Such as marble, ceramic tile, terrazzo, or wood, can become slippery and unsafe if there is an accumulation of dirt, grease, or other grime.As dirt penetrates farther into a building’s interior, more dust will be able to accumulate on other interior surfaces.In addition, dust, grit and other debris on hard floors can permanently damage the surface.
The proper care program for hard floors starts with ample matting at the entrance of the building.High quality mats are very effective at trapping and collecting dirt and grime at the entrance, helping to prevent it from penetrating far into the building.Frequent sweeping, mopping with clean water and appropriate eco-friendly chemicals, as well as auto-scrubbing will effectively put dirt and grime into liquid suspension and remove it from the premises.
Softer floors such as vinyl composite tile (VCT), Laminated or parquet can also become slippery and unsafe if there is an accumulation of dirt, grease, or other grime.Modern floor finishes are formulated to provide a certain coefficient of friction that helps to increase traction as a person walks on a properly maintained floor.When a floor finish becomes dirty or scratched, its effectiveness at providing protection to the tile and traction for the foot is drastically reduced.
An effective VCT floor-care program also starts with effective matting.A properly trained cleaner/janitor will sweep or dust-mop the floors on a regular basis to cut down on the abrading effect of dirt and foot traffic.In addition, buffing, scrubbing, and refinishing will help to maintain the protective and safety aspects of the modern floor finish.

In general, floor care maintenance is divided into three frequencies.These processes specifically are for all flooring surfaces: Daily maintenance. As the name suggests, this is a routine process of removing dry soiling such as dust and dirt through vacuuming, dust mopping and damp mopping.By following these simple processes frequently, the floor can extend the time between more aggressive and costly processes.
The first step is to remove the dry dust and soil not removed by the matting.This is most efficiently accomplished by vacuuming carpeted surfaces and dust mopping, then damp-mopping hard floors.This should be performed daily at a minimum and more often when conditions require.The dirt removed at this point in the process doesn't have to be removed later with more aggressive processes and expense.
This daily cleaning should be performed more frequently at all entrances and less frequently into the center of the facility.Microfiber products are effective when used dry or with water because mivrofiber cleans surfaces mechanically, not chemically, by scraping the surface with microscopic precision.
