Shinning Slates cleaned with our secret. 

First impressions count, right?! We know that the flooring of your premises is your customers’ first interaction with, and impression of your business. We also know too well that a badly maintained floor surface can be a very costly exercise.

So what can you do to ensure your floor surface stays clean, grim free and safe at all times for both your customers and employees? Here are a few easy tips:


Consider these few points when deciding on the cleaning frequency:

  • The usage of the area (is it a high traffic pedestrian/machinery area, a low traffic area, does it have many spills and/or spoils etc…)
  • Who uses this area (customers/employees)?
  • Is it a high risk area?

Know how

  • Does your cleaner really understand your floor type, its’ requirements and how best to clean and maintain it for long term life of your floor?
  • What maintenance schedule has your cleaner put in place to maintain your floor surface?

Using the right product

  • More is not always best

Too often, cleaners will add too much product in the hope that it will alleviate the grim and dirt on your floor surface. This is not the case and will in fact take your floor’s cleanliness into the abyss.

  • Dirty mop heads

How many times have you seen a mop sitting in filthy water? It’s no wonder so many floor surfaces become grimy after being cleaned by dirty water! doesn’t change it much.

Have a plan

  • A periodical preventative maintenance plan is imperative to keep your surfaces looking lustre all year long. Without this, the build-up of grime, dirt and chemicals make it more difficult to maintain your floors in the long term.
  • Ensure your plan is revised annually so that it meets the safety and customer needs of your business.
  • Speak with your cleaning provider about what is working for you and what you’d like to see continue for the life of your floor surface.
