To help protect your floorcovering from varying levels of traffic and also as the first defence against the weather, we strongly recommend that barrier mats be installed at entry points to the building to limit the amount of wet and dry soiling. If maintained correctly, these barrier mats should limit the transfer of foot borne contamination and make the daily cleaning and maintenance programme even easier.

The PU surface protection improves resistance to staining, reduces initial maintenance requirements and provides a foundation for an on-going maintenance regime.

Initial Treatment

1. If Sheet - Please ensure all joints are hot welded prior to carrying out any wet cleaning

2. Allow the adhesive to fully cure prior to carrying out any wet cleaning.

3. Ensure that all trace of adhesive is removed from the surface of the floorcovering.

4. Clean floor area with a soft broom or preferably a dust control mop.

5. Mop clean with diluted Johnson Diversey Carefree Stride 1000 or an equivalent neutral detergent with a pH7 or scrub floor clean with Stride 1000 using a standard-speed rotary machine fitted with a red pad or scrub with a scrubber dryer (combination machine) fitted with a red pad.

6. Although the PU surface protection will offer an initial barrier to soiling, this particular style of product should have 2 – 3 coats of polish, such as Johnson Diversey Carefree Satin applied to the surface, especially if the installation is to receive only a non-mechanical means of maintenance or is in a busy commercial environment.

Daily Cleaning

Non-Mechanical Method (not most suitable for commercial premises, as it will not remove heavy soiling)

1. Clean floor area with a broom or preferably a dust control mop.

2. If soiled: Damp mop the area clean with diluted Stride 1000. Use a hand held red pad or an edging pad to remove heavier soiling.

It is important to ensure that only the smallest amount of moisture is deposited onto the floorcovering when cleaning, so that the floorcovering surface will dry within 15 – 20 seconds.

Mechanical Method

1. Clean floor area with a vacuum, broom or preferably a dust control mop.

2. Spray clean with diluted Stride 1000 or Carefree Maintainer using a high - speed rotary machine fitted with a red pad. Prior to spray cleaning, heavily soiled areas should mopped or scrubbed clean with diluted Stride 1000.

Periodic Cleaning & Maintenance

1. Clean floor area with a vacuum, broom or preferably a dust control mop

2. Scrub floor clean with Stride 1000 using a standard-speed rotary machine (150 – 250rpm) fitted with a red pad or scrub with a scrubber dryer (combination machine) fitted with a red pad. If the surface is dull, dry burnish with an ultra highspeed rotary machine (best results 1000rpm) fitted with a red pad.

Future Treatment (for areas which have not received an initial application of polish)

1. Clean floor area with a dust control mop.

2. Scrub floor clean with Stride 1000 using a standard-speed rotary machine (150 – 250rpm) fitted with a red pad or scrub with a scrubber dryer (combination machine) fitted with a red pad and allow to dry.

3. Apply 2 - 3 thin coats of Carefree Satin (Johnson Diversey) in alternate directions, using a flat mop. Allow ample time for each application to dry prior to applying the next coat.

Future Daily / Weekly Cleaning

1. Spray clean with Carefree Maintainer (Johnson Diversey) using a high-speed rotary machine fitted with a red pad.

Cleaning & Maintenance of Stairs – Non-Mechanical

1. Clean risers with a broom or dust control cloth.

2. Clean treads by vacuuming or use a soft broom to sweep across the width of the stair.

3. Damp mop the area clean with diluted Stride 1000 using a double bucket system. Use a hand held white pad or an edging pad to remove heavier soiled areas.

Cleaning & Maintenance of Stairs – Mechanical (For Larger Applications Of Stairs)

1. Clean risers with a broom or dust control cloth.

2. Clean treads by vacuuming or use a soft broom to sweep across the width of the stair.

3. The use of a small scrubbing machine such as a Primaster Combi 2 in 1 fitted with a (red, white, tan) pad, in conjunction with a spray bottle containing a diluted solution of Johnson Stride 1000 can make the maintenance of Stair applications simpler.
