These Boots Are Made for Walking...on Floor Mats

By: WAXIE Editorial Staff  |  August 14, 2019

Every facility, no matter the weather, should have a matting program. When planning a mat program, high traffic areas should be pinpointed and consideration should be given to environmental exposure. Strategic placement of mats is essential for maximum effectiveness.

Entrance matting can improve air quality, protect floors and carpets, prevent slips and falls, and save you money and time. Each mat is designed to stop dirt and moisture by performing a specific job to keep your facility clean.

With each breakthrough in product and technology development, our industry becomes better equipped to manage infection control and create new standards that reflect what we've learned.

One leader in improving commercial cleaning is the Internet of Things (IoT). IoT is the interconnection via the Internet of computing devices found in everyday objects, enabling them to send and receive data.

IoT technology has become increasingly popular in homes with the use of devices like Nest thermostats and surveillance systems, Google Home, and other app controlled devices. As businesses begin to also implement IoT in their facilities, it impacts the commercial cleaning industry for the better.

How to Choose, Use & Care for a Dust Mop

By: WAXIE Editorial Staff  |  July 17, 2019

On Dust Mops…

Dust mopping is the second line of defense for protecting your investment (after entrance matting) in hard floors and hard floor care programs. When performed regularly and thoroughly with the right tools, dust mopping saves time and money. It helps maintain high gloss while extending the life of your floor program, since proper dust mopping will remove the fine abrasive soils that grind and wear on your floor finish.

Gym Floor Maintenance Schedule: Routine Cleaning to Refinishing

By: WAXIE Editorial Staff  |  June 19, 2019

As with anything, if you routinely take care of something it will last a long time, and it's no different when it comes to gym floors.

Gymnasiums are often the “showcase” of a school or athletic club. Good looking, shiny floors convey a positive image to the public, school officials and athletic teams that use these facilities. Sports floors need specific, proven maintenance systems that will enhance their natural beauty and protect their substantial investment. 

Wood floor care can be divided into two main systems:

  • Water-Based (recommended)
  • Solvent-Based (oil-modified) and Epoxy

WAXIE Brings Innovative Electrostatic Spraying System to Able Services San Francisco

March 26, 2019

Bill Sivori, Project Manager at Able Services San Francisco, does things differently than most. First, his contract cleaning business is devoted to a single client. But, that one account happens to be the largest landowner in San Francisco, with a four-building complex covering four square blocks, a total of 3.2 million square feet of Class A offices, 1.2 million in retail space, as well as the tallest building west of the Mississippi located a few blocks away. Sivori’s office is based in those very same buildings and once or twice a month he walks all 141 floors to build tenant relationships and to be proactive rather than reactive when there's a problem.

“I've been here eight years and have a great staff with an inordinate amount of management for four buildings, including an operations manager, full admin, two supervisors and eight foremen,” said Sivori. “We have close to 400 different tenants, most of which are high end lawyers, investment bankers, insurance and high-tech companies. Tenants trust when we say we're going to do something, it gets done.”
