What Kind of Floors Do I Have?If you own a building or are responsible for the maintenance of your building or suite in Phoenix, then this is one of the best questions to ask. If you do not know the answer, then you should ask a professional.
This reason this is such a good question is that every floor and floor type should be maintained differently. Floors come in both natural and man-made varieties. From stone, wood, vinyl, rubber, bamboo, cork and cement, all of which are different surfaces that require distinctly different approaches to cleaning. Having the proper knowledge regarding your commercial floor type and their condition is essential to proper maintenance.
Unfortunately, there are untrained and uninformed contractors who believe you can treat every floor the same. Nothing is further from the truth. If you want great results, then your commercial contractor must understand the different varieties of flooring and what products and applications he or she should apply. In addition, he or she should have the skill set required to complete the task.
How Do I Take Care of My Floors?If you are looking to take care of your floors, then knowing what kind of floors you have is the first step. The second step is knowing how to maintain them properly. This is where things often get confusing.
Understanding the terminology is a critical part of maintaining your commercial flooring. Too often, we see work being done that is unnecessary and more costly than required. Below, we have listed some terminology that is often used (oftentimes incorrectly) to describe maintenance needing to be done on a floor.
Floor Stripping – Stripping is the process of removing a topical finish from a hard floor such as VCT, concrete or other types of resilient flooring. A solvent (stripper) is applied to a floor, and a low-speed scrubbing machine is used in conjunction with a black scrubbing pad to remove all of the topical finish. An alternative process is to use a “dry prep” machine to effectively “sand” the topical finish to prepare it for additional layers of new finish.
Floor Scrubbing – Scrubbing is similar to stripping in that some finish is removed (top layers only), and a low-speed machine is used to remove the finish. The big difference is that a cleaning solution is used instead of a solvent stripper, and only the top layer of finish is removed.
Burnishing a Floor – Burnishing is a process used to polish a clean floor without scrubbing or adding fresh finish. The process requires a high-speed burnisher or a propane burnishing machine. The process effectively heats up the finish and then quickly cools to remove scratches and scuffs. It is typically an interim measure between scrubbing to maintain a shine. Under some circumstances, burnishing will also harden the finish and help it wear longer.
Buffing a Floor – Similar to burnishing, buffing is a process that helps to maintain a floor’s shine. In this case, a liquid finish product is applied to the floor, and a high-speed buffer polishes the floor. Your floor must be cleaned thoroughly prior to this process, as is the case with all finishing processes.
Floor Cleaning – This is the process of either using a dry dust mop (preferably a microfiber mop) or a damp mop (again, preferably a Microfiber flat mop) to remove dirt, dust and food and drink from the floor. This is the best way to reduce floor damage and extend the life of your floor finish.
Floor Finish – While the term “wax” is still used extensively in the cleaning industry, virtually all floor finishes today are synthetic compounds comprised of polymers, zinc and/or ceramic particles. Typically, polymer molecules are bonded via zinc particles to create a single solid layer of finish. In some cases where static is an issue, like in electronic and chip manufacturing, non-metallic bonding agents are used to achieving the same effect.
Historically, the finishing process required sealers to be added to the raw floor to allow for adhesion to the finish. Today, the properties of the floor finishes make this unnecessary. The technology has also made it possible to put down fewer coats of finish but still retain a high level of polymer “solids” on the floor and achieve sufficient floor protection. The consumer now knows that a finish can be laid down more quickly, costing less money and still getting satisfactory results.
How Often Should I Have My Floors Cleaned?The easy answer is, “when it is needed.” However, who determines when it is needed? Developing the proper intervals between various types of floor maintenance requires a little experimentation. Again, the type of flooring has a great deal to do with this, along with how much wear and tear a floor takes in a given period of time.
It also depends on what level of shine is required and balancing that with your budget. Since any type of floor maintenance cost is mostly labor, the more often some form of maintenance is done, the higher your expenses will be. This is why your knowledge about flooring is supercritical. Too often, expensive refinishing is recommended when a simple scrub is all that is required.
At Compass Cleaning Solutions, our goal is to always provide you with what you need, when you need it and nothing more.
