Hey folks,
I'm trying to figure out a good way to clean the flooring (vinyl tiles) right in front of the main control board. I mopped up some coffee stains the other day, and scrubbed up some tape residue as well.

This left one bright, clean spot in a sea of dirty tiles, and now the clean spot stands out.

I don't see running a full size floor scrubber next to the main control board to get everything up to snuff, and I don't see anyone doing it by hand on overtime either.

So here's my question:
How do you guys keep the floor by the main control board clean?
Is there some Electro Magnetic Discharge- safe floor scrubber out there I should be aware of? Do you use swiffer wetjets or some house hold product along those lines? Do you scrub it by hand from time to time? Does a cleaning crew come in during outages?

Or do you just mop up the occasional coffee stain and let it be dirty? I'm sure I can obtain

Thanks,
Torg (RO)

Torg,

We use carpet.  No tile.  And I bet you can guess when we replace the carpet.  Hint: Once every two years or so.  ;)

Oh don't even get me started on the carpet that starts three feet from the control board. Like yours, it needs to be replaced every couple years; in reality it took a year just to get it cleaned- which didn't help much.

On the bright side, I can say that's a strategy adopted 'in the industry'

Maybe if you bought carpeting that matches the color of the dirty carpeting, you wouldn't notice it as much and it wouldn't have to be replaced as often.  /s

Could always just use unqualified sailors aux operators to get on all fours and wash and wax it with sponges...another time-honored nuclear strategy  ;)

If you think that the floor in front of the panel is filthy, then I strongly suggest you not look inside. ;)

That's actually surprisingly clean. The filters on the air intakes to the MCB are well maintained.

We replace our carpet tiles everytime INPO rolls through.  :-\

We have a dark purple "at the controls" carpet strip in front of all the boards that defines what essentially is a two foot zone for non-operators to stay out of.....The dark color hides the stains very well.
