As a facility manager, you wear a ton of hats: securing the safety of the facility, working with vendors, ensuring compliance with regulations, dealing with tenant relations, and the list goes on. A floor maintenance business will not only help check off those boxes, but we can also save you money in the long run.

Floors & Carpets Should Be a Part of the Overall Maintenance Plan

One of the primary responsibilities of a facility manager is to develop maintenance programs and conduct regular inspections, to then schedule any necessary repairs and renovations. While a floor or carpet stain may seem like the last thing you need to prioritize, maintaining the longevity of your flooring couldn’t be more important.


As employees, clients, customers, or visitors come in and out of the building they inevitably track in dirt, salt, water, and more contaminants that create serious safety hazards. If someone slips, trips, falls, or is otherwise injured in your facility you can be legally responsible.


Clean carpets and floors directly contribute to the air quality of a building. When the flooring is regularly cleaned and maintained, the dust, dirt, dander, pollen, moisture, and more that is trapped inside can be released, thus avoiding the growth of mold and mildew.


According to the Worldwide Cleaning Industry Association, 83% of those polled in a 2021 study believe that well-maintained carpets boost their confidence in a facility’s cleanliness. When you take care of the little things, it crosses over to the big things. The floors are one of the first things individuals will see when walking in the door.


Can you afford to hire a floor maintenance business? The more important question is, can you afford not to? The bottom line is that the more often floors and carpets are cleaned, the better they will look, and the longer they will last. If you don’t take proper care of them, they’ll need to be replaced sooner rather than later – resulting in an unexpected and pricy bill for you.

What Else to Know About Your Floor Maintenance Plan

Not all carpets and floors are the same, and your facility is unique. Depending on the type of tenants you have, or businesses the building houses, you may have higher or lower foot traffic than other facilities.

This is a big part of the reason why hiring a floor maintenance business is essential: We have the expertise and experience working in a variety of different industries to nail down the right cleaning schedule for you. This could be monthly, once or twice a year, or somewhere in between.

In between scheduled carpet and floor cleanings, you or your janitorial crew can take small steps to maintain the flooring: regular vacuuming or sweeping, and the placement of entrance mats, can do wonders, although they’re not enough for a comprehensive floor maintenance plan.
