Warrington states that an ever-growing number of cleaning firms have realized that they must be properly trained and equipped to clean more surfaces than carpet.
He notes that after venturing into stone cleaning, companies soon discover that there is much more to maintaining stone than simply getting it clean. While ceramic and porcelain tile floors have excellent abrasion resistance, stone floors are softer and, like carpet fiber, they can be degraded by abrasive particles.
Warrington adds that many cleaners already have a rotary floor machine or a triple-head planetary machine. This makes the cost to enter this field easily affordable.
