Scuff Marks and Commercial Floors: How to Get Rid of Them

scuff marks

How do you remove scuff marks from commercial floors?

Scuff marks can be irritating eyesores and difficult to remove. Luckily, in this blog we have a useful guide to how best to tackle scuff marks. There are many different kinds of flooring materials that can be scuffed. But how can you get them out of wood, tile, and concrete? Read on to find out more! 

How to Remove Scuff Marks from Wood Flooring

Wood flooring is common not only in commercial floors, but also in schools as well. Cleaning scuff marks from wood flooring is more difficult than it could be otherwise, because many cleaning solutions can actually damage the finish on wood flooring. Refinishing wood flooring can be expensive and time-consuming, so to avoid that consequence the idea is to be gentle. Also keep in mind that you should be careful with cleaning tools, which might leave unsightly scratches. So what do you do?

Start by cutting an X into an old tennis ball. Attach the ball to the end of a broomstick. This can then function as a makeshift scuff mark eraser. Orange oil cleaner can help erase the mark too if the ball method isn’t enough. Before you scrub, you must first sweep the floor first. This way, dirt, sand, and other debris won’t get mixed into the floor.

How to Remove Scuff Marks from Tile Flooring

Although commercial tile flooring is exceedingly difficult to clean, you can still remove scuff marks. For light scuff marks, the tennis ball trick works. Darker scuffs will need more intense methods. Cleaning spray that can unstick hinges (you should know the brand name) can be soaked in for about ten minutes. Then the scuff mark can be scraped away after it dries. The next step is to clean your floor, following the normal procedure. This way, you can prevent any slips and falls from a slippery floor. Cleaning machines can help sweep up any soil or moisture that might be on the floor.

How to Remove Scuff Marks from Concrete Flooring

Concrete flooring is most common in commercial garages. Many office buildings are also starting to adopt concrete flooring as well. For smaller marks, use a simple scrub pad holder equipped with a long handle and a swivel head. Orange oil cleaner helps on larger scuffs. Do be sure to clean the floor after you are done, to prevent it from being slippery.
