Spring Cleaning Tips To Keep Your Floors Sparkling

By | Cleaning

The grit and grime from winter foot traffic have been building up since last fall, and the floors of your business are probably looking a little worse for wear.  Even with regular cleaning over the winter, it’s normal for commercial floors to need some special attention as the weather warms up.  

But cutting through all that salt, sand, and muddy residue can feel overwhelming if you’re not sure what products to use to refresh your floors and make them gleam in the spring sunlight.  Floorcare techniques vary greatly depending on the type of flooring in your business, and commercial cleaners will have the most expertise in advising you on how to proceed.  

Commercial equipment and processes are truly the best way to ensure the cleanliness and longevity of your floors on an annual or regular basis.  But here are some simple tips and tricks to keep your floors sparkling in between professional cleanings:

Use Mats

It may sound simple, but if you don’t have mats in your business, you should get some.  Not only do mats save your floors from undue messes, but they also reduce the spread of harmful bacteria on the soles of people’s shoes.  

From a design perspective, mats help to delineate your entrance space, provide some texture on an otherwise bare floor, and come in all sorts of trendy colours and shapes.  If you have multiple entranceways in your business, protect your floors by providing a mat at every door, and even in high-use areas like hallways or outside of washrooms.  

Maintain What You Have

No rocket science here, but regular vacuuming, sweeping, and dusting will keep your floors in the best condition possible.  Vacuuming at least once a week will prevent tiny bits of dirt from getting ground into or scratching the surface of your floors.  And when it comes time for annual maintenance, the deeper cleaning will be a speedier and more effective process.

Also, don’t drag furniture across your floors under any circumstances.  Lift furniture when rearranging it and use those soft felt protectors on the legs of frequently moved pieces.  

Know Your Floor Type

Different floor types require special care, so don’t assume that a mop and bucket are the right solutions for all flooring.  Here’s a brief rundown of what’s recommended for some common floor types:

Hardwood – Cleaning technique depends on the finish; cleaning may involve a damp mop, ph-neutral soap, or no water at all.  Be careful not to get wooden floors too wet!

Laminate – Generally speaking, the less moisture, the better when it comes to laminate.  Clean with a vacuum or dust mop when possible.

Vinyl and Linoleum – Both can be washed gently with mild detergent.  But don’t use dish soap, which can leave a residue.

Tile – Tile floors are hardy and can be scrubbed with soap and vinegar.
