If you’re a building contractor and need a cleaning contractor to partner with,
we can handle all phases of construction clean up from the initial broom out to the
final detail cleaning.
If you’re a building owner or manager and are doing some remodeling in your
office, just give us a call to let us know your schedule and we’ll work with you on getting
the space ready for occupancy. If you’re going to be moving into a new building, we can
move with you and provide the construction clean up at the new site so you’re ready
to move in on time.
First impressions count when it comes to the cleanliness of your building. No one wants to see dirty carpet, so to maintain your building and keep your carpet from becoming damaged prematurely, the carpet mills recommend you clean the carpet at least once per year; sometimes more depending on traffic.
We are certified through IICRC (Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification), which means you can rest assured your carpet is in good hands. As part of our cleaning proposal, we will make recommendations on the frequency and type of carpet cleaning your carpet should receive.
There are many factors in deciding the type of carpeting your business needs, such as the amount of traffic or proximity to entrances. Whether the business is an office, hotel/motel, apartment complex, restaurant, education or medical facility, Service Solutions Center has the commercial carpet which will add beauty, versatility, and style to your business.
We have guidelines to best help you decide on the type of commercial carpeting you will need. Our cut / loop and commercial loop carpets blends well with any decor, looks great between vacuuming, and the durable long-wearing surface pile is engineered for high traffic areas.
Avoid trip-hazard liabilities while saving your commercial carpet by having us repair it for you. When we’re finished with your commercial carpet repair, you can be assured that people can tred your carpet safely.
Shedding and Fuzzing
Both are usually present in natural carpets and more than in synthetic ones. Shedding pertains to the normal progression of unfastened fibers that is natural for a new carpet while fuzzing pertains to foreign obstruction like dirt that damages the carpet’s fiber filaments. If either is present in your rug or carpet, you need to vacuum the carpet more regularly.
When dealing with stains, try to get rid of as many solid and semi-solid obstructions as you can. Then use a clean dry cloth to take out as a good deal of liquid. Instead of scrubbing, try blotting it out. Next use another dry cloth and mix a small amount of rubbing alcohol or non-bleach detergent in removing the stain.
Rippling is usually evident through high moisture content. Make sure to use a dehumidifier to counteract rippling and your carpet should be re-stretched.
Unfortunately, you can only do so much for carpet burns. Hopefully if the burn is manageable, you can spruce the burned fibers and achieve a convenient result. If too much area is burned and has reached down the fiber, all you can do is to cut out the burned carpet and patch it to cover the damaged area.
The chances of flooding depends on the location and weather of your area. Flooding is usually a painstaking carpet problem. If the flood water is clean and the carpet is dried in 12 hours, your carpet is safe and functional. If not, you will need to seek professional assistance.
Resilient floors come in many textures, colors and styles. These products are manufactured in two styles: sheet and tile.
VCT Vinyl Composition Tile: VCT comes in 12” tiles, is a porous floor material that can hold up well to strong alkalines, acid, and solvent spills and spots if cleaned up right away. Manufacturers recommend waiting 5 days after installation before doing any maintenance to the flooring. When sealing or applying floor finish to a new VCT floor, the factory finish needs be removed. VCT tile must be sealed with a sealer or sealer/finish.
Sheet Vinyl: Sheet vinyl comes in 6’ to 12’ widths, available in many colors and styles. It is installed in both commercial and residential locations. The seams are chemically welded or heat welded. The flooring can be easily scratched. It is resistant to solvents, acid and alkaline spots when cleaned up right away. Sheet vinyl can be sealed with a sealer or a sealer / finish.
Many commercial buildings are now installing stone floors such as ceramic tile, granite, marble and terrazzo. Although these floors may not need the frequent care that resilient tile floors need, they still need to be maintained regularly in order to keep the stone and grout looking good. If not maintained properly, the floor and grout will start to look dull and dirty.
We will recommend a floor care program that is safe for the type of flooring you have in your building. The program we recommend will depend on traffic levels and desired appearance.
Marble flooring: Marble is a metamorphic stone and is one of the most expensive floor coverings made. Marble is a re-crystallized limestone and can be identified by the veins running through it. Marble is soft and scratches easily, and acid products will etch the floor.
Granite flooring: Granite is an igneous stone and contains many different minerals such as quartz, feldspar and potassium. Granite is very hard, tough and durable, but it stains easily if not sealed. It must be sealed with a penetrating sealer.
Travertine Flooring: Travertine is a sedimentary stone, which has a lot of holes in it and must be filled with a synthetic resin or cement based product. Travertine most often has a honed finish but will have a floor finish on it. If a topical coating is applied it should be a water-based finish and be specifically made for natural stone.
Slate flooring: Slate is a metamorphic stone, which comes in common colors such as black, gray, and green. It will have many finishes such as sand, rubbed and honed. Slate is porous and should be sealed. It will often have floor finish applied as well.
Terrazzo flooring: Terrazzo was very popular in the 1950’s and 1960’s and we saw a comeback in the 1990’s. Terrazzo is made of 30% Portland cement mixed with about 70% marble or granite chips. It is available in 12” x 12” and 4’ x 4’ squares. Terrazzo can be sealed with an impregnator sealer or finished with a topical product.
Concrete is one of the least expensive floor types, yet it can take on a designer style and made to resemble brick, marble, wood, slate and many other floor types. Concrete can be stained, stamped, stenciled, dyed, painted and polished.
Services we perform on concrete floors:
- Daily and routine cleaning
- Periodic and restorative cleaning (power wash)
- Restorative cleaning (stripping, sealing, finishing).
Ceramic tile floors are installed in residential and commercial buildings, indoors and out. Ceramic tile floors come in many different shapes, sizes and colors. They are very durable and after the initial cleaning and sealing with an impregnator or penetrating sealer they can be low maintenance floors. Topical coating can be applied to un-glazed ceramic tile flooring.
Services we perform on Ceramic tile and grout flooring:
- Daily and routine cleaning
- Periodic and restorative cleaning (scrubbing, sealing)
Solid Wood Flooring: Solid wood flooring is one complete piece of wood from top to bottom. It comes in strip sizes of 2” to 3” wide at random lengths or plank sizes that are 3” or 8” wide in a fixed or random width and length. Both are 3/4” thick with a wear layer of 1/8”.
Parquet wood flooring: Parquet wood flooring is usually a 12” x 12” square with endless choices of geometric designs such as standard, herringbone or Fontainebleau.
Engineered wood flooring: Engineered wood flooring comes in 3 to 5 layers of wood, laminated together with a cross-grain lamination construction that makes it more dimensionally stable (it does not expand and contract like a solid wood floor). Engineered wood flooring comes with a pre-finish that will not need any initial sanding or finish required. It can be screened once.
Laminate wood flooring: Laminate wood flooring is made from several layers of wood by-products bonded together under pressure. There is a surface layer in which a picture can be applied to the top and sealed with an aluminum oxide finish. It’s easy to clean, difficult to stain, durable and long lasting if given proper care. It cannot be refinished.
Sparkling windows are a reflection of your business. As your full-service building service contractor, we will wash your windows both inside and out, up to a two-story building.
When you receive your window washing quote, we will suggest a schedule for washing the windows in your building. In most commercial buildings, outside windows will be washed more frequently than inside windows.
