Are you tired of seeing that white powdery residue that salt and deicers leave behind on your flooring? Have your patrons and customers been commenting on that? If left untreated, the residue on the floor makes a facility look unclean and can stain floors and carpets permanently, creating major replacement expenses. There are several specially formulated winter floor cleaning solutions that can help you restore beauty to your floors and reduce the risk of slip and fall, at a fraction of a replacement cost.
There are many reasons why a person might slip, trip or fall on a surface. While someone may trip over an item impeding their way, Steve Spencer, who was featured on CleanLink explains, “a slip occurs when someone steps on a surface and traction is lost between the bottom of the shoe or foot and the surface they are walking on.” This could be anything from a wet floor, to residue from ice melters or buffers and cleaners. As CleanLink reports, slipping, tripping or falling can lead to significant injuries, resulting in lost time from work, expensive lawsuits, hospitalization or even death. The average cost of a slip and fall accident is about $7,000.
With this in mind, it is important to choose your cleaning products carefully to ensure you are getting the job done right the first time.
