Floor Care Training Tips

Whether you are cleaning by hand or using the latest in cleaning technology, it is important that you know how to clean a floor effectively and efficiently.

If you are cleaning a large surface area, such as a shopping centre or a warehouse, it can often seem like no time at all before the floor is littered with scuff marks and other stains, so being able to clean quickly and effectively can be a great time saver.

Caring for your Scrubber Dryer

It is important that you keep your scrubber dryer in the best possible condition, as failing to take care of it can hamper its cleaning performance. Use a mild detergent and clean water combination for general cleaning; for more intricate or thorough cleans you will need to clean components individually, such as squeegee blades, and make sure to check all tanks and filters for blockages.

Transporting Furniture

Where possible, try to avoid dragging or sliding furniture across vinyl flooring. This can cause quite serious scratches on the surface which can be very difficult to remove. Even furniture with wheels such as office chairs can be quite troublesome too, so take great care when moving these types of items across your flooring. Protective ‘feet’ are available for these types of furniture,

Clean Floors Regularly

Whether you have a large cleaning team or a small one, making sure you have a regular, manageable cleaning schedule can help minimise the build-up of stains and marks on your floor. Work out a system that will keep your floors looking as clean as possible without overworking yourself or any cleaning staff in your premises.

Cleaning Procedures

Even if you have the best equipment available to you, without being aware of the proper procedures for cleaning your surface you will not see the best results. Different surfaces require different methods of cleaning, and as such it is important that you and any cleaning staff you may have are aware of the varying needs of each surface.
