Back to work Safely

I used to say meeting with business owners and seeing their passion for their business was why I do this. I enjoyed getting a glimpse into their industry often behind areas the public sees or warehouses where all their products are kept or made. In recent months all that has changed. Now why I do this is so that small businesses like ours can return to work, so that they can provide for their families, so they can stay open, so they can thrive, so that consumers will continue to shop local. But it isn’t just businesses we are helping, its families that rely on their jobs to feed their families, it’s the noble feeling that because of the services we offer employees are able to return safely to work. Our industry is changing, innovation is taking place and we are able to provide valuable services to combat this virus. I’ve never been more proud of our industry.

  3. Once our floor tech is finished, the floor is hard enough to walk on but any store equipment, racks should not be rolled or dragged on the floor or the floor finish will come up. Please remember floor finish takes 24 hours to properly cure. 

  4. The floors under the isles that were moved may still have a darker shade based on what was on the floors under the isles such as grease, grime, buildup, floor finish. They will be clean but not look new.
