Protection and Maintenance of Your Floor

Lasting beauty can be achieved through purchasing a quality floor covering and providing proper on-going
maintenance.

  • Furniture should be moved onto the newly installed floor using an appliance hand truck over hardboard
    runways, or pulled on towels/blankets into position and be fitted with felt pads to protect your flooring
    surface.
  • Avoid exposure to long periods of direct sunlight. Close blinds or drapes during peak sunlight hours. Floor
    covering subjected to excessive heat and light is subject to thermal degradation. Use appropriate
    precautions to protect the floor.
  • Oil or petroleum-based products can result in surface staining. Do not track asphalt-driveway sealer or
    automobile-oil drips onto the vinyl floor covering.
  • Use non-staining mats. Rubber will discolour the floor or cause it to turn yellow.
  • Frequently moved furniture should be equipped with felt pads to avoid scratching the floor. Heavy furniture and appliances should be equipped with non-staining large surface floor protectors. Furniture with castors or wheels must be easy swiveling, large surface non-staining and suitable for resilient floors. Do NOT use ball type castors as they can damage the floor. For office chairs soft-wheeled castors must be used.
  • Use floor protectors under furniture.
  • Use walk off mats at entrances to prevent dirt and grit from being tracked on to the floor.
  • Sweep or vacuum the floor regularly to remove loose dirt. Do NOT use vacuums that use a beater bar or turn beater bar off.
  • Do NOT use electric brooms with hard plastic bottoms with no padding.
  • Clean up spills immediately.
  • Micro mop (damp) as needed using clean water and a diluted floor cleaner. Do NOT use harsh cleaners or chemicals on the floor. Do NOT use abrasive scrubbing tools. Do NOT use detergents, abrasive cleaners or “mop and shine” products.
  • Vinyl Flooring, like other types of smooth floors, may become slippery when wet. Allow time for floor to dry after washing. Immediately wipe up wet areas from spills, foreign substances or wet feet.
