Minimising downtime during commercial flooring projects


Downtime during commercial flooring projects can be disruptive to your customers and even highly detrimental to a business’s bottom line. There comes a time when your premises’ floors may need some work done and the last thing any business owner would want is their routine floor maintenance severely impacting production or leading to store closure for any duration. With the current economic climate, now more than ever companies are reliant on foot traffic to ensure turnover. Closing down a store or manufacturing plant for a few days to allow for a new flooring system to be installed and cured is just not a viable option. Therefore, there is a need to be strategic in the planning and execution of maintenance at commercial premises’ – and choosing the right flooring solutions company is absolutely imperative.

Ways that disruption/downtime reduces profit

  • Factories and manufacturing industries often find themselves with target outputs that require the production line constantly running efficiently with little room for error or planned/unplanned downtime. Any such disruption leads to target outputs not being met and could cause supply shortages.
  • Restaurants, hotels and other hospitality businesses need people regularly coming in to keep these industries alive, and sometimes even a short disruption in operating hours can impact their bottom line.
  • Malls and shopping centres thrive on foot traffic and every single business in their premises relies on customers being able to access the mall. A large mall’s scheduled floor maintenance can lead to loss of profits for multiple businesses located in their premises. Sometimes working after hours, especially during lockdown curfews, is not an option.

So, how then can commercial premises’ look to upgrade or refurbish their floors with minimal disruption?
