Everyday Maintenance

Sweep or vacuum to remove dirt from the surface of your rug.

For Synthesis, Eclipse and Bolon, wipe up spills promptly to avoid stains. Wash your floor as needed with a mop and warm water. For a more through cleaning use soft brushes. Clean flooring with a neutral solution or a slightly alkaline solution by rubbing with a soft brush. Rinse with water after alkaline solution is used. Do not use dishwashing liquids or detergent soap cleaners, which can leave a sticky residue and attract soil, and cause a reduction of gloss.

Always move heavy furniture and appliances with care to avoid gouging or tearing the floor.

Treating Stains & Spills

Stains and spills such as acids, alkalis, blood, catsup, mustard, cleaners, strong soaps, dye, dye markings, food, candy, fruit and fruit juices, grass, iodine, rust, urine:

  • Blot up excess at once.
  • Rub lightly with a cloth dipped in mineral spirits.
  • If paint has dried on the surface, gently peel it from the floor.
  • Clean area with water.

Stains that won't wipe up such as adhesives, asphalt, chewing gum, oil, grease, candle wax, tar:

  • Remove excess with a dull kitchen knife.
  • Rub lightly with mineral spirits on a clean cloth.
  • Clean area with water.

Anywhere Synthetic Sisal

Our Anywhere polypropylene flooring is inherently stain resistant and requires little maintenance. The weave does not absorb moisture and resists fading, so you can easily clean spills with most commercial cleaning agents. Vacuuming is the easiest and best way to remove surface soil. You can also wet shampoo Anywhere, to remove heavy surface soil, or steam clean to remove embedded dirt.
