Gymnasium Floor Problems
All of the floor systems have about the same problems. Tape is one of the biggest. If you have any tape on any type of coating on your floors, tape will pull the finish off no matter which tape you use if it’s over 24 hours.
If you need to add lines try shoe polish, tempura paint or the best practice is to pain the lines on it permanently.
Some of the other problems are street shoes. Street shoes can leave permanent black marks on uncoated floors. We recommend using only gym shoes. One of the biggest issues we see nowadays is water damage and not reporting of water damage.
If you see any water damage it is best for you to contact your insurance agent even if you’re not filing a claim. Insufficient maintenance on athletic floors is costly to the owners. It is easier and cheaper to maintain them than to replace them.
Schedule daily maintenance and annual maintenance in cooperation with your staff and coaches – talk with your coaches, work out schedules where you can get in and do your daily maintenance and weekly maintenance and annual and have it scheduled. The best way to do this is by utilizing a PM system such as SchoolDude.com.
