Hard Floor Cleaning

Every business needs their hard floors cleaned properly to boost brand image and attract new customers and clients. Professional offices, warehouses, nursing homes, medical offices, schools, day cares, car showrooms, and other companies commonly request regular floor cleaning care to help control wear and tear, minimize damage and reduce costly floor repair or replacement.

Facilities with high traffic, Florida / New York / New Jersey area have an even greater need for regular, high quality hard flooring maintenance. The finish on hard floors can quickly wear down, removing the protective coat and dulling the look of your floors. Each day your hard floors get spilled on and scratched as items such as chairs and boxes are dragged across the surface, and objects are dropped causing small nicks and dents in the finish. Wheelchairs, walkers, dollies and mail carts are regularly rolled across floors.

Left unchecked, the finish will wear down so much that the base flooring becomes exposed and vulnerable to permanent damage. At that point businesses face the choice of living with dirty-looking floors or finding the budget to repair or replace them.

Not every janitor is trained and prepared to maintain your floors. Hard floor care such as scrub and recoat, burnishing, scrub and recover, or strip and refinish requires expertise. In fact, an improperly finished floor can result in even more damage. If the finish layers are added too quickly, or not correctly, then a gummy, tacky residue can be left behind to pick up more dirt and leave floors looking dingy, dirty and dull. A cheap finish, uneven finish, or too few layers of finish will wear down very quickly leaving floor surface exposed.
