Cleaning and Maintenance

One of the benefits of Karndean Designflooring is the straight-forward cleaning and maintenance regime.

Karndean Designflooring doesn't trap dirt like many natural and fabric materials. We treat all our products with the K-Guard+ system.  K Guard+uses Polyeurethane (PU) technology to ensure that there is no need to apply an additional surface treatment following installation. It also works as a barrier against scuff marks, stains and fine scratches for the coming years.

Cleaning after installation

  1. Remove all loose debris from the floor using a vacuum, soft sweeping brush or dust mop.
  2. Ensure that all dry adhesive is removed from the surface
  3. Use a damp mop with the recommended Karndean Routine Cleaner, (dilute as applicable) or a PH neutral cleaner and leave to dry

Routine Maintenance

The commercial cleaning and maintenance regime is simple and can be carried out by hand or using mechanical cleaning apparatus.

  1. Vacuum, soft sweeping brush or mop to remove all dust and loose debris
  2. Use a damp mop with the recommended Karndean Routine Cleaner. Only use propriety floor cleaning products. Do not use bleach based products or washing up liquid
  3. Stubborn stains can be removed by spot cleaning with recommended Karndean Routine Cleaner or Basic Stripper

Helpful Tips

  • Avoid dragging or sliding heavy items e.g. furniture. Place non-rubber mattings on entrances. Mop up spillages quickly to prevent stains.
  • Mop up spillages as soon as possible to prevent spots becoming stains. Using Karndean Refresh Hard Floor Protector should ensure better protection from most substances.
  • Use only Karndean cleaning products. Other products may contain agents that can damage resilient floor surfaces
