Amtico and Karndean floors are extremely hard wearing – scuff, slip and dent resistant. Basic precautions and care will help keep your floor looking good for years to come.

Amtico floors

Amtico recommend that you use their Amtico International FloorCare products.

For everyday cleaning

Regular maintenance and protection of the surface will help preserve the appearance and extend the life of your floor.
The frequency of maintenance will depend on the amount and type of traffic, degree of soiling and the floor colour and type.

To help prevent soiling and damaging particles of grit being carried in on footwear Amtico recommend the use of an external grit mat at door entrances and their own Amtico International FloorCare Entrance Matting for internal use. These mats can be purchased via Amtico retailers and are available in a range of complementary colours.

Daily sweeping and dust mopping

  • Thoroughly sweep the floor using a non-treated dust mop or soft brush and dust pan.
  • Regularly clean entrance matting by shaking and beating, vacuuming or washing.

Manual mopping

  • Prepare solution of Amtico International FloorCare Maintainer diluted in accordance with instructions on the container
  • Apply the solution using a damp mop to remove soiling using overlapping strokes
  • Rinse the mop frequently and change the solution as necessary
  • Dirty water will leave an unsightly residue on the surface
  • Allow entire floor area to dry thoroughly
  • Ensure all equipment is cleaned thoroughly after use and stored safely.

Any scuff marks that are not removed during routine cleaning may be gently rubbed with a non-abrasive or nylon pad of the type used on non-stick cookware.

At least once a year, floors should be stripped thoroughly using Amtico International FloorCare Stripper to remove in-grained dirt and floor dressing if applied. Please refer to the section Periodic Maintenance of Domestic Amtico floors.

For an occasional refresh

For heavily soiled, ingrained or previously dressed floors we would recommend stripping the floor thoroughly, at least once
 a year using Amtico International FloorCare Stripper as detailed below. Dressing can then be applied to refresh the surface and offer continued protection.

Stripping the floor

  • Prepare a solution of Amtico International FloorCare Stripper using warm water as per the instructions on the container. Carefully follow all safety instructions, particularly noting that the floor can become slippery during the stripping process
  • Apply plenty of solution over a manageable area
  • Allow 10 to 15 minutes contact time
  • Agitate solution with mop. Do not allow slurry to dry
  • Remove slurry with mop and bucket or with a wet vacuum Rinse floor twice with clean water and allow to dry.

Dressing the floor

  • Pour quantity of Amtico International FloorCare Dressing into bucket
  • Using clean mop or flat-type applicator, load with dressing and partially wring out. Starting at the furthest point from the exit, apply a thin even coat around the perimeter and then apply to the main floor with overlapping passes
  • Allow to dry (approx 30 mins). To assist with the drying of dressing, keep the area well ventilated
  • Apply second coat at right angles to first coat and allow to dry (approx 30 mins).

Notes

  • Ensure all equipment is cleaned thoroughly after use and stored safely
  • Do not use the same equipment for the application of Amtico International FloorCare Dressing as used for stripping.

Karndean floors

Karndean recommend that you use their Karndean Floor Care products.

For everyday cleaning

Regular cleaning with a pH neutral cleaner such as Karndean Clean will help keep your floor at its best. Follow these simple steps for cleaning your Karndean floor:

  • With a soft sweeping brush, remove any loose dirt or dust
  • Add 50ml of Karndean Clean (one notch represents 50ml) to approximately 8-10 litres of clean water
  • Mop the Karndean Clean solution onto the whole floor, removing any excess liquid
  • Then allow your floor to dry before walking on it.

For an occasional refresh

Every six to twelve months you may want to treat your floor to some extra care to further enhance its look and durability.

Karndean Remove helps to prepare your floor before applying Karndean Refresh.

Karndean Refresh creates a satin finish to your floor and helps protect it from marks and fine scratches.

Remove

Karndean Remove prepares your floor before applying Karndean Refresh.

  • Dilute Karndean Remove 1 part to 5 with clean water. 200ml of Karndean Remove to one litre of water will cover approximately 10m (One notch represents 50ml)
  • With a household mop, spread the solution onto the floor liberally and leave to work for five minutes, making sure it does not dry
  • Using the blue Applicator 7 with a wet Karndean Remove Pad (coarse/white) 6 from your Floor Care Kit, scrub the floor all over
  • Remove the residue with a household mop, rinsing the floor thoroughly with fresh, clean, warm water
  • Be careful not to allow Karndean Remove to dry on the floor. Always wear protective gloves when using this product. 

Refresh

Karndean Refresh creates a satin finish to your floor and helps protect it from marks and fine scratches.

  • Before you start, make sure the floor is completely dry and free of all traces of Karndean Remove
  • Using the blue Applicator 7 with the Karndean Refresh Pad (soft/white) 5 from your Floor Care Kit, spread a thin and even layer of undiluted Karndean
  • Refresh onto the floor, in a widthways direction
  • Leave this layer to dry for approximately 30 minutes, then repeat the process lengthways
  • Rinse the pad thoroughly after use and leave the floor to dry for approximately 6 hours or preferably over night.

Guarantee

All Karndean floors are guaranteed. Karndean floors have either a 12, 15 or 20 year (depending on range) transferable residential guarantee against wear out.
