Commercial Floor Cleaning Dont’s


Use Harsh Chemicals

We mentioned the importance of regularly cleaning your commercial floors during the holidays or periods of high traffic. While this is an essential part any floor maintenance routine, you should take care to avoid using harsh chemicals, such as bleach, on your commercial floors. While harsh chemicals will accomplish the job of cleaning the floors, they can also cause chemical damage to the finish and surface of your floors.


Use Dirty Mop Heads

Whether you’re preparing to clean the floors in the restrooms or break room, you’ll want to make sure that your cleaning equipment is in good condition, and the mop head you use should be new or in like-new condition. An old or dirty mop head may have a buildup of dirt or other debris that can prevent your floor from being properly cleaned, or the swabs may be deteriorated, allowing the mop head to scratch your floors.


Neglect Buffing

Finally, you never want to neglect or avoid burnishing or buffing your commercial floors. Performing this maintenance task on a regular basis will help keep the surface of your floors in good condition. The type of buffing and burnishing pads and other equipment needed will depend on what type of floor you have in your building, and many choose to hire this job out to ensure that it is done properly in order to avoid inadvertently damaging the finish on the floors.
