Taking Care of Your Resin Flooring
After deciding to invest in a high quality flooring system, it’s a MUST that a regular cleaning routine is undergone to keep it in top condition. -Heavily trafficked or highly visible areas need to be cleaned more often than areas which are seldom used. Removing dirt will enhance the appearance of your floor but it will also ensure that your floor is kept safe, free from slip hazards and hygienic.
You should always sweep the area to remove any loose debris, whilst doing so keep an eye out to see if there are any areas that may require individual treatment such as scuff marks, or oil spillage’s. Below are tips to help with certain issues you may come across;
Stubborn dirt removal – allow a biodegradable cleaner to sit for a while. Then completely rinse to remove the cleaner and dirt.
Grease removal – Grease is mainly removed by Tri-sodium phosphate (TSP) or you can buy another commonly available biodegradable cleaner.
Scuff and Tyre marks – as well as using a biodegradable cleaner scrub the area with a stiff bristled brush.
Chemical spills – if chemicals are left and allowed to dry on the surface they become more concentrated which could cause a stain or even attack the seamless floor or seamless floor coating. Therefore it is important to ensure that you rinse away strong chemicals as quickly as possible.
Care should also be taken to use the correct brushes, Nylon brushes must not be used, and also that dirty equipment , ie mops does not clean but merely redistributes the dirt.
Do not mix up cleaning liquids, always follow the manufacturer’s instructions and use only recommended cleaning products which are suitable for cleaning resins. By keeping on top of your cleaning routine, the appearance of your Resin floor will be easily maintained.
