About 30 years ago, entire countries started banning carpeting from schools. People assumed carpeting contributed negatively to several health factors in children. Now, we know this information was false. Studies have shown carpeting actually reduces airborne illnesses by trapping the bacteria. A high-grade vacuum, as used by our cleaners, can later extract the impurities.
Though carpeting has been cleared of any wrongdoing, it still may not the best flooring material for sensitive areas. Hard-surface flooring usually meets the demands of sensitive environments. These include the following: terrazzo, stone, granite, marble, and many more. Look for flooring materials that meet the current LEED certification requirements.
After purchasing the right flooring for your sensitive area, it is important your cleaning crew understands how to clean it properly. Some flooring materials should not be dust mopped, while others shouldn’t be mopped using chemicals. CSBSI understands the need to keep the flooring looking new! We are able to service and maintain your floor the right way because we have the knowledge and experience to do it!
Thanks and safe cleaning!
