Even when you have a commercial cleaning service, there may be times during the day when your floors need to be cleaned due to high traffic (unless you have a day porter). Even if you have a regular floor cleaning service, if you have many people walking through your facility all day, floors may need some mid-day care. If you have linoleum floors in any of your spaces, it’s important to know the dos and don’ts for cleaning your floors.

3 Tips for Cleaning Linoleum Floors

  1. Start with a dry mop Linoleum floors are very susceptible to water damage. As a result, starting with a wet mop can lead to spots of water that can affect your floors over the long term. Be sure to start with a dry mop to sweep up any debris before you get started. It’s a good idea to dry mop your floors at least once a day if your cleaning service is coming less than once a day. If your cleaning service comes daily or nightly, be sure they know dry mopping your floors is a priority.
  2. Clean spills immediately Because linoleum, like hardwood flooring, is extremely susceptible to water, it’s important to clean up any spills as soon as they happen. Not cleaning coffee and other spills can lead to damage including staining. Wipe up all spills immediately, rinse the area with cool water and dry with a towel completely before allowing anyone to walk in the area. Swift action and drying completely are key steps to take to prevent damage like staining that requires additional care.
  3. Use doormats and rugs strategically Linoleum floors can be easily scratched by the dirt and debris on people’s shoes. This can lead to scratches, a duller finish, easier staining and ultimately make it more difficult to let your floors shine. Placing welcome mats outside your doors and small area rugs at the entrances to rooms with linoleum floors will do wonders when it comes to maintaining your floors. They’ll also make your daily cleaning process far easier overall. This small investment can save you time and headaches when it comes to keeping your linoleum floors looking their best.

These small steps can help you make sure your floors always look their best. A commercial cleaning company is also a huge benefit as they will provide regular deep cleanings to make your floors shine and avoid damage. Of course, stains and scratches can be addressed by a commercial cleaning company that knows their stuff if your floors already need some additional love.
