Cleaning the Parking Lot Can Directly Impact Your Commercial Floors

Cleaning the Parking Lot Can Directly Impact Your Commercial FloorsKeeping your commercial floors clean is usually a major challenge especially during the winter season. Now that it’s coming to an end, it’s important to focus on other aspects to help keep the condition and quality of those floors remaining in tiptop shape.

One aspect that often gets overlooked when it comes to maintaining commercial floors and their integrity and quality is the parking lots.

Parking lots often contain a lot of debris, especially after winter. There could be a tremendous amount of sand, pebbles, and other materials that have been left behind from the incredible amount of snow that hits Toronto on a regular basis.

While this sand, dirt, and even cracked asphalt might not seem like a major problem at the moment, it is getting tracked in on the bottom of people’s shoes. Every little grain of sand, every single pebble that gets stuck in the soles of shoes, and every piece of asphalt that gets tracked in can be scratching, gouging, and damaging the wax surface on the commercial floors inside the building.

Think about sandpaper.

Sandpaper does its job effectively because of the materials contained within the paper itself. Small particulates of sand are used to help shave down portions of wood to make it a much smoother surface. The only way it is effective is because of the uniform nature of the sandpaper and the motion of the sander or the person using it.

When you have people walking into and out of your commercial building with sand, pebbles, and other debris stuck to the bottom of their shoes, they are not going to be stepping in the same uniform manner. That sand can scratch and damage commercial floors significantly.

That’s why it’s important to clean the parking areas as soon as possible to remove as much sand and other debris as possible. It’s not just a matter of making the parking look great, but it’s also about protecting the commercial floors inside.
