Vacuuming, sweeping, mopping; it may seem like no matter how often you clean your floors, it’s never enough. Your floors encounter the most traffic and are subject to fading, stains and discoloration. Whether you have carpet, hardwood, tile or linoleum, your floors should be cleaned regularly to remove the everyday accumulation of dirt and keep it from building up.

Thinking of outsourcing your floor maintenance services? Here are five major benefits to having your floors professionally cleaned:

1. Professionals have the latest technology and techniques

Cleaning companies are trained in the latest, most time- and cost-effective techniques. By hiring professionals, your floors will receive high-quality treatment with products and equipment you may not find (or be able to afford) on your own.

LCS uses the latest technology in steam cleaning with a truck-mounted hot water extraction system. The Butler System is powered with 500 PSI of high degree water so it cleans and sanitizes. Its high capacity extraction tank allows our crew to remove the dirty water from your facility and properly dispose of it at our facility. LCS also uses Butler’s own cleaning agents, which have EPA approval. Green-cleaning carpet packages are also available.

2. Protect your assets

Some of the most expensive things in your building are the floors. If you aren’t regularly cleaning your carpets or hard floors, those surfaces will scratch, stain and deteriorate quicker over time. Investing in commercial cleaning equipment, or hiring a professional cleaning service, will make your carpets and floors last longer and reduce the time it takes to clean them over time.

3. Customers prefer cleanliness
The cleanliness of your work environment says a lot about the way you or your organization conducts business. Your business image is reflected everywhere, and dirty floors don’t reflect well on anyone. Word spreads just as fast as germs, so make sure you have the right cleaning strategies in place from the front door to the restrooms.

4. Healthy employees = fewer sick days

According to the ISSA, or International Sanitary Supply Association, sick days cost businesses more than $225 billion dollars each year and result in a 54 percent loss in productivity. Professional cleaners use steam cleaning equipment and techniques to remove dirt and stains from the deepest parts of your carpets, reducing the chance of allergies, asthma and other respiratory symptoms. By keeping your work environment clean, you will reap the rewards with fewer sick days.

5. Schedules that work for you
By hiring a cleaning company, you’re able to create cleaning schedules that accommodate your business’s needs, including after-hour requests and emergency issues. LCS offers cleaning services 24/7, 365 days a year and can provide a full range of cleaning programs tailored to fit your business’s schedule.
