To ensure that your floor stays in the best condition and gives you years of satisfaction the correct cleaning and maintenance schedule should be used. When first installed and fully cured, your floor should be cleaned with a proprietary floor cleaner.
Before commencing the clean of your new floor you should sweep the area to remove any loose debris. An inspection of the area should then be undertaken to see if there are any areas that require individual treatment such as oil spillages or surface scuff marks from shoes etc.
The floor area should then be cleaned using a non-alkaline cleaner.
Pre-use Inspection & Precautions
The floor should now be inspected to ensure that it has been clean and that all soiling has been removed. If you will be placing equipment, storage racking, goods, furniture, filing cabinets etc. on the floor, then every effort should be taken to minimise surface scratching and marking. Dragging of heavy articles across the floor may cause surface damage.
Looking After Your Floor
If the correct cleaning and maintenance schedule is used the appearance of your floor will be easily maintained. For floors with a high gloss finish it is acceptable practice to lay a sacrificial layer of an acrylic polish, which will keep the high gloss finish, give a hard wearing surface,and have the ability to allow for the removal of surface scratches or blemishes, whilst still incorporating anti-slip properties. After this, the floor will require regular cleaning with either a neutral or mildly alkaline floor cleaner, depending on the type and level of soiling encountered.
Visible wear overtime can be remedied by puur technicians via sanding and further applying a fresh coat of seal. This can be arrange through the puur maintenance team.
Spillages of any liquid should be wiped up or absorbed and removed as soon as possible. This is responsible action as far as Health and Safety is concerned, and it will also help you to keep your floor in good condition. Once the spillage is removed the area should be cleaned as usual with your standard floor cleaner. If a sacrificial coat has been previously applied the floor should be inspected to see if this remains. If not, it should be reapplied as soon as possible.
a) Initial clean before use.
b) Take care when installing equipment.
c) Sacrificial polish if required.
d) Regular cleaning with the right product or equipment where necessary, clean up spillages
Remembering the above should mean your floor will give you years of hard wear and will still look

The use of HTC TwisterTM pads
TwisterTM eliminates the need for cleaning chemicals and heavily reduces the need for periodic floor maintenance, which in turn lowers total cost for floor maintenance.
The standard method for deep cleaning and upgrading means that the same cleaning routines and time spent is the same for both phases. This means no additional cost by way of extra hours and effort. Just change TwisterTM pads and continue as before. However, as the standard method is performed using the same routines as for daily cleaning, the floor will be walked on between the deep clean and upgrading phases and this will affect the length of time taken to complete the phases.
Engrained dirt clean floor recovery
First the floor is deep cleaned using the white TwisterTM pad for 20 days using ordinary cleaning routines (most often one pass over the floor per day).
After 20 days the white TwisterTM pad is replaced by a yellow TwisterTM pad and the same process is applied.
Finally the yellow TwisterTM pad is replaced by a green TwisterTM pad for continuous use and a final high quality, shiny and clean floor appears. This quality is then preserved by regular/daily use of green TwisterTM pads.
All pads are available from puur floors ltd
