When it comes to maintaining a property, both the indoors and outdoors need equal amounts of attention. If there’s one area, in particular, that should be frequently tended to, it’s your building’s flooring. Fortunately, flooring maintenance is one of the many services we provide here at Rapid Facility Services.
It’s easy to see how flooring materials are the most prone to wear and tear.
It is the most-utilised area of a building as it comes into contact with people all day, every day.
Flooring maintenance ensures your floors stay clean and free from hazards. Our team do everything from regular commercial floor cleans to major flooring repairs. We can also spot potential flooring degradation and will fix any issues before they become too hazardous and costly.
A high standard of flooring is imperative to the aesthetics of your building and the safety of its occupants.
For all your flooring needs, we’ve got you covered.
Substandard flooring is a biological hazard
Many of our clients are surprised when we tell them that their flooring plays a critical role in minimising bacterial growth. Too often, people think that as long as a floor looks clean, it is clean.
It’s best to disregard that thought altogether.
If you’re in the food processing industry, a high standard of flooring is a major requirement in meeting MPI standards.
Flooring degradation invites rapid bacterial growth which will quickly spread throughout your building if not treated efficiently. As the last line of defence against bacterial growth, the condition of your flooring is an extremely important factor in maintaining a building as a whole.
For this reason, we think it’s important to spot issues in flooring materials during routine flooring maintenance checks. We can also apply hygiene coatings to your flooring which will greatly reduce the risk of future bacterial growth.
Meet health and safety requirements with flooring maintenance
In every industry, flooring requires a lot of attention. Whether it’s a daily clean or a full renovation, flooring maintenance is what every industry has in common.
Poorly maintained flooring is a health and safety hazard – it’s that simple.
In a world where health and safety are taken so seriously, it pays to be extra vigilant when it comes to avoiding risks.
If your flooring is in bad condition, slips and trips are almost inevitable. The last thing you want to deal with is a breach of health and safety for something that could have so easily been avoided.
When we undergo flooring maintenance, we ensure we bring all related equipment to the site. We can never be sure of what we’re going to find which is why we prepare for every scenario. We’re also able to see areas that could pose a potential future risk, fixing them then and there.
Equipment and expertise ensure the deepest floor cleans
Deep cleaning is a service that businesses of all industries require from time to time. We offer hot water deep cleaning and chemical deep cleaning, both of which are assisted by specialised equipment.
The method of deep cleaning performed on your flooring will come down to a number of factors.
For example, the flooring material and the building’s purpose will play a large part in this decision.
However, we always ensure our clients understand our choice of deep cleaning method and are happy with our decision before we begin the job.
Our team are highly trained in both of these cleaning methods and always work to an extremely high standard. As deep cleans require a lot of water, we will either clean to your trade-waste disposal or dispose of off-site.
Flooring is the part of the building that is utilised more than anywhere else. Keeping your flooring in great condition not only makes sense aesthetically but it also greatly reduces flooring-related health and safety risks.
Our flooring expertise and specialised equipment are available 24/7.
We are happy to carry out flooring maintenance outside your work hours to minimise any disruption to operations.
From repairs to deep cleans, we’re the team for all your flooring needs. Give us a call today to book an assessment of your flooring conditions.
