Why Winter Floor Care is Important| TMG Companies

First impressions mean everything, especially when it comes to your business. It doesn’t matter if you own a store front, an office building, or a warehouse facility. The condition your facility appears in at first glance will immediately send a message to any persons entering your business. Creating a good first impressions is important but can be hard, especially in the middle of a New England winter. During the winter season it can be particularly hard to keep things clean with people tracking in mud, water, ice melt, and other debris throughout offices. This can slowly cause corrosion and damage to carpet and flooring, and if not treated often then as the days go on the problems will only get worse.  Sadly when your facility isn’t looking its absolute best because of these elements does not illustrate to both employees and customers that actions are being done to provide a clean and productive atmosphere.

During the winter season TMG Companies can provide services to help keep and maintain your  office spaces pristine all year round no matter what weather conditions are going on outside. Beginning from the exterior of your facility TMG Companies can provides extra cleaning to remove and neutralize the remnants of ice melt which, is essential to preserving the quality of your floors. When someone walks into your facility, they tend to focus on the entrance, so it is very important to keep this space clean. Unfortunately this is also where soils, sand and debris enter and start their journey through your office. Having an effective industrial floor matting system can keep as much as 80 percent of moisture and soil from entering a facility. At least 15 feet of premium heavy duty matting should be installed at all building entrances for maximum effectiveness.

It doesn’t matter how much preventive and responsive cleaning you do outside and at entrances, additional soils will still find their way into your facility. So it is important to increase the frequency that you clean your carpet and floor as this is necessary to remove additional contaminants that have found their way in. Many don’t know that cleaning carpets only when they appear to be dirty is actually too late. Carpets are good at hiding soiling. Hidden soils and harsh chemicals from ice melt, which act as abrasives, can result in premature wear, loss of carpet fiber, and even loss of color. This is especially true in high traffic areas. Additionally during these wet months full of rain and snow, there is a greater possibility of mold, mildew, and bacterial growth developing in carpets.

You should also give special attention to high traffic hard surface flooring during the winter months. Just because they aren’t carpet doesn’t mean they don’t experience wear and tear. Preserving the veneer and overall appearance of your floors requires daily cleaning with specialized chemicals in order to break down and remove harmful fragments that have been tracked into your facility.

Taking these steps in floor care maintenance is the only way to decrease damage to your floors. Daily floor care preservation can reduce the frequency of having to replace or repair hard flooring of damaged areas. This is typically not a cheap task. Going through the necessary preventative measures can save you money in the long run.

Cleaning upkeep in the winter is very different than the summer. It is important to provide all facilities with an active winter cleaning and maintenance plan in place in order to combat against the winter elements. Taking on a proactive approach to maintain a clean office, will not only extend the life of flooring materials, but it will also prevent added costs of replacement. You are also creating a space that shows employees their employer is working to provide them the best possible work environment. Keeping the conditions of your facility clean and professional promotes a thriving, productive, happy workforce. It will also look impressive to any clients or buyers who are walking into your workplace. Appearances are very important and mean something to the clients and employees.
