A basic overview of Floor Care

Floor care is the processes and practices involved in maintaining and cleaning floors. This may include regular cleaning and maintenance to keep floors looking their best, as well as more specialized tasks such as coatings, buffing, and polishing.

Different types of floors require different types of care and maintenance. For example, hardwood floors may need to be swept or vacuumed regularly and treated with a wood-safe cleaner to keep them looking their finest. Carpeted floors need to be vacuumed frequently and professionally cleaned on a regular basis to remove dirt and stains. Tile and linoleum (Marmoleum) floors may require to be mopped regularly and treated with a suitable cleaner or disinfectant. Remember that certain floors can be damaged if the incorrect product is used.

In addition to regular cleaning and maintenance, floor care may also involve more specialized tasks such as stripping, sealing, buffing, and polishing. Sealing can help to protect and preserve the finish of a floor, while buffing and polishing can help to restore its shine and lustre. These tasks are usually performed by professional floorcare specialists. At Safic, we provide training in order to perform these tasks professionally.
