FRAMINGHAM, MA — Staples Facility Solutions, a Staples business and one of the country''s largest providers of facilities solutions and services, recently compiled a list of tips for facility managers and school officials that will help them maximize the time between floor and carpet replacement, according to a press release.
Few places present the challenge of maintaining floors in a high-traffic, low-budget situation like today''s schools: These facilities — from the elementary school level through college — are inundated with hundreds, if not thousands, of sneaker- and boot-clad feet and sliding desks and chairs each day, the release stated.
Do your homework: Not all flooring and carpeting is the same and, therefore, not all cleaning procedures will be effective; in fact, the wrong procedures can result in a multitude of problems, the release noted.
According to the release, you must remember to be sensitive to the fact that cleaning — especially in schools — is a very labor-intensive profession: In order to get the most out of janitorial staff and maximize investments, provide employees with informative educational sessions.
