Vinyl Safety Floor Cleaning in Bristol

Vinyl Safety Floor Cleaning in Bristol

The job requested

We were called by a cleaning company to see if we could assist in safety floor cleaning in Bristol. The floor in the ground floor office, entrance and storage area had become deeply ingrained into the grain structure and was in need of a thorough clean.

The owners had spent several hours themselves, but to no avail as all they had removed was the surface soiling. The products they were using were also caustic and there was a fear for the surface of the floor.

We were asked if we thought we could make an impact on the floor as they didnt think it possible to get thoroughly clean

Moving forward

From the test patch the owners were impressed and booked us to carry out the work.

Carrying out the work

On arrival, we immediately removed all loose items of the floor, swept and microfibre dry mopped it to remove all debris and particulate from the areas.

Next, we made up a pre-spray of Oleonix Full Spectrum Cleaner at 20:1 and pre-sprayed an area of approx 3 metres square. We left the spray to “loosen the soil” for a good 10 minutes whilst we prepared the equipment.

To agitate the spray and carry out soil removal whilst vinyl safety floor cleaning, we used a combination of a Rotowash machine and a 17″ Rotary fitted with a green pad. We began then in sections to agitate and remove the soiling, from deep within the grain structure.

We continued the process throughout the floor, using the rotary machine on the larger areas where there was more room.

When vinyl safety floor cleaning, areas were cleaned back and then thoroughly rinsed with water. The biggest advantage of these methods are:

  • Eco-safe products minimise water used
  • The cleaning product cut down time with it’s efficiency
  • The products work to Nano levels, meaning soils are taken away to a much smaller level and to a greater depth.
  • Due to cleaning efficiency more soil is removed, making it longer to eventually re-soil
  • No strong odour or smell
  • No effect on the flooring as no caustics, detergents, phosphates were used.

Conclusion

The Owners were extremely pleased with the results from our vinyl safety floor cleaning and have booked us in to carry out annual cleans to keep the floor looking good.
