Top 4 Problems with Commercial Flooring

You have great customer service, popular products and a reliable staff. But if your business is plagued with flooring problems, it will still leave a bad impression on your customers or clients. Your floor is one of the first things they see upon arrival. It is in every room and area of your building. It goes without saying that floor cleaning services are going to be a huge part of your housekeeping plan. The issues that face any type of floor surface are influenced by environmental and traffic conditions that cause wear and tear on the floors. People are constantly walking in and out, which brings in rain, sand, small stones and dirt. Other factors that affect floors are when items get dropped on the floors and chairs or furniture gets dragged across their surfaces. Following are the top 4 problems with commercial and residential flooring and what you can do about them.


#1 Stains: A quick mopping might notremove stains from your commercial or residential floor. Ink, coffee, and certain foods can leave a lasting stain making your floors look dirty even when they aren’t. If left untreated, they could require repairs.

Solution: Depending on the type of material, stains require deep steam cleaning or floor stripping and waxing. High speed burnishing or spray buffing will usually help remove most types of stains.


#2 Odors: Your floors might get a regular mopping but they still look dingy. And worst of all, there may be a lingering musty or rotten smell in the room.If you are mopping with a dirty mop head that will simply push dirty water around the floor and may even be made worse if the mop is musty and retains millions of germs and bacteria.

Solution:Make sure you use clean microfiber mop heads and launder them on a regular basis. You may need to have your floor professionally scrubbed and/or refinished depending on the condition.


#3 Grout: The grout seams between the flooring and baseboards can become discolored over time. Dirt will get in the grout and discoloration will follow.If your tile and the grout start to turn dingy, you will notice that general cleaning will not improves its appearance at all.

Solution: Professional tile and grout cleaning and sealing will substantially improves the appearance of both the tile and grout. Grout sealants will help prevent dirt from seeping into the grout for about 3-5 years (depending on the manufacturer claims) but will need to be re-sealed after it is deep cleaned again.


#4 Cuts, Scraps, and Pitting: Anytime the flooring receives a dig it has potential to allow water and bacteria to enter the flooring causing unsightly staining, marks and grooves. This is especially true with soft and resilient floor surfaces, such as wood and vinyl floors.

Solution: Floor replacement is usually the only fix for these types of situations unless it’s a real wood floor that can be screened or sanded and refinished. Daily sweeping and mopping will provide a huge benefit from any damage being done. inspect and advise on caring for cuts, scraps or pitting in your business’ floor before it becomes a costly repair or replacement.
