Providing a Clean, Healthy Environment
A surface that “looks” clean doesn’t mean it is clean. SOLID will assess a facility’s needs and provide a customized surface care plan on a planned, periodic schedule that works best for the facility and eliminates downtime. We can help with:
Going beyond the standard spray and wipe approach that can cause cross-contamination, our trained technicians can effectively and efficiently clean the hardest-to-reach surfaces with electrostatic sprayers. The electrically charged disinfectant clings to and envelopes every side of vertical and horizontal surfaces, dramatically increasing the effectiveness of killing harmful viruses.
Resourced & Ready
Staff shortages have caused many janitorial companies to be inconsistent with the level of service they can provide. SOLID is a national team of self-performing surface care experts. We currently have 35+ office locations with a team of 500+ surface care experts caring for over 700 million square feet of commercial flooring annually across all 50 states and Puerto Rico – and growing!
Expert Care for All Flooring Types
Educational institutions are often on venerable campuses, including historic buildings with floor surfaces that were popular when the building was built. We can restore, repair, and maintain surfaces like stone and terrazzo frequently found on older campuses.
High foot traffic from students and staff can take a toll on floors and carpeted areas. Our deep cleaning and maintenance methods leave floors not only clean but also dry and safe, preventing slips, trips, and falls.
Reduced Maintenance Time and Costs
Often found in high-traffic areas, vinyl and resilient floors are easily restored by deep cleaning and applying specialized sacrificial wear layers. Hence, the floors look their best while ensuring longevity. Save staff time and lower maintenance costs with high-performance coatings that eliminate the need to strip and wax resilient floors continually. And SOLID is affiliated with MISBO, so you receive additional savings if you are a member school.
Students, educators, and staff are reassured, and satisfaction increases when their surroundings look and are clean and healthy. We can work with your institution to provide antimicrobial coatings to reduce nosocomial infections. SOLID provides deep cleaning and surface care services that eliminate odors and deliver a favorable and lasting impression for all occupants.
Back To School With Confidence
Our specialized surface care solutions ensure your school meets the highest cleanliness levels, restoring confidence in students, parents, and staff as students return to school.

Daily vacuuming with a high-quality vacuum to remove debris from the surface and deep in the carpet will improve indoor air quality (IAQ) and will help to maintain the carpet’s color and performance. We also suggest a quarterly deep extraction clean. Dry extraction is a great option because there is no downtime, and no wet floors to cause potential hazards. Unlike hot water extraction that can leave dirty water behind, the dry polymer traps dirt and debris and then it is vacuumed away.
Additional care is needed to extend the life of the vinyl, preserve aesthetics, and protect your investment. Planned, periodic maintenance can include deep cleaning, applying wax and specialized sacrificial wear layers, and high-performance coatings. The frequency of this maintenance should be based on usage and foot traffic in the area.
SOLID’s expert craftsman can apply innovative, semi-permanent high-performance coatings to resilient flooring. This keeps floors cleaner and healthier, retains their appearance longer and at reduced maintenance operating costs.
Yes, if you’re considering deep cleaning, polishing and restoration, stain removal, applying a topical and impregnating sealer, or a high-performance coating, SOLID can help. We can also assist with grout cleaning and coating, repairing chipped or cracked grout, and adding sealants and colorizations to restore and protect grout lines.
Yes, whether architectural or ornamental, we can assist with routine maintenance or total restoration of your stainless steel, bronze, nickel and silver plating. Scratch removal, re-graining and highlighting, field oxidation, finish changes, oiling or lacquering, restoration, and protective coatings and coverings are a few services that we offer.
Seating and cubicle panels are often treated like napkins. It’s not pleasant to think about, but that is the reality of eating, drinking and sitting at a desk or a commons area for hours at a time. Then add on the complications of a pandemic. A restorative clean with proven methods and chemistries will improve the appearance of textiles and give employees and travelers confidence that they are in a clean and healthy space.
