Cleanability Whether it’s water-soluble stains such as coffee, ketchup, coca cola, wine, etc. or greasy stains like butter, engine oil or permanent marker, all can be removed easily from Flotex flocked flooring. Flotex can save you time and cut your cleaning costs as it is easy to clean, quick-drying and typically needs less water/chemicals than other textile floor coverings.
The unique construction of Flotex flocked flooring is what allows releasing soiling like no other textile flooring. Unlike the looped and twisted fibres of a conventional carpet tile, the smooth straight fibres of Flotex do not trap particles of soil, allowing them to be removed without difficulty during cleaning. Most spills can be cleaned with plain water.
Thanks to its hard-wearing properties and durability benefits, Flotex flocked flooring has a product lifetime that surpasses that of ordinary textiles. Longer lasting, Flotex can help you to reduce cleaning, maintenance and refurbishment costs whilst retaining its visual appearance.
