For spot cleaning spills or fluid leaks use:
- Paper towel
- Soft Cloth
- Clean Rag
If a spill leaves behind a film, a shot of Windex works wonders on removing the film and then rinse the area with warm water.
Floors with contraction joints: vacuum or sweep out the joints then proceed to lightly pressure wash or rinse with a hose to remove sand and salt.
Heavy Duty Cleaning
Our favorite Cleaning Solutions (neutral pH) are:
- Simple Green
- Purple Power
- ½ a cup of ammonia, 1 gal. warm water
Use a foam or microfiber mop and rinse mop frequently with warm water. Spot clean with a SOFT scrub pad. For garage floors a squeegee works best with warm water.
Deglossing of the floor may occur when:
- Scrubbing too hard when cleaning
- Using citrus cleaners or vinegar
- Infrequent cleaning up of road salt, sand or debris
For interior floors, a dust mop provides 90% of your floor cleaning duties. Spot clean the same way as your would for your exterior or garage floors. If a film is left behind use a shot of Windex and some warm water to rinse with.
Some tires (ATV’s, lawnmowers, snowblowers, boats) may leave staining. Place a mat or carpet piece under the tires to prevent staining.
