Winter Weather Floorcare
Winter weather can be bad news for floors, and the task of maintaining them can be daunting this time of year. Salted roads and walkways are necessary for safety during winter storms, but the debris is often dragged inside and throughout facilities, causing a significant amount of damage.
While these problems can cause a lot of stress, we’re here to help. Not only do we offer several products that can clean and maintain your floors, but we’ve created a list of helpful tips for combating winter storm damage to your floors.
Without proper matting, up to 46% of floor finish can be removed within the first 6 feet of an entrance after only 1,500 visitors come through the doors. Matts can scrape off grime and debris from shoes when placed outside facilities, and entryway matts can remove any excess the first matting missed.
Regular mopping of entryways and throughout facilities can remove salt and ice melt. Use products like Emerald, Rinse Free, and Ice Melt Remover to remove ice melt stains and keep floors shiny and clean. Clean floors can influence a customer’s reception of a facility and leave them impressed.
Take the time to implement a deep cleaning routine for your floors. You’ll make less work for anyone responsible for daily cleaning by doing this. This kind of cleaning can also result in floors having a “like new” appearance. Use our helpful floor finish decision chart to determine the best products for your facility.
Keep your staff updated on what needs to be cleaned, how often, and what products they should use. It’s essential that you keep a healthy stock of products and cleaning supplies during the winter months to maintain these routines day in and day out.
Floors are not only the first thing that visitors notice, but they also experience the most wear and tear in any facility. Keep these tips in mind when creating a maintenance plan, and you’ll be ready to handle what winter sends your way.
