Unnatural Flooring Care
To help you protect your investment we have produced this simple guide on how to maintain your Unnatural Flooring so you can enjoy it for many years to come.
1. Immediately after installation:
Protect and do not disturb the sealed seams for at least 48 hours. Keep traffic to a minimum on the entire surface to allow the adhesive to harden. Do not place furniture on the floor until the adhesive has had adequate time to dry.
Always move heavy appliances and furniture with care to avoid gouging or tearing the floor. Lay plywood panels on the floor and slide the heavy objects on the panels.
2. Regular maintenance:
Sweep or vacuum regularly to remove dirt. Using a vacuum with a roller brush is best for removing trapped dirt from the texture of Unnatural Flooring.
Wipe up spills promptly to avoid stains.
Wash your floor as needed with a mop and warm water. For a more thorough cleaning use soft brushes. Clean flooring with a neutral solution or a slightly alkaline solution by rubbing with a soft brush. Rinse with water after alkaline solution is used.
Do not use dishwashing liquids or detergent soap cleaners. They can leave a sticky residue, which attracts soil and causes a reduction of gloss.
3.How to treat stains and spills:
Stains and spills such as acids, alkalis, blood, mustard, strong soaps, dye, dye markings, food, candy, fruit and fruit juices, grass, iodine, rust and urine
a. Blot up excess at once
