Flooring maintenance is essential to keeping your floor looking its best. With that in mind, just by preventing the soil from entering the environment, it’s easier and less costly to maintain the longevity of your flooring.
Preventive maintenance includes using walk-off mats, grates, and removable carpets. Use chair pads to protect desk areas. Designate eating and drinking areas; and use lids on open beverage containers.
Routine maintenance includes a regular schedule of vacuuming and spot removal. It’s recommended that in moderate to heavy areas, such as entrances and lobbies, they be vacuumed daily. It’s also important to have the right vacuuming equipment, such as dual-motor vacuums for the heavy traffic areas. Low-traffic areas, like offices, should be vacuumed two or three times per week.
It is also recommended that you have a regular deep cleaning schedule. You should choose a cleaning method based on what will be the most effective and compatible with your floors and their respective traffic levels.
