Winter weather and salt are your floors worst enemy!

Winters in and around Annapolis, Maryland are one of the worst enemies of commercial buildings — ice-melt compounds; especially those that are salt-based are hard on all floors, even carpets. Commercial carpet care changes in the winter months primarily because of the salt. The entrance areas of all facilities end up a mess, with clouding of the carpet’s color due to salt residue.

Ice-melt residue is not only unsightly, but also damaging to carpet fibers, and other types of flooring.
Facilities need a salvage cleaning at least once in the winter, using more chemicals and brushing to bring the salt out of the fibers. If these extra deep cleanings are not done, in many cases the carpets are damaged due to the stripping of their chemical compounds because of the salt’s harshness.

Carpets aren’t the only surfaces at risk for damage, hard-surface flooring can also be affected.
The salt in many cases will strip the urethane coating off of wood and tile floor surfaces, leaving them susceptible to damage from moisture, abrasion and dirt.
