- Wait at least 72 hours after installation of a rubber floor to clean it. This will allow time for the adhesive to cure.
- Sweep your rubber flooring regularly to help keep heavy dirt and soil from accumulating.
- You can also remove dry debris from your flooring by vacuuming regularly.
- Wet mop your rubber floor with a mild solution of dish soap in warm water. Rinse with clean water, then blot dry with a towel.
- Remove stubborn soil from your rubber floor by scrubbing with a hand brush and soapy water.
- Use a rubber floor conditioner to restore your rubber floor’s original glossy finish!
- To restore shine without using an expensive rubber floor conditioner, try mixing 1 cup of powdered fabric softener into a half-full pail of water and then mopping with this, or using a mopping cleaner such as Mop & Glo mixed in with water as you mop.
- Avoid acidic or acetone-based cleaning solutions, as they may damage your rubber flooring.
- Coloured cleaning or scouring pads may damage your rubber flooring too, as will abrasive scrubbers like steel wool.
