Resilient Care

To care for your new resilient floor and keep it looking new, follow these simple tips...

 

After installation

  • Wait at least 24 hours before cleaning your new resilient flooring (check with your Abbey expert on the wait time).
  • Cover your entryways with mats to reduce the amount of dirt, sand and oil that could be tracked in. Avoid mats that have a rubber backing as this may cause damage or discolor your flooring.
  • Take your shoes off at the door! Be sure to wear slippers or socks. Your feet have oil on them that will transfer onto the floor.
  • Cover your furniture legs with floor protectors that are made of hard plastic or felt.


Routine Care

  • Vacuum regularly to remove loose dirt. Use a vacuum without a beater bar to avoid scratching your floor. 
  • When further cleaning is needed, use a mop with warm water. Use water by itself or use a manufacturer-recommended cleaning product. It should be a cleaner that rinses clean.  Many cleaners can leave behind a sticky residue that will act like a dirt magnet and allow dirt to build up on your flooring.
  • Use non-abrasive cleansers or scrubbing pads on your resilient floor to avoid scratches.
  • To prevent stains, wipe up spills immediately.
  • Use a non-abrasive scrubbing pad for stubborn stains that are caused by these:  Mustard, ink, permanent marker, asphalt, shoe polish, mold, mildew or hair dye. 

Need to remove black heel marks? Spray some WD40 on a cloth and wipe off the marks. Clean the area with warm water and a mild detergent, then rinse clean.
