The cleanliness of your facility has a large impact on the image you wish to project to employees and clients, as well as the perception of quality for your business as a whole. When it comes to first impressions, the quality of your floor maintenance program can have the greatest impact on perception as this is what people initially see upon entering your space and throughout your facility.  One big indication that a facility is not being maintained at the highest standard possible is when people encounter hallways with dust bunnies, scuff marks, or various pieces of debris littered about.  Adequate floor care is especially important in healthcare, education and industrial facilities as contaminants can compromise your building’s safety as unkempt floors are a hazard and add potential for injuries. It is critical to monitor and clean your building’s floors throughout each day, especially in high traffic areas. Maintaining floors in large scale facilities requires focus as daily cleaning can be monotonous, time consuming and difficult to achieve accountability.  For this reason, many companies seek outside help. Hiring an experienced company who can get the job done both efficiently and effectively is important to consider in order to save your business from excessive costs.  One of the most important tools for maintaining flooring in large scale facilities is the automatic floor scrubber, commonly known as the auto-scrubber. Auto-scrubbers require less physical labor and time commitments than the traditional mop and bucket approach and easily cover massive amounts real estate.
