Commercial floor cleaning is the bread and butter of facility maintenance, and one of the most essential cleaning tasks. No matter what the time of year (and in Wisconsin, we do track in four seasons of mud and grime), there is always a reason to schedule a floor cleaning—and ask all the questions that come with clean building floors.
How much does it cost to clean building floors?
The exact cost of commercial cleaning at your facility depends on the square footage and type of flooring that requires cleaning. The best way to determine the cost of cleaning your commercial floors is to request an estimate. Before you contact cleaning companies, decide what floors need to be cleaned and when is the best time to have the floors cleaned (i.e. overnight, company shutdown, holiday, etc.)
How often do I need to schedule a commercial floor cleaning?
Depending on the room and amount of foot traffic, facility floors should be cleaned every 3-6 months. If you have any concerns about staff health or keeping spaces allergy-free, schedule floor cleanings earlier and more often during months when your staff remain indoors.
However, don’t wait too long to schedule a floor cleaning. Procrastinating too long can create a build-up that can cause more workplace injuries and cost more to remove.
How can I extend the life of my building floors?
Beyond regular floor cleaning, there are other ways to extend the life of your facility floors:
- Place rugs, mats, and runners by all doorways and in high traffic areas (i.e. hallways, conference rooms, etc.)
- Regularly vacuum and sweep all floors as part of daily maintenance and cleaning.
- Promptly clean all stains and have the area deep-cleaned to completely remove the stain.
