How Cleaning Concrete Flooring Leads to Other Projects

Newly cleaned concrete How Cleaning Concrete Flooring Leads to Other Projects

Clean­ing can seem like one of those tasks that needs to get done for the sake of doing it. On the con­trary, prop­er clean­ing lies at the heart of a suc­cess­ful, safe, san­i­tary facil­i­ty. A filthy facil­i­ty isn’t just hard on the eyes; it’s also haz­ardous for every occu­pant. Your building’s floors can take on dirt more quick­ly than just about any oth­er sur­face, so floor clean­ing should be a top pri­or­i­ty. Keep­ing your facil­i­ty floor­ing in great shape yields ben­e­fits that reach far beyond your floors them­selves. Here’s how clean­ing your con­crete floor­ing can lead to oth­er impor­tant projects that improve your facil­i­ty overall.

How Clean­ing Con­crete Impacts a Facility

A Clean Facil­i­ty Starts with Clean Floors

Since com­mer­cial con­crete floors are no strangers to dirt, dust, and debris, this makes sense con­sid­er­ing the amount of foot traf­fic they receive reg­u­lar­ly. How­ev­er, oth­er parts of your facil­i­ty gen­er­al­ly attract dirt and oth­er con­t­a­m­i­nants at a slow­er rate than your floors. When your clean­ing staff or con­crete floor­ing con­trac­tors rou­tine­ly clean your floors, you’re more like­ly to notice the filth accu­mu­lat­ed in the rest of your facil­i­ty. Clean floors cre­ate a stark con­trast that empha­sizes the con­di­tion of your walls, equip­ment, ceil­ings, and more. By keep­ing your con­crete floors clean, you can more eas­i­ly stay on top of your entire facility’s cleanliness.

Clean Floors Reveal and Pre­vent Poten­tial Issues

It’s easy for var­i­ous prob­lems to fly under the radar in your facil­i­ty, espe­cial­ly those relat­ed to your con­crete floor­ing. Because floors are always beneath your feet, your eyes don’t nat­u­ral­ly bend towards them to look for warn­ing signs. Dirty floors can con­ceal abra­sions, cracks, stains, dam­aged joints, and more. While these var­i­ous issues might not pose a major threat to your floors or peo­ple, they can grow over time, even­tu­al­ly requir­ing seri­ous (and often expen­sive) repairs, such as expan­sion joint repair, re-lev­el­ing, resur­fac­ing, etc. When your floors remain squeaky clean, how­ev­er, even the small­est prob­lems become much more clear. Best of all, clean floors are bet­ter pro­tect­ed from many of the issues in the first place. 

Bet­ter Floors Facil­i­tate Cleaning

As impor­tant as reg­u­lar con­crete floor clean­ing is, keep­ing up with it requires resources (i.e., time, labor, and mate­ri­als). So, while you can’t just stop clean­ing your floors entire­ly, it’s pru­dent to invest in ways to reduce the long-term cost of floor clean­ing. One of the best ways to facil­i­tate this process is by for­ti­fy­ing your floors via con­crete floor coat­ings. epoxy coat­ings, for instance, seals the con­cretes pores and cre­ates a smooth, lev­el sur­face that’s resis­tant to mois­ture, dust, and chem­i­cal spills. As a result, these coat­ed con­crete floors are rel­a­tive­ly easy to keep clean. You might also con­sid­er con­crete pol­ish­ing as an alter­na­tive to epoxy coat­ings. Pol­ished con­crete floors are among the low­est-main­te­nance options avail­able, offer­ing extreme dura­bil­i­ty and nev­er requir­ing wax­ing, buff­ing, or strip­ping (plus, they deliv­er an impres­sive shine).

The Con­nec­tion Between Clean Con­crete Floors and the Rest of Your Facility
