At our company, we pride ourselves on providing the highest quality synthetic rubber flooring for a variety of applications. Our EPDM synthetic rubber flooring is a popular choice for its durability, slip resistance, and shock absorption properties. However, like any flooring material, it requires proper maintenance to ensure its performance and appearance over time. In this article, we will outline some key steps you can take to maintain your EPDM synthetic rubber flooring and keep it looking and performing like new.
Cleaning and Maintenance
One of the most important aspects of maintaining your EPDM synthetic rubber flooring is regular cleaning. Dirt, debris, and other contaminants can build up over time and lead to wear and tear on the surface. To prevent this, we recommend a regular cleaning schedule that includes sweeping or vacuuming the surface to remove loose dirt and debris, followed by a thorough scrubbing with a mild detergent and water. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive scrubbers, as these can damage the surface of the flooring and reduce its lifespan.
In addition to regular cleaning, it is important to address any spills or stains on the flooring as quickly as possible. EPDM synthetic rubber flooring is resistant to many types of chemicals and liquids, but certain substances can cause discoloration or other damage if left untreated. Be sure to wipe up any spills immediately and use a mild detergent to clean the affected area.
Another important aspect of maintaining your EPDM synthetic rubber flooring is taking protective measures to prevent damage from heavy equipment, furniture, or other objects. Use furniture pads or other cushioning materials under heavy furniture to prevent scratches or indentations on the surface. Similarly, use caution when moving heavy equipment or machinery across the flooring, and use protective mats or other coverings as necessary to prevent damage.
Regular inspections of your EPDM synthetic rubber flooring can help identify potential issues before they become major problems. Check the surface of the flooring for signs of wear or damage, such as cracks, tears, or discoloration. If you notice any issues, address them as soon as possible to prevent further damage and extend the lifespan of your flooring.
Finally, it is important to schedule regular professional maintenance for your EPDM synthetic rubber flooring. Professional cleaning and maintenance services can help keep your flooring in top condition and extend its lifespan. We recommend scheduling professional maintenance at least once a year, or more frequently for high-traffic areas or areas that are subject to heavy use.
EPDM synthetic rubber flooring is a durable and reliable choice for a wide range of applications, but it requires proper maintenance to ensure its performance and appearance over time. By following the steps outlined in this article, you can help keep your EPDM synthetic rubber flooring looking and performing like new for years to come.
