When a visitor enters your building for the first time, the cleanliness of your flooring is the first thing they will notice. Dull, stained or otherwise worn flooring will can detract from your building’s image no matter how much care you have put into the other elements of your facility. Even with new reception furniture, sparkling clean glass doors and windows, beautiful plants in the lobby, improperly cared for floors will catch your visitor’s eye.

This is why it is imperative that you maintain your flooring regularly and keep them looking shiny, clean and smelling fresh. Effective commercial floor cleaning is great for improving appearance, but it will also increase the long term lifespan of your floors and carpet, effectively reducing the cost of replacing this important feature. Don’t wait for your flooring to look dirty or dingy! Our OctoClean quality floor cleaning professionals can help you keep your floors looking flawless throughout the year. So how exactly can you keep your floors looking great between cleanings?

Use Mats

Stopping, or at least limiting, dirt at the entrance using floor mats inside and outside every door will help to reduce the amount of dirt being tracked in the building.

Frequent Mopping

Ask your floor care professional to mop floors as often as possible. This will help to reduce the amount of dirt that accumulates and also helps to keep stains from setting. Make sure that your cleaners know how to mop correctly and use special techniques and quality cleaning supplies.

Regular Cleaning of Cleaning Equipment

This step is often forgotten or neglected. However, the cleanliness of your cleaning tools is vitally important as floors become much dirtier if you start the process with dirty cleaning equipment. Ask the cleaning team to change water in the bucket more often and to use special detergents and chemicals. Be sure that the mop is cleaned regularly and kept dry between cleanings. If your office chooses to go green, there are a large number of environmentally friendly cleaning supplies to choose from.

Regular Deep Cleaning

While daily mopping is crucial for keeping surface dirt at bay, deep cleaning is also very important and should be scheduled regularly. Deep cleaning will help to preserve floors from damaging dirt and water.
