A better solution for terrazzo flooring

A better solution for terrazzo flooring

If you have been looking for a better alternative for finishing and maintaining your terrazzo flooring other than never ending stripping and finishing, we may have the answer for you. The product is called TRX from Essential Industries. There are other options available to finish these floors such as grinding and polishing, or do nothing to the floor. There are problems with either of these options including leaving the floor open to staining. The grinding and polishing method is very labor intensive, requires regular burnishing with expensive diamond pads and does not have the brilliant shine that most people are looking for.

Using ice melt

Using ice melt

I know you don’t want to hear it, but Ice melting season is here.

Many times I am asked. What ice melt can I use that won’t kill my grass or won’t hurt my concrete. The truth is that any ice melt when used improperly will cause bad things to happen. My advice is that you follow the manufacturer’s directions and you will have much better results.

Proper hard floor care sometimes overlooked

Proper hard floor care sometimes overlooked

I am very particular when it comes to hard floor care, whether it is VCT, sheet products or some type of stone surface.   Whenever I enter a facility I constantly find myself looking down.  What I see is a very wide range of results in floor maintenance.  Some of what I see is pretty well maintained but some is less than acceptable in my view.

Frustrated with Green Products?

Frustrated with Green Products?

How many of us have tried to do the right thing for the environment by using green products only to be frustrated by them not working as well as the products that we have used in the past?  This was one of our dilemmas also.  We knew that we as a company had to get into the “green cleaning products” but nothing made any sense to us.  Either you had to use ten times the amount of product to do the same job or it cost five times more than the products that we currently sold and nobody was going to buy them.

We're Going Green!!!!

We're Going Green!!!!

How many times have you heard that from an employer, a company, a government agency or any number of other people that we deal with on a daily basis?  But what does it really mean.

To tell you the truth it can mean many things to many people.  Green is something that happens in stages from the person who is recycling for the first time to the person who will not use any disposable product that cannot be composted or will not use a cleaning product that contains any manmade chemicals and everywhere in between.  Because of these wide differences green is what you want it to be and what you feel comfortable with.  It can and should be done in small steps (my opinion). If you move to quickly into green you may run the risk of having employees, your children, your spouse, customers and even yourself becoming frustrated with the process.

So in conclusion, when you decide that you want to "go green" question not if it is good idea, but how far and how quickly you want to get there.
