How do you clean rubber floors? Dos and Don’ts

Imagine the wear and tear of a crowded gym floor or a high traffic vet clinic. Rubber flooring has become ever popular in these busy environments, and this is in part because rubber flooring is so durable, cost-effective and easy to clean. Our neutral pH cleaner and degreaser is the ideal cleaner for rubber floors.

 So how do you clean rubber floors once you’ve got the right product to clean with?

Whether you have more than 12 million square feet of flooring or just a few tiles in your small home gym, our neutral pH cleaner is perfect for all shapes and sizes of rubber floors.

 The Smartest Approach to Cleaning and Maintaining Rubber Floors:

  • Follow cleaning manufacturers instructions. Instructions vary from cleaner to cleaner. Our cleaner and degreaser is formulated to be diluted 2 oz per gallon. If you use more or less of the cleaner, the outcome will not be as effective or you are running the risk of wasting product and harming your floor.
  • Be proactive. The beauty about rubber tiles is they are easily replaceable. If you see that a part of your rubber flooring is getting too much wear and tear, it will be safer in the long run to replace it before someone gets hurt or it causes further damage.
  • Keep the outside clean. The cleanliness of your gym, store or shop starts outside, since people will be tracking in whatever is outside. This means paying attention to the cleanliness of your parking lot and sidewalks and keeping them as dirt and grease-free as possible.
  • Have indoor and outdoor mats. It is recommended to have 15 feet (or three strides worth) of indoor and outdoor walk-off mats both on the outside and inside of your entrance door to trap dirt.
  • Vacuum (or sweep) frequently. It is crucial to do this at least once a day, depending upon foot traffic. This will make the mopping process much quicker and effective. This also keeps grit off the floor, which prevents unnecessary wear and tear on the floor.
  • Add a protective coating. Our sealant not only makes cleaning easier and more effective, but it makes your mats more waterproof, last longer and adds shine and luster. This preventative step will lengthen the intervals between needing to replace tiles and will prevent staining and other damage.
  • Daily maintenance. Sweeping and mopping rubber flooring on a daily basis is the best way to extend the lifespan and maintain an impeccably clean—and easy to clean—floor.

Follow these steps and your rubber floors will serve you and your business for years to come.

Find the Best Type of Rubber Flooring for You

The benefits of rubber flooring are plenty. But once you have been convinced that you want to install rubber flooring in your home or facility, the next question is, what type of rubber flooring is right for you?

Regardless of the type of rubber flooring you use, our rubber flooring sealer benefits any style.

One of the perks of using rubber flooring is the range of options you have to meet your particular needs. Whether you are using it for your home in a kitchen, garage, bathroom, basement or playroom, or are using it for a larger commercial facility, there is a style of rubber flooring that is best for you, and paired with rubber flooring sealer you will have a comfortable, easy to maintain floor that can last you  20 years or more.

Types of Rubber Flooring:

  • Sheeting. Similar to installing wall-to-wall carpet, this type of rubber flooring comes on a roll, and is sized based on the longest wall where it will be installed. This type of flooring is customizable and available in different thickness, designs and patterns, and is ideal in workshops and garages as it is water resistant and does not have any cracks, unlike rubber tiles. It is also great in areas where there are corners and other obstacles, as it can be cut to precisely fit an area.
  • Tiles. If more intricate, multicolored patterns are what you are after, then tiles may be your best bet. Because water can seep in through the seams, tiles are ideal for areas where there is not a lot of water usage. It’s a bit tricky to calculate correctly how many tiles you need, and some cutting may be required to ensure a precise fit. These are the most popular choice for playrooms, rec rooms and playgrounds.
  • Mats. Rather than covering an entire floor surface, these are used on top of an otherwise hard surface such as slate or marble to make it more comfortable to stand and walk on and slip-resistant. It is a great option for the kitchen where there is a lot of standing. These are easy to clean since it can easily be removed from the area, and they come in a variety of thickness. With a rubber flooring sealer, these mats become even more durable and water resistant.
  • Recycled. This is a great eco-friendly option, where the rubber flooring’s previous life was likely tires or athletic shoes. This type of flooring comes in various forms and once you are done using the flooring, it can be recycled again. It’s the material that keeps giving.

With all of these types of rubber flooring, our rubber flooring sealer is a perfect partner. By sealing your flooring or mats, they will be much easier to clean, and even more resistant to water and chemicals.

Why Rubber Flooring and Rubber Flooring Sealant are Perfect for Bathrooms

Rubber flooring in bathrooms is a great option due to its comfortable, springy texture and it’s anti-slip properties.

Especially given its wide variety of bright or natural colors and textures, rubber bathroom flooring can be as cutting edge and trendy, or as subtle and neutral as you want it to be.

Since there is so much moisture and risk for slipping in bathrooms, rubber flooring paired with our rubber flooring sealant is a perfect candidate.

Rubber flooring provides a durable bathroom floor that is water and slip proof and ready to stand up to the humidity and moisture. Additionally, rubber flooring in bathrooms is perfect because it resists stains and mold and is naturally antimicrobial.  This means that rubber flooring naturally works to kill off any mold or microorganisms that attempt to develop on the flooring. It is extremely easy to clean, especially if you have applied our rubber flooring sealant. One would think that there would be some sneaky drawbacks, but in addition to these benefits, rubber flooring (along with our rubber flooring sealant) is environmentally friendly. So while hardwood or natural stone bathroom tiles are still popular choices, rubber flooring is becoming an increasingly popular option given its springy consistency and anti-slip properties. It is also clearly a much more functional and sanitary material to use in bathrooms than carpet! Because rubber is naturally impervious to liquid and humidity and is stain resistant, this makes maintaining rubber flooring quite easy. Furthermore, when rubber flooring sealant is applied, it is even easier to remove dirt, debris and liquids. Although rubber is resistant to most stains, it is not, however impervious to damage from grease, fat, oils and harsh solvents. It is this sort of exposure that our rubber flooring sealant helps protects against, in addition to making the flooring last and perform even longer. —Clean Break

From replicating marbled stone to speck patterns or natural stone, rubber flooring can compliment or contrast a variety of styles.
  • Long-lasting. This is where the importance of a good rubber flooring sealer comes in. Properly cared for rubber flooring can last a minimum of 20 years.
  • Low Maintenance. While synthetic rubber flooring generally resists stains better than natural rubber, all rubber flooring is easy to maintain. The flooring is easy to mop, and a rubber flooring sealer makes it even easier to clean as it further protects it from wear and tear and discoloration.
  • Soft. While durable and tough, rubber is also commonly used in restaurant and retail stores to relieve the stress of standing. This also makes it a great choice for playrooms, rec rooms and other living spaces.
  • Water Resistant. Because rubber flooring is non porous, this makes it impermeable to liquid. This makes it perfect for bathrooms, kitchens and laundry rooms.
  • Reduces Noise. Depending upon the rubber thickness, rubber flooring can act as a sound barrier between floors.
  • Non-Toxic and Fire Resistant. Rubber resists burns, and additionally does not release noxious fumes in case of a fire.
  • Various Textures. Unlike other flooring choices, rubber flooring can have raised dimples, studs or other textures needed for either functionality (to resist slipping) or design.

Given the many benefits of rubber flooring, it is understandable why this soft, durable material is used in high traffic environments. Combined with our rubber flooring sealer, which makes it easier to clean and more resistant to water and chemicals, rubber flooring can serve you and your industry for decades. —Clean Break
