Floor maintenance to a higher level

Floor maintenance overlooked in cleaning? That's well behind us! Over the last years the better floor maintenance companies are collaborating more and more with the better cleaning companies, this to get the floor maintenance to a higher level. Thanks to education from the floor supplier, floor manufacturer, the floor maintenance company and the supplier of cleaning supplies, the operational cleaning service, for the most part present at the client's place on a daily base, acquiers more and more knowledge. By informing and training this part of the chain, periodical maintenance can be partly done by them. This way, specialist floor maintenance is needed less frequently. The timely execution of floor maintenance extends the lifespan of floors, beneficial for both costs and environment.

business card

The floor is the business card of a company and plays an important role in the experience of the space. Just as with many things, here as well it is the first impression that counts. A constantly tight look of the floor therefor is very important. In practise we often see that if no action is taken when the first stains develops, it only gets worse after. Research confirms this; if you let something slip, this, unnoticed, leads to even more neglect. In other words: keeping a floor clean pays off. It doesn't only have a positive effect on the lifespan, but also on the behaviour of the user, keeping the floor beautiful for a longer period of time.

With the right focus and structural attention for the look of the floor, unnecessary work can be omitted. Professional periodical maintenance is a powerful tool to achieve the wished results. The specialist floor maintenance company can be supporting in guidance, execution and checks.

Collaborating

A close collaboration within the entire chain is essential for an optimal maintenance of the floors and to keep it that way. All parties must take responsibility. This means architect, floor suppliers and project upholsterers need to provide the end user with correct and uniform information about maintenance. The specialist floor maintenance company and supplier of maintenance and cleaning supplies can do this in an advisory role.

Inspection and maintenance instructions 

Every object is different: amongst others the type of floor, the field of application and the degree of use differ. That's why the specialist floor company always has to do an inspection first. From this inspection follows a clear advice on how to get and keep the floors in optimal condition.

With a maintenance instruction, the daily cleaning often becomes a lot easier. For example instruction directed at the type of floor. For an elastic floor applies as little mopping as possible, but cleaning dry. Other examples of instruction vary from treating dirty floors with a machine and removing stains immediately to the electronically brush vacuuming of entrances and carpets.

sustainable way of working

Floor maintenance sustainable? Absolutely, more and more. Doing what is needed with the adequate knowledge saves on supplies. By using the proper supplies the cleaning and maintenance of the floor can often be done more environmental friendly and without residues. By keeping up with the newest treatment methods and techniques there will be used and disposed of less and less chemical supplies.

We are in an interesting time for everyone in the industry. If you want to join together with the chain, we must keep working together optimally. We do this together with floor partners like LEOXX. Will you join us?
