FSG had been called to see if there was anything that could be done to repair these stair treads and landings. The client had thought about replacing them, but decided to explore some options. The facility was willing to incur the expense of the replacement but FSG felt there was a potential savings to the facility and to the environment by not replacing them and instead restoring them.
When we arrived there was a patient that had just been moved out. We had asked EVS to clean the room out prior to us starting. These photos show contrast in a broad view of what the area looked like before and after we cleaned the floor.
As you can see from the before picture the floor is loaded with dirt and particulates. In the after photo it’s very clear that we are able to remove everything and this also demonstrated the sheet vinyl is still in good shape.

See phenomenal before and after photos from the sheet vinyl and ceramic tile floors (wait ’til you see the grout photos!) and learn the process used. See photos here.
We can all agree that profitability, regardless of industry, is the end goal for any organization. While turning a profit can be a challenge, increasing the bottom line is a more common obstacle for many flooring maintenance businesses. For most, the first step to boosting profits is improving efficiency.
Floor care is an industry heavily driven by labor, from the top down. Increasing efficiency throughout the entire organization is the first step in raising profits. But how do you do it? We reached out to three flooring maintenance experts to learn how establishing company standards, defining best practices, and building upon proven procedures can help cut down on waste and yield better earnings.
