Cleaning & Maintaining Different Flooring Types

Nov 20, 2023

Flooring is part of the main aesthetics and safety of commercial spaces. Whether it’s a busy office, a crowded retail store, or high-traffic restaurant, maintaining different flooring types is essential to ensure a clean and safe environment for employees and customers.

Let’s explore the specific cleaning requirements for various commercial flooring types, including carpets, hardwood, and tile.

Carpet Care:

We help business to keep their carpets free from soil and grit which often accumulate on carpets and enable harmful bacteria to work undetected. A regular carpet clean from Serna, using our eco-friendly products and powerful machines, will ensure your carpet lasts longer and stays in great conditions.

  • Regular vacuuming: Daily or weekly vacuuming is essential to remove dirt, debris, and allergens from the carpet’s fibres. The frequency varies depending on how traffic the area is and increases in offices where pets are allowed.
  • Spill & stain cleaning: spill and stains appearing accidentally in any moment, its important to address them promptly to prevent them from becoming permanent.
  • Deep cleaning: periodic deep cleaning is crucial to remove embedded dirt and restore the carpet’s appearance.

Stone, wooden and vinyl floorings:

Our treatment includes scrubbing and buffing floors to a shiny finish, stripping and re-polishing wooden floors, and applying a protective seal to guard against damage. These treatments have enhanced the appearance of many establishments which leaves a great impression on customers.

  • Sweeping and dusting: sweeping is essential to remove dirt, dust and debris that can scratch the wood’s surface.
  • Mild cleaning solutions: we use hardwood-specific cleaner to clean the floor, and our operatives avoid using excessive water, as moisture can damage wood floor.

Protecting tile floors:

This material is popular in commercial kitchens, bathroom, and high traffic areas due to their durability and resistance to water and stains.

  • Sweeping and mopping: Regular sweeping and mopping help keep tile floors free of dirt and grime.
  • Grout cleaning: we pay special attention to grout lines, as they can accumulate dirt and mould.
  • Sealing: depending on the type of tile, it may benefit from periodic sealing to prevent staining and water damage

Safety considerations for any flooring types that will ensure to extend the lifespan:

  • Non-slip mats
  • Proper signage
  • Regular inspections

In conclusion, proper cleaning and maintenance of different commercial flooring types are essential to extend their lifespan, enhance the aesthetic appeal and ensure the safety of everyone within it.
