While rubber flooring is incredibly low-maintenance, it still requires some care to ensure longevity. With a few simple tips, your flooring will look fresh, clean, and healthy for your clients.
Choosing the Right Cleaning Products
Picking the proper cleaning products is essential to maintaining your rubber flooring. Avoid harsh chemicals that could damage or erode the flooring. Instead, opt for a pH-neutral cleaner that's specially designed for rubber flooring. Our Rubber Sport Flooring Cleaner & Degreaser is an ideal choice, made with fitness facility managers in mind. It's safe for daily cleaning and strong enough for regular deep cleaning. Plus, it's eco-friendly and readily biodegradable. You can use it daily with a regular mop and bucket or an automatic floor scrubber.
Rubber flooring for gyms is very durable, and with these simple cleaning tips, you can help your rubber floor last a long time while maintaining its appearance.
How to Clean Rubber Flooring for Gyms
Establishing a cleaning routine both daily and weekly is essential for maintenance and ensuring optimal cleanliness of your gym.
For daily cleaning, you should perform a quick vacuuming or dry dust mopping 1 – 3 times a day. In a commercial setting, you'll also need to mop daily.
When using our rubber floor cleaner, follow these three easy steps:
1. Dilute the solution in water. (1–2 oz. per gallon with a mop & bucket; 10 oz. per gallon with a floor scrubber)
2. se a mop & bucket for routine cleaning and a floor scrubber for regular deep cleaning.
3. Occupy yourself for 5-7 minutes while the cleaner does its job. (When’s the last time you took a post-workout selfie, anyways?) Then mop up or wet vacuum excess with clean water.
Review our rubber floor maintenance guide for a more detailed breakdown of the process.
Is A Floor Scrubber Machine Needed?
A floor cleaning routine needs to include a periodic deep clean with a floor scrubber machine. A floor scrubber machine can remove sweat, oils, and chalk from the surface of the flooring, which increases its lifespan. If you're in the market for a floor scrubber machine, we offer a variety of floor machines for every budget.
By following these simple steps, your rubber flooring will look and perform its best for years to come. If you have any questions about maintaining your rubber flooring or selecting the right cleaning products and equipment, our customer service team is always here to help.
