Düraamen’s Flooring Systems are designed to produce dense, long-term, seamless floor protection resistant to wear, chemical attack and dirt penetration. düraamen™ floors can be generally maintained with a routine program similar to any good house-keeping procedures. Thorough sweeping and mopping to remove loose particles and soil along with prompt removal of grease and other contaminants will prevent the flooring system from early deterioration. Seamless floors are easier to maintain than their counterparts in the resilient flooring industry because they are seamless, and therefore do not provide cracks and crevices to entrap contaminants.
Düraamen’s Flooring Systems demonstrate superior resistance to wear and abrasion. In time, however, high traffic areas become noticeable. It is possible to renew düraamen’s Flooring Systems to their original appearance by cleaning and resealing with the appropriate finish as dictated by the system in place. Prior to application, the floor system must be prepared by stripping all waxes, sealers and other contaminants. Contact your düraamen™ representative for further information. Specific considerations for düraamen’s Flooring Systems have been outlined below.
a. Routine sweeping and then mopping with common household detergents or soaps, followed by thorough rinsing prevents damage to the finish from the grinding effect of minute abrasive particles common to work areas.
All düraamen’s Flooring Systems should be mopped on a regular basis with a neutral detergent or soap, and thoroughly rinsed. Water should be changed frequently and mops rinsed often.
Smooth floors are readily cleaned in this manner unless they are subject to heavy traffic and steel or hard rubber wheels that can leave marks that require extra attention. In addition, non-skid surfaces can be resistant to ordinary mopping. Severe spillage or routine major contamination also requires special cleaning protocols.
The key to getting a textured floor clean is to scrub it with a bristle brush or mechanical scrubber that will dislodge dirt and grease from the depressions of the texture surface.
Severe problem areas may be treated as follows:
düraamen’s Flooring Systems need not be waxed or polished. However, should wear areas appear in traffic areas, waxing or polishing with a standard commercial product may enhance the finish.
düraamen’s Flooring Systems are designed to withstand heavy wear and tear. However, should visible wear occur in high traffic areas you may wish to restore the floor by resealing it. Before applying any permanent material to the floor:
It is especially important to continually maintain conductive and electro-static dissipating flooring systems in a clean, film free condition to maintain the floor’s effectiveness. Use of harsh detergents that may attack the finish of the floor, or improper rinsing, resulting in residue remaining on the floor, may directly affect the ability of the floor to perform as designed. If hard water is used, a softener may be needed to prevent scum.
Consult your düraamen™ representative for special considerations that may apply to your conductive or static-dissipating floor.
