VINYL TILE CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
TAKO Heavy-Duty Vinyl Tiles well meet the required electronic industries norms. Thus with technical properties such as low water absorption , high mechanical strength and resistance to stain or chemical attack, they all require good maintenance under special circumstances where the floor needs to maintain its antistatic property. The materials and methods recommended, when used in association with a regular routine, will enable the tiles to be maintained to a high standard cleanliness, hygiene and appearance.
Newly Laid Floors Apply a mildly cleaning solution to remove traces of residual. Soon after ,use a buffing action to wash the floor then thoroughly rinse with the anti-static cleaning solution.
Regular Cleaning Routine Sweep, then wash with water, mixed with neutral or mildly alkaline ( pH 7-8) detergent. Use warm water if there is oil or grease. Leave the water/ detergent mixture on the floor for about 5 to 15 minutes to allow it to work on the dirt. Rinse thoroughly to remove all traces of the mixture.
Cylindrical or reversing mechanical scrubbing machine may be used from time to time if there is dirt build-up particularly in large areas. Using the nylon polypropylene brushes, these machines should rotate at a slow to medium speed . Allow the water detergent mixture to remain on the floor for 5 to 15 minutes. Repeat the scrubbing operation with clean water while the suction drying facility ( if any) is switched on. Split oil, fat or materials likely to stain or cause slipping, should be removed immediately by using detergent and warm water, then rising thoroughly with water. When necessary, to scour the tile, remove impacted or built up dirt, abrasive powder (e.g. Vim, Kleenfloor etc ) may be added to the water detergent mixture. Remove the residue with clean water before it has been allowed to dry out. High velocity water jets may be used for general use and removal of stubborn dirt. These will not damaged the tiles but may erode the joints if used regularly. Warm water with a neutral detergent may be used for oil and grease removal.
