Product Care and Maintenance
The Polyflor XL PU range of floorcoverings incorporates a polyurethane surface treatment, which protects the floorcovering by resisting soiling and scuffing. This protection facilitates a reduction in the intensity of the construction clean and provides the foundation for the ongoing maintenance regime. This easier cleanability offers maintenance cost savings when compared with non-treated materials. The following maintenance instructions are designed to minimise the cost factor, without compromising the long-term appearance of your floorcovering
- Remove all loose debris
- Ensure that all traces of adhesive are removed from the surface of the floorcovering
- Mop sweep or vacuum to remove dust and grit
- Damp mop with a neutral detergent.
- If required, dry buff with a 1000 rpm plus rotary machine fitted with a suitable clean pad
The following recommendations are provided as a guideline, and the frequency can be changed to optimise the appearance
- Mop sweep or vacuum to remove dust and loose dirt
- If required, spot clean to remove stubborn marks with a neutral cleanser.
- If required, dry buff to restore finish.
- Assess the appearance of the floor.
- If required, scrub with a scrubber dryer fitted with suitable pads, and using neutral cleanser (pH 7 to 9).
- If required, dry buff to restore finish
Application of a Floor Dressing
- The polyurethane surface treatment will provide an initial protection to the floorcovering. However an application of a metalised polish may be required eventually to provide extra protection. The level and intensity of traffic and soiling will determine how soon the polish will have to be applied. For polish free maintenance see the Polyflor PUR range of products. For polish application please follow details of the procedure below.
- Using an applicator and tray, or Kentucky mop with wringer and bucket, the first coat should be applied thinly and evenly across the floor, to within 200mm of the skirtings. It should then be left to dry. This normally takes approximately thirty minutes, depending on the ambient conditions and the thickness of the coating
- When the first coat is dry, a second coat should be applied at right angles to the direction of the first. Subsequent coats should be applied at right angles, and the final coat should be applied right up to the skirting
- Two to three thin coats are usually sufficient to provide excellent resistance to abrasion, scuffing and removal of black heel marking. However, be guided by your own periodic assessments for the particular location
- In order to minimise costs, subsequent polish applications may be applied only to traffic paths
- Periodically – generally every six months – assess the appearance of the floor. If there is an unacceptable build-up of polish, this should be stripped and reapplied, as per the instructions above
