Why do Floors Need Regular Vacuuming?
Floors are subject to frequent abuse, especially in commercial and industrial settings. Accumulation of dirt and grime, grease stains, mud stains and more can damage a floor to such an extent that regular sweeping cannot restore. Moreover, the odds are that bathrooms would have clogged drains and perennially wet floors. All of this mandates that industrial and commercial floors be vacuumed periodically over and above the regular cleaning process.
Equipment Needed for Vacuuming:
- Stain Solver
- Industrial Wet/Dry Vacuum Cleaner
Process of Vacuuming:
- Clean the Floor: Brush away debris and other large specks of waste from the floor
- Apply a Stain Solver: This should be mixed with water, and applied over the stains and spots, as per the instructions that come with the stain solver.
- Use a Wet Dry Vacuum: Run an industrial wet dry vacuum that sucks away not just specks of dust, but also liquids.
- Cover All Corners: Run the vacuum hose over the surface, reaching into corners, concealed places and holes. It is best to start from the far end and work your way closer, vacuuming in strips.
- Vacuum All Places Which May Have Dirt: It may also be expedient to run the vacuum cleaner over lamp shades, curtain hooks, grooves and other places in the walls where dirt may accumulate.
- Bathrooms: When using the wet/dry vacuum cleaner in the bathrooms, make sure to run the vacuum over
- The sump pit, to remove residual dirt, muck and grit
- Drains, to unclog debris and dirt that may have seeped in and impede the flow of water
- Emptying the Vacuum Cleaner: Lift the lid and empty the bucket, when full. This depends on the size of the vacuum cleaner. Smaller models hold half a gallon of liquid, whereas large scale industrial versions can hold up to 20 gallons of liquid and debris.
The powerful air intake of the industrial wet dry vacuum gets the job done without much preparatory work. Such vacuum cleaners also have a better suction and bucket system that allow them to suck up liquids.
