Spring is nearly here, which means now is the best possible time to give your garage flooring some extra attention. While spring cleaning for commercial garages typically means organizing your inventory and re-stocking supplies, it’s just as important to make sure your commercial flooring is in good shape. Cracks and divets can spell out disaster if you’re not careful. That said, here are a few spring maintenance tips you can use to get your garage floor in great shape for the rest of the year.
It’s important to make sure you’re using the right cleaners on your garage flooring. Concrete floors are best cleaned with a pH-neutral cleaner, and you want to avoid using harsh cleaning products like ammonia or bleach. This is because harsh cleaning products can react with your concrete flooring and can damage the surface of the floor. Swing buffers and auto scrubbers are ideal for areas that have heavy foot traffic while microfiber cleaning pads are great for dry and wet mopping.
Concrete flooring may be tough as nails when it comes to handling heavy foot traffic, but it still needs to be cleaned daily to prevent dirt and debris build-up. Fortunately, concrete floors are relatively easy to clean. Start by dry-mopping the area with a microfiber mop to remove any dust, dirt, and debris from the floor. Once you’ve dry-mopped, you can go through and wet-mop with a pH-neutral cleaner. To prevent staining the concrete, it’s recommended to clean up any spills on your garage floor as quickly as possible.
