Karndean Floor Cleaning


Karndean Floor Cleaning

You love the looks and strength of your Karndean floor. It is exceptionally durable and can remain in great condition for decades. The only thing which you have to do is to care for it well. Is Karndean floor cleaning simple? It is not rocket science for sure, but there are tricks and tips that you should be aware of and stick to strictly.

1. Vacuuming with Caution

Some people encourage you to vacuum your vinyl floor while others say that it is completely out of the question. Who’s right? You can use a vacuum cleaner for picking up dust and dirt weekly and several times a week, if needed, provided that it is safe for vinyl. The instruction manual will give you the answer. Generally, you should not use the so-called beater bar attachment for Karndean floor cleaning, but one with soft bristles. Check the wheels of the vacuum and confirm that they are smooth to avoid scratching the floor. Wearing and imperfections could be more damaging than you think.

2. Less Is More

Stronger solution means better cleaning? Not really, as the chemicals could cause harm. Always stick to the recommended ratio of cleaning product to water for when cleaning your Karndean flooring . It is best if you use a pH neutral cleaner for maximum protection. Soaking the mop too much is not a good idea either. If it’s too soggy, you will end with small pools of the solution which may be difficult to rinse. Another key thing to note is that higher water temperature may not be good for your floor.

3. Reliable Damage Protection

Scratching is the biggest threat to Karndean floors and you have to keep this in mind when cleaning yours. Always use a tool with soft bristles for dry cleaning. Always sweep or vacuum the floor before wet cleaning to prevent small debris from getting stuck to the strings of the mop and causing scratches. Never use abrasive cleaning products or tools.

4. Meticulous Stain Removal

Blot the spill as soon as possible. If it’s solid, scoop it from the outside in. The product which you use for stain removal must be formulated especially for the stain that you are dealing with. You should be extra careful with home cleaners such as baking soda, for example. While it can absorb most beverage stains, you should not rub it hard as it can cause scratches. You must remove every grain after use to avoid this problem.

5. Achieving Lasting Refreshment

It’s perfectly possible to get an attractive satin finish after Karndean floor cleaning. The floor must be stripped of dirt and grease in the first place and they rinsed thoroughly. The finishing product can be applied only after complete drying. The key to success is to apply not one, but two or three layers of coating. The technique involves waiting for the previous layer to dry completely before applying the next one.

    Having received either no response or a very unhelpful response from a few other firms, I contacted Paul during the New Year to carry out some urgent carpet cleaning I required. He responded instantly in a very positive manner and offered to carry out the work on a bank holiday. Paul proceeded to carry out a speedy, professional and truly amazing job - the floors were unrecognisable afterwards - and I cannot recommend his friendly 'can do' attitude highly enough.

    Paul did a great job steam cleaning all the stone floors in our holiday cottages and then put a sealer on top.

    This is the second time we have used the carpet cleaning service of Paul, and again he turned up exactly on time and carried out the cleaning with the expected professionalism required. Our carpets are now like new and at such reasonable rates too. We will happily continue to not only use Paul but recommend him to others too.
