After a period of time your floors can become faded and built up with dirt and grime especially if they are not being cleaned and buffed regularly. Our Vinyl Floor Cleaning & Sealing service will combat even the filthiest of floors and bring them up to a mirror shine. You will have no problem bringing clients back to the office with a freshly sealed vinyl floor.

What we do? Sealing a floor is not as easy as it looks or sounds. It is a list of steps that take quite some time to perfect. This is a very brief overview of what we do.

  1. We first strip back the old layers of sealer and dirt by pouring a solution of stripper and water onto the floor and letting it sit for a few minutes to soften the sealer enough that it is easy to remove.
  2. The floor is then agitated by our small slow speed scrubber which breaks down a majority of the old sealer and dirt. At the same time we detail the edges which is where most of the build-up of dirt sits.
  3. If there are shelves we use a machine called The Shark to get under the shelves in the hard to reach places. It does a fantastic job around the shelf legs.
  4. After this is completed we use our large automatic scrubbing machine which breaks down the last of the sealer and picks up the excess water.
  5. The floor is then rinsed twice to make sure we don’t leave a residue behind which leaves the floor completely clean.
  6. After the floor is dry it is buffed and then swept to get rid of any excess dust.
  7. We then lay 6-8 coats of sealer and up to 10-12 coats in foyers and entranceways and buff it again for a mirror finish.

Some floors needs sealing twice per year while other floors need sealing once per year, depending on the traffic to the area. It is a good idea to get your floors cleaned and buffed on a regular basis as this will prolong the life of the sealer as well as keeping your floors looking great in between stripping and sealing.

What you want to avoid doing is leaving the floor too late. If you leave the floor without sealer you are likely to wear into the actual vinyl instead of wearing into just the sealer. This could become very costly to repair and restore so make sure you have sealer on your vinyl floor at all times.

TIP: If you are using office chairs on your vinyl floor, make sure you use plastic office chair mats as to protect the vinyl floor from wear.

We are always hearing about germs and bacteria, of using soap, sanitiser, and spraying things into the air and onto our possessions to get rid of microscopic germs and bacteria.

No matter how diligent you are there are always places germs are hiding and multiplying. Be sure to add these areas to your cleaning list every day, week, and month to help lessen the germs around your home or office.

Here is a list of the 8 most common areas we think are a haven for bacteria and should be wiped or washed regularly with hospital strength disinfectant.

  1. DOOR KNOBS
  2. LIGHT SWITCHES
  3. TV CONTROLS
  4. HANDLES – ESPECIALLY KITCHEN
  5. TAPS - KITCHEN / BATHROOMS
  6. TOILET SEATS
  7. KITCHEN CLOTH / SPONGE
  8. PHONES

If you really think about what your hands go through every day and what they touch, I think you might start sanitising them more often.

Even if you were to just look at the 10 minutes leading into lunch where you work - and we can see how many items appear on our list inside of 10 minutes:

You go to the toilet (I won’t mention the toilet seat), you then flush the toilet without washing your hands – just like many people have done before you without washing their hands, you then open the door knob or latch – just like many people have done before you without washing their hands, you then switch the light off – just like many people have done before you without washing their hands, you then turn the tap on – just like many people have done before you without washing their hands, you then pump the soap – just like many people have done before you without washing your hands and then you wash your hands so they are nice and clean and germ free, leaving behind you a path of germs and bacteria that seems to be neglected on cleaning day. You then decide to have lunch, you know your hands are clean so you just go into the fridge to get your sandwich but 5 mins before you J. decides to have lunch and unlike you, he doesn’t wash his hands after he goes to the toilet so he’s just left germs all over the fridge handles that you’ve just touched with your clean hands and are now eating your sandwich.

It goes on and on... and if you don’t want to wear gloves all day every day then you just need to be aware these areas should be cleaned more regularly and keep some hand sanitiser where its easily accessible like on your desk, in the kitchen, in the car, in the bathroom, in your handbag...
