Making a Mountain Out of a Mole Hill: How Some Commercial Facilities Create Major Headaches Out of Small, Daily Tasks

mountainThe expression ‘making a mountain out of a mole hill’ is quite common, but how many people truly understand what that means? Essentially, it basically says that person will make a major problem out of what is, in essence, a small issue.

There are many ways to make a mountain out of a mole hill.

For a commercial facility manager, that can happen in numerous ways. One simple way to turn a molehill (or a small issue) into a major headache or problem is to not provide personnel with the right tools. For example, when it comes to commercial floor cleaning, a company that purchases old, used, inefficient, heavy commercial floor cleaning machines is basically asking their maintenance personnel to spend more time, potentially cause more damage to the floor itself, and create a bigger problem in the long run.

A way to keep the molehill a molehill is to provide the right tools to the personnel.

When it comes to commercial floor surfaces, the right tools are the right cleaning machines. The right cleaning machines are those that are highly efficient, lightweight and easy to manipulate and maneuver, that have faster speeds, that offer more versatility and options, that do the same job in a shorter amount of time, and that are easier to move.

Centaur Floor Machines are some of the world’s most advanced, lightweight, powerful machines that reduce cleaning times, shortened stripping times, and make it incredibly easy for personnel to wax, polish, and buff floor surfaces to an immaculate shine.

Cutting corners and ignoring the condition and cleanliness of the floor surface in any commercial facility, be it a hospital, school, office complex, or anything else, is going to take what’s generally a minor issue and transform it into a major headache, especially if that floor has to be replaced far too soon or too often.

Is that really the most efficient use of a budget or personnel?
