As you may know, tiles are one of the most popular flooring materials in commercial buildings, but they’re also one of the most susceptible to damage and wear. In fact, after just five years, the grout (which holds the tiles together) can get dirty enough to crack and tear, which leaves your floors looking dingy, old and worn out. Thankfully, there are several commercial maintenance services that can help you extend the life of your building’s tiles and keep them looking as fresh as possible.
Give Your Floors an Update
It’s important to take care of your commercial property and extend its lifetime. One way to do this is by maintaining and restoring your tile and grout regularly. We offer cleaning and restoration for commercial properties, as well as additional services like sealing, coating, polishing, repairing cracks and grout installation. With these services you can keep your business looking fresh without investing in new tiles or renovating the entire space. The lifespan of a commercial building’s floors are impacted by how often they’re cleaned and how much traffic they get on a daily basis. Our maintenance services will help to reduce the wear-and-tear over time.
Maintaining Your Floors
Waterproofing can reduce the risks and negative impacts associated with leaks, floods, or disasters. To extend the lifespan of your flooring and other surfaces that could be damaged by water, many property owners choose to have water-resistant coatings applied. Coatings can provide a protective barrier between the surface and water. Protective coatings should be applied at least every few years as needed based on climate exposure.
Tile is one of the most versatile, low-maintenance, and cost-effective flooring solutions available. However, not all tiles are created equal and some are more durable than others. A sealant is needed to provide extra protection against water, dirt, and heavy foot traffic. Keeping a tile clean can be done by using mild tile and grout cleaners like ammonia or vinegar mixed with water on surfaces without grout lines. Grout should be kept dry with a damp mop or sponge to prevent cracking and allow for easier cleaning.
