Instructions for floor cleaning and care
Important information: Dust and loose dirt adversely affect the friction of the surface and it is therefore advisable to remove loose dirt on a daily basis.
General: UK Resin Floors coatings can be employed in a variety of different areas. The requirements on the floors are diverse and include electrically conducting floors, floors with high resistance to chemicals, heavy duty floors and decorative floors. Correct care and cleaning prolongs the service life of the floor and ensures the long-term quality of the floor.
Dirt catchment zone: The integration of dirt catchment zones in the entrance area is recommended to reduce the amount of dirt on the floor.
Protective care: The application of a care agent to form a protective film protects the floor against external factors and prevents, for example, scratches and signs of wear. Good care is vital and also allows more rapid subsequent cleaning.
Base treatment: Application of a base protective layer which leaves a film on the floor which can be polished to the desired degree of shine and which repels dirt. Alternatively, via a coating which enhances the optical appearance, conceals scratches and improves the cleaning properties
Care for functionality maintenance: The cleaning and care of electrically conducting floors is extremely important. This ensures the continued quality of the floor and also ensures that the build up of charge on people and the resistance values are acceptable. Contaminants can adversely affect the floor properties. Care treatments and mopping treatments can lead to poorer values and must not be carried out.
Cleaning: Besides the hygienic benefits of regular cleaning, special products can improve the sure-footedness of the floor. This has a positive effect on work safety.
Fine cleaning: Remove loose dirt with a vacuum cleaner or with a dust-collecting system. Scrub with a pad and then remove water by suction. Rinse, remove water again by suction and leave to dry.
Regular cleaning: Ongoing general cleaning of the floor Cleaning intervals: Daily to weekly, depending on the amount of dirt Damp mopping: Suitable for removing loose dirt such as sand, dust, etc. Wet mopping: To remove marks left by shoes and tyres, etc.. It is important here to regularly change the water.
