How to Remove and Prevent Salt Stains on Your Floors This Winter
The messy winter weather can wreak havoc on your business, inside and out. While snow, ice and wind are part of the problem, salt is one of the most damaging culprits during the winter season.
When it comes to keeping your floors clean, there are a few things you can do to remove and prevent salt stains. Here are some expert tips on how to keep your floors looking great this winter season:
How to Remove Salt Stains
Removing salt stains from your floors doesn’t have to be an expensive fix. While there are plenty of expensive cleaning solutions available on the market, one of the best ways to get rid of salt is with a natural solution that you can make yourself. By simply adding white vinegar to a bucket of warm water, you can easily remove salt stains from your wood and tile floors. White vinegar can also help to prevent salt stains from forming on your floors.
Mixing a white vinegar solution in a five litre bucket costs about $2, making this a far more economical solution than buying a chemical treatment that could cost ten times as much. It also helps to keep harmful chemicals out of your office environment so you and your co-workers can keep breathing easy.
How to Prevent Salt Stains
If your business experiences a lot of salt stains during the winter months, it might be time to take some preventative measures to ensuring that your floors stay salt-free.
One of the best things you can do is to encourage your employees to keep a pair of indoor shoes at the office, if possible — and keep a tray for winter boots and outdoor shoes near the door so your team doesn’t track in salt and snow in the first place. Rugs and mats are another great way to stop salt stains in their tracks.
If keeping your office clean during the winter is becoming too big a job for you to handle, it might be time to hire a cleaning service to take care of it for you. Take a look at some of the janitorial services offered by Huber Building Maintenance and see how we could help!
