Talking about the maintenance and maintenance methods of plastic floor

In recent years, plastic flooring has received a lot of consumer epoxy, and more and more schools and hospitals have begun installing plastic flooring. PVC floor refers to the floor made of polyvinyl chloride. Specifically, it uses polyvinyl chloride and its copolymerized resin as the main raw materials, and adds fillers, plasticizers, stabilizers, colorants and other auxiliary materials, and applies the coating process or calendering, extrusion or extrusion on a continuous sheet-like substrate. Crafted.Plastic flooring has strong abrasion resistance, and at the same time, there are more colors, so it is well received by consumers. The texture of PVC floor is soft, so it has good elasticity. It has good elastic recovery under the impact of heavy objects. The texture of coiled floor is softer and more elastic. Very strong impact resistance, has a strong elastic recovery for impact damage of heavy objects, and will not cause damage. The excellent PVC floor can minimize the damage to the human body from the ground, and can disperse the impact on the feet. However, in the process of using plastic floor, regular maintenance must be done to extend its service life. The following is a detailed introduction to the maintenance and maintenance of plastic flooring. 

Maintenance instructions for plastic floor

A sand and gravel protective mat should be placed at the door and hall entrance of the floor using plastic flooring to prevent shoes from bringing sand and gravel into the room and scratching the floor surface. Do not scratch or drag heavy objects with spikes or rough on the floor surface, avoid wearing shoes with nails to walk on the floor, prevent sharp objects from scratching or scratching the floor surface, and try to avoid ladies wearing high heels on the floor On long walks. When handling items, especially when there are sharp metal on the bottom, do not drag on the floor to avoid scratching the floor.

Although the fire rating of plastic flooring is B1, it does not mean that the floor will not be burned by fireworks. Therefore, when using plastic flooring, do not place burning cigarette butts, mosquito coils, charged irons, and high-temperature metal objects directly on the floor to prevent floor injuries. Replace the tubular equipment support feet with those made of PVC or polyurethane (do not use rubber support feet and wheels). Do not use seat cushions with rubber backing. Black rubber will be left on the floor material. Hard to remove stains. It is absolutely prohibited to use hard and rough cleaning utensils (such as steel balls, hundred cleaning cloths, etc.) to clean the plastic floor to prevent sharp objects from hitting the plastic floor. For dirt that cannot be cleaned by conventional methods, consult the relevant person. Do not use acetone, toluene, and other chemicals indiscriminately.

Maintenance method of plastic floor

Avoid a large amount of water staying on the floor surface for a long time. If the floor is soaked with water for a long time, it may be infiltrated under the floor and the floor glue will melt and lose its adhesion. It may also cause the wax water layer on the floor surface to cause floor pollution, or sewage may penetrate into the floor and cause the floor to change color. Avoid direct sunlight and ultraviolet radiation to prevent the floor from discoloring and fading. Clean plastic floors with neutral detergents. Do not use strong acids or alkalis to clean the floor. Do regular cleaning and maintenance.

Use a clean 90% dry mop to clean the ground. For serious pollution, you should clean it locally. Ink, food, greasy, etc. on the plastic floor should be wiped off the dirt, and then the traces should be scrubbed with diluted detergent. When the seal is difficult to remove, you can use a veil and loose perfume to clean it. Do not pour loose perfume on the floor to clean. Be careful not to use super strong multi-purpose detergent to avoid discoloration of the floor. Do not use corrosive solvents such as strong acid, strong alkali, water to avoid damage to the floor.

Compared with solid wood flooring, plastic flooring is less afraid of water and other liquids, so maintenance is easier, and the method of cleaning is very simple. However, you need to choose more carefully when purchasing plastic flooring. Plastic flooring is an artificial flooring that cannot be compared with solid wood flooring in other additives, but its affordable price is its biggest killer.
