Posted by ServiceMaster | September 5th, 2019 | Categories : Commercial Cleaning, Floor Cleaning, Office Cleaning

Office floors are big investments, which can be quickly ruined by sun damage. Business owners can save thousands of dollars on pricey floor replacement with just a few preventative measures. Our expert janitorial staff here at ServiceMaster Twin Cities want to share our top five ways to prevent sun damage on our client’s flooring:

Rearrange the Furniture

One easy way to prevent sun damage to your flooring is to regularly move around the furniture in your office. While this won’t completely stop the sun from damaging your flooring, it will help slow down any fading of your flooring (and furniture). Always make sure your furniture has scratch preventative covers on the legs before moving. Don’t feel like moving your furniture? Swap out your area rug!

Add Window Films

Installing window films are a cost-effective way to filter out damaging UV light from the sun while also helping prevent breakage and heat loss. Films like these still allow light to enter your office space, but without the harmful rays that can damage your flooring. If you are considering installing new windows to your office, there are many energy-efficient options that will help protect your flooring and lower your power bills.

Use a Floor Sealant

Sunlight will affect every flooring differently based on the color and the material – some wood lightens, and some darkens. Flooring manufacturers are always working to find new solutions to help them improve their product. Currently, there are a variety of floor sealants that provide an extra later of sun protection.

Install Curtains or Awnings

The most common solution is adding awnings or window covering, like curtains, to your office space. Awnings are a good solution for the areas of your office space that receive the most sunlight. You don’t have to keep the windows covered at all times but taking preventative steps like these will help you avoid unattractive sun-damaged flooring.

Professional Cleaning

Flooring, especially hardwood flooring, need to be cleaned periodically to keep it looking nice and protect it from foot traffic. Overtime dirt and dust will build up on your flooring, which can lead to serious damage. Professional floor cleaning services work efficiently to get the job done fast and properly. We provide a variety of floor care services – from carpet cleaning to grout cleaning, we can help!
