Elevator floors are prone to dents and cosmetic wear due to daily foot traffic from a near non-stop flow of riders. The same applies albeit to a lesser extent to home elevators. Learn the basics of elevator care in Beaverton and how simple adjustments can help you maintain a pristine floor surface.
Install a Mat at the Entrance
Install a mat at the foot of every elevator entrance. Include a note asking riders to wipe the sole of their footwear before stepping in the elevator. This is especially important on rainy and snowy days when riders can attract mud, water, and other outdoor contaminants.
Add a Rug
For home elevators, place a rug that covers the floor without much excess slack. Even home floors like carpets, hardwood, and tile can have encrusted dirt and debris that makes its way to the elevator floor. A rug can intercept the debris and is easily removable and washable.
Install Rubber Interlocking Mats
Rubber/foam interlocking mats are inexpensive, and they connect together like a jigsaw puzzle. These mats are also non-slip, making them a great choice if riders often consist of seniors. These mats are also a great way to protect floors when you need to transport a heavy object.
Clean the Floor Often
Clean the floor often just as you would clean the floor in the rest of your home or facility. The cleaning method differs depending on floor type. For carpets, vacuum often and steam clean. You should also consider carpet stretching from a professional if you notice slack. Other common elevator floors like hardwood, tiles, epoxy, and PVC flooring all have their respective cleaning requirements.
