Use & Care for the Carolina Custom Decorative Chip Floor in the Family Life Center.
- For minor spills, simply wipe them up with a paper towel or other soft cloth. Routine maintenance cleaning is best achieved with either a soft bristle brush (suitable for washing a car) or a blue commercial dust mop (both are available at any home improvement store). For heavy cleaning of a soiled floor, sweep away any loose debris and then mop floor with a rag/string mop with water and CLEAR ammonia. 4-5 ounces of ammonia per gallon of water is all that is needed to adequately remove soiling. If desired, the floor can be hosed out and squeegee dried. Try not to leave standing water on floor when and where possible.
- For stubborn tire marks or tracks, use one of the soft bristle brushes (mentioned above) on a pole with a bucket of ammonia and water. Lightly brush affected areas then hose out garage and squeegee dry.
- DO NOT USE BLEACH or any cleaner that contains acids (citrus cleaners, vinegar, etc.) or soap based cleaners. Soap based cleaners leave a residue on the floor that not only detracts from the shine, but also becomes increasingly slippery should the floor get wet.
