Cleaning and Maintenance:
Our rubber tiles do not include a protective finish when shipped from the manufacturing facility. It is highly recommended that the newly installed rubber floor be protected using a tarpaulin or other cover until the floor can be cleaned and/or sealed. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for proper application of the floor sealer (if applicable).
INITIAL CLEANING: Do not wash the floor for at least 5 days after installation. An initial cleaning needs to be done to remove any dirt and grit from the job site and to prepare the floor prior to applying a sealer or finish. Failure to clean properly will cause bonding issues as well as the entrapment of dirt in the floor. The floor should be cleaned with a neutral cleaner using steps 1-4 below.
- Thoroughly sweep or vacuum the floor to remove all loose dirt, dust and debris.
- Apply a neutral cleaner to the floor with a mop (or automatic floor scrubber). Follow that manufacturer's instructions.
- Use a wet vac or mop to remove cleaning solution.
- Rinse floor with clean, cold water. Remove all water with wet vac or mop. Allow rubber floor to dry thoroughly.
- This item will have a Rubber smell that can not be washed off and will dissipate over time.
Our rubber tiles are resistant to oil and most chemicals, but we still recommend that you clean any spills as quickly as possible. To avoid possible damage to the flooring, the following should never be used on the floor:
- Steel wool or abrasive brushes
- Abrasive or alkaline cleaners
- Solvents of any type
Restorative Floor Maintenance:
When noticeable accumulation of dirt and other contaminants become embedded in the rubber floor finish, a quality floor stripper should be used to remove the existing finish. Areas typically needing to be restored include high-traffic walkways, tight or confined spaces, and along baseboards. After the floor stripper has been applied and removed per the manufacturer's instructions, a neutral cleaner should be applied to the stripped area (following steps 1-4 under Routine Cleaning above). Once the rubber flooring has been cleaned and allowed to dry, a sealer can be used to restore the finish of the treated area.
