A How To On Cleaning Commercial Floors


Wondering how to properly clean your commercial floors? Tired of constantly looking at dirty scuffed up floors? Below, we will go over some of the most common commercial flooring and how to properly maintain them looking the best they possibly can.


Tile Floors


Commercial tile flooring is meant for longer durability especially in high traffic areas such as warehouses or manufacturing plants. You have your VCT tile floors as well as ceramic tile flooring. This can propose a more unique cleaning challenge with the grout, that can, over time, accumulate the buildup of dirt. Using a professional cleaning company can help solve this issue to restore the appearance to look brand new! With heavy duty equipment such as the CRB machine, this can affectively pick up all of the dirt and collected grime inside the grout, making them look dirt free!


Laminate Floors


First, what are laminate floors exactly? Laminate flooring consists of multiple layers of synthetic materials. The very top thin layer is what requires the most care to ensure they stay looking at their best. Albeit most laminate flooring is waterproof - water can still cause damage overtime -, the cleaning process does not use as much water as you would think to make sure the top layer does not get damaged. Commercial cleaning companies tend to use equipment such as dry mops, wet mops as well as neutral pH floor cleaner (no scent) or scented floor cleaner, depending on personal preference.


Vinyl Flooring


This type of flooring can be a little more difficult to maintain with approach and frequency. Vinyl, also known for durability and cleaner appearance needs to be cleaned regularly to maintain that look and feel. These floors can be cleaned with a traditional mop as well with neutral pH floor cleaner or added scent depending on preference. However, a professional cleaning company has proper heavy-duty equipment as well to get a deeper clean. Depending on the color of the vinyl floors - whites and greys - it may require a little more time and care to keep them looking freshly polished. Some professional equipment that can be used on vinyl as well as laminate flooring to really bring that "shine" out are a power buffing machine, neutral floor cleaner, soft mops, vacuums, brooms, and floor finish.


Hardwood Floors


Cleaning hardwood flooring requires a more delicate approach to avoid damaging the wood itself. Using the wrong equipment or cleansers can prove to be extremely costly. Professional cleaning companies tend to use - depending on the finish - a dry mop and/or a soft wet mop. You want to avoid any type of scratch marks or distortions on the wood itself. You also want to ensure you are using the appropriate floor cleaner with the appropriate pH levels. Oversaturation of any type of floor cleaner or water will result in water marks, debris being pushed around if not properly vacuumed or swept up first.
