Core Tech flooring is a superior product that offers the beauty of wood with the durability of laminate. It is designed to withstand heavy foot traffic and resist scratching, staining, and fading. But like any flooring, it will eventually need to be cleaned. Here are some tips on how to clean your Core Tech flooring to keep it looking like new.
First, sweep or vacuum your floor regularly to remove dirt and debris. We recommend using a soft-bristled brush attachment on your vacuum cleaner to avoid scratching the surface.
For everyday cleaning, use a damp mop or cloth. Avoid using excessive water, as this can damage the flooring. We also recommend avoiding cleaners that contain wax or polish, as these can leave a dull haze on the surface of the floor.
If you have spills or marks on your floor, spot clean them with a mild detergent and water solution. Be sure to rinse the area afterwards with clean water to remove any residue. Do not use abrasive cleaners or scrub pads, as these can damage the surface of the flooring.
If your Core Tech flooring has lost its lustre, you can use a specialty laminate floor cleaner to restore its shine. Follow the instructions on the cleaner carefully and be sure to rinse the area afterwards with clean water.
What You Will Need
-Vacuum with attachments
-Soft bristle brush attachment
-Carpet cleaner (optional)
-1/4 cup baking soda
-1/4 cup white vinegar
-1/2 cup rubbing alcohol
-Clean cloths or rags
Preparing the Floor
Before you begin cleaning your Core Tech floor, it is important to prepare the surface. First, remove any loose dirt or debris from the floor using a broom or vacuum. Next, use a damp mop to wipe away any remaining dirt or grime. Be sure to wring out the mop head thoroughly to avoid leaving streaks on the floor.
Once the floor is prepped, you can begin cleaning. Core Tech recommends using a neutral pH cleaner for best results. You can either use a commercial cleaner designed for use on laminate floors or make your own DIY solution using white vinegar and water.
To clean your floor with a commercial cleaner, simply follow the instructions on the bottle. For a DIY solution, mix 1 cup of white vinegar with 1 gallon of warm water. Mop the solution onto the floor and allow it to sit for 3-5 minutes before wiping it away with a clean, damp mop.
Once you’ve finished cleaning, be sure to dry the floor completely with a clean towel to avoid streaking.
Cleaning the Floor
Assuming that your Core Tech flooring is the standard type that is found in many commercial buildings, it is a vinyl composition tile (VCT). These tiles are easy to clean and maintain, but they do require regular care to keep them looking their best. Here are some tips on how to clean your VCT floor:
-Sweep or vacuum the floor regularly to remove dirt and debris.
-For a more thorough cleaning, mop the floor with a solution of warm water and mild detergent.
-Rinse the floor well after mopping.
-Stubborn stains may require scrubbing with a stiff brush or power washing.
-If you power wash, be sure to use a low-pressure setting and hold the wand at least six inches from the surface of the tiles.
Following these tips will help to keep your Core Tech flooring looking like new for years to come.
Maintaining the Floor
Caring for and maintaining your Core Tech flooring is easy with just a little daily attention. For best results, sweep or vacuum your floor regularly to remove dirt and debris that can dull the finish. Be sure to use a soft brush attachment on your vacuum cleaner to avoid scratching the surface. Mop your floor frequently with a damp mop, using only plain water or a moderate-grade, pH-neutral soap. Avoid over-wetting the floor, as this can damage the finish. Never use harsh chemicals, abrasive cleaners, harsh soaps, waxes or polish on your Core Tech floor — these products can damage the surface and void your warranty.
