  • Sweep, mop sweep or dry vacuum the floor, to remove dust, grit and debris.
  • For light soiling, damp mop the floor with a neutral cleanser, diluted to the manufacturer's instructions.

OR

  • For heavy soiling, apply a solution of alkaline cleanser, diluted to the manufacturer's instructions, to the floor and leave for sufficient time to react with the soiling. Using a 165 to 350 rpm rotary machine fitted with a crubbing pad, machine scrub the floor and then pick up the slurry with a wet vacuum. Rinse the floor thoroughly with clean warm water, pick up with a wet vacuum and leave to dry thoroughly.
  • Normal, commercially available polishes should not be applied to Polyflor ESD products, as they will inhibit the conductive properties.
  • Polishes described as 'antistatic' are classified by a different standard from that of the floorcovering, and should be treated as a standard polish in static contol terms and, consequently, should not be applied.
  • Conductive polishes which are approved by Polyflor can be applied in strict accordance with the manufacturer's instructions. Prior to application of a floor dressing, ensure that the floor is thoroughly scrubbed. This will ensure that there is a good key between the dressing and the surface of the flooring. Always discuss with our Technical Support staff before applying a conductive polish.
  • The frequency of each of the operations is dependent upon the type and intensity of traffic.
  • Sweep, mop sweep or dry vacuum, to remove dust and loose dirt.
  • Spot mop frequently. Stubborn black marks can be removed by using the centre disc of a scrubbing pad and a small amount of undiluted alkaline cleanser. Place the disc unde the sole of the shoe and rub - this gives greater pressure. Rinse the area well with clean warm water and allow to dry.
  • Depending upon the end user requirement and the equipment available, one of the following methods should be used:
  • Using an alkaline or germicidal cleanser, diluted to the manufacturer's instructions, spray a fine mist onto the floor. Using a 165 to 500 rpm rotary machine and suitable spray cleaning pad, which should be thoroughly cleaned after use. Failure to do so will result in a shiny, dirty floor.

OR

  • Using an alkaline or germicidal cleanser, diluted to the manufacturer's instructions, mop the floor and allow to dry completely. Using a 500 to 2000 rpm rotary machine, buff the floor to the desired level of shire.

    NOTE: When high speed burnishing, it is important that the machine is kept constantly moving. This avoids excessive heat build-up on the floor. As an additional precaution, we advise that a spray of clean water is used to help lubricate the pad.

  • Always ensure mops and pads are kept especially for the static control areas, to prevent a possible transfer of polish.

Always follow the Health and Safety guidance provided.

REGULAR CLEANING IS MORE BENIFICIAL TO THE FLOORCOVERING AND MORE COST-EFFECTIVE THAN OCCASIONAL HEAVY CLEANING.
