Industrial and Commercial Safety Non Slip Floor Cleaning and Restoration.
Non-slip safety vinyl floor covering in Birmingham is used in a vast number of industrial and commercial premises due to it being hard-wearing and having a non-slip surface, and you will find this type of floor covering in Schools, Nurseries, Restaurants, Pubs, Toilets, Washrooms, Canteens, Shops, Nursing homes, shopping centres, Reception areas, Doctors surgeries, Dentists, Chemists, Night clubs and Factories. But because this type of flooring is semi porous it can be extremely hard work to keep the safety floor covering clean even with regular daily mopping. It is designed to “give” under pressure from the soles of a shoe, and can do this because it is porous. But this in time can become dirty as the pores fill up. But with our method and cleaning system we can remove all dirt, grease, soils, and detergent residues that have been left behind with daily use, and cleaning and general mopping.
Hard Floor Cleaning Before & After
Residential, Domestic Safety Non Slip Floor Cleaning and Restoration
Over the past 15 years, non-slip safety vinyl floor covering has been used in residential, domestic properties throughout the Birmingham, West Midlands area in Kitchens, Bathrooms, Wet rooms and Shower rooms, because of its non-slip capabilities. But every now and then these floors become soiled, dirty, greasy and full of detergent residues. These do not help to keep the floor surface non-slip and can become extremely dangerous in damp and wet areas. Our unique multi-step cleaning process will remove all the dirt, soils, grease and soap scum leaving your safety flooring cleaned and restored just like the day it was installed.
Important Notice: If you have non slip safety flooring that has any small tears, rips, holes or maybe the flooring is starting to lift due to poor adhesion or poor installation. We would not be able to clean and restore your flooring as our cleaning process could create further damage, so before cleaning can commence these repairs would need to be carried out by a professional before we carry out any cleaning. If you are unsure, please feel free to give us a call.
Hard Floor Types
From PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) as it is known, through to Karndean and Amtico Flooring, some of these come with a 10 year wear warranty. However minor scratches attract dirt and they then require stripping and sealing to restore their original finish if they have never been maintained by a mechanical process.
Design Floors including Karndean and Amtico Flooring
These can come in wood, stone and glass effect. Many homes and businesses have these floors laid but ordinary mopping and polishing is sometimes not sufficient to keep them in pristine condition.
The floors have a thin polyurethane coating applied when they leave the factory known sometimes as a “transport layer”. This is a wear layer designed to break down over time but still protect the floor underneath. The continual application of polish can result in an excess build up, which requires the old polish being stripped off and a new thicker polyurethane finish applied to restore the floor to a new looking appearance.
Anti-Slip, Safety Flooring.
Often known as Altro Flooring.
These floors can be textured or smooth but have the addition of quartz or carborundum grains that shine like diamonds in the floor. The idea is that they “give” slightly when walked on and adhere to the sole of the shoe. Because they grip they inevitably attract the dirt from the bottom of the shoe.
The use of oil based cleaners can leave oily deposits that oxidise leaving the traffic lanes yellow in colour that will not be removed.
These floors can be either natural or synthetic available in sheet or tile format.
They can be smooth or embossed for increased slip resistance.
Hard Floor Cleaning FAQs
Most of the times we can only give an estimated time on job completion, it all depends on how easy it is to access, setting up our equipment, how much furniture is in the property, how much cleaning work there is to do. We want to cause you the minimum of disruption but also want to clean to our high standards, but the machine we use can clean cruise ships where the cleaning standard has to be first class but in a relatively short space of time.
When we arrive and walk through the job with you, we always ask, are there any particular spots or stains that annoy you and do you know what was spilt at the time. If someone has spilt tea or coffee or any other type of drink or food, which has dye content, in most cases the stain may not be removed, but sometimes the stain can lighten, so we can never give a 100% guarantee to any customer, but your carpet and upholstery will be clean.
We also have advanced stain treatment procedures that we can use for urine, and turmeric, and we can always advise if this may be an extra treatment you would like to consider.
If it’s not the most thorough clean you have ever seen……. it’s FREE!
When a customer calls and asks for a quotation over the phone, we can only give an estimated cost over the phone on the information that you have given us. If you preferred a home survey and quotation, we can arrange this only when we have time and are passing. We are out carpet cleaning in Birmingham and also other surrounding towns and cities seven days a week and carry out between 2 and 4 jobs a day, so sometimes a personal visit can be hard to do. However, rest assured we have been working in the carpet and upholstery cleaning industry for many years and the estimated cost we give to customers are usually spot on. You can always send us a picture on WhatsApp if that helps. Without wanting to seem arrogant with our truck mounted machine, we know that if it won’t come clean with us, it won’t come clean with anyone else.
Just that we actually enjoy our job and we are just an honest family run father and son business. We try and be fair and honest, in not only the way we work, but also we rely on you being pleased with what we do. That way you tell your friends and colleagues, and that in turn gives us pride in the fact that we are recommended to somebody else.
Yes, we are fully insured, we have £5 million public liability and risk treatment insurance in place because, with certain commercial work and contract work, that is what is now required. This covers all of your furniture and belongings and also the items we are cleaning at the time just in case we have any accidents. And for your peace of mind, if you would like us to bring our insurance details with us to show you on the day you require the work to be carried out, then we would only be too happy to do so. In addition, we are also DBS checked for your peace of mind as we clean a lot of schools.
