Hard floor cleaning and care

Issued by: Diversey


Hard floors are found in just about every building - and for good reason. There's a huge range of choices in materials and affordability, and each hard floor material has its own unique aesthetic and practical features. Whatever hard floor materials you come across in your workplace, you need to know how to care for them so that they look great and function properly for years to come.

In the Hard floor cleaning and careĀ course, Diversey will teach you how to prepare, clean, and protect hard floors within a hospitality venue.

You'll also learn how to use chemicals to clean surfaces. For your safety, Diversey recommends you pay attention to proper dosage of these chemicals when cleaning. You can find these details on the Diversey product label on each item bottle. Each chemical also has a Safety Data Sheet. These are available at your workplace, or on the Diversey website. Links are available in each lesson in this course.
