In addition to basic day-to-day cleaning, Viking Building Services offers many special services such as floor care, day porter services, recycling programs, power washing, and post-construction cleaning. Our floor care program is customized to your floor service needs (carpet cleaning, strip and wax, buffing etc.). Our goal as your special service provider is to enhance and then maintain the quality of clean and professional appearance that is expected from you and your customers.
STRIP AND WAX: Little dirt particles and dust inevitably get into your waxed floors, and over time the floor will begin to yellow from the light. To return your floors to the "new floor shine" and near the original condition as possible you will need a Strip and Wax. The Strip and Wax is recommended a minimum of every 12 months for low to medium traffic floors, and 4-6 months for high traffic floors. Floor service is customized for your facility. Viking’s highly trained employees are ready to help you to improve the image of your company with a professional strip and wax.
SCRUB & RECOAT: When floors lose their original high gloss look and appear dull, it is time to recoat. A planned scrub and recoat will provide optimum appearance and greatly reduce the need for stripping and waxing, saving time and money!
BURNISHING (buffing): If the floors in your building have lost their luster, it might be time to get them buffed. Buffing the floors in your facility gives them a high gloss or "wet" look. The process of buffing uses a high-speed floor machine to renew the floor surface. Viking offers many options with this floor care program to ensure the quality appearance of your floors
CARPET EXTRACTION: Water is heated to a temperature of 190 degrees Fahrenheit and mixed with a water softener. The hot water kills many types of bacteria on contact while a powerful vacuum extracts dust, dander and other allergens hiding deep inside your carpets. We do not use any harsh shampoos or chemicals in our carpet cleaning services. Shampoos leave behind residues and traces of chemicals that strip the carpet’s natural ability to resist dirt and grime. Over the course of many shampoos, you’ll find that your newly cleaned carpets seem to be getting dirtier at a faster rate. Our hot water extraction process eliminates any such residues and chemicals. It is the only safe and proven way to get your carpets fresh and clean.
TILE SCRUB: Ceramic tile can become dirty and can benefit from machine scrubbing however; it is when the grout gets dirty that customers feel helpless. To effectively clean grout, we use a combination of chemicals and specialized equipment. The chemicals are either alkaline or acids used in combination with a high pressure rinsing tool known as a turbo. This combination will restore your grout to about 85% of the original color. Sealing the grout with a protective coating is recommended after the cleaning process is completed. This will make the grout resistant to staining.
DAY PORTER: Viking provides customized day porter support services to accommodate the unique requirements of its clients day-time operations. We assist customers in monitoring traffic patterns, high impact volume areas, and restroom usage to develop a day porter program that is responsive and strategic.
POWER WASHING: Embedded stains on surfaces like concrete, stucco and grout can have a negative impact on the appearance of your location. These surfaces can be difficult to clean, because they are very porous and can conceal matter inside crevices. If they aren't removed, your working area could always look dirty and uncared for. Our personnel use high pressure solvent distributors to remove grease stains, mold and other types of sediment that are deeply ingrained in a variety of different, hard bound surfaces.
CONSTRUCTION CLEANUP: Dust, Dirt and other substances are usually the byproduct of construction work being completed. Thoroughly removing these types of contaminants is crucial to creating a cleaner and safer working environment. Viking Building Services provides our clients with comprehensive construction cleanup services that are detail oriented. We can implement a customized construction cleanup program that will leave your work site looking as good as new.
GROUNDS CLEANUP: Having a well-kept facility really is a privilege. When your grounds are attended too, your location will look outstanding. Viking Building Services can help you keep not only the inside of your location looking clean and orderly, we can help you make sure the property around your location looks great as well. Our grounds clean up services can keep your surrounding area trash free and clean so that when people visit your location; their first impression will always be a good one.
RECYCLING: Most recycling programs in office buildings consist of (1) collecting recyclable materials such as office papers, cardboard, glass and aluminum and (2) disposing them into the recycling bins at a loading dock or garbage pick-up area. Any office trash containing discarded food products, sticky pads, or tape is considered non-recyclable, as is trash collected from restrooms and food service facilities. Normally, someone in your office or building is assigned to oversee this process and ensure recyclables are disposed of properly. With our experience in this area, Viking Building Services can help you plan, implement, communicate and monitor your program.
