Floor Maintenance Philosophies

Scott Bartlett

BY Scott Bartlett /

There are two philosophies when it comes to floor maintenance. The first is to maintain floors on a regular basis. The second is reactionary – when floors start to look less than ideal, a cleaning crew is rushed in to get it back to tip-top shape only to watch its condition begin to deteriorate again. The truth is, proactively maintaining floors is always better than reacting to wear and tear or worse, a catastrophe. When you have a scheduled maintenance program in place, whether it's quarterly, monthly, or even weekly, you’ll actually save more time and money and be better off in the long run.

How to Better Approach Safety at Work

Cindy Eastep

BY Cindy Eastep /

The implementation of workplace safety measures is often reactionary. If someone slips or falls, a company might begin to consider different flooring options. If a shelf or desk topples over, a conversation about proper spacing and weight distribution might be initiated. But for those companies with ample years of experience handling safety precautions, these are things that are thought about long before a design goes into place.

You'll Be Floored to Know What Floors Can Do

Continental Office

BY Continental Office /

While it may not seem like it on the surface, floors are a critical component of our lives. If you think about it, we interact with them on a daily basis. Not only do they affect us physically, but did you know they can influence our mood and behavior? For example, you can warm up a space with carpet or carpet tile, making people feel comfortable and at home. When chosen carefully and installed correctly, commercial flooring can create the ideal space for associates and clients. That’s why it’s important to really consider what you’re investing in your floors.

Luciano Carfagna

BY Luciano Carfagna /

How long does it take to have something custom-built? Obviously it depends on the product itself, but the larger it is often the longer it takes. What if you could have an entire space custom-built to your needs in less than a month? That’s the power of prefab construction!
