  1. Floors serviced in this manner and maintained properly with a consistent floor program will not need a full strip and finish for 3 years.
  2. The Floors need to be Buffed Weekly and a Scrub and Re-Coat applied once a year. The wax will harden with the buffing and actually look better as the future scrub and re-coats are applied. But the floors need to be maintained with the Proper Cleaners (Neutral Cleaners), Clean Microfiber Flat Mops (not dirty string mops). This strategy must be executed without exception in order to maintain the integrity of the VCT.
  3. If using a Auto Scrubber Machine, the Scrubber Pads must be Changed out and Always clean. This is to include the equipment being kept clean, or this process will just contaminant the floors surface and ware out the wax sealer.
  4. From our experience if the floors look this good, the cleaning performance will follow the standard.

Tip 3 of 5 most valued cleaning tips

Tip Number Three: The Tale of Two Mops

Another tip that can save you time and money is to change from using old conventional loop mops, that have long been the standard for wet mopping, and replacing them with the new color-coated, economic, ergonomic and environmentally friendly, microfiber flat mops.

These micro-fiber flat mops are proving to be much more effective in cleaning floors than the antiquated loop mops. The positively charged microfibers are like mini-magnets that attract dust and pollutants.

Using the micro-fiber flat mops also alleviates the bending and wringing action that has claimed many a janitors back and shoulders. Studies indicate that using microfiber flat mops cuts water usage associated with mopping by 95%. They have also reported a 20% savings in labor costs when using the microfiber flat mops due to their light weight nature, effective usage and general dry time.
