HARD FLOOR MAINTENANCE
We have looked into the most common flooring types here in Zimbabwe. Now hard floor care maintenance is not going to be a full list of step by step. But the maintenance is one fit for all flooring types excluding carpet floors. On a routine basis, your cleaning team should scrub the flooring with a properlydiluted solution, then thoroughly rinse it. When the tile is dry, they can do a “spray buff “ to return the original gloss to the tile.
Cleaners will always have to clean grout on flooring tiles. The frequency with which you’ll need to get your grout cleaned on ceramic flooring will be dependent on how much traffic your floor sees on a day-to-day basis. It’s a good idea to check with the manufacturer of your ceramic flooring to see what kind of grout cleaner they recommend.
However carpet flooring will use equipment to clean it deep and then dry quickly to keep it functioning and attractive.
