Question: The tile in our break room has lots of scuff marks. If the floor is being mopped every night why aren't the scuff marks being removed?
This is a very common question. The expectations of daily mopping are usually very high. Mopping plays an important but small role in the general maintenance plan for tile floors.
The purpose of daily moping is simply to remove surface stains like spilled coffee and surface dirt tracked in by shoes. It does not add shine to the floor, remove scuff marks, clean grout or clean dirt that is embedded into the tile.

To remove the scuff marks from the tile, a more advanced level of tile maintenance is required. If the tile has a sufficient coat of wax then the scuff marks can be removed with a spray buffing service. With this service a trained floor maintenance professional will use a high speed buffer with a special abrasive pad to remove the scuff marks and scratches on the floor. The buffing service will also bring up the shine on the tile.
We recommend including high speed buffing into your tile maintenance plan. Not only does it keep your floors looking great by removing scuff marks and increasing shine, the service can also help to extend the wear of the wax. This means you may be able to strip and wax less frequently depending upon the traffic the floors receive. But most importantly, you'll be happier with the appearance of your tile floors.
If the tile floors does not have a sufficient coat of wax, then the flooring will need to be stripped (if there is any wax) machine scrubbed, and three coats of high quality acrylic wax applied.
While both of these services and generally not included in basic janitorial service, they are essential in preserving the visual appearance and life of tile floors.
