Stain Removal // Other Do’s & Dont’s

DO

  • Always test in small inconspicuous area while using a new cleaner to ensure compatibility.

  • Sweep or vacuum loose dirt and debris daily to avoid damaging or scratching the product surface.

  • Remove stains as quickly as possible. Mustard, ink, coffee and lipstick/make-up should be removed as soon as possible.

  • Use a two bucket system for cleaning: one bucket with diluted cleaning solution and a separate bucket with clean rinsing water. (Especially for very dirty areas or large spills.)

  • Remove excess liquid from the surface after cleaning.

DON’T

  • Leave stains on surface for more than 12 hours. After this, it becomes very difficult to remove stains, especially on the lighter colors.

  • Use cleaners containing ammonia, bleach, abrasives, or other hazardous/polluting compounds.

  • Scrape or scrub any ‘stuck-on’ spills or stains. Instead, soak the area with warm water on a wet rag to loosen anything that is adhered to the surface.

  • Let water stand or puddle on the surface.
