TIPS FOR CLEANING SLIP-RESISTANT CONCRETE FLOORS:

1. Sweep
2. Wash
3. Rinse
4. Squeegee

The texture of slip-resistant concrete flooring provides you with the traction you need for safety. It also means that you may need to take a different approach to cleaning. Many slip-resistant floor coatings provide a “gritty” surface that is not compatible with cleaning with a mop because the irregular texture can catch the mop strings.

We recommend using a deck brush and warm water to clean floors with slip-resistant coatings. Avoid detergents to maintain a slip-resistant floor as they may create a soap build-up once the water evaporates if not rinsed off properly.

  • In commercial settings, we recommend making it a daily routine to sweep slip-resistant floors. Sweep away debris using a dense, synthetic fibre broom/deck broom.

 

  • If you have a slip-resistant floor at home, try to sweep at least once a week. More often may be necessary in outdoor areas when there is dirt or leafy debris on the ground.

 

  • Spilled liquids should be cleaned up promptly using an absorbent material.

 

  • When needed, clean with plain warm water using a dense, synthetic fibre broom (not a mop). Scrub gently with the broom to free up dirt and dust. If needed, add a sparing amount of a PH-neutral cleaning product to the water (according to manufacturer’s instructions)*

 

  • Use a low-pressure hose to rinse the floor thoroughly before it dries to avoid build-up of cleaning product. After rinsing, collect the excess water with a wet-dry vacuum. Alternatively, use a squeegee to collect the water to a drain or outside.

 

  • Please be advised that detergents can be difficult to rinse off completely. Build-up of residues can make your floor less slip-resistant when it is wet.

 

*Some manufacturers make specific cleaning products for slip-resistant floors.
