If your commercial space has concrete flooring, keeping it clean is an important part of maintaining your office space. A stained or dirty floor can leave a bad impression on clients and make your office look unkempt and messy. In some cases serious stains could have a financial impact on your business should you decide to move offices, costing you your security deposit. Fortunately there are things you can do to prevent stains on your concrete floor, let’s take a look at some ways to prevent floor damage.
Regular cleaning of your concrete floors can help prevent dirt from building up over time. The first step in cleaning concrete flooring is to sweep the floor to remove any dirt and dust that may have settled. Once the floor is clear of debris, you can move on to the second step, mopping. If you feel the floors are dirty enough to need a full mopping, simply mix a mild soap with warm water and gently mop the entire surface. If the floor is in good shape, spot cleaning stains may suffice.
Spot Treating Stains
If your flooring has developed stains that a simple mopping won’t remove, you’ll need to put in a little bit of elbow grease and attack the stains head on. Depending on the cause of the stain you may have to use different solutions, but for average everyday stains, a nylon brush and the soapy water mixture may do the trick.
For stains that include grease you will need to use something that can eliminate the grease, as normal soap will not. We have a few products that can help with this and we can help you find the right one for your needs.
Once the floors are clean, you’ll need to prevent further staining in the future. By sealing your concrete floor you can help protect it from stains while also making your routine cleanings easier. In addition to keeping your floors stain free, sealing can also improve the look of your concrete floor by deepening its color while also adding a slight sheen.
There are many different coatings that you can use on your floors, but finding the right one is not always simple. Don't worry. We can help you with that.
