  • Skip the Harsh Chemicals

Harsh Cleaning solutions or formulas can actually do more harm than good to your rubber, flooring. Avoid any cleansers or solvents which would not suit the floor. In case of a spill, rinse the floor right away to prevent them from getting absorbed.

  • Skip Abrasive Products

Skip using any abrasive brushes or pads since they might end up scratching your precious floors instead of cleaning them. Use soft brushes or microfiber cloths to wipe down the rubber floors instead.

  • Don’t use excessive water

Though rubber floorings are highly repellant, it is still important to not use excessive water when cleaning. Too much water can actually cause the adhesive holding the flooring in place to peel away. Always use a damp and not wet mop to clean the flooring.
