Vinyl floors are very attractive and durable. But to maintain that attractive look and make it long lasting, it is very essential that you take proper care of it. Here are a few tips from Pharo Cleaning Services, the New South Wales commercial cleaning services company, on how to take care of vinyl floors.
Use doormat to keep out chemicals and dirt : A doormat actually helps to keep out the chemicals and dirt from the vinyl floors. Tracked-in dirt means more broom time. The grit acts like the sandpaper, removing finish from vinyl floor. And although you may not be able to see them, the chemicals from bitumen,which stick to the shoes can cause the floor to change its color and become yellow.
Never drench the vinyl floor : Water from the overly wet mop works its way to the seams, cracks and edges and destroys the glue bonding, which holds the vinyl as a result of which corners curl or the tiles get loose.
Use protective feet : The weight of heavy office furniture like tables, refrigerators, and others, which take permanent places in the office may dent he vinyl floor. In order to prevent these dents from taking place, you need to fit your furniture and office appliances with floor protectors.
Keep the floors clean :
Always keep the floors clean. Don’t allow dirt to ground in if you want the floor to last longer. Sweep regularly. If the no-wax vinyl requires cleaning, just wash it using a cleaner that’s made for the no-wax floors. If the vinyl is older and needs waxing, use detergent and warm water for cleaning. Dampen a sponge or mop with this solution and rub the vinyl floor to make it dirt-frees. Don’t ever rub off wax as you may need to reapply it. Always use a cool and clean water to rinse the floor.
