Information and Tips for Cleaning

Varie Coat seamless flooring will respond to either light or vigorous cleaning depending on how the area is used.

Schools

Typical Areas

Preschools, classrooms, laboratories, canteens, pool amenities and amenities blocks.
Cleaning methods must comply with Education Department Cleaning guidelines.

Daily

Mop floor with liberal amount of cleaning solution and then remove excess solution using a floor squeegee.

  • Only hose floor and squeegee dry if necessary.
  • Scrub stubborn dirt spots with a doodle bug.
  • Use of string mops is recommended by Education Queensland.

Periodic

On as needed basis, perhaps weekly or end of term.

  • Scrub floor & coves with floor polisher/scrubber (white, green or red pads).
  • Hose floor & squeegee dry as necessary.
  • Extremely dirty floors may also be pressure cleaned. First mop floor with liberal amount of cleaning solution.

Heavily gritted non skid floors usually installed in pool amenities and toilet amenities will respond better to a weekly hosing and a scrub at the end of term.

Seamless floors have good resistance to tyre marking, petrol, oils and grease contamination. Wipe spills with a rag or paper towel and rinse spot with detergent cleaning solution. Rubber markings from shoes or tyres can be removed by dry rubbing with a clean rag.
Avoid the use of abrasive cleaners (Ajax) and bleaches. Methylated spirits or solvents may be used to remove stubborn marks. Use a clean rag to avoid smudging and use chemicals sparingly.

Cleaning is easy and efficient as the floor is seamless.
