Cleaning/General Maintenance

  • Always keep the floor free of debris. In our area sand is a major concern as sand mixed with foot traffic can degrade the most resilient floor coatings.
  • Clean the floor with a neutral pH cleaner. These are available from Lowe's or Home Depot. Lowe's carries a product by SC Johnson and Home Depot carries a product by Zep.
  • You can apply a mop on floor finish product every six to twelve months, depending on the wear your floor receives. Floor finish is also available at Lowe's or Home Depot. SC Johnson Low Maintenance Floor Finish and Zep Floor Finish are available in one and five gallon increments. Simply pour the floor finish on the floor and spread it with a dry swifter or similar product.
