The forces of winter can have a significant impact on businesses. From the interruptions in productivity due to snow removal to delays in shipping, winter weather affects almost every aspect of day-to-day operations—including your facility flooring. While a commercial floor cleaning may seem insignificant, a good quality floor cleaning can have a positive effect in three important areas of your business.
Lengthen the life of your floors
Are your floors turning white from the salt and melting snow? If they are, you’re not alone. Office areas, production floors, and warehouses are all targets of damage from employees trekking in salt and snow from the sidewalks and parking lot. That salt and snow can get ground deep into your carpet fibers and tiles, causing long-term damage and earlier-than-normal replacement rates.
The build-up of dirt, grime, and salt can cause your workplace floors to get slippery over time. Though you and your employees may not notice at first, or dismiss it as a normal part of day-to-day operations, a slick floor can cause slips, falls, and the resulting injuries. An investment in a quality floor cleaning saves you the headaches and expenses of worker compensation claims later.
Maintain your professional image
A commercial floor cleaning can add value to your company in an abstract area: your professional image. As clients and vendors come through your doors, they build an opinion of your company, product, and services based on the cleanliness of your facilities. The good news is that it doesn’t take a lot of time to maintain your professional image: all you have to do is contact a reliable, experienced commercial cleaning company with an optimal date and time. A good company can meet your time frame when employees are not on the floor (i.e. overnight, early morning, late evening, etc) and leave you with a clean floor you’ll be proud to show off—and makes good cents in the long-run.
