Let’s face it; office floors can take a beating.
Perhaps your office space has carpet that could use a commercial carpet cleaning service, or floors that show scuff marks everywhere, and are dull that could use a good strip and wax. Whatever the case, a clean office floor contributes heavily to the overall look of your office environment.
Here’s a handy tip from “How to Clean Stuff” (www.howtocleanstuff.net/how-to-remove-scuff-marks-from-flooring/) that may help clean up your office floors, and perhaps an idea to use in your home as well:
Use a tennis ball to remove scuff marks from VCT floors. How to: take a plain tennis ball and carefully cut a small “x” into the top. To avoid injury, do not hold the ball in your hand as you cut it, but rather place it on a firm surface or use a vise grip. Once cut, insert the top of a broom handle into the “x” and using the tennis ball end of the broom rub the scuff marks out of the floor.
But, what if the stain on your office floor is something worse, say, black tar from the parking lot or street? If it's a VCT floor, first try a painter's scraping razor to get the most of it up. An adhesive remover may be tried to get the rest, but beware, it may dull the finish. Try that first on a section of floor hidden from plain view and if it doesn't dull, then go ahead and use it on the stain. Tar on stone flooring is a piece of cake to clean up. I recommend using Goof Off (http://www.goofoffproducts.com/find-a-retailer). Just a bit of that with a paper towel and the tar is gone!
