Post-Installation Cleaning

It is essential that wet adhesive be removed from the surface of the flooring immediately – using a damp cloth.

Initial Clean

·         To allow the adhesive to set, do not wash the floor for 72 hours after installation.

·         When the adhesive has set, wash your floor with a neutral pH floor cleaner (available from Hubbers). Follow the manufacturer’s recommendations.

Maintenance

·         Vacuum or sweep your Vinyl floor daily to remove any dirt or grit. This will prevent it scratching the floor or becoming ground in.

·         Wipe up any spills immediately.

·         Wash your floor regularly using a neutral pH floor cleaner, diluted as per the instructions on the bottle. Use a clean mop and for stubborn dirt and/or grime use a soft nylon scrubbing brush to work the dirt out. Make sure any excess water and/or dirt is removed with a clean cloth.

·         For larger areas automatic cleaning appliances (i.e. scrubbing machine) can be used with your pH neutral cleaner and a red 3mm scrubbing pad. Ensure any excess water on your floor is wiped away with a cloth.

Steam Mops (of any kind) should NOT be used on this flooring – using them will void the manufacturer’s warranty.

Scratch Prevention

·         Use felt pads on all chair and table legs.

·         Use dirt stop mats at all external doors. Ensure these are kept clean in order to stay effective.

·         Do not drag heavy appliances or furniture across your floor.

Special Instructions

·         Avoid using aerosol sprays or silicon-based products, as they may result in the floor becoming slippery.

·         Rubber can permanently stain any vinyl floorcovering. Avoid using rubber backed mats, furniture feet or wheels.
