Amtico Floor Care Products
Taking Care Of Your Amtico Floor
Amtico floors are designed to last. The superb wear properties make them a top choice across the scope- from retail spaces like stores and shopping malls, to office buildings, hospitality venues, education and health centres, all through to the modern day busy home. The beauty that these luxury vinyl floor tiles bring on board enables you to accentuate the interior space, adding charm and charisma to your residential or commercial establishment. It's also a versatile choice, seeing that Amtico LVTs can be laid on concrete, timber, terrazzo, stone and other subfloors. Getting the floor properly installed is the first step. You want your installation to last. This requires proper care and maintenance. Everyday dirt and grime, from the abrasive soiling that is traced into the building, to the food and drink spills that create smudges and stains, they all needed to be got rid of. For this, there are multiple solutions available to suit your needs. These include:
- Regular Cleaning Amtico Products Ireland
The occasional light sweep may not be effective in removing marks that are formed on your floor. Don`t fret. The Amtico Floorcare Maintainer has been formulated for this, to enable you to easily mop your floor and bring back that sparkle and shine. The application process is simple and straightforward: Apply the diluted Maintainer using a damp mop onto the floor; rinse and wring the mop, and change the solution as needed, depending on the level of soiling; then allow the floor to dry. This makes those regular cleaning sessions a breeze, allowing you to get rid of the grime and restore normalcy to your establishment in moments. For those scuff marks that are stubborn, you can gently rub them off using a non-abrasive or nylon pad. The luxury vinyl tiles are a low maintenance flooring choice, and it's recommended that dust mopping or sweeping using a soft brush be carried out daily, followed by a weekly damp mopping with the Amtico Floorcare Maintainer. The frequency can be increased for high traffic establishments.
- Stripping and Dressing Your Floor with Amtico Products Ireland
These come in for those situations where the floor needs a thorough and deep clean, in order to bring back that glistening look- like during spring cleaning, or even when there has been some recent heavy traffic that resulted in a huge build-up of grime. For this, there are products such as the Amtico Floorcare Stripper and Floorcare Dressing. The Floorcare Stripper gets rid of the ingrained dirt. Simply apply it onto the floor, mop, allow a dwelling time of 10 minutes, then rinse the surface. It's recommended that the rinsing is done twice. The Amtico Stripper can also be used for the post-installation clean-up, to remove traces of adhesives that had been left behind.
The Floorcare Dressing has two main roles: aesthetics and protection. It gives the floor an elegant satin finish, and increases its resistance to scratching and scuffing. That way, you can protect new floors and restore the beauty to old flooring. It's applied using a flat head applicator mop. Start out at the point in the room that's the furthest from the exit, then apply a thin coat along the edges. Proceed onto the main floor, working your way to the exit. That way you won`t go stepping on the wet sections that have already been coated. Allow a 30 minutes drying time, keeping the area well ventilated. Add a second coat of the Amtico Floorcare Dressing, this time applying it at right angles to the initial coat. Allow another 30 minutes drying time, and the floor will be ready to use.

Extra Tips To Keep Your Amtico Floor At Its Optimal
These are simple measures to follow that will ensure that your Amtico Floor remains pristine, allowing you to enjoy your investment and keep the interior space looking elegant all through:
First, ensure that any spills are wiped up the moment they are formed. You don`t want them sticking around and stains setting onto the surface. Those fat and grease spills can also make the floor slippery. Carry out a spot cleaning on the affected area with a diluted Amtico Floorcare Maintainer solution, or the Amtico Spillage Remover that comes ready to use. Blot the spills up using a clean paper towel or absorbent cloth and the preferred Amtico product.
Dry and caked-on residue on the floor can be removed using a plastic spatula or a blunt scraper.
Furniture cups, castors, felt pads or glides should be used for your sofa sets, shelves, and other furniture coming into contact with the floor, in order to reduce risks of marks being formed. For instance, the glides protect the floor from scratches, while the castor cups spread the load of the item, thus preventing indentations. Felt pads are used on the feet of tables, chairs and other movable furniture to reduce the risks of scratching. On that same note, avoid dragging heavy furniture or appliances like refrigerators and washing machines across the floor. Steam mops should not be used for cleaning the floor, as these may damage the installation.
Using mats at entranceways is recommended as it will reduce the amount of grit and debris getting tracked into the building and onto the floor. For this, you can opt for products like the Amtico Entrance Mat. Ensure the matting that is selected is specifically recommended by Amtico, as there are some rubber-backed products that can result in permanent staining on your floor. Remember to keep the mats themselves clean by regularly shaking them out, vacuuming and washing.
Be cautious when using glass or furniture polish. Silicone oversprays can make the floor surface slippery.
When vacuuming, ensure that the unit that is used has been declared suitable for Amtico flooring. In addition check that there aren`t sharp items on the floor that could get stuck under the vacuum while it is in use and cause scratches.
