What You Don’t See Can Hurt Your Commercial Floors

3 Commonly Overlooked Signs that Your Commercial Floor Needs Some Extra CareWe all have a tendency to focus on what’s most visible every day. That could be snow, ice, and slush in the winter, heavy machinery getting dragged across the floor surfaces, high heel shoes, hard boots, rocks getting stuck in the soles of shoes, and much more.

While there are certain things you can do to minimize the damage to the commercial floors from these things, there are unseen factors that can be causing damage as well.

Heat, dry air, and other similar factors can all have the potential to cause damage to various floor surfaces. For example, extreme heat, such as direct sunlight, can dry out linoleum tile floors considerably.

In a short amount of time, those tiles can become cracked and start breaking apart. It will be almost unnoticeable at first, but when the first tile starts to fail, others close to it will also have problems. While your maintenance personnel might be working on other areas of the facility, a couple of tiles that begin to fold up or become loose pose a significant hazard to those walking throughout the facility.

It’s a good idea to consider the humidifier for facilities that are considerably dry or get excessive sunlight. If you don’t have any type of film coating on the windows of your facility that can block a significant portion of the sun’s ultraviolet radiation, consider a humidifier of some sort. Keep those floors moist, which can also be done with a regular washing daily.
