A good floor mopping program will keep buildings clean and reduce labor costs. This includes protecting the floors, equipment, and filters. It can also reduce your frequency of expensive floor maintenance (i.e., floor stripping, waxing & polishing) and reduce allergy irritants and other building related sicknesses. Finally, a good mopping program will present a clean and professional image.
