It seems every condo or commercial lobby you walk into in the metro area of Chicago has taken a real beating this winter. The constant foot traffic in and out of the buildings has only added to the dull and dirty look of these once- pristine looking lobby floors.
Residents, employees and guests drag in snow melt, oil from the CTA, grease, dirt and pollution droppings that become embedded in your marble, terrazzo, and concrete, salt that can scratch your limestone and travertine floors. You may be experiencing this with the floors in your home. Although mats and carpet runners help, they are not the complete answer.
With more snow and cold coming in the next few weeks, you may want to think about getting that date for a pro to come and “spruce up your lobby floors” for the upcoming spring. The pros are busy, busy in the midst of spring time.
