Proper maintenance and care for your commercial flooring preserves and protects it from everyday wear. To ensure the long-life of your floor, Shaw will help you establish a commercial maintenance program and train for staff on proper care methods.


The starting point of a successful maintenance program is selecting a flooring product that meets your specific performance requirements. Overall, it is important to understand that the performance requirements of the commercial flooring must reflect the performance needs of the space. Your Shaw Contract Group sales representative will help guide you in selecting the best product for your environment.


The flooring maintenance program should be considered as part of the buying decision. If proper maintenance is neglected, the floor’s appearance will suffer, shortening its useful life and increasing long-term costs. Preventative maintenance and developing a maintenance schedule are the two primary ingredients of performance planning.


With an appropriate maintenance program in place, the next step is to follow it. An explanation of recommended cleaning methods, and guidelines for your flooring are detailed in maintenance guides ready for download below.

Spots & Spills

Unlike planned maintenance, spot and spill removal is the reaction to an unplanned incident and should always involve immediate action. Our maintenance guides will take you through the steps to achieve the best results.
