Meet your Hard Floor Cleaning Solution
Hard Floor Cleaning- Tile and Grout
The most common services we get asked about when we talk about hard floor cleaning solutions is tile and grout cleaning. Many popular tile and grout choices hide dirt quite well. Our clients are usually shocked when we spot clean an area and educate clients on the best way to clean and maintain this tile to keep it looking great and not actually just a harbor for dirt, grime, and other bacteria that don’t come off with regular daily mopping.
Tile and grout will clean up much easier than a traditional VCT tile. The problem is grout has enough ridges and edges that store lots of dirt and sand and who knows what else off of your shoes. That in turn sticks in the grout and can cause bacterial growth if not properly cleaned. When we are called out to inspect tile and grout the first thing we inspect is how much dirt and debris the grout itself is harboring in its pores. By doing this we can determine what chemicals should be used to produce the right results for our client.
LVT and Laminate Surfaces
LVT, or Luxury Vinyl Tile, and Laminate flooring options are becoming more and more popular in commercial spaces. Just recently experts are predicting that by 2024 the LVT market will be worth over 31 Billion dollars. These surfaces are different from the traditional linoleum that was installed in kitchens years ago. Unfortunately, that means that there is a need for specialty cleaning of those surfaces.
Too many times we see clients ruin the natural factory finish with low-end consumer products. Products like Mop and Glo can make a floor look brighter temporarily. Using these products can actually trap more dirt and make re-soiling happen a lot more often. Topping it off there are different methods of installing laminate and vinyl surfaces. Floating floors, glue down floors, seamless sheet vinyl, plank vinyl all of these factors matter on how you should approach a deep clean of them.
When you hire the Optimal Prime Team to handle your hard floors we are going to evaluate not only the best way to clean your floors now but also help educate you in quality products and solutions for the future to ensure that shine you desire.
Concrete and Epoxy Hard Floor Surfaces
The newest trend in commercial flooring is just using natural cement instead of covering them with another hard surface option. According to industry experts, industrial floor coatings accounted for 5.5 Billion dollars of revenue in 2019 and is predicted to grow another 5% by 2024. While these flooring options are very durable, great care is needed to make sure that they are being cared for properly.
A good hard floor cleaning expert knows the right products to use so your sealant looks great. They also know what type of hard floor cleaning products can damage hard floors. Unfortunately, the internet can give out bad information. Floors worth thousands of dollars can easily be ruined and create costly repairs just because of some DIY site. That suggested crazy concoction of toilet bowl cleaner, vinegar, and baking soda isn’t going to really make it shine. There is nothing worse than telling a client that you can’t restore their hard floor. The original beauty is gone because the chemicals used physically damaged the floors.

Traditional VCT Strip and Wax/Strip and Finish
Lastly, there is the good old fashion “strip and finish” or “Strip and Wax” VCT jobs. This is the most labor-intensive, high maintenance type of finish out there. Many folks are moving away from your standard VCT tile for that exact reason. Those who do have it installed still need their VCT hard floor cared for. We can work with you and your facility team to develop a floor maintenance process. With regular care and maintenance, many times you can avoid full strips and refinishes and save money with scrub and re-coat options as well.
