Running any commercial business will have plenty of challenges. One of those is trying to keep within a specific budget.
For any maintenance department, manager, or owner who is dealing with a limited budget, one area that commonly gets overlooked or cut back on is commercial floor cleaning equipment. After all, especially if the company already has some type of floor cleaning equipment, even though it may be old, outdated, and too small for the job, it’s usually ‘good enough’ for those who hold the purse strings in the company.
It can be extremely difficult for somebody who understands maintenance to convince those in charge of the budget to open their wallets a little bit to invest in the right commercial floor cleaning equipment. People who see only dollars and cents will be encouraging departments to purchase the cheapest products they can find.
However, as any graphics design department of a company could attest, there’s a significant difference between a basic Toshiba laptop purchased for just a few hundred dollars and an iMac that has quad core processors and the best graphics card on the market.
Those departments will usually get what they want because they know how to change the focus to explain the necessity for better equipment to those in charge of budgets.
That’s what needs to be done for any company dealing with tight budgets that also needs new floor cleaning equipment.
Talk about the expense of a brand new commercial floor throughout the building and facility. The average floor may only last a few years if it’s not cared for properly. Investing a few hundred dollars extra or maybe a couple thousand dollars for the right equipment can help extend the life of those commercial floors by years.
When you change the focus to that, it may help influence the decision and provide the maintenance department the budget it needs to purchase the right floor cleaning equipment.
