Types of washable floors with water:
- P.V.C. (vinyl)
- Concrete, cement
- Stones natural (marble, granite, stone of France, sandstone, etc.
- agglomerated Flagstones (terrazzo, terrazzo, etc)
- Rubber (smooth, pastille)
- vitrified Parquet floors
- Formicas, rolled
Many floors have a certain porosity and/or roughness, variable according to their nature. The stains penetrate in roughnesses of the coating and make cleaning more difficult.
A protected floor removes these disadvantages and thus facilitates cleaning and increases the productivity, hygiene and standing.
Protection is done containing polymers. For a surface which does not undergo too much of traffic one will use an emulsion rich in polymers, but in the majority of the cases one will have to employ the same product to pickle, protect and maintain.
Surfaces to be protected are the suspended linoleums, vinyls, tiled floors,
with hospital standards etc. For the others one will be able to employ the
Scouring, followed of a neutralization, because the polymers are fragile with the pH, and application of the polymer emulsion. Maintenance must consequently be neutral.
Use of a product with low content polymers for maintenance and protection.
Cleaning containing soaps selected for their grease-removing capacities with products of resistance to limestone, solubilization to mix easily with water and of the dispersants to eliminate all tough stains.
Powerful liquid, nourishes and protects the washable floors with water and not protected, foam little, facilitating the rinsing (optional), contains a filler for an easy maintenance. Pass everywhere, ideal for tilings, marbles, granitos, terrazzo,
terra cotta, stones of size, floors porous or old, etc... With an action cleansing on the level of the microbes.
To dilute the liquid chosen with necessary dilution according to the importance and of the type of stain, to dilute the solution on the floor using a mop.
To let act from 5 to 20 min. according to the cases, and scour with the single-brush hard disk. To rinse with water until neutralization, pH 7.
To the quite dry and vacuum-cleaned support, apply the polymer emulsion with one etendor of emulsion. To let dry approximately 45 min., polish with single-brush and soft disc. Vacuum-clean (impregnated gauzes) and start again the operation
with a more important layer of polymers, let dry 1 hour.
The last layer must also be polished.
For the new types of protection, more durable, it is possible to combine the actions of natural and synthetic waxes while working on the advantages of two waxes by the proportions of polymers in film.
The product to be used for this treatment must be of an exceptional hardness to be durable in time, leaves a film autolustrant and polishable.
Disadvantage: agitation of the can before application and can leave a veil blanchâtre on the surfaces sunk in the event of application on grounds of pH > to 7.
Particularly advised on standard surfaces lino, vinyl, balatum...
The particularly réticulé film is ideal like agent of protection of surfaces which can be contaminated by bacteria.
De-dusting in daily newspaper and weekly neutral washing.
Note: the maintenance of the linoleums and vinyls is also done with the pH 7.
Pickling solution = pH 13
Protection = pH 9
Maintenance = pH 7
For the places with strong traffic one will choose other solutions:
A product of cleaning for polymerizing purpose of protection.
Or a product of waxing cleaning and neutral use.
Or a product of cleaning for industrial grounds with strong clogging.
In the case of persistent cement milt after installation of a tiling:
Employ products acid: attention it is a corrosive and acid substance:
pH close to 0. Use the diluted product, to know the dilution of employment, to test the tiling in a corner and to see at which time of dilution produces it do not cause any more an acid attack on the support (foam formation), to use this dilution to remove the cement residues and to rinse immediately after the operation, because even if the acid attack of the product is not visible, in the long run it remains corrosive for the support.
Special case of the floor suspended:
Composed of thick flagstones posed freely on studs, the space thus carried
out between the false floor and the cover is used in the passing of many
Moreover in room of computer, certain floors are envisaged like electroconducting. I.e. like crest gate for the static accumulation of electricity. On these floors the joints are sources of water infiltration.
One thus does not clean them with water, but they should be protected to allow one dry maintenance. Protection will be made in spray method with soft disc high speed with vacuum cleaner incorporated to respect the standards of rooms of computers. Maintenance using impregnated gauzes.
For the grounds in rubber pastilles one cannot protect:
In this precise case one will use a general-purpose product
three categories: natural fibres, mixed fibres synthetic, fibres.
two supports: foam or fabric
types of installations: free, stuck, tended
To avoid the contact of water with a carpet tended laying, for the others it nevertheless is advised to test the behaviour before washing.
Normal maintenance of the carpet:
To pass the vacuum cleaner weekly, to detach according to needs, to disinfect spray method, or method bonnet, annual shampoo or injection extraction.
Stain removal by universal product, disinfection, deodorization and shampoo
The maintenance of the parquet floors can be done with water only on the oak, for the others one will start by pickling, produced to use: solvent and surface-active.
Method to be used single-brush and hard disk and with the need Scotch tape mesh.
The protection of the parquet floors is carried out by a waxing liquid and sometimes for reasons of maintainability jointly with synthetic polymers or with polymerizable products based on oil (siccative).
Polishing with the soft disc and de-dusting using impregnated gauzes.
The addition of wax occasionally to preserve a standard layer causes in the places little attended an accumulation of waxes, a partial scouring by solvent in spray method is advised.
For the case of the cork grounds, to vitrify and clean then like a washable ground with water, but with neutral products.
Plaster, concrete, stone, paper, textile, painting, glass, stainless, tiling, earthenware, etc.
treatment by universal grease-remover except for paper paints nonwashable and the textiles poses tended.
To take precautions for the stuck textiles.
Stains met: nicotine, greases, dust, etc.
For tougher stains like inks, rubber, etc.
To work with third solvents, but with the precautions necessary for the respect of the support.
For standard paintings graffiti, and outside, to employ the scouring products.
Doors, casings, beams, pieces of furniture, etc.
To employ the universal cleaning ones or specific products and to protect according to the cases with the polish, lubricant, etc.
Methods different for small surfaces (sponges and chamois) from large
surfaces (sprinkler, scraper and scraper)
The choice of rubber is very important, flexible to marry the relief of the window and rectilinear to avoid the traces (the edge also must be rectilinear).
The professional windows liquid must be at speed of slow evaporation, action demister, facilitate slips it, avoid an excessive tiredness of the user and produce a stabilized foam which delimits greases-removed surfaces.
Treatment with precaution for leathers and cleaning universal for imitation, look etc. Protection and easing with the cream for leather (AXELLE)
Even treatment that for the stain removal of the carpets, but preferably on the surface total (universal cleaning).
