General Advice

As with all newly installed floor coverings, Forbo’s vinyl should be protected from heavy traffic, particularly high point load wheeled traffic, for 72 hours and must not be washed for 48 hours after installation.

Cleaning detergent
Forbo recommends using neutral detergent (pH 7) such as Forbo's Monel which also works as an excellent overall appearance retainer.

Note: Avoid the use of highly alkaline products (pH >10).
Products, such as strippers and heavy-duty cleaners, can be harmful to people, to the environment and/or to the finish or even to the flooring itself. Do not take the risk; safe and good alternatives are available for every necessary action. Forbo FloorCare products all fall within a safe pH-range, for other brands consult the supplier.
