Ciprus announces completion of 4th Edition of 'North American market for commercial flooring maintenance' report
Ciprus, a Connecticut, US-based market research and consulting firm, has announced the completion of the 4th Edition of 'The North American market for commercial flooring maintenance' report.
The research, which lasted almost a year, consisted of detailed telephone interviews with 1,400 business establishments and building service contractors in the US and Canada in offices, retail, healthcare, hospitality, education, manufacturing and transportation. Interviews were conducted with small, medium, large and very large establishments.
The study documented more than 50 flooring maintenance activities in the past year including labour, consumables and equipment utilised to perform maintenance in 29 application areas within the establishments. Maintenance chemical and equipment brands were captured as well as the decision-maker, product or equipment source and the frequency and volume of usage.
Some 16 flooring surfaces were included in the research; carpet, carpet tile, concrete unfinished and polished, ceramic tile, laminate, linoleum sheet and tile, luxury vinyl tile, solid vinyl tile, vinyl composition tile and sheet, stone, terrazzo - as well as factory and site finished wood.
The 4th Edition of this research provides an historical perspective on earlier research completed in 1999, 2004 and 2009 and consists of summary colour graphics, matrix tables and in-depth analysis arrayed in 12 flooring surface chapters, as well a comprehensive summary and projections to the total US and Canadian Markets.
The 4th Edition captured 5,418 separate flooring maintenance activities, 4,106 consumable usage activities and 5,230 equipment usage activities.
The study focused on 29 specific application areas including washrooms, food service counter, dining and back of house, corridors and hallways, public assembly, offices, guest rooms, healthcare patient rooms interventional, therapy, diagnostic and nursing stations as well as lobbies, recreation areas, retail showrooms and cash wrap, classrooms, auto services areas, warehouse areas, vehicle parking areas, dorm rooms, manufacturing areas and others.
Over 62 consumable product categories were documented in this comprehensive study, including cleaners and shampoos, disinfectants and sanitisers, finishes and waxes, pads, bonnets and disks as well as strippers. In addition, 27 types of equipment were captured and included extractors, auto scrubbers, buffers and burnishers, power scrubbers and power sweepers, sanders, strippers and resurfacers as well as vacuums, mops, wipes and others.
Charter subscribers to the completed research included a prestigious list of North American and international cleaning chemical producers and equipment producers as well as flooring producers.
