How do you create a commercial flooring maintenance plan?

You know routine maintenance of your commercial flooring is necessary, but do you have a defined, detailed maintenance plan that covers all your bases? Without a written plan, you and your staff may not be on the same page about floor care, and it’s easy to fall behind on the cleaning tasks necessary to preserve your facility’s floors. Use this step-by-step guide to create a commercial flooring maintenance plan that covers everything from in-house to professional cleanings and never miss a maintenance task again.

Determine the type and square footage of flooring.  A good facility manager knows their building inside and out, and that includes the precise type of flooring you are responsible to maintain. Is that tile ceramic or natural stone? Are those hardwood floors or laminate? Taking inventory of your flooring types and their square footage is the first step to developing a comprehensive maintenance plan.

Learn the best way to care for each type of flooring.  Different floors require different cleaning methods and maintenance routines; one vacuum does not fit all. Extend the life of your commercial floors by employing the right methods every time.

Establish a budget.  Plan ahead for the cost of regular professional floor care and include this in your monthly operating budget. It’s also a good idea to plan a contingency budget for unforeseen incidents that may occur, like specialized stain removal or water damage.

Establish in-house maintenance routines on a set schedule. Determine what maintenance tasks need to be completed in each area of the building and how often. Create a written schedule for when these tasks will be done.

Train your staff and hold them accountable. Teach them how to clean different types of flooring and assign specific tasks to be completed on specific shifts. Follow up to ensure these tasks are completed every time on schedule. Floor care should be treated as an essential task for your staff, not an afterthought.

Manage equipment and supplies. Set up a schedule and assign the task of cleaning equipment as part of your maintenance routine—filthy mops and vacuum cleaners are ineffective. Create a system to track inventory and replenish cleaning supplies before they run out.

Employ a matting system to protect points of entry. Proper matting protects your floors from excess wear and damage due to external elements that can be tracked in, such as salt, tar, or oils from the parking lot. Matts can also be useful near sinks, water fountains, and coffee stations to protect against spills.

Contract with a professional cleaning company to schedule regular deep cleanings. Consistent professional floor care is key to maintaining the appearance and extending the life of your commercial floors. A service agreement with a trusted company ensures you never fall behind on important maintenance, giving you peace of mind and beautiful floors.
