To best maintain your floors, WearMax recommends general maintenance guidelines. However, we recognize that every environment is different, and, therefore, we encourage all of our users to call for individual maintenance recommendations that may better suit their needs.
Use quality walk-off mats in entryways or areas where a grease buildup may occur. This may also help to prevent grit from damaging your floor.
Use felt furniture rests on all furniture. As a rule of thumb, the heavier the furniture, the wider the furniture protector should be. Felt rests are your best choice. Replace them every 4-6 months for best results.
Use a microfiber mop pad and a neutral cleaner that does not leave a film.
Avoid sharp objects, such as stiletto heels, pet nails, or unprotected furniture legs. All wood will dent, and all finishes will scratch.
Wood Floor Cleaning Instructions
The frequency that you clean your floor depends on how much use it receives. However, it should be cleaned at least once per week. Follow these tips when cleaning a WearMax-coated floor: Blot up spills and spots immediately.
To minimize abrasive grit and dirt dust mop the floor at least three times per week.
Do not apply anything to the dust mop.
Occasionally wipe the floor with a dampened microfiber mop such as a Swiffer (the less water, the better).
Periodically clean the floor with a neutral cleaner for ceramic-based finishes (Note: neutral cleaners do not leave a film).
Do not use wax, polish, abrasive cleaners, steel wool, scouring powder, vinegar, ammonia, or anything other than soft water.
VCT Cleaning Instructions for Large Public Facilities
Keep your public facility's floors in pristine condition by following these easy tips: Blot up spills and spots immediately
Dust floors daily with a microfiber mop spritzed with water to minimize abrasive grit and dirt.
When cleaning with a walk-behind or ride-on floor scrubber equipped with a white scrub pad or brush, simply fill the tank with soft water and go.
In facilities that use quaternary disinfectants, sanitize as mandated. Quaternaries (quads) can build up from the use of mandated sanitizing solutions which attract dirt and dust and turn floors yellow--a noticeable buildup can occur approximately every 30-90 days. To remove these quads, use water to flush your cleaning machine tanks thoroughly of these sanitizing solutions. A solution of a neutral cleaner, such as Emerge by FranMar, should be mixed as directed and applied to remove this film.
