In the midst of winter, how can facilities weather winter’s mess, stay clean during the day and preserve floor surfaces? Here are some winter maintenance tips to discuss with your cleaning team:
Saturated Entrance Mats
minimum of 15 feet of matting at building entrances
to capture dirt, snow, slush and debris. The scraper mat should be placed outside the entrance door to capture dirt, snow, slush, and debris. Next, a scraper/wiper mat made of tough fabrics which contain direct and moisture. Finally, a wiper/absorbent mat made with carpet facing to complement most interiors which leads to the reception area.
Watch for saturation during the day. Use a carpet extractor or wet/dry vac to remove excess moisture.
Over-saturated mats should be replaced with dry ones and rotated
as needed for maximum performance.
