Any facilities manager knows the value of clean floors to a company’s image and in terms of safety for visitors and staff. The unpredictability of weather means that floor cleanliness can become an issue no matter the time of year, but traffic through your doors during storms is normally accompanied by debris, mud, and water. Having a floor cleaning programme can make a big difference to managing this situation and ensuring you create the right impression from the moment people enter your premises. Here are a few things to keep in mind when it comes to your business’s floor cleanliness.


Prepare for daily cleaning.

When there is bad weather, daily cleaning will become unavoidable in order to prevent slippery and unsightly floors. It may also be advisable to have the means to quickly clean up planned for and on hand.


Use matting to maximum effect.

Matting is the best friend of any facilities manager during inclement weather – it will be hard to keep your floors clean around entrances without it. In terms of cleanliness, matting is an effective means of removing soil from the feet of guests and staff, reducing the frequency of cleans.


A worker is only as good as his tools.

Sometimes mops and towels just won’t make the grade. Make sure you have the right equipment for the regularity and intensity of the required cleans. When it comes to chemicals, you should also ensure you are diluting them to the correct ratios to avoid tacky or poorly cleaned areas.


Schedule a deep clean.

No matter the type of flooring in your facility, a deep clean will remove built- up dirt and maintain the surfaces of your floor. This should be done at sporadic intervals.
