Providing a Clean, Healthy Environment
A surface that “looks” clean doesn’t mean it is clean. SOLID will work to assess your institution’s needs and provide a customized surface care plan on a planned, periodic schedule that works best for your schedule and eliminates downtime.
Enhanced Cleaning Protocols for Public Transit
Bus and train stations, waiting rooms, ticketing areas, and the conveniences they offer: Public seating, toilets and bathrooms, on-site retail stores, fast-food outlets gift shops, elevators and escalators: any one of these high-touch, high-traffic areas can become an infectious disease hotspot.
Going beyond the standard spray and wipe approach that can cause cross-contamination, SOLID’s 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 to kill harmful viruses.
Resourced & Ready
Staff shortages have caused many janitorial companies to be inconsistent with the level of service they are able to 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!
Public rest rooms are one of the most-used areas of the transit center and require proper odor elimination processes. Unpleasant odors can increase passenger’s fear of serious health concerns and create an unsatisfactory experience.

Reduced Maintenance Time and Costs
Often found in high-traffic areas, vinyl and resilient floors are easily restored by performing deep cleaning and applying specialized sacrificial wear layers so the floors look their best while ensuring longevity. Save staff time and lower maintenance costs with high performance coatings that eliminate the need to continually strip and wax resilient floors.
Increased Passenger and Staff Satisfaction
Passengers and staff are reassured, and satisfaction increases when their surroundings look and are clean and healthy. We can work with your facility to provide antimicrobial coatings to reduce nosocomial infections. SOLID provides deep cleaning and surface care services that eliminates odors and delivers a favorable and lasting impression for all occupants.
Frequently Asked Questions
High-touch surfaces such as turnstiles, ticket machines, handrails, and so forth — have to be thoroughly cleaned at least once a day, more if possible, to reduce the risk of getting and spreading infectious disease. SOLID offers deep cleaning and antimicrobial treatments that supplement your daily janitorial protocols. We go beyond the standard spray and wipe approach by using electrostatic sprayers that effectively and efficiently clean high-touch and hard-to-reach surfaces.
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.
