Low Maintenance Floor Care Solutions

Floor care is one of the most time-consuming and challenging tasks that custodial teams are faced with, especially in areas that receive a lot of wear and tear from foot traffic on a daily basis.

Whether you are a building service contractor, an in-house custodial department or a professional cleaning company, developing a solid floor care program with the right type of products for your flooring material is essential.

Floors are often overlooked and as facilities begin the reopening process it’s worthwhile to check the state of your floors. If they are in rough condition, taking the time to refinish them can prepare your facility to open at full capacity and welcome back the influx of customers as the amount of in person activity increases.

An investment in your facility flooring will keep your business on solid ground!

The Challenges of Maintaining Your Floors

One of the biggest headaches for cleaning and maintaining VCT and terrazzo floors is removing old semi-permanent urethane coatings and other conventional co-polymer finishes efficiently and effectively from your flooring surface. This process is labor intensive and demands a substantial chunk of time, so minimizing the need to do this maintenance will save you on money and time in the long run.

Another frequent problem is alcohol hand sanitizer, which can cause a lot of damage depending on your floor finish. WAXIE’s Diamond Guard TZ Catalyzed Mop-on Urethane Floor Finish is unique in that it is both alcohol and Bedadine® resistant, so it’s ideal for operating rooms in hospitals and can be applied with a flat mop instead of a roller.

Advantages of Urethane Floor Finishes

There are many types of floor finishes that can be used on synthetic floors, but urethane-based floor finishes are one of the most resilient available and reduce the need to completely strip and refinish your floors to once a year as long as you keep up with basic maintenance.
