So, you've got your access floor and want to clean it? You need to make sure that you avoid corrosive materials. Access floors are truly amazing inventions. They keep you and your co-workers safe from cables that lie in wait on the floor beneath and they make it very easy for the service technicians to conduct maintenance on any problem areas that may arise. The great thing about the access floor is, of course, the fact that you can conduct any maintenance that you need, without it interfering with the general work flow of the office.
Now, as with any floor, your access floor needs to be cleaned thoroughly from time to time. The tip of it, depending on what finish it is, needs to be cleaned and maintained in the same way that you would look after a normal floor. The carpet finish needs to be vacuumed often and the tiled floor needs to be wiped down with a damp cloth.
Here is where things get a little trickier in terms of cleaning and maintenance. Because of the way that the access floor is constructed, you need to make sure that no liquids leak from the surface of it, through to the bottom. The reason for this is, of course, the fact that you do not want water to land in the metal pedestals or stringers. This will lead to rusting and weakening of the joints and maybe even a collapse of the floor if it is allowed to get bad enough.
For the same reason, using corrosive chemicals on the floor is also not the best idea in the world. Not only will the corrosive chemicals start to eat away at the surface of the floor, but they will also start to potentially eat away at the metal too. Now, besides the floor collapsing, you also do not want to have a floor that has been visibly corroded, as this can start to look cheap and tacky. Rather use the gentlest materials that you can find in order to look after your carpeted floor.
