Aftercare for Amtico

By On December 14, 2017 No Comments

We deep clean and restore Amtico flooring. Why might Amtico need our attention? Although it is a durable and hard-wearing flooring alternative it is susceptible over time to yellowing. It will also experience day-to-day usage so will inevitably suffer from wear.

stone floor cleaning durhamThis shows in the surface coatings being worn down or even removed. Once this is the case, the vinyl underneath is likely to be damaged more easily. This is where our specialist Amtico cleaning techniques offer great reward. Once your floors are fully restored they will be left looking great and fully protected.

This offers you peace of mind and allows you to enjoy your beautiful and luxurious flooring. The following information has been put together to inform our clients of how best to care for their floors after our cleaning.

Once your Amtico floors have been cleaned and sealed they will require routine cleaning. This cleaning becomes much easier once they have been appropriately sealed.

What is required?

  • Make sure to regularly hover dust and particles away from your floor. If this can be done daily it will mean that particles are not left to deteriorate the surface once again. As you can imagine even the smallest particles can act like sandpaper on your newly applied surface coating.
  • Getting into good habits with cleaning floors is always beneficial. Get your family helping! Delegate the task or build up a shared routine.
  • Use only the products that we suggest as these will be sensitive enough not to damage the floor sealer but will keep it looking great. Harsh chemicals can dull the surface of the floor and leave it looking unsightly.
  • Do not use scrubbing brushes to clean up stains or spillages. These will only scratch away at the grain pattern of your floor.

We have a lot of information on our website about Amtico; how it is made, why it was developed and much more. We often find that it is so often the case that an image speaks a thousand words.

This picture is a close up of an Amtico floor that we restored in Middlesbrough. Our clients had chosen to lay this flooring type in their hallway of their newly built house. They had done quite a bit of research prior to having it installed and were extremely pleased with it.

Amtico Cleaners MiddlesbroughOver time they noticed that it had lost its lustre a little. We were asked about whether we could clean it and if there were any limitations due to the way that it is laid.

We were happy to offer information and advice and to confirm that we could confidently clean it to like-new.

Amtico boards, when installed, are laid onto a screeded floor. This provides a level-base for the individual pieces to be laid onto. It is almost impossible to imagine how the floor will look once it is complete as the boards can often be slim.

This image shows exactly how Amtico replicates other flooring types. The wood grain looks beautiful and our clients have the added bonus of improved durability in relation to a real wood floor.

Our clients commented on the ease of maintenance; the floor needed regular hovering to remove particles brought in from the outside. Discipline in doing this will elongate the lifespan of your floor as it is often the particles that work to damage or wear the surface of your flooring.
