How Can You Preserve and Protect Your Floors This Winter?

Here at ResStone, we proudly and unashamedly live and breathe flooring. It is, after all, a crucial element in your industrial or commercial structure, providing style, safety, support, and efficiency.

It’s always important to be mindful of your floors, but that level of importance hits an all-time high during this time of year when the temperatures drop and New England is filled with ice, snow, sand, and salt. The surfaces under your feet are taking more of a beating than ever before.

So, what can you do about it?

Let’s take a look at some practical ideas for protecting your floors this winter season.

Preserving and Protecting Floors in Winter

Floor Protection and Maintenance

  • Quality Mats - Never underestimate the power of a floor mat. Especially when you place them strategically throughout your facility (near entrances is crucial!), you’re helping to provide a barrier of protection between your floor’s surface and abrasive shoes, equipment, etc. Invest in scraper mats outside your doors to catch the bulk of the sand and grit, then include wiper mats on the inside to collect moisture.
  • Regular Cleaning - When sand and dirt is left on a floor it just gets ground in over and over again with each passing step or rolling tire. As tedious as it might be, set up a consistent cleaning routine to help cut down on this damaging pattern.
  • Burnish or Polish - This adds another level of protection by helping to remove abrasives. And, as an added bonus, it looks great too!
