Implementing a scheduled maintenance or cleaning program for your commercial flooring may not be the first thing that comes to mind when purchasing new flooring for your facility. However, it is highly suggested that you take it into consideration as soon as possible for a variety of reasons. Besides the fact that properly maintained commercial flooring exhibits a healthier working environment and leaves a lasting impression on your customers, it also saves you a lot of money in the long run.
There are various benefits to having a scheduled maintenance program:
Securing Your Flooring Investment
As your company invests time, money and resources into a new flooring installation project, it is imperative that you protect this investment for as long as possible. The longer your flooring lasts in your facility, the less money it will cost you in the long term. Flooring installations can become very time consuming and costly for businesses who don’t take proper care of their flooring.
Avoiding the Postponement of Organizational Operations
In most situations, organizational operations within your facility will have to be placed on hold for the duration of the flooring installation process for various reasons. (E.g. removal of furniture, old flooring, facility may need to be aired out after installation, etc.) Maintaining your flooring by implementing a scheduled maintenance program can avoid various unnecessary replacements of your flooring over time.
Minimizing Risk of Employee / Stakeholder / Consumer Injury
Improperly maintained floors, such as floors that are buckling and/or are uneven can lead to slip and fall accidents. You may not even notice these flaws in your flooring, but a commercial flooring maintenance contractor would. Slip & Fall incidents can be prevented when a professional is working on your flooring with an eye towards caution and safety.
Adhering to Health Codes
Poorly maintained flooring can lead to violation of building maintenance codes and/or health codes. By implementing a scheduled maintenance program, you will avoid oversights of mold, floor buckling, etc.
Preserving Your Look
Especially in high traffic areas, wear and tear is bound to occur, but with scheduled maintenance, rips, shreds, scuffs, scratches and stains can be repaired, replaced and/or rectified. The wear and tear effect can create an uninviting “run-down” look that companies should avoid at all costs. Image is everything in business and the ambiance of your workplace showcases your company’s brand and level of expertise within your industry.
