DIY TIPS FOR YOUR FLOORING SURFACE


5 Tips for maintaining your flooring surface

Whether or not you see it this way, the truth is, the floor in your warehouse, or your delicatessen, or your cool room, lab or food preparation area is an asset to your business. The rationale for this statement is simple: IF your floor breaks down, is unsafe or unhygienic, then you will need to shut down to to bring the floor back to a working condition and ensure your floor complies with relevant legal and OHS requirements. Worse still, if you are forced to shut down till the floor is fixed, you start to experience loss of revenue and this is where your floor starts costing you big money.

As with all your investments, your floor requires a bit of TLC. We've put together a list of things you can do to ensure your floor's lifespan is extended as long as it can be before you need to consider new flooring options.

DIY Tips for Your Flooring Surface

Clean the floor regularly

If you have an expensive piece of machinery, or a company car, you will undertake to service it regularly to ensure it operates at its optimum for as long as possible. Failure to do that will mean break downs and increased bills to fix it.

The same goes for your floor. If you don't clean it, grit, acids, chemicals and other debris will build up and damage your surface making it either unsafe or unhygienic (and smelly more often than not) or both.  You will then be required to undertake wider repairs or replacement of the floor.

Our tip is to clean the floor regularly (you will know better than we will what that means based on the nature of your business). Make sure you don't use abrasive chemicals which were not recommended for cleaning. If you do, your floor will suffer.

Teach your staff what is acceptable and not acceptable on your floor

If your floor is a showroom then it is unlikely you will want pallet racking on the surface, and similarly, if your floor is in use in a kitchen you will not want a forklift in the kitchen. Make sure you and your staff all know what is acceptable and not acceptable on your floor. Don't put your floor under undue stress and it will thank you.

Conduct regular inspections of your floor

You check the oil in your car, you monitor the quality of the products you produce, so you should check the floor on which your business is literally built. If you identify the floor is dirty you can clean it, or if you see signs of damage you can address them before they become more widespread. Remember, prevention is better than a cure.

Don't DIY flooring fixes for specialised surfaces

It may seem appealing or even easy to repair a flooring issue you have identified during a check. However, failure to prepare the area correctly prior to implementing a solution can result in you causing more damage than you think.   

If you fail to clean the surface, or prepare it properly your 'fix' may trap bacteria and moisture below the surface, causing the surface to bubble and crack very quickly (not to mention become unhygienic). Similarly if you use the wrong preparation to fix the surface, then you will likely just be creating a band aid solution which needs fixing sooner than you could think possible.

If you use machinery, ensure that your surface is resilient to that type of traffic

Seems obvious, right? Sadly a lot of people don't stop to think about this. They have a beautiful vinyl floor but need to take delivery of a large pallet of materials. So they let the driver use the forklift to offload the materials. Sadly, the twisting and turning of the tyres will rip the vinyl up.

Tiles are similarly prone to damage under heavy traffic. Our advice, make sure you think about the surface prior to conducting what may seem to be routine procedures. If you need to use forklifts for example, an epoxy floor trowelled to the right thickness is going to be required. In the same way it's horses for courses, different industries and business require different flooring solutions.

Different Types of Commercial Waterproofing | Remedial Building Services

Learn about the various types of commercial waterp [...]
If you think that because a building is made from concrete and measures have been taken to protect it that it will thus be impervious to water, you may need to think again. Protecting a building from water is something that people often take for granted. They think concrete structures are impervious to water, but sadly, they are not. Chemicals and minerals which help give concrete its strength, can also be the proponents which react with chemicals in water and other liquids which ultimately lead to concrete spalling.
And though you may believe that building has adequate drainage to prevent the build-up of water, and thus minimise the chance of your foundations being affected, did you know that most waterproofing issues we fix are to the flat roof areas and the decks which sit above carparks? If these spaces are above residential spaces such as in an apartment, the impacts are real and tangible for those residents, whereas if the affected area is a commercial building or carpark, the impacts are often financial.
In this blog, we want to provide you with an overview of different issues caused by water and then provide insights into the different methodologies/options available to you for the protection of those areas subjected to water.

Not all buildings are the same and thus, no two “repair jobs” are the same. Sometimes a simple piece of handyman work will suffice, other times, there is need for structural repair. What we want to do, is help you distinguish between structural repair and general repair as the two terms are not interchangeable really.
And we write it to serve as a guide for owners and building managers to identify when to call for general repairs and which building conditions are deemed appropriate to call in structural repair specialists – like Remedial Building Services.

TOP 10 MOST MISINTERPRETED TERMS IN STRUCTURAL REPAIR


Structural repair is hardly a new industry nor new concept, but in recent years, the phrase “structural repair” has become almost commonplace. From apartment owners, to strata management through to commercial building managers, when people want something repaired as often as not they label it as a structural repair item and not general maintenance.
Strictly speaking, structural repair is a technical term used in construction and engineering. It is generally incorrect to use it as a synonym for terms like renovations or home improvements. However, due to the fact this activity involves repairs of all sorts, people almost immediately assume that it means the same thing. It is, after all, making changes to a building, apartment, or any property to align its construction and condition to existing health and safety standards.
But what does the term structural repair really cover? To help people understand what terms to use and when, we have put together this rough guide on what various terms mean.

BUILDING MAINTENANCE AND REPAIRS

Irrespective whether we are looking at a large high-density residential block, a commercial tower or a warehouse, exposure to the elements, poor construction and general wear can all play contributing parts to structural and aesthetic issues with your building.  And while a fresh coat of paint can give your building an instant makeover, it does not hide underlying structural issues which need greater attention.  In fact, the simple act of covering over problems can lead to larger, more  complex issues which end up costing more in repair.

Remedial has been providing integrated building maintenance and rectification services for over 45 years, working with engineers, strata managers and owners’ corporations to understand exactly what is required and to offer a solution that addresses both the issues you can see, and those you cannot. Our range of building maintenance, rectification and upgrade services include:

Building Upgrades

Much like structural repair, a fresh coat of paint can lift the features of your building, but closer inspection will reveal aged materials which can reduce its value.
Rather, if you are looking to modernise your building to improve its value and aesthetics, why not consider the benefits of a building upgrade.

Upgrades can consist of a complete overhaul or a simple upgrade of select features, ranging from the purely aesthetic; such as replacing old iron balustrades with modern frameless glass, to upgrades that address both structural issues and building appearance, such as the installation of new weather rated windows. Additionally, if building owners wish to completely revamp the outward appearance of their building, they may opt for a façade repair and upgrade.

We have  experience refurbishing the external facades of some of Sydney and New South Wales’s more prominent buildings – such as the UTS building on Broadway, or the Myer Building in Brisbane – and we can work with you to turn your existing building into something more contemporary and current. 

From the removal of old iron balustrades and replacement with frameless glass ones, or the installation of new weather rated windows, through to replacement of delaminating bricks, replacement of structural reinforcing or building rendering, speak to the Remedial team about how we can help.
