Floorcare

Cleaning Linoleum

Our linoleum floors are easy to clean and maintain thanks to their durable UV Crosslinked Topshield2 finish. The Forbo FloorCare system for linoleum supports two different methods, which are determined by the availability of dedicated tools:

The Commercial/Spray method is the most effective and economical method and is performed by using a one-disk or rotary machine. For situations where a rotary machine is not available or practical, the manual Monel method can be applied.

General Advice

Protect newly laid floors
All newly laid floors should be covered and protected from all other trades during the contract with a suitable non-staining protective covering. Use protective feet on chairs and tables to reduce scratching. Castor wheels should be of soft material suitable for resilient floor coverings (according to EN425)

Use Entrance Systems
As much as 80% of dirt entering a building is brought in by foot traffic. Entrance flooring systems of an appropriate size (ideally more than 6lm) and quality should be used. Forbo Coral or Nuway entrance flooring systems, are independently proven to remove and retain up to 94% of all dirt and moisture entering a building by foot traffic; reducing maintenance costs and maximising appearance retention of adjacent flooring products as well as reducing slip risk. As with any dirt removal system all entrance flooring systems should be regularly cleaned to release the dirt which has been removed.
Forbo Coral | Entrance Flooring System

Cleaning
• Regular cleaning is more beneficial and cost effective than occasional deep cleaning.
• Use recommended cleaning products. High quality cleaning products and equipment ensure efficient maintenance and represent only a small proportion of maintenance costs.
• Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning products.
• Always follow the Health and Safety guidance provided.

Proper use of Floor Care Chemicals
The improper use of cleaning chemicals may cause damage and/or discolouration. Overuse or inadequate rinsing of cleaning chemicals may compromise the performance of the floor.
Abrasive powders or cleansers should not be used.

Linoleum Installation without welding

Benefits of Eliminating Heat Welding

Benefits of eliminating heat welding are:
• 3rd party research shows that net fit seams are as hygienic in
hospital settings as heat welded sheet vinyl.
• Reduced overall installed cost
• Improved aesthetics with no weld lines to disrupt the visual and
accent the seams
• Improved environmental performance with substantial reduction
in CO2 footprint by eliminating the use of a high wattage heat
gun for installation of weld rods.
• Improved Indoor Environmental Quality for installers/building
occupants by elimination of emissions of melting PVC based
welding rods during installation
