Simple Swaps: 3M Floor Care Innovations

3M Floor Care Innovations

Now, more than ever, your role as a facility manager is crucial. You are on the front lines of maintaining the health and safety of your facilities. One important piece of your cleaning routine remains floor care. However, floor care can be time-consuming and labor-intensive, and you need quality products that perform while saving time and labor costs. 3M provides innovative floor care solutions that rise to the challenge and make for simple swaps in your cleaning and maintenance routine.

Increase Shine with Less Effort

If you want to create a bigger impact with less effort, the Scotch-Brite™ Clean & Shine Pad delivers superior results in less time. Utilizing 3M’s abrasive technology, the Clean & Shine Pad lets you clean and shine in the same step, using only a low-speed scrubber. When used for daily cleaning, it works to improve the gloss and reflection on most coated and uncoated floors, including VCT, LVT, vinyl, rubber, stone, terrazzo, marble, granite, and bare polished concrete. Additionally, swapping in a Clean & Shine Pad reduces or eliminates the need for burnishing, saving you a step and money. Adding the Scotch-Brite™ Clean & Shine Pad to an existing workflow is an easy and sustainable swap for traditional cleaning pads.

Trap Dirt and Pathogens

When dusting, it’s important to use a product that will not just push dust around but trap and remove it. 3M™ Easy Trap Sweep & Dust Sheets use a light adhesive to grab 800 percent more dirt, dust, and sand compared to flat fringed cotton dust mops or the common household sweeping dust cloth brand. Both sides of the 3M™ Easy Trap Sweep & Dust Sheets can be used to dust, eliminating waste while reducing cost. It provides consistent and dependable results with less manual effort, making it a smart swap in your cleaning toolkit.

Improve Appearance Simply

If you desire a one-stop cleaning system that allows you to dust, mop, and apply floor finish with one tool, the Scotch-Brite™ Professional Mopping & Floor Finish Applicator System is a must-have swap. Utilizing the system decreases the number of tools you need and improves the floor’s appearance in less time. With the system, switching seamlessly between tasks is possible. You can use less product, with less effort, and fewer tools while still accomplishing more.

For facility managers, minimizing time and labor while maximizing quality is the ultimate goal. Fortunately, this is possible with a floor care routine that leverages effective and easy-to-use solutions.
