5 Steps to Taking Proper Care of Your Commercial Floors

You chose and installed the floors in your commercial building to not only complement your business’ style but also withstand the test of time. With hundreds of feet walking across it a day, not to mention machinery, it’s no wonder that it can get dirty and gritty just a few hours after it was cleaned. 

So how can you take the necessary steps required to care for your floors in the best way possible? The skilled cleaning professionals at All Building Cleaning Corporation have put together a 7-step process you can follow in order to take care of your commercial floors yourself. 

However, once you read through this guide, you’ll realize that commercial floor care isn’t easy. It’s time-consuming and requires dedication and patience, which is why we always recommend working with our skilled commercial floor cleaning team to maintain your commercial floors, so you can focus on the things that really matter. 

1. Identify the Type of Floor You Have

Durable floors come in all shapes and sizes to ensure their style and performance suits your business’s needs. This is why the most important first step to taking care of your commercial floors is identifying what type of floor you have. Two of the most common commercial floor types include:

  • Laminates and Vinyl (VCT, Linoleum, marble, etc.)
  • Stone (ceramic tiling, concrete, rubber, carpet, etc.)

Now, this doesn’t mean that your commercial business doesn’t have another type of flooring outside of these options. Maybe your business is moving towards a more sustainable future, which means you have cork or bamboo flooring. 

It’s important to identify exactly what kind of floor you have because cleaning your floors incorrectly can cause major issues, usually leading to a floor replacement or thousands of dollars in an attempt to restore or repair them. The last thing you want to do as a business owner is make a mistake like that and watch money flow down the drain. 

2. Measure the Condition of Your Floors

Determining the condition of your floors is an important step toward creating a successful cleaning and maintenance plan. If you start cleaning your floors before you know where they stand, you could be doing all of this work for nothing. 

For example, let’s say your building has stone floors. You would need to create your own stone floor care plan. This would also be a good time to look at the installation of your floors. Are all of the tiles even? Do you see any cracks or dents?

You’ll need to remove coatings such as wax or acrylics to see what you’re working with underneath. It can easily appear that your floors are fine until you remove the coating and find a scratched and dented mess. 

If your floor is fine and looks like it made it through the wear and tear, you can move onto the next step. However, if it’s scratched and dented, you would need to restore your stone floor before cleaning and maintaining it so that you know you’ll be able to clean it fully. 

3. Find the Right Cleaning Supplies

One of the primary ways the commercial business owners and managers go wrong in cleaning their floors is using the wrong cleaning supplies. In many cases, people assume the more soap the better; however, this can backfire, leaving their floors dirtier and duller than ever. 

Laminate is a good example of this. In most cases, the best way to clean a laminate floor is to dust it and use a few drops of a cleaning solution formulated to help them shine. You especially want to check the cleaner you’re using on a section of your floor to make sure it won’t discolor or hurt your laminate flooring. 

By using the correct cleaners for your floors, you can help them remain durable and look beautiful at the same time. This will also lessen the amount of time it will take to clean them regularly. 

4. Make a List of Cleaning Services

Before you begin your regular cleaning and maintenance of your floors, you’ll want to figure out what you want for your floors. Do you want the grout to sparkle and shine? Are you going to make your floors last for a certain number of years?

Whatever you need, adding cleaning services will help you reach that goal. Some of the services we provide in our comprehensive floor care services include:

  • Grout cleaning: The grout between your tiles can become just plain gross. Not only can it harbor dirt but it can also allow bacteria to sit, putting the health of everyone in your space at risk. A simple daily cleaning can do a lot for the upkeep and appearance of your flooring. 
  • Scrubbing and deep cleaning: A good scrubbing of your floor can go a long way in appearance and upkeep.  
  • Floor stripping: Old layers of wax can make your floors seem dull and old. A simple new coating can bring life back into them. 
  • Floor waxing: Cleaning and polishing floors not only makes them shine but helps protect them from daily foot traffic. 

You’ll also want to figure out what actions you want to be completed on a daily basis, such as dusting, mopping, sweeping, or vacuuming. When you create your detailed cleaning plan, everything is laid out. 

5. Create a Detailed Cleaning and Maintenance Plan

Once you’ve completed all of the above steps, it’s time to create a foolproof cleaning plan for your floors. You want to identify what you need to be done monthly, weekly, and daily to ensure your floors are well taken care of and maintained. 

By using the correct products and services, you’re ensuring your flooring is one of the best investments you’ve ever made.
