For any institutional and commercial facility the most visible elements are their floorcoverings. The condition they are in often dictates the overall perception of the facility.

For these reasons and the costs involved in specifying, installing, and maintaining flooring, maintenance managers must make smart decisions to ensure these products perform as expected and remain aesthetically pleasing.
