If you’re in and out of the same building day in day out, the chances are that you won’t spend much time looking at the office flooring. So, you won’t notice dirty carpets, stained wood flooring or dusty laminates. But is this what your clients and other visitors to your premises see?
And it’s not just your customers that you are looking to impress. Taking care of your workplace, including the flooring, also makes your employees feel valued and respected.
Office flooring comes in many different materials, shapes and sizes and each need different types and levels of cleaning to maintain a good first impression. To help you keep your office floors clean and fresh, the expert carpet cleaning team at JDK Cleaning has come up with the following advice and tips for a range of different types of surfaces.
Carpeting may be one of the most forgiving and low-maintenance types of flooring, but high footfall in the office will leave its toll making the carpet look messy and mucky, especially in busy areas like the reception where debris is brought in from outdoors. In most instances, hoovering the carpet a couple of times each week will stop the debris and dirt from building up and becoming ingrained in the pile. You should also make sure stains are treated as soon as they occur.
This regular maintenance should be supplemented with a monthly or quarterly deep carpet clean. The most efficient way to achieve an effective deep clean is to hire the services of a professional carpet cleaning company to carry out the clean.
Laminate flooring can be a very low maintenance option for a workplace, but can show signs of damage and use quickly without regular care. A quick sweep over the laminate is enough to keep the floor free of dust and debris, but care must be taken when removing sharp or larger fragments of dirt. If not removed, this type of debris can scratch and damage laminate flooring, which may then need replacing.
An additional weekly mopping, using just a little water, will be enough to keep floors looking their best for as long as possible.
Wooden floors are generally built to last for decades and normally look great for a long time too. But to retain the quality look of wood flooring, you need to pay extra attention to cleaning and care. Regular sweeping, will help to avoid scratching and damage caused by large debris whilst weekly mopping will help cut down on dust and remove any more stubborn mess which may have accumulated.
Over time, however, wooden floors will start to show signs of scratching and fading, particularly in high footfall areas. When this happens, it’s time to sand down the surface of the floor and re-varnish the wood to restore its original beauty.
Again, this is a job best contracted to a professional cleaning company rather than attempting it yourself.
