No Maintenance Floor Care Solutions
Wood grained grooves provides peaks and valleys for soil to deposit.
Factory finishes, while very tough, cannot be repaired once damaged.
Most manufacturers will not warranty damage to floors due to the failure to follow recommended maintenance steps, use proper floor protectors, or from damage which has occurred to the product as a result of abrasions from external elements: sand, grit, incorrect maintenance methods, etc.
Restoring Heavily Soiled Floors
- Prepare an auto scrubber with:
- Nylon brush for textured surfaces
- Blue or green pad for smooth surfaces
- Fill solution tank with an alkaline cleaner such as Prominence (1:256)
- Clean floor using the following procedures:
Make first pass with solution on, pad or brush down and scrubbing, squeegee up, vacuum off.
- Allow solution to dwell on floor for 5-10 minutes
- Make a second pass with solution on, pad or brush down and scrubbing, squeegee down, vacuum on.
- Use a deck brush to hand scrub heavily soiled areas.
- If soil remains, apply stripping chemicals designed for linoleum, allow to dwell for 10 minutes, next agitate with an auto scrubber or swing machine fitted with pad or brush, finally vacuum up slurry with auto scrubber or wet-vac.
- Always follow label directions
Always consult with the manufacturer of your floor to be sure the above procedures will not void your warranty.
