Exacting hygiene standards:

Cleaning floors made easy.


In times of SARS-CoV-2, our hands and door handles should be cleaner than ever. We disinfect, maintain social distancing and intensify cleaning activities. After all, hygiene is the be-all and end-all in preventing the spread of disease.

The floor – usually the largest surface in the room – tends to play a secondary role when it comes to cleaning. This is a mistake. Because the floor comes into contact with outdoor footwear over the course of a working day, and thanks to gravity, almost every particle of dirt sooner or later also ends up on the laminate, carpet or tiles.

This makes the floor a gathering point for germs and dirt, especially in offices, workshops and warehouses where many people come and go and move around every day. When cleaning, under no circumstances neglect the floor. Our tips show you how to do it.

Taking a closer look: ground zero for dirt, germs and microorganisms.

Would you eat from the floor? Probably not. No matter how well maintained a room is, you just can't avoid dirt. But what actually accumulates on the floor over the course of the day?

  • Coronaviruses are spread by droplet infection. When a person sneezes or coughs, the virus either lands on another person or sinks to the ground within a two metre radius. The good news: due to the lack of moisture, it cannot proliferate there.
  • Do you take your shoes off when you enter the office? Probably not. Soles of shoes that have trodden the pavement are the ideal carrier for uninvited guests. Pathogens such as E. coli bacteria adhere particularly stubbornly to rubber treads, and are distributed over the office floor when walking. From there, the bacteria spread to people, for example, when they adhere to bags that have been set down, thereby causing infections.
  • The office is a busy place for at least eight hours a day. Hair is tussled, heated discussions occur, and sometimes a sandwich gets eaten. That's why there are everyday residue and non-infectious microorganisms on the floor: e.g. stones, crumbs or hair.
  • Along with people, the equipment we use at work also contributes to pollution. Manufacturing machines produce large to minute particles in operation and due to wear. Computers and printer stations produce the meanwhile notorious fine dust, which can then be found both in the air and on the ground.

A cleaning roster for hygienic and clean floors.

Hygiene measures only function if they are implemented correctly. This is especially true if you are not only aiming for a visually spectacular result, but also want to break chains of infection. No two floor coverings are the same. Rather, each type of floor requires special cleaning and care.

  • Keep yourself safe: when doing any wet cleaning work, wear gloves that prevent your hands from coming into contact with the cleaning agent. These gloves should be, and remain, dry on the inside.
  • Use the vacuum cleaner correctly: when vacuuming up potentially harmful substances such as chemicals, wood dust or solvents, be sure to choose a suitable industrial vacuum cleaner and follow the instructions for use.
  • Use high pressure cleaners correctly: set the mechanical, thermal and chemical parameters correctly to ensure high pressure cleaning is done correctly.

Regular and professional cleaning of floors extends their service life, protects employees from health risks and boosts well-being. You can find lots of products suitable for this in our hygiene shop.
