Read the following instructions and precautions that can prove to be very effective in protecting and maintaining your new Ecoflor Acid Stain Overlay floor:
– USE good quality fibre mats at entrances that can trap dirt, dust and sand particles to prevent external grit and abrasive particles producing scratching, scuffing and general wear.
– FREQUENTLY clean the floor with a broom or vacuum cleaner to prevent build up of abrasive particles.
– ALWAYS use suitable glides, rollers and castors as well as furniture bearing pads or felt pads to avoid scratching or indentations under immovable and movable items such as chairs.
– NEVER slide heavy objects directly over the floor (the use of soft or woollen cloth sheets or similar is recommended).
– AVOID hot items (matches, cigarettes, etc) to come into direct contact with the floor.
– NEVER let staining substances (such as food colouring, oil, grease, paint etc) to come into contact with the floor. Wipe off immediately. Whilst the protective sealer will protect to some degree, it will only give a small window of opportunity to clean up spills. Don’t allow the staining substance to penetrate.
Maintenance Programme for Ecoflor Acid Stain Overlay floor:
First seven days:
The flooring will be curing over the first 7 days and whilst it is fine to walk on, it is recommended that shoes are removed prior to walking on the floor and no wet cleaning, mopping etc of the floor with water or detergents.
After the first seven days:
Maintaining a microtopping floor is very simple. It is recommended to vacuum or sweep the floor frequently with the addition of spot cleaning where necessary. Use a premium quality neutral cleaner (non foaming) on stubborn spots and only occasionally use a damp pad over the entire surface to give further protection to your floor.
It is recommended that you apply a water based polishing wax or sealer finish to protect and enhance the floor in high traffic areas. Finish with buffing/polishing machine (white/tan nylon pad) or as directed on bottle label. This can be done once or twice a year or as needed (more frequently in higher traffic areas) to replenish shine.
Always read labels carefully before using cleaning products. All cleaning products for the Ecoflor Cement Flooring System can be purchased from Concrete Services Group Pty Ltd.
