Increase floor life by adopting right floor maintenance practices

The corona virus pandemic has thrown everything out of place, especially our workspaces. We have been working from home, but as we start returning to our offices, we need to ensure cleanliness which brings safety and peace of mind to the people using it.

Unlike other surfaces such as office furniture, light switches and door handles, flooring has less exposure to risk because they are not regularly touched by the human hand. However, we understand that you might want to take additional precautions as part of your long-term plans to reopen offices and other commercial spaces.

In this article, we have shared some tips and solutions to help property and facility managers to maintain the appearance, condition, and cleanliness of their modular flooring – carpet tiles, LVT, rubber.

We’ve a service offer for our customers at the end of this article.

What is a good maintenance plan for your modular flooring?

To maintain the hygiene and longevity of your modular flooring, it is important to clean and maintain it on a regular basis. A good flooring maintenance plan requires a well-thought-out approach, something that considers space, density, and size of the floor plan. It also focuses on traffic flow, daily activities as well as cleaning and maintenance schedule and techniques.

Areas like entryways, lobbies, corridors, elevators, and break rooms are high-traffic areas while conference rooms, cubicles are normally considered as low traffic points. Hence, a focused plan as per the need of each area must be taken into consideration.

Durability and ease of maintenance contribute to the longevity of flooring.

Why do you need a cleaning and maintenance plan?

Keeping the floors clean and hygienic not only helps your surroundings to be healthy but it also increases the lifespan of your flooring; whether carpet tiles, LVT or rubber.

This will also help you to get rid of allergies caused by germs, dust, dirt, pollen, fungus, and other harmful chemicals which has become even more important in the current scenario.

A well-maintained flooring will help you:

1. Save money and stress in the long term
2. Create a healthier work environment
3. Retain your facility’s aesthetics

What are the complexities of floor cleaning?

A good looking and design- focused flooring essentially adds to the ambiance of your space. But the beauty of such products remains in its upkeep. It is a known factor that cleaning, and maintenance of modular flooring is not simple.

Due to the nature of textile and substances that go into the making of such flooring, it requires an expert hand to keep it luxurious, healthy, and long-lasting.

How to choose a cleaning and maintenance service provider?

Flooring often makes up a major portion of the project budget, the evaluation considers the detailing of pile thickness, density, type of yarn, colours, design, aesthetics etc. hence choosing the right cleaning and maintenance service provider becomes even more critical.
