Office floors are not just ordinary floors, as they showcase the level of class of an office, and it can have either a positive or negative influence on everyone that steps foot inside.
To increase the floor’s potential to create a good ambience and visually appealing aspect, we have some great tips that you can implement today to keep your office flooring neat and tidy.
Implementing regular maintenance of your office flooring is crucial to ensure that your working environment remains healthy and productive at all times. Many companies opt for floor cleaning services, which is much more beneficial for them in terms of time and money.
To keep in mind, when your floor manufacturer crafts your office floors, they will always recommend cleaning them in a specific way by considering the flooring material. Ensure that you have a clear understanding of how to clean your floors, which is the best floor cleaner for them, and what methods you will use.
The best way to go forward is to use cleaning products with mild chemicals, as highly volatile chemicals can seriously damage the floors.
Use an office floor protector
Another recommendation that your floor manufacturer will make is to maintain your floors properly using a suitable floor protector.
For hard floors, using adequate protection is the best way to keep them safe in the long term. Office floor mats at your building entrance can also protect your floor further, especially in the foot falling areas where the damage probability is much higher. We think that replacing office mats is a lot easier and cheaper than changing the entire flooring.
Remove stains from the floors
There are many types of damages that can affect floors, and an easy solution to these is to clean all the stains and spills as soon as you notice them.
In case you have a big office, you should hire a janitorial service to avoid creating long-term damages to the floors. General stains can be removed from hardwood floors by merely soaking a cotton cloth with hydrogen peroxide, and then place it on the stain for five minutes. This will be plenty of time for the peroxide to soak into the wood and bleach the stains. In case the stains are more stubborn, you can clean them with vinegar and hot water.
Wax the floors
Waxing floors can be applied for many reasons, for example, it can add a non-slip property to your office floorings, whilst adding a nice and glossy look to them.
Wax is commonly used as a sealant, and it requires careful application, regular maintenance and re-doing. Most waxes don’t require regular buffing so that any non-waxing cleaning can be quickly done with a usual mop. A simple technique to rejuvenate your floors is to mix one gallon of warm water, one cup of white vinegar and one cup of tartar cream in a bucket, and to apply the solution to the floor with a mop. After that, allow it to sit for a while until the wax softens, and then scrub the floor in a circular motion with a special scrub brush.
Buff the floors
Buffing floors can keep an office looking professional and beautiful, and the buffing process involves removing the floor’s top layer.
Any imperfections that can’t be removed with a mop can quickly be taken out by buffing them out. In case you don’t have a professional floor buffer, you can mix equal parts of vegetable oil with white vinegar, and spread the mix over the wood floors in a thin coat. After this, simply buff the areas with a clean and dry mop or cloth.
Buffing your office flooring can extend their lifespan, saving a significant amount of money over time. In low traffic areas, you can buff the floors every three months, however, we recommend creating a good buffing schedule to ensure that your office floors are always taken care of.
There is a reason why all industries focus on keeping their office flooring clean and tidy. They represent the business as a whole and its standards, and to make sure that they are always held high, regular daily or nightly cleaning, as well as regular scrubbing, stripping, waxing, and buffing must be done.
