Amtico: Routine maintenance of domestic floors

Regular maintenance and protection of the surface will help preserve the appearance and extend the life of your floor.

The frequency of maintenance will depend on the amount and type of traffic, degree of soiling and the floor colour and type. to help prevent soiling and damaging particles of grit being carried in on footwear we recommend the use of an external grit tray at door entrances and our own Amtico international floorcare entrance Matting for internal use. These mats can be purchased via any of our retailers and are available in a range of complimentary colours.

Daily Sweeping and Dust Mopping
• Thoroughly sweep the floor using a non-treated dust mop or soft brush and dust pan.
• Regularly clean entrance matting by shaking and beating, vacuuming or washing.

Manual Mopping
• Prepare solution of Amtico international Floorcare Maintainer diluted in accordance with instructions on the container.
• Apply the solution using a damp mop to remove soiling using overlapping strokes.
• Rinse the mop frequently and change the solution as necessary.
• Dirty water will leave an unsightly residue on the surface.
•  Allow entire floor area to dry thoroughly.
• Ensure all equipment is cleaned thoroughly after use and stored safely. Any scuff marks that are not removed during routine cleaning may be gently rubbed with a non-abrasive or nylon pad of the type used on non-stick cookware. At least once a year, floors should be stripped thoroughly using amtico international floorcare stripper to remove in-grained dirt and floor dressing if applied. Please refer to the section Periodic Maintenance of Domestic amtico floors.
