What to Expect: Tile is clean but may be worn in traffic areas. Tile stains will remain if we are not able to remove them with spot cleaning techniques. During the winter, foot traffic will bring moisture and dirt into the clinical areas during the day. Clinical areas will be at the highest cleanliness level at 8:00 AM, with possible deteriorating conditions during the day. The cleanliness level is based on the APPA Staffing Guidelines - Level 2.
