When entering your facility, one of the first things that clients and employees will notice is your floor. This is why hiring the right commercial floor cleaning company is crucial. Keeping your floors clean can help visitors to have a more positive first impression of your building, and ultimately your organization.

But what exactly do people notice? Studies have found that “distinctiveness of image,” or DOI, plays an important role in our perception of flooring cleanliness.

DOI means how clear an image is when reflected from a surface. For example, if you are able to read the text of a sign that’s reflected in your flooring after your NJ commercial cleaning company has done its job, the floor has a high DOI. If reflection of objects is blurry, then the floor has a low DOI.

Of course, not all flooring surfaces are able to provide the same DOI. A glossy surface will reflect better than a dull one. And the state of the flooring is important; dings and scratches can also negatively impact DOI. But these are things that your commercial cleaning company can also help with.

In order to maintain the highest DOI possible, it’s important to maintain regular maintenance of your floor, using cleaning products designed to not just improve gloss but also to protect the flooring surface itself. Many businesses are surprised by the results they can achieve with the right commercial cleaning partner.

Focusing on protecting your cleaning surface, not just cleaning it, can improve perceptions of your facility – and also help your flooring to last longer. Talk to your New Jersey commercial cleaning company to find out if your plan is achieving these goals for your organization.
