My name is Pete Alfieris, I am the facilities manager at the College of Engineering and Computer Science, here at UCF. We recently had two office suites recarpeted by your company and I had the pleasure to work with both Devon and Scott. I wanted to express my appreciation for the excellent service and work that was done in our office suite.

They showed up on time and worked until the job was completed with such professionalism. The installers were unbelievable with the care with any of the furniture and both installs. I have received such great praise from staff and faculty members whose offices were done.

Truly an incredible experience! Thank you again Scott & Devon!

Ongoing Best Practices for Facilities Managers

Flooring is, quite literally, the foundational element of your business. It sets the tone for the entire space and is one of the few interior design elements that could serve the space for more than a century. When you purchase a new floor, you should think of it as an investment. In order to get the best return on your investment, though, you need to take care of it. Depending on where the flooring is installed and how much foot traffic that area receives, you may have to spend more time maintaining and cleaning it than you would in other spaces. No matter what type of flooring you have in your business, proper maintenance can help extend the life of your floor and keep it looking great. Here are some handy tips on how to clean and look after all flooring types.

Concrete

Many industrial businesses choose to install concrete flooring as it’s the most durable option available and easily customizable. Periodic sealing and waxing is required for concrete floors. A commercial sealer will prevent moisture and debris from seeping into the naturally porous surface and waxing will help it maintain its luster. To clean, dust the floor before washing with regular cleaner. It’s essential that only ‘neutral’ cleaners and not acid-based cleaners are used on your flooring.

Carpet

Carpet is one of the most common types of flooring because of its soft feel, wide variety and the warmth it can add to a room. However, as far as cleaning and maintenance go, carpet can be a bit challenging. Carpets need to be vacuumed at least once per week (twice per week for high-traffic areas) to prevent dirt and grime from embedding itself into the pile. It should also be cleaned by professional hot water extraction every 18 months to prevent dirt, bacteria and grime from settling too deep. Spills should be cleaned up immediately.

 

Hardwood

Hardwood floors are a popular, luxurious choice as they’re available in many styles and colors and fairly easy to maintain regularly. Sweep, dust or vacuum the floor regularly and use a soft cloth to blot spills and spots as soon as they happen. It’s a good idea to have hardwood floors professionally refinished or to apply a finisher or polisher yourself every few years to keep them looking great. Use floor protectors and wide-load-bearing leg bases or rollers to minimize indentations and scratches from heavy objects.

 

Tile

Tile is a perfect choice for those seeking a durable option as it’s easily cleaned with mopping and sweeping. You must use a mop with detergent and water and utilize acidic cleaners to eliminate residue. The right sealer should prevent discoloration of the grout lines, but scrubbing, dusting and mopping are still necessary. To clean grout lines, use a toothbrush and a dense solution of bicarb soda and water. Apply it, brush it, leave it overnight and remove it with a wet cloth.

 

Vinyl

Vinyl can emulate many other flooring types at a much lower price and withstand a lot of wear and tear. However, moisture is the number one enemy of vinyl floors. Never let spills sit for long. Wipe all moisture off completely with a smooth, non-abrasive wipe to avoid damaging the lamination as well as the adhesive of the vinyl. Additionally, be sure to vacuum or dry mop your floor once or twice per week. Damp mop the floors according to the instructions on the recommended vinyl floor cleaner once a week.

Hopefully this helped you become more familiar with the management and needs of your commercial flooring. No matter the type, keeping floors in pristine condition really comes down to following a simple routine—vacuum, sweep and mop regularly and conservatively apply refresher products as recommended by the manufacturer. Whether you’re embarking on a floor replacement project or are just looking for sensible ways to revitalize the ones already in your office, Cubix, Inc. is happy to assist you throughout the process.
