Office Cleaning Floor Care

The floors in your office will most likely consist of either carpet (for carpet care, click here), or hard surface flooring. The two most common forms of hard surface flooring are tile or vinyl. Kitchener Clean is an expert in cleaning and maintaining all hard surface flooring.

Tile Flooring

Commercial tile flooring is generally either ceramic or porcelain (a specific type of ceramic), and can be either glazed or unglazed.  Both have advantages and disadvantages in terms of their appearance and durability. If you are looking to put in a new tile floor, it is best to consult with tiling experts, who can help you determine what will work best for your unique office environment. Once the tile floor has been laid and grouted, the care of the floor is the same - keep them clean and free of dirt, salt, etc., wash them often with a neutral floor cleaner, and deep clean them periodically, including the grout.

As part of our Total Office Care Program, your tile floors will be cared for and maintained on a regular basis with regular vacuuming and mopping. We also work with our clients to schedule regular deep cleaning of your tile floor, as well an interim Auto Scrubbing of your tile floors. For more information on our Total Office Care Program, click here.

Kitchener Clean also provides office floor tile deep cleaning as a one time service. Over time, even if you are diligent with your vacuuming and daily mopping, dirt, salt and other materials become embedded in your tile and grout. This is where a tile floor deep cleaning can greatly help with the appearance and longevity of your tile floor.  Our experts can clean your tile and grout floor, using a combination of equipment and cleaning solutions to bring them back to a “nearly new” state. Contact us for a free consultation today and learn how we can bring your tile floor back to life.

Vinyl Flooring

Vinyl flooring is probably the most common type of hard surface flooring used in an office environment. It can come in squares, sheets, and now even in strips, similar to laminate. It can be either glued to the sub-floor, or free float. It is durable, easy to install, easy to maintain, relatively inexpensive, and comes in a multitude of colours and patterns. Though there are many different options, what they all have in common is the need to protect the floor itself. Many commercial vinyl floors are not sealed and protected after being laid down; the flooring itself will wear over time, and before you notice a wearing of the actual floor, become dull. The best way to protect your investment in your vinyl floor is to seal the floor and apply finish to the floor.

As part of our Total Office Care Program, your vinyl floor is regularly cared for and maintained with regular vacuuming and mopping. We also work with our clients to schedule annual strip and finish of your vinyl floors, as well an interim refinishing in your high traffic areas. For more information on our Total Office Care Program, click here.

Kitchener Clean also offers provides stripping, sealing and finishing of your office vinyl floor as a one time service. Over time, even if you are diligent with your vacuuming and daily mopping, dirt, salt and other materials become embedded in your vinyl floor, and unlike tile, which is a more resilient floor, the actual vinyl material will start to wear. This is where a strip, seal and finish of your vinyl floors can greatly help with the appearance and longevity of your vinyl floor. Our experts can deeply clean or strip your vinyl floor, and then seal and finish it, giving you a beautiful, protected vinyl floor.  Contact us for a free consultation today and learn how we can preserve and protect your vinyl floor.

Other Flooring Types

Other than ceramic tiles and vinyl flooring, wood, concrete, terrazzo and other stone materials are the most common types of commercial flooring. Each presents its own challenges for restoring, protecting and preserving. Kitchener Clean has expertise with all of these flooring types.  Contact us for a free consultation today on what your options are for these types of flooring.
