Let’s face it – office and workplace floors get dirty on a regular basis. Then over the course of the winter, floors endure extra wear and tear because of snow, salt, and extra moisture. Add high traffic from clients and staff, plus deliveries and other visitors, and you’ve likely found that you need to address your workplace floors more often. Now that spring is arriving, it’s time to consider a good deep clean to your work area floors. Here are our spring cleaning tips for your workplace floors.
Spring Cleaning Tips for your Workplace Floors
You probably cleaned your floors often during the winter months, but now that the cold weather and snowy conditions are coming to a close, it’s time to look at what’s needed to bring your floors back into top shape, and make them look nice for the next season to come.
Whether you have carpet, wood, tile, or other hard flooring surfaces in your workplace, our first spring cleaning tip is that you should address each area’s cleaning separately. Every type of flooring surface requires its own approach to cleaning.
Cleaning Tips by Workplace Flooring Type
- Tile is one of the most popular types of flooring for offices, commercial buildings, and other workplaces because of how classic and durable it is when it comes to foot traffic, moisture, and spills. It is also easy to clean and take care of overall. However, after the winter season, tile and grout can get pretty grubby. A good scrubbing can do wonders on this type of flooring. Bringing life back to grout will make your floors look refreshed and put winter in the past.
- Wood or other delicate flooring surfaces might have suffered a bigger beating over the winter months. Moisture, salt, sand, and dirt carried in by visitors and staff can be a minor problem or extensive depending on the routine flooring maintenance during the day. Reviewing this type of flooring with your cleaning professional can give you some good suggestions on whether a nice dry mopping and cleaning will work well or if the hardwood floor surface could use more attention. The debris from the cold winter months could have caused discoloration, scratching, and even surface wear to your floors. Your floor cleaning pros will have good tips and cleaning solutions to help make this surface shine again and help your workspace look its best.
- Carpets can’t be overlooked after long winter months. Winter dirt, moisture, and salt can cause staining and an overall messy appearance on your workplace carpet. While carpets should be cleaned quarterly, spring is the perfect time to give all carpeted areas of your building a deep shampoo cleaning. Not only can stains be taken care of, but the whole carpeted floor will also look nicer. A deep shampoo cleaning of your workplace carpet will eliminate any odors trapped in the carpet, too.
