Though Charlotte is beautiful when it’s snow covered, winter can cause additional headaches for your facilities. Like Tyrion Lannister, Stone Building Services is “the gift” to fight winter! The ice melt put down near building entrances WILL be tracked through the doors and onto the floors. This will leave an oily residue that not only causes a major slip hazard, but may also cause major damage to the floor surface.
Stone Building Services has a few suggestions when the snow and ice arrives this season:
- Be sure all walkoff mats are in place and clean prior to the ice/snow event
- Have building staff mop the floor at these areas often during the day to prevent falls
- For multiday events have the walkoff mats cleaned with soapy water and vacuumed dry
- To prevent major damage to the floor surface call Stone Building Services and schedule a Weather Cleanup Service!
Our crews will perform a full deep clean of the stone in the affected area to remove the oily ice melt residue. After the cleaning, the crew will then hone/polish/buff the area as needed to repair any damage that has already occurred. Once complete, a high quality stone sealer will be applied to provide futher protection from the elements.
As always, Stone Building Services looks forward to working with you and your team to ensure a beautiful and safe facility.
