Amtico Care & Maintainance
Your new Amtico floor is an investment and with simple care and maintenance it will be a source of pride for many years to come. An Amtico floor is extremely hardwearing – scuff, slip and dent resistant but even this tough surface can be scratched and marked by sharp grit and other objects. Basic precautions will help keep your floor looking good.
Scratching. Use fibre matting to remove excess grit, dirt and moisture. Sweep your floor more often. Use Amtico International Floor Dressing for that extra protection.
Scuffing. As part of your routine cleaning use Amtico International Floor Cleaner, or gently rub with a wet non-scratch scouring pad recommended for non-stick saucepans.
Sticky Floor. If greasy, remove solids with absorbent paper then wash with diluted Amtico International Floor Cleaner. If there are dull residues, mop floor again and avoid exceeding the recommended concentrations of product. Avoid using ‘other’ cleaning products, for example washing up liquid.
Staining. Blot up spillage with absorbent paper and wash with diluted Amtico International Floor Cleaner. Use a wet non-scratch scouring pad if necessary then rub remaining stain with turpentine. Leave for 30 minutes, and then rinse with water.
Floor Indentation. Protect your floor under heavy furniture with wide bearing cups. For chairs and frequently moved furniture, use easy swivelling wide wheel casters or felt pads. The subfloor beneath the tiles may be permanently indented if load bearing devices are not used.

It is highly recommended that you should not wash your Amtico floor until 48 hours have passed after installation.
Amtico floors are non-porous so do not absorb and moisture. If you are mopping your floor or spill some water on it you will either have to dry it with a cloth or allow the moisture to evaporate. If the floor is in a public area you should take precautions and provide warning signage.
