Cleaning Agents to Use

  • 1.Only use mild, pH neutral cleaners, neutral means a pH level of 7 to 8. (Examples: Earth Choice, Neutralex, Diluted Vinegar) Use in small amounts only.
  • 2.Never use chlorinated cleaners.

Newly-Installed Gym Flooring

The first rinse is needed to remove the waxy top coat on the gym flooring applied at the factory.

  • 1.Your mop should be nylon or microfiber.
    •       -Avoid cotton mop heads because cotton tends to leave lint behind.
    •       -Ensure that your mop is only damp, and not dripping wet.
  • 2.Apply: Using a mop, apply the mild cleaning agent as specified above.
  • 3.Rinse: Go over the flooring with clean water to rinse.
  • 4.Dry: Open the windows and use a fan to help the floor dry quickly.
  • 5.Note: Do not flood the floor or use water excessively.

Daily Cleaning and Maintenance

  • 1.Vacuum daily to remove dirt, as well as keep dust to a minimum.
  • 2.Remove spots or spillages daily using a clean damp microfibre cloth or sponge.

Weekly / Interim Cleaning and Maintenance

  • 1.Vacuum thoroughly to remove all dirt and grit.
  • 2.Apply: Using a nylon or microfiber mop, apply the mild cleaning agent as specified above.
  • 3.Rinse: Go over the flooring with clean water to rinse.
  • 4.Dry: Open the windows and use a fan to help the floor dry quickly.
  • 5.Note: Do not flood the floor or use water excessively.

Periodic Cleaning for Heavy Soiling

  • 1.Vacuum thoroughly to remove all dirt and grit.
  • 2.Fully clean the floor using a damp mop (cleaning routine specified above).
  • 3.If heavy soiling is still present, consider using an auto-scrubbing machine such as Rotowash or Duplex. Only use pH neutral cleaning agents.
Some Important Maintenance Tips:
  • 1.Use commercial quality entry mats at main entrances to trap dirt and prevent tracking.
  • 2.If you can, make the beverage of choice in the gym pure water. If not cleaned up straightaway, energy drinks, Powerade, coffee may leave a stain or sticky residue.
  • 3.Removing chewing gum: To remove chewing gum, you can use a number of generic brands or alternatively use ice packs to freeze the gum and remove with a spatula.
  • 4.If you can, consider removing your gym floor tiles once a year to vacuum and mop beneath it. Tiles have penetrable edges, and eventually fine particles will sift through them. Water can do the same, so use a mop that is only slightly damp when cleaning. Take up the tiles, and give both the underlay and the tiles themselves a sanitising wash.
