Resin floors are a popular choice for many homes and businesses, as they’re hard-wearing and easy to maintain. However, resin floors can become dull and discoloured if not looked after properly.
As with many floors, regular cleaning and maintenance are essential to maintain their good condition and ensure they last for years.
Here’s a comprehensive guide on how to clean resin floors.
The first step in cleaning resin floors is to prepare the working area. Start by removing any furniture and other items to ensure the floors are clear and access is easy. Next, vacuum or sweep the floor to remove any dirt and debris from the floors.
2. Cleaning & Mopping
Once the area is free from dirt and debris, it’s time to clean the floor. It is recommended to start with a low-alkaline resin floor cleaning fluid such as Mapei Ultracare Multicleaner, specifically designed for resin floors which should be used in minimum quantities with warm, clean water.
It is also essential that a clean microfibre mop is used and regularly rinsed out throughout the process to avoid any streaks and to ensure the floors are fully cleaned. It is recommended to avoid using too much water, this can saturate the floors and lead to longer drying times and watermarks.
3. Stubborn Marks & Intensive Cleaning
Any stubborn heel marks or dirt may require extra attention and gently cleaning with a white pad to remove, ensuring not to abrade too hard.
In higher traffic and commercial areas is recommended that regular mechanical cleaning regimes are adopted to ensure that the surface is kept clean and stubborn dirt is removed.
4. Regular Cleaning & Maintenance
Regular cleaning & maintenance is the key to keeping resin floors looking their best. Regularly sweep and mop the floor to remove dirt and debris.
By following these steps, you’ll be able to keep your resin floors looking their best for years and ensure that the floor lasts for a long time and remains in good condition.
5. Resin Floor Refinishing
Resin floors can often be refinished to make the surface look brand new again. This process would usually involve cleaning, degreasing and abrading the existing floor, making any notable repairs to scratches, holes or cracks. A new resin application would then be applied to the surface in either the same colour or change to a new colour and then sealers would be applied.
This process can usually be undertaken within 2-3 days with stunning results.
