Hard surface finished floors will last longer and appear cleaner through a scheduled maintenance program incorporating the following elements:
Floor Stripping and Refinishing – Removal of all old floor finish (stripping), thorough cleaning and rinsing of the bare floor surface, and reapplication of several coats of new floor finish to protect the floor from damage and optimize appearance.
Spray Buffing or High Speed Burnishing – Restores shine to finished floors to keep them looking their best. Depending on the traffic and requirements of the facility, buffing or burnishing may be performed quarterly in low traffic areas, monthly in typical office building lobbies and hallways, or more frequently in retail environments.
Regular commercial carpet cleaning service extends carpet life and keeps it looking clean and professional. Vanguard janitorial franchisees can provide your facility with several commercial carpet cleaning options.
Extraction – Hot water with cleaning solution is sprayed onto the carpets, agitated into the carpet fibres, and vacuumed out.
Shampoo – In buildings where it is not possible to avoid walking on the carpets for 5-6 hours, shampooing allows for faster carpet drying than the extraction method.
Bonnet Cleaning – In high-traffic areas, this interim maintenance method gives commercial carpets a fresh appearance between more intensive cleanings.
Dry Methods – May be best for carpets that are more prone to moisture damage or that have round-the-clock foot traffic.
