As winter arrives, so does a whole lot more mud and debris being tracked into your business or other commercial space. Wet weather, snow, and road salt means that people visiting your facility are going to be bringing in whatever they stepped in on their way there. This not only creates a mess, but it also makes for tripping and slipping hazards that could cause injury on your premises.
Luckily, there are a few measures you can take in the winter to keep your floors clean, safe. and well cared for.
Place Mats at Entrance Ways
Placing absorbent mats at every entranceway and encouraging visitors to wipe their feet will make a big difference. The mats will absorb the majority of the snow and slush coming in on people’s boots and will reduce the amount of dirt and debris tracked into the building.
Up Your Cleaning Frequency
During the winter months, it is a good idea to clean your floors more frequently than you do the rest of the year. This will help to reduce the amount of mud, salt, debris, and snow that lingers on your floors. More frequent cleaning during the winter is a great way to keep mess at bay and reduce safety hazards for visitors and staff.
Schedule a Spring Cleaning
Even with the most diligent floor care, dirt and grime will build up more in the winter than the rest of the year. Schedule a seasonal deep cleaning for spring to get rid of any excess dirt that accumulated over the winter months and it will be much easier to keep your space clean for the rest of the year.
