One aspect of cleaning that can be easily overlooked is commercial floor cleaning. Most commercial janitorial services are going to clean your floors, but it is probably not the first thing you think of when deciding whether to hire a professional cleaning company. It’s more common to focus on things that are at eye-level (dusty cabinets, smudged windows, etc.) and the obvious like bathrooms and kitchens. But, you don’t want to forget about floors until they get to an unsalvageable state.
Properly cleaning and maintaining your commercial flooring will extend the life and extend the time between scrubbing and recoating. We offer a variety of floor cleaning services including dusting/sweeping, floor stripping, floor waxing, mopping, and interior and exterior floor cleanings.
Commercial Carpet Cleaning
Not all flooring requires the same care, and it is essential that the commercial cleaning service you hire knows how to handle each type. Carpet cleaning is one of the most common office floor cleaning services needed. Carpet cleaning often involves both spot treating for stains and spills, as well as an overall treatment.
Your space likely won’t require a full-carpet shampoo on a daily or even weekly basis, but it is a smart idea to have your carpets spot treated daily or weekly as part of your normal cleaning routine for spills/stains, as well as high-traffic areas. The longer stains sit, the harder they will become to get out. If you ever have a significant spill on a day that you don’t have a regularly scheduled cleaning, you should reach out to your local janitorial service immediately. You will also want to talk with your cleaning crew about what deep clean/shampoo schedule makes sense for your space.
Commercial Tile/Linoleum Cleaning
Tile and linoleum is the other floor treatment most commonly needed for standard office spaces. This flooring is typically used in bathrooms and kitchens and should be cleaned on a daily basis. A sweep and mop is the best way to treat this flooring.
An important note when it comes to tile and linoleum cleaning services is that the proper amount of cleaning solution is used. Cleaning chemicals are designed to be most effective at the level the manufacturer recommends, and adding more chemical won’t make the floor any cleaner, and will actually be wasting your money.
Commercial Construction Site Cleanup
There are also a variety of non-standard flooring types that require different cleaning processes. One example is construction site or warehouse cleanup. Cement is typically the flooring in these spaces, and while it is also treated with sweeping and mopping, it requires a different process and cleaning solutions than tile/ linoleum cleaning. For these sites, it is important to consider the type of debris that needs to be cleaned (dirt, mud, sawdust, oil spills, etc.).
Another less-commonly seen flooring type is hardwood or gym flooring. This will often require a regular stripping and waxing as part of the treatment. Our knowledgeable staff has experience with these specialized types of flooring, as well as all the standard types and offers commercial cleaning services throughout Maple Grove, MN and the surrounding area.
