Magic Of Interim Maintenance Procedures
March 9, 2018 - Flooring
By Dane Gregory
In the first two articles on flooring maintenance, the concentration was on soil prevention strategies and routine maintenance procedures. These two strategies are paramount for keeping your commercial flooring in top shape, and just maybe keeping it in the building for an extended period of time. But make no mistake about it, the money shot for commercial flooring maintenance is the procedure between routine and restoration. These methods are called interim or periodic procedures.
With soil control or routine removal, you are inevitably going to miss some soils. And because you are missing soil coming in from outside, or missing soils using routine procedures, the buildup begins, and if you wait, at all, it may be too late to save the flooring from early replacement. Or at the very least, it will cause the flooring to look tired, worn, or just plain dirty.
