Scuff marks. Those black marks can make the nicest of floors look horrible. Essentially, scuff marks are caused by items being dragged across the floor surface. Scuff marks can be hard to control in an office setting, but all hope is not lost. There are some easy steps that you can take to reduce the number of scuff marks that appear on your tile floors.
Top causes of scuff marks
1. Shoes. Wearing shoes with black soles will cause scuff marks
2. Dragging furniture.
3. Rubber. Athletic shoes or other types with rubber soles wreck havoc on tile floors.
Scuff mark prevention strategy....control what you can.
Don't Drag Furniture
Of the top three causes of scuff marks, this is only one that can be controlled in a small degree. For example think about how often furniture is dragged across a break room floor. The chair is dragged out from the table for someone to take a seat, then dragged again to sit closer to the table.
Repeat this hundreds of times during a given work day and those little scratched and black scuff marks are going to appear. In addition to chairs, tables and vending machines are also dragged across time quite often. Even an office chair with wheels makes several rolls across the floor while employees go about their tasks.
It is impractical to eliminate this behavior, but there are a few preventative measures:
Stick to a maintenance schedule
The best way to keep your floors looking great is with proper maintenance. While daily mopping will not remove scuff marks, frequent spray buffing and strip and wax services will keep scuff marks at bay. The traffic and wear that your floors receive will dictate how often these services are needed. In general, spray buffing is recommended bi-monthly while strip and wax services are recommended quarterly.
