Commercial Vinyl Care & Maintenance

Immediately after installation

  • Protect and do not disturb the sealed seams on sheet flooring for at least 16 hours after sealing seams to ensure a proper seam bond.
  • Keep traffic to a minimum during the first 48 hours to allow the adhesive to harden.
  • Furniture should not be placed on the floor until the adhesive has adequate time to cure.
  • Always move heavy furniture, appliances and objects with care to avoid gouging or tearing the floor. First, lay strips of plywood or hardboard panels on the floor. Then, roll, “walk” or slide these items on the strips.
  • Do not push or pull appliances and heavy furniture without taking these precautions.

Preventative Maintenance

  • Make sure furniture legs have large surface, non-staining floor protectors. Replace small, narrow metal or dome-shaped glides wit smooth, flat glides that are in flat contact with the floor. Glides should be equipped with self – adhesive felt pads to avoid scratching the surface of the floor. The pads should be checked periodically for grit and wear and replaced when necessary. Heavy furniture or appliances that are not moved often should be equipped with flat, non staining composition casters or cups of appropriate size – available square from 1” to 2 5/8” and round from 1 3/8” and 1 5/8”.
  • Avoid furniture/chairs with wheels/casters. They will damage vinyl flooring.
  • Place mats outside entrances to prevent dirt, grit and soil from being tracked onto the floor. Use 100% latex backed mats, because some rubber backed mats or carpets may permanently stain the floor.
  • Avoid wearing stiletto or spiked heels on your floor. These types of heels can indent or damage many types of floors.
VINYL COMPOSITION TILE & LUXURY VINYL

Immediately After Installation

  • Sweep or vacuum thoroughly to remove all loose dust and dirt.
  • Remove any dried adhesive residue with a clean white cloth dampened with mineral spirits, carefully following warnings on container.
  • Damp mop the floor with a neutral detergent solution while carefully scrubbing black marks and excessive soil. Do not wet wash, scrub or strip the floor for at least four or five days after installation.
  • Vinyl Composition Tile requires polishing for protection, ease of maintenance and attractive overall appearance. Apply 3-5 coats of a high quality commercial floor polish. This is a required maintenance on all Vinyl Composition Tile flooring.

Daily / Regular Maintenance

  • Sweep or Vacuum thoroughly and clean walk-off mats frequently.
