ROCOCO Luxury Vinyl tile
1. AFTER INSTALLATION
For regular collection Keep traffic to a minimum during the first 48 hours to allow the adhesive to harden. For click collection, keep minimum traffic for at least 24 hours. Then, resume normal traffic after recommended time.
Furniture should not be placed on the floor for 24 hours so the adhesive (and grout, if applicable), have adequate time to dry.
· always move heavy furniture and appliances with care to avoid gouging or tearing the floor. First, lay strips of plywood or hardboard panels on the floor. Then roll, “walk” or slide theseitems on the strips. Do not push or pull appliances and heavy furniture without taking these precautions.
For regular collection
Do not wash or scrub Connections flooring for at least 5 days after installation. This allows the adhesive bond to develop by
preventing moisture and cleaning agents from interfering with the bonding process. Spot cleaning is acceptable, but do not apply excess moisture or cleaning solution.
2. VINYL FLOOR MAINTENANCE
Initial Residential Maintenance after installation
Sweep as necessary with a soft broom, dust mop or vacuum cleaner the floor daily to remove dust, dirt, grit and debris that can damage the floor and become ground into the surface.
Then wipe with a vinyl flooring cleaner (any generic brand cleaner specifically made for cleaning vinyl flooring) using a sponge mop or similar cloth-applicator mops. Be sure to follow the vinyl cleaner manufacturer’s instructions. Floor can be slippery when wet.
After 5-10 minutes, all residue of the cleaning agent should be removed and the floor should be rinsed with a damp mop.
Follow the initial residential maintenance.
Depending on the amount of traffic on the floor, periodic maintenance might help to restore the floor’s original beauty. Use any regular vinyl floor refresher to do the job.
Always remove excess water as it may cause slip and fall hazards. Use soft cleaning towels to spread the cleanser and to clean afterwards.
Do not use :
- Wire or nylon wool scouring pads
- Furniture polish
- Spirt based polish
- Powder or liquid abrasive cleaners
- Bleach or strong detergents
- Hard towels made from fiber, cotton and other abrasive material.
- Do not use soap-based detergents, caustic cleaners or abrasive cleaners.
4. PREVENTIVE INSTRUCTION
- Make sure furniture legs have large surface, nonstaining floor protectors. Replace small, narrow metal or dome-shaped glides with smooth, flat glides, that are flat on the floor. glides should be equipped with self-adhesive felt pads to avoid scratching the surface of the floor. The pads should be checked periodically for grit and wear and replaced when necessary.
- Moveable appliances and furniture should be equipped with easily swiveling casters. They should be at least 2” in diameter with nonstaining hard rubber treads with a minimum 3/4” flat surface width. Do not use ball-shaped casters.
- Place mats at outside entrances to prevent dirt, grit and soil from being tracked onto your floor. Use 100% latex-backed mats (labeled nonstaining), because some rubber-backed mats or carpets may permanently discolor your floor.
- Draw drapes and blinds during peak periods of strong sun-
- light. Flooring, like other home furnishing products, may discolor or fade when over-exposed to the sun.
- Heat-producing appliances such as a refrigerator or range,or hot air registers emitting a direct flow of heat in excess of120º F, even intermittently, can scorch, burn, discolor or fade your floor. Cigarettes, matches and other very hot objects can also damage your floor.
