The Importance of Exterior Maintenance

I've always said that the biggest cause of flooring failures is the wrong product in the wrong place and failing to live up to the expectations of the end user. The investment in flooring, which is sizeable in a commercial application, is supposed to deliver returns for years. In essence, “get it in the door and keep it on the floor” should be the mantra. But, even if you have the right product in the right place, it won't deliver the performance it should if it isn't maintained. You don't want your flooring to ugly out before it lives out its useful life. In this month's issue, Dane Gregory, our guest author and cleaning associate of LGM, begins a series on cleaning and maintenance of commercial flooring. I think you'll find this series eye opening and an excellent source of information. Dane consistently resolves cleaning and maintenance challenges on all types of flooring materials, soft and hard, often when end users think getting their flooring clean and maintained is futile.
