How To Maintain Timber Floors in a Commercial Space
Timber floors are a sophisticated solution to flooring in commercial spaces, entertainment venues and offices alike. Abacus Flooring has catered to some big venues – have a look at our Projects here.
Whether it’s a large office building in corporate Head Quarters or the local real estate agents, there’s something special about having polished timber floors throughout your business’ property.
Even in restaurants and grand halls for events and weddings, these venues are made all the more beautiful with spectacular timber flooring.
Once you have these beautiful timber floors installed, you’ll want to ensure they are in pristine condition to really make a statement to visitors and customers. Here are some tips to get them looking their best and to keep them in top condition for as long as possible.
Floor Sanding & Polishing Sydney
If you’re a business operating in Sydney and you’ve had timber flooring put into your premises, then you’re going to want to take the next step in getting them into the best condition possible.
With floor sanding in Sydney, you’ll reveal a smooth surface that really turns heads. Your flooring will be sanded back so that just the smooth top surface is revealed. It takes out scratches and dents from the surface and preps the floors ready for brand new floor polish.
Clients, visitors, and guests will be impressed by your polished floorboards. They make a statement as soon as someone walks in the door.
Polishing flooring in Sydney creates a pristine look that can be tailored to the look and feel you want to create in your business. For example, if you have a wedding venue that needs timber floor polishing, then this can be enhanced by a gloss finish that is timeless, sophisticated, and dazzling.
If you own a retail or professional business, then a matte finish can be the perfect addition to the property. It gives a professional appearance to any room or space. It’s durable to wear and tear as well, so if you have a lot of traffic coming through with clients and customers, you know your flooring can withstand the foot traffic.
Keeping them Clean
Once you’ve had your business’ floors sanded and polished, you’ll want to make sure you maintain the fresh look for as long as possible. You can achieve this by taking care in how you clean the floors.
This includes cleaning up spills as soon as they happen as failure to do so can impact the finish on the polish and cause stains to the flooring. Also, putting down mats and rugs in high traffic areas such as entrances and exits is a great way to minimise the amount of dirt that is walked through onto the floors.
It’s also important to sweep the floors regularly, especially if you’re a busy commercial space or a venue that has had a lot of guests come through.
On the whole, timber flooring is easier to keep clean for busy zones than carpet tends to be. It’s easier to get out the broom than getting out an industrial vacuum cleaner which is often required for large areas.
Sweeping the floors also prevents future fine scratches. As having dust and dirt build up and moved and walked through onto the floors can cause these types of scratches. Getting that swept up regularly and on a daily basis can go a long way in preserving the life of your timber floor polish and sanding.
