How to care for Resin flooring

After you’ve invested in a high quality flooring system, it’s essential that a regular cleaning routine is adopted to safeguard your floor for years of use, and to ensure it stays in the best condition.

Not only will this will enhance the appearance of your floor by removing any dirt and contamination, but it will also ensure that your floor is kept safe, hygienic and free from slip hazards.

We recommend the following process to be followed from the initial installation of your resin floor:

  1. Undertake an initial clean once the flooring has been installed
  2. Sweep the floors daily
  3. Regular cleaning with the right products or equipment ensuring you’re cleaning up spillages immediately. The frequency will depend on the type of contamination and level of cleanliness required.
  4. Ensuring you’re carrying out intensive cleans as part of your routine.
  5. Ensure you’re removing all chemical solutions that may attack the surface

If you keep on top of your cleaning routine and regularly clean your floor, the appearance of your floor will be easily maintained.

You may come across the following cleaning issues, so here are our tips to keep your flooring as clean as possible:

Grease Removal

Grease is typically removed by Tri-sodium phosphate (TSP) or other commonly available biodegradable cleaner.

Tire Marks Removal

Scrub the area with a stiff bristled brush and using the same biodegradable floor cleaner that you are using to mop with.

Stain Removal

Some stains may require light scrubbing with a scrubbing pad if you’re unable to remove with hot water.

Stubborn Dirt Removal

When you are trying to remove stubborn dirt, allow the biodegradable cleaner to set in the area for a little while longer and do the work for you. Then completely rinse to area to remove the cleaner and the dirt.

Chemical Spills

You should always rinse strong chemicals as quickly as possible completely from the surface. Chemicals allowed to dry on the surface typically become more concentrated as they dry.  That may cause the chemical to get concentrated enough to stain or even attack the seamless floor or seamless floor coating.
