Monday''s Ask the Experts question from a cleaning professional on the International Custodial Advisors Network
(ICAN) "Ask the Experts"
page: We have a problem with the floors in the produce area of a grocery store. After cleaning at night, employees would come in with carts full of veggies that drip onto the floor. Lettuce and other veggies are thrown onto the floor. Then they would clean up with a hose and a squeegee. The concrete paint and finish have gotten worse and started breaking in the veggie area. I would like to know if this would cause the finish to soften and start to break up like a natural stripper and whether we should use a stronger finish and would it make any difference. I have tried to get them to throw waste into a trash can and use mats to prevent drips onto the floor, but no one seems to care or listen.
