Use & Care
Your FLOR can be installed on virtually any clean, hard and dry indoor surface. DON’T install your FLOR over carpeting or padding, floors with hand-painted or vintage varnish finish, unfinished waxed floors, any floors finished with a solvent-based sealant, oil-based finish, unsealed concrete or outdoors.
If you have a concrete floor, be sure it is smooth and fully cured for a minimum of 90 days. To seal concrete surfaces, use a non-solvent-based sealer. Let the surface dry completely before installing your FLOR.
With regular vacuuming, your FLOR will maintain its appearance and provide many years of enjoyment. If FLOR is the only soft surface in a room of hard flooring (e.g., wood, stone or ceramic), it may collect its fair share of dirt, so frequent vacuuming is recommended. Vacuuming and spot-cleaning will cure most problems, but keep in mind they are just two steps in the overall maintenance process.
Like other carpeting, FLOR fibers can become matted and embedded with soil over time. Grease and oil, in particular, can trap dry particles and result in a dull-looking carpet. When this occurs, contact a carpet cleaning professional for a general cleaning. We recommend wet extraction or steam cleaning for nylon and polyester tiles. Wet cleaning results in some downtime of the carpet and potential dampness between and around tiles. Dry extraction is less recommended but does have a shorter downtime and leaves minimal chance for dampness.
