Using Karndean Cleaning Solutions

Karndean Clean

Karndean Clean is a water-soluble everyday cleaner for your Karndean floor and adds extra protection between deep cleans.
  1. With a soft sweeping brush, remove any loose dirt or dust. If you use a vacuum, be sure to switch to the hard floor setting or disable the beater bar first.
  2. Add 1.6 fl.oz. of Karndean Clean (1 notch on the bottle) to approximately 2 gallons of water -or- 1.5 Tablespoons of Karndean Clean to 1 gallon of water.
  3. Mop the Karndean Clean solution onto the whole floor.
  4. Mop any excess liquid and allow the floor to dry before walking on it.

 

Karndean Remove

Karndean Remove assists in removing films and contaminants or prepares your floor before applying Karndean Refresh. Be sure to have both solutions before using Karndean Remove. Note: Karndean Remove can be used without Karndean Refresh to remove films.
