Spec-Tec International Coatings Limited acknowledges the responsibility of specifying the correct cleaning and maintenance programme to ensure that newly installed floors retain their appearance and are cared for correctly to have an extended life.

Products in the FactioStone range require no special maintenance or care. A period of seven days should normally be allowed after application of the finish before any heavy wet cleaning is carried out.

During this curing period, which will be dependent on ambient conditions and temperatures, floors should be vacuumed or lightly swept with a soft broom.

 

 

Daily or Weekly Maintenance:

  • 1 Remove all debris and dust using a standard vacuum cleaner with the brushes on the head extended to remove dry and loose dirt.
  • 2 If cleaning mud, first allow it to dry, and remove with a brush. Take care not to abrade the sheen. Clean spot stains, scuff marks and liquid spills (juice, wine, etc) with neutral detergent, warm water and a brush.
  • 3 Rinse twice and soak up any residue with a mop, sponge or towel. If not removed properly, it can act like a magnet and attract dirt and grime.
  • 4 Cleaners that contain bleach should not be used as these may dull the surface

Harsh abrasives and scourers should be avoided.

 

Periodic Maintenance:

  • 1 Remove all debris and dust using a standard vacuum cleaner with the brushes on the head extended to remove dry and loose dirt.
  • 2 Carefully remove any compacted dirt or grime, grease and sticky substances using a neutral detergent, warm water and a brush.
  • 3 Wash the remaining floor with neutral detergent, warm water and a mop. We can recommend ‘Simple Green’ stone cleaner which is available from most hardwear stores.
  • 4 For the removal of chewing gum to the stone we can recommend ‘Dissolve it’ available from most hardwear stores.
  • 5 Remove detergent and water with a wet vacuum.
  • 6 Rinse with clean warm water and re-vacuum.
  • 7 Keep off the floor until all water has evaporated.

Because FACTIOSTONE possesses a durable and unique fade resistant quality, in many years to come with a single application of surface sealer it can be restored to it’s original lustre.
