Flooring Care Flotex Care & Cleaning

Flotex

Look after your Flotex and it will always look as good as new. As this handy guide shows, it couldn't be easier

Everyday Cleaning
Vacuum Flotex regularly with an upright vacuum cleaner for best results.   It's a good idea to set the brush adjustment on the lowest setting so that the brush actually touches the pile.
When vacuuming, push forward at normal speed and pull back at half speed. This gives the brush time to sweep out any fluff etc. that may have been pushed between the fibres. Pet hair should be removed with a damp cloth.
Wet cleaning
Flotex benefits from the occasional wet clean. This can be carried out with a machine such as Vax or hot-water extraction machine available for hire from dry cleaners and DIY machine hire shops.
The recommended detergent supplied with these machines is suitable for use on Flotex. However, it should only be used in a very weak solution, about one part detergent to one hundred parts water. You should always rinse your Flotex with clean water after using any detergent.
Mopping or wiping is not recommended as this only cleans the tips of the pile.


 

Dealing with spillages
Accidents will happen! Remove spillages as quickly as possible using the following guidelines

Wet spillages
Includes fatty foods, cooking oil, water based-drinks, non-fatty sauces, oil, petrol, paraffin.
If possible, remove the spillage as soon as it occurs
If the spillage has dried, pour on hot water and allow to soak for 5-10 minutes before attempting to remove it.
For small areas, use the scrape, scrub, rinse routine shown below, using a weak detergent solution or suitable carpet cleaner (1 teaspoon detergent to 5 litres of water).
For larger areas see the previous wet cleaning section.

 
Dry spillages
Includes washing powder, dry powder paint, spices.
Lift off any excess spillage
Vacuum/brush thoroughly
DO NOT use water. This will simply activate bleaching or colouring agents and could result in permanent staining.
Mud
Allow to dry then vacuum
Then refer to scrape, scrub, rinse routine or wet cleaning section.
Waxes

Use suitable dry cleaning fluid, then rinse
Tar, solidified fat

Step 1 SCRAPE
Scrape off as much of the spillage as possible into a paper towel or cloth. Use a paint scraper or blunt utensil.

Step 2 SCRUB
Pour a liberal amount of hot water onto the area. Add a small amount of detergent (approximately 1 teaspoon of detergent to 5 litres of water). Use a suitable carpet shampoo or detergent. Scrub using a stiff brush and scrape the dirty solution into an absorbent cloth.

Step 3 RINSE
Rinse thoroughly with clean water. Scrape the excess water into an absorbent cloth and leave to dry.


 

WARNING
Flotex can be permanently damaged by strong acids, strong alkalis, some solvents or materials containing them. It can also be stained by dyes, foodstuffs and other materials containing dyes or strong colorants. Bleach and substances containing bleach, oxidising and reducing agents may also damage and/or decolourise Flotex.
Damage may be minimized by immediately diluting the spillage with water, then removing with an absorbent material or extraction machine. Urine can also stain Flotex if not cleaned effectively.
Vinyl carpet protector
Not recommended, can damage Flotex.
Burns
Cigarette or other hot object can melt the nylon pile, resulting in permanent damage. Repairs are possible.
Stilettos, uncapped chairs
As with any floorcovering, stiletto heels, uncapped chairs and other articles applying high point loads can damage Flotex.
