There has been an enormous increase in commercial flooring projects in recent post-pandemic times due to surges in construction spending and growth.
Aesthetically pleasing and practical, commercial flooring is not only appealing to new facilities
Remodeling worn surfaces becomes necessary as buildings age and property owners and managers seek to improve productivity, decrease work related injuries and curtail maintenance and repair costs.
Flooring requires specialized care and each type has its drawbacks and benefits.
Enviro-Master’s floor scrub services are vital to the longevity of commercial flooring.
Why Are Floor Scrub Services Important?
There is never a second chance to create a first impression and this alone could not be a more important aspect to the success of any commercial industry under the sun.
The very first thing a new visitor or customer will notice upon entering a building is the state of the floors.
Whether they are shiny and clean or dirty and grubby will greatly influence visceral reactions to a specific establishment. Quality commercial floor cleaning is vital to any business.
This includes but is not limited to: retail stores; office buildings; hospitals; salons, gyms, spas and day care.
There are five basic reasons floor scrub services are important to each and every commercial space.
They are: compliance; safety; appearance; longevity and liability. More on each follows below.
Flooring is a major spreader of dirt, contaminants and germs in an office building or facility due to the incessant flow of foot traffic and equipment in and out every business day.
Contamination far exceeds issues of convenience and threaten the integrity of products, safety of customers and the incomes of employees and staff.
A thorough and frequent scrubbing regimen performed by the experts at Enviro-Master is far less likely to endanger the health and safety of all who enter.
The Food and Drug Administration has strict standards regarding the cleanliness of facilities.
The best way to keep abreast of their inspections is to schedule floor scrubbing services throughout the calendar year.
Clean floors reduce health hazards, the spread of germs and safety violations, which can easily lead to liability issues.
It is good business for owners and managers of facilities to do their due diligence and invest in the integrity of their establishments.
Considering that floors are the first thing that catch the eye of all who enter a business, maintaining a good aesthetic is a vital aspect to improving company reputation, credibility, loyalty and trust.
Maintaining clean floors deters danger and degradation by moisture, corrosion or other environmental damage.
Being proactive and providing regular floor cleanings by our experts at Enviro-Master can be a significant factor in how long a particular flooring will last.
What Are Floor Scrubbing Services?
There are three major floor scrub services that should always be included in every floor cleaning regimen They are: strip and wax; burnishing; auto scrub and floor scrub (synonymous terms).
Strip and Wax
Strip and wax is the foundational service for waxy floor types.\
Our teams apply a special chemical that strips worn or aged wax from the floor.
After allowing the stripping agent to rest for an appropriate amount of time, the floor is machine-scrubbed, which removes finish and sealers. Floor finish strippers and a new coat of wax is then applied.
Multiple layers of wax (usually about 3 coats) are added as necessary, resulting in a deep, long lasting shine.
This process will ensure a maximum shine for hard floors. It involves deep scrubbing and the removal in part of the top layer of previously applied wax. It begins with a thorough cleaning of the area.
We guarantees a perfect result with the help of their state-of-the-art equipment, which includes appropriate coarseness and correct rpm rated machines.
An effective burnishing rotation performed with the appropriate frequency is highly effective in maintaining a floor’s specific “feel” and shine.
This method is often chosen for health care facilities, office building entrances and common areas, day-care facilities and schools.
Auto Scrub And Floor Scrub
These two terms are used interchangeably, and the use of a floor scrubber is the most powerful tool in the arsenal of trained Enviro-Master technicians to maintain hard floors with larger dimensions.
Aided by cleaning agents, a rotating scrubbing pad used in tandem with a real time suction vacuum, has the capacity to penetrate layers that far exceeds any conventional floor cleaning aids.
These machines work well with most floor types including:concrete vinyl and tile, but require extreme care when applied to overly porous floors or non-sealed, natural wood floors.
The Various Types of Commercial Flooring
There are basically 8 types of commercial flooring and all have their benefits and disadvantages depending on the type of industry in which they are used.
These are: polished and stained concrete, epoxy coatings, vinyl, carpeting, hardwoods, laminates and rubber.
Basically speaking, concrete is a combination of sand and rock. A paste composed of cement and water coats the surface of both the fine and coarse elements and wraps them into a rocky mass known concrete.
This classic building material is becoming more and more popular today because it is both cost-effective and offers a clean, modern look and feel.
It is also a practical choice for business because it cuts down on maintenance and utility costs by providing light reflectivity, which can be costly for some industries.
It is also a sustainable choice because there are fewer waste materials produced during installation. Finally, this flooring also aids in air quality, as its surface does not retain mold, mildew dust or other allergens.
This type of flooring offers a different aesthetic that is often found in restaurants, retail shops, waiting rooms, houses of worship, outdoor malls and residential patios.
It is ideal for outdoor areas because it can withstand the elements and will not fade, crack or chip. It is also reasonably priced and durable.
This selection has experienced a surge of popularity over the course of the last few years particularly in automotive facilities, pharmaceutical companies, food and beverage plants, hospitals, airports, schools and parking facilities.
These floors can be easily customized to accommodate any size space, and are highly resistant to wear, tear and abrasions.
Often the choice for high performance environments, epoxy works well in a wide range of temperatures. Some epoxy coatings can also provide chemical and heat resistance as well as high UV stability.
This synthetic polymer flooring can simulate the look of hardwood or stone without the maintenance that is usually associated with both.
It comes in several forms which include: vinyl sheets; vinyl composition tile (VCT) and luxury vinyl tile. It is often found in many hotel lobbies, schools and hospitals.
Vinyl provides a durable, moisture-resistant surface and its available in diverse patterns and colors.
It should be noted that in some setting, tiles can become, faded, punctured and dented, and vinyl flooring can fade in areas with high UV exposure.
Some commercial settings opt for carpeting because of its ability to absorb noise and add warmth in colder climes.
Its drawbacks concern its vulnerability to stain and damage and the fact that it releases toxic chemicals during manufacturing. Unlike other surfaces, carpeting fibers can trap allergens.
If exposed to moisture, they are also susceptible to the formation of mold and mildew. Ultimately, carpeting is not as durable as other flooring options for commercial and industrial spaces.
These floors are elegant to behold, but our experts at Enviro-Master warn that they are not a practical choice for facilities that receive a high volume of traffic.
More expensive than others and involving lengthy installation, most companies opt for other more practical choices. Common problems concern cracking, cupping, buckling and crowning.
This flooring is easy to maintain, durable, hygienic and usually waterproof. Often found in LEED certified facilities, which guarantees they are committed to environmentally-conscious building practices, the main drawback about laminates is that they can be difficult to repair if damaged.
This material is a practical choice for gyms, hospitals, commercial kitchens and schools because it provides cushioning, which reduces both injury and fatigue.
While not as visually appealing as other choices, rubber is slip resistant, easy to maintain, sound absorbent, and comfortable. It is subject to discoloration over the course of time and usage.
