Overview - How To Clean Your Floors Effectively And Efficiently

Our homes and buildings are typically furnished with many different flooring materials, often including different types of carpeting and matting, hardwood floors, various types of stone or ceramic tile floors, and synthetic flooring such as asphalt, linoleum, vinyl, or rubber.

Whether you are a Homeowner or a Building Manager, and whatever types of flooring materials you have, The Dobmeier Floor Cleaning Guide has been written to help you understand the fastest way to clean and maintain your floors properly. You can also download and print the FREE Dobmeier 3-Step Professional Floor Cleaning Guide e-Book in PDF format.

Residential Floor Cleaning
Despite the occasional spill, residential floor cleaning is mostly Light-Duty Floor Cleaning, involving relatively small areas of lightly trodden flooring. Residential floor cleaning therefore requires less (and lighter) floor cleaning equipment, and fewer cleaning supplies, than Janitorial floor cleaning. Most types of residential flooring can be cleaned quickly and easily - just follow the Dobmeier 3-Step Professional Floor Cleaning Guide.

Janitorial Floor Cleaning
Modern janitorial staff have to understand and manage a wide variety of tools, supplies, and cleaning techniques to maintain Your flooring in top condition. Your floor machines, pads, cleaning supplies... must all be compatible with each other and with your flooring. They have to choose from (and manage) many different cleaning chemicals to remove different types of soiling. They have to choose and apply the right floor finishes and protectants...

Dobmeier has been providing janitorial supplies since 1950, and our Janitorial Cleaning Experts can help You find the optimum equipment and supplies for cleaning Your floors and floor coverings.
