Roll Out the Red Carpet

Spring is finally here! It’s time to open things up, air them out and get rid of all the bits of winter that are sticking around.

One of the hardest hit areas is the floor. Winter boots bring snow, slush, sand and salt inside with them. Floors are particularly important to keep clean because they make an impression on people. Surely, you’ve heard someone remark, “the house was so clean, you could eat off the floor”.

Having buildup, grime, grit or residue makes a terrible impression on people and quite possibly their sense about the rest of the building or business. Unclean floors can harbor foul odours, furthering the problem.

If you’re anxious to get to your spring-cleaning, we will provide some advice with a focus on caring for your floors.

Dirt and foreign particles can get embedded in carpet and rugs, making them wear prematurely. So, daily vacuuming is essential. As mentioned earlier, winter can be hard on floors. Our Counteract Carpet Salt Stain Remover can help by effectively dissolving stubborn and unsightly salt deposits on carpets.

Spring is a good time to do a deep clean, including stripping the floors. Our Betco Extreme floor stripper will penetrate and remove multiple coats of floor finish with minimal labour. It requires little, if any, scrubbing and greatly reduces the time it takes to strip a floor.

Maintain your floors daily with a pH7 Neutral floor cleaner. It can be used on any water-safe, hard surface. It emulsifies and suspends dirt and grime from the floor with a mop or autoscrubber. A little goes a long way with this highly concentrated detergent making it an economical choice.

If you have high gloss floors, keep them in pristine condition with a product like Betco’s Easy Task Spray Buff. Simply spray on floors and polish with a spray buff pad to easily remove black heel marks, scuffs and scratches, leaving a wet look gloss. This product will leave the floor finish hard and durable yet slip resistant. It will also help reduce stripping and rewaxing procedures by over 75%.

To keep things looking tip-top, finish your floors with Betco’s Untouchable Floor Finish. This product will give you the highest gloss and wear with the least amount of labour. Untouchable is non-scuffing, durable and detergent resistant. It is suitable for all floors and works well with either spray buffing or high speed buffing.
