Redefining the Goal

When Commercial Floor Care was first conceived, it was done so with clarity and a purpose: to provide professional commercial contractors and facility managers with a publication focused on addressing their concerns and questions regarding floor care and maintenance.

That was 1999. Three years later, the purpose is as clear as ever, but the vehicle's been a little neglected. Think a Ford F-150 logging 9,000 miles without an oil-and-filter change; the fundamentals are still sound, but some attention better be paid to it ASAP.

The goal of CFC is to provide professional cleaning and maintenance technicians in the commercial environment with articles, news and product information that has an immediate impact on the manner in which they do their job. This isn't some abstract look at theory and how to achieve happiness in the working world; the information found in CFC is doing its job if it catches the eye of a facility manager or commercial contractor somewhere out there and makes them think, "What if…?"

That said, I'm always thinking "What if?" CFC is coming up on its four-year anniversary; it's a publishing infant, and like any infant it has plenty of room to grow. If the content you find here is lacking in any area, whether you think it significant or not, you're the person I want to hear from. A publication devoted to an industry is only as valuable as the industry perceives it to be; the plan is to make CFC the most valuable tool in your professional arsenal.

To that end, inside this issue of CFC you will find information on stone floor care, rest room maintenance and maintaining entries and lobbies, as well as some of the latest product innovations for the commercial floor care industry.
