There are a variety of cleaning methods for different types of commercial floors. Rubber floors are common in commercial spaces like fitness centres, offices, schools, daycares, community centres, medical facilities, and other public spaces with high foot traffic. Individual rubber tiles are the most ideal, as they allow for easy replacement. They are low maintenance, durable, water resistant, and have great traction. Regular cleaning and maintenance is integral for keeping them in good condition and minimizing safety hazards.

Stay Away from Harsh Chemicals

Potent chemicals cause corrosion, staining, and bleaching. Use a mild, PH-neutral cleaner or a commercial rubber floor cleaner to mop rubber floors. Warm water and dish soap is an easy homemade cleaning solution that works wonders. Commercial cleaners are another great alternative, as they do not require dilution and are ready-to-use.

Remove Scuffs

Scuffs are a common problem with rubber floors. They can be a pain, but are easy to remove with a little elbow grease and a microfibre cloth or an eraser. If that doesn’t do the trick, make a paste out of baking soda and water and apply to the mark. Avoid using abrasive sponges and brushes to prevent chips.

Wipe Up Spills

Rubber floors are not compatible with water and can cause accidents. Prevent slips, trips, and falls by wiping up spills immediately. Allow floors to fully dry and use a caution sign after cleaning to prevent safety hazards.

Use Rubber Sealer

Rubber sealer is ideal for protecting and reviving worn out commercial rubber floors. A sealer creates shine and acts as an additional layer of protection against wear and tear. Not all rubber floors require sealing. Always refer to manufacturers recommendations.

Don’t Oversaturate

Rubber floors are water resistant; not waterproof. Allowing spills absorb is not a good idea. Excessive water can deteriorate the adhesive on rubber floors and cause them to warp and curl. The only way to fix a warped or curled rubber tile is to replace it.
