Building service contractors (BSCs) are responsible for cleaning numerous spaces in educational settings – whether a K-12 school or an expansive higher education campus.
To effectively clean schoolrooms, offices, gyms, and other spaces, cleaning crews must invest in high-quality cleaning solutions such as wet/dry vacuums that are designed with their specific needs in mind.
With some help from our team at Intelligent Design Manufacturing (IDM), cleaning crews can take their day-to-day commercial floor care routine to the next level and achieve a more comprehensive clean. Find out how we can help conquer common challenges.
WHAT ARE SOME COMMON COMMERCIAL FLOOR CARE CONCERNS?
Attempting to maintain pristine commercial flooring surfaces can pose a number of challenges for BSCs.
Educational facilities are often spacious and may consist of multiple buildings on one campus. It can be incredibly time-consuming and labor-intensive for crews using outdated, sub-par equipment.
Additionally, there is typically heavy foot traffic throughout the day, leaving only certain windows of time to perform the type of cleaning service required for each space.
Traditional cleaning practices like sweeping and mopping, for example, fall short of delivering the level of cleanliness demanded of educational facilities:
- A damp mop merely pushes around dirt and other contaminants and can spread germs via the dirty cleaning solution.
- Similarly, dry dust mops have the potential to kick up dust and transplant it throughout other locations in a space rather than eliminate it from the environment entirely.
Educational buildings can pose unique challenges due to their size and the varied spaces that make up a campus. Several different types of commercial flooring surfaces may be present in one building by itself. And, cleaning practices and maintenance schedules must be specifically tailored to ensure maximum efficacy on every flooring surface.
HOW CAN YOU CLEAN EDUCATIONAL BUILDINGS MORE EFFECTIVELY?
Many crews looking to elevate their floor care routines choose to replace wet mops with commercial floor cleaning equipment like wet/dry vacuums.
A wet/dry vacuum is a commercial flooring maintenance appliance that is designed to remove dust and dirt from practically every hard type of flooring, such as ceramic tile, polished concrete, and epoxy.
The machine can vacuum solid debris and liquid from a surface, which makes this type of machine an excellent option to thoroughly remove dirty water from hard floors.
