Proper Care of Hard-Surface Floors Keep Them Looking Great

Posted at 2:06 PM

Hard surface flooring such as ceramic, tile, marble or wood is a wonderful option for many facilities. They look great, come in a variety of colors, can be textured for added safety and beauty, and are very affordable to install. In addition to all of that, they are fairly easy to maintain. There are a few steps that ServiceMaster Recovery by Restoration Holdings Services, in Green Bay and Sturgeon Bay, WI, can help you with in order to keep your beautiful hard surface floors looking their best!

First, your concrete flooring needs to be properly cleaned and maintained. Dry soil is tracked into facilities on the shoes of employees and visitors. Soil not only makes your flooring look dirty, but it can also cause scratches or even become embedded in the floor itself.

One of the best ways to prevent your hard surface floors from becoming dirty and scratched is to prevent as much soil from being tracked into your facility as possible. Having floor mats at all entrances can drastically reduce the dirt and soil tracked into your building, which will keep your vinyl, marble or wood floors looking as new as possible.

Although you are able to prevent much of the soil from coming into the building, your flooring should also be cleaned daily, to remove that which does make it in. Vacuuming daily is the first step that should be taken. Vacuuming removes loose dirt without pushing it around or  further scratching or embedding it into your tile or quarry floors.

You should also scrub and polish your floors. This helps to clean any remaining dirt particles and restore shine and luster to your flooring.

Hard surface flooring has many benefits, and with proper cleaning and maintenance, it can last for many years to come. Call ServiceMaster Recovery by Restoration Holdings in Green Bay, WI and Sturgeon Bay, WI for the best hard surface flooring maintenance plan for your facility!
