercial cleaner instead.
Check Your Mats
Entry mats don’t get enough credit, but they’re essential for protecting your floors from dirt and debris. Strategically place your mats so that employees and customers can wipe the bottoms of their shoes before entering the building. If your business experiences heavy foot traffic, consider replacing them periodically to guarantee that they’re always in tip-top condition.
Grab a Dust Mop
While mats do everything they can to keep dirt off your floor, it’s likely that some debris will still make its way into your office or retail space. If you don’t take action against the collection of dirt and dust, it can break down and eventually damage the floor’s surface. All we want is for your floor to stay glossy and intact – that’s why we recommend regular dust mopping.
Avoid Dirty Mop Heads
Mopping a dirty floor with an old, dirty mop certainly won’t help to maintain a tidy environment. Even worse – if the swabs are deteriorating, the mop could scratch your floors. Always use a mop head that’s in new or like-new condition. Your business deserves it!
Don’t Skip Out on Buffing
Nothing brings more charm to an office than a floor that shines. Regular buffing or burnishing will increase the gloss and decrease any scratches – keeping your floor’s surface looking flawless.
