Rarely in the commercial cleaning business will you hear the term, “general cleaning.” That is because each cleaning task is unique; unique cleaning problems produce unique cleaning solutions. In following this adage, the maintenance of industrial floors is no different.
Floor maintenance works best when the duties, frequency of tasks and other services necessary to maintain the floor have been outlined and written down. Everyone involved in floor maintenance should be aware of and be a part of the floor maintenance plan. The floor maintenance plan should also outline exactly how the floors are to be maintained.
Regular maintenance — including such things as placing mats at entries, vacuuming them regularly and maintaining the outside entries by removing oily soils on sidewalks and parking lots — helps keep industrial floors clean. In addition, all building lobbies and entries should be dust mopped, mopped and cleaned daily.
More advanced floor care equipment, such as scrubbers, burnishers and cylindrical machines, can significantly reduce the time needed to care for floors. In addition, managers of industrial facilities will usually look for the most efficient equipment they can find, such as machines that can multitask: Scrub, clean and polish.
The chemicals selected for floor maintenance are also a concern. These chemicals, of all cleaning products, can be some of the most potentially harmful to the environment. Environmentally preferable floor care chemicals are now being introduced that work as effectively as conventional products but with less impact on the environment.
For industrial facilities, floor care machines with passive vacuum systems are necessary. These vacuums keep impurities from being released into the air, protecting the health of cleaning professionals and industrial workers.
