Keeping your hard floors looking clean and shiny can be a difficult task. To keep your floors looking fantastic, it is essential that the right cleaning program to protect your floors is in place. This will ensure that your floors look clean and shiny for years to come.

There are three key ingredients that each cleaning regime must have to succeed in keeping hard floors– these are as follows:

  1. A Floor Care Schedule – Creating a clear cleaning schedule and activity list is much more cost effective than replacing hard floors. A maintained floor finish protects against the substrate to prevent scratches and other damage, whilst keeping floors looking clean and shiny.
  2. A Thick Floor Finish – When it comes to floor finish, there is a lot of information one must process and consider. Failure to select and properly apply a high-quality finish is crucial to the status of your floors and your ability to maintain them.  In order to achieve best results, it is recommended that no less than 5 coats of finish are applied to the floor, ideally, 6 – 8 coats should be applied to fully protect your floor
  3. Quality Cleaning Products – When it comes to hard floor solutions there is a wide variety of products available to choose from.  Unfortunately, not all products are equal and therefore it is of utmost importance that you are choosing a commercial grade finish. Discounted products and even some of the lower priced commercial products often ware away faster and require much more up-keep.
  4. Quality Janitorial Equipment – When it comes to cleaning equipment it is important that you invest in at least one high quality item. The quality of replaceable items is not as significant compared to that of long term investments. That said longer-term investments need not break the bank.

It is possible to get high-quality janitorial supplies with competitive pricing – like the  Contractor range of rotary machines; offering unrivaled value and performance across a range of hard floor cleaning tasks including scrubbing, buffing, spray cleaning, and bonnet mopping.  At 230 rpm the Contractor Range provides the flexibility to effectively carry out most hard floor cleaning tasks.
