Well kept floors are key to a healthier facility
Routine Maintenance – 4 Steps
- Automatic scrubbing
- High-speed buffing
Sweeping and mopping on a regular basis will keep floors presentable and help prevent scratches and stains. Intermittent scrubbing with an automatic floor machine is the most efficient way to keep hard floor surfaces in peak condition. Always putting down clean water and picking it back up with built-in vacuum squeegees ensure squeaky clean floors every time. A 20 inch auto-scrubber can clean 23,000 square feet per hour and is ideal for larger floorplans. However, smaller units are available in 15″ and 17″ diameter scrub decks and are more maneuverable in smaller areas.
Ultra high-speed buffing plays an important role in maintaining many types of hard flooring materials. On average, these machines are available with 2,000 rpm motors and provide the “glass-like” shine that is sought after by many facility managers. Floor buffers not only make the floors look great, they harden the finish making it more durable. Providing these steps can prolong the need for an aggressive restoration process.
Stripping off old worn finish and applying fresh coats of wax is inevitable even with the best maintenance program in place. Most commercial floor coverings are highly durable and can withstand high foot traffic and elements brought in from the weather for long periods of time.
Under normal conditions, a restoration process is suggested on an annual basis. Some medical facilities and other types of buildings may require semi-annual services.
