Smart Tips for Preserving Your Business Waxed Floor Photo by Jack Jensen

Every business knows the importance of a waxed floor. The shine and the way light bounces off the surface make it a thing of beauty. Within weeks, though, that shine has gone after hundreds of pairs of feet have stepped over it. You want to make sure your floor stays in great condition. In this article, we are going to show you how your industrial flooring can be kept in tip top condition.

Neutral Floor Cleaners

Every cleaner is different. What works on amtico flooring in Glasgow will not work for another floor from another brand. In the case of waxed floors, the polymers in the wax are sensitive to strong chemicals. They are especially sensitive to cleaners that are too acidic or too alkaline.

What you need is a neutral floor cleaner. It is easier than it looks. Most floor cleaners will tell you whether they are suitable for use on waxed floors. Get this wrong and you could be doing the waxing all over again.

Use a Burnishing Machine

Professional looking results can only be achieved by using professional techniques. Unlike with commercial carpets, you have to take the time to care for your floor. A burnishing machine can work wonders. These machines enhance the look of a waxed floor. If you are not willing to pay for one, there are plenty of rental machines available.

When you do use a burnishing machine, make sure you use the right pads. The correct pads will make sure the wax is heated to the correct temperature. The wrong burnishing pads will leave swirl marks, instead of that glossy sheen. A professional will be able to help you with your decision.

Understand When You Need an Overhaul

One of the biggest mistakes businesses with commercial floors make is assuming they need to completely overhaul the floor each time it loses its finish. The truth is a quick clean and a new coat of wax could be all that is needed. Before you start planning on a big investment, try the clean and the wax first.

Keeping Cleaning Costs Down

You will have to spend money on cleaning equipment. The trick to keeping costs down is to spend the time to take care of this equipment. Keep the items clean and stored in a cool, dry location. This will keep those costs under control and demonstrate that you are the professional organisation you are trying to be.

Microfiber Cleaning

Microfiber cleaning is a concept most of us have never heard about. There are two primary benefits to using these materials in your cleaning equipment. The first benefit is studies have shown them to be able to pick up larger amounts of dirt and debris. This already demonstrates they are worthwhile.

As an added bonus, they have increased absorbency. This sort of absorbency means you will improve the air quality indoors. In a commercial or industrial environment, this is crucial for the welfare of the people working for your company.

By improving worker welfare, you reduce the number of sick days your workers take, and therefore reduce sick pay and improve productivity. What could be better?
