Spring is fast approaching and at Amtico we couldn’t be more excited for longer, lighter days! However, this does mean the annual spring-cleaning ritual is just around the corner...
Amtico floors are designed to be incredibly durable and therefore require relatively little maintenance, although as we’re sure you’ll agree - everything looks better after a little spring clean! With this in mind, we’ve got a few top tips and tricks to share with you, hopefully making your cleaning ritual a little less of a chore…
The first step to any cleaning process is ensuring you have the right products:

For a quick, regular floor clean, use Amtico Floorcare Maintainer - perfect for removing any marks that won’t disappear with a light sweep or a wipe with the Spillage Remover. It couldn’t be easier to use, simply apply the diluted maintainer with a damp mop.
Of course there are times where even our floors might require a deeper clean to get them glistening again. Mucky kids? Dirty dogs? Red wine spillage? No problem! On these occasions use Amtico Floorcare Stripper and Floorcare Dressing. The Floorcare Stripper removes ingrained dirt whilst the Floorcare Dressing protects the floor, providing a gorgeous satin finish.
As with the Floorcare Maintainer, these products are super easy to use. First apply a solution of Floorcare Stripper with a mop and leave for 10 minutes before thoroughly rinsing clean (we rinse twice, just to be sure!). To achieve the desired satin finish, two coats of the Floorcare Dressing should then be applied to the dry floor using a flat head applicator mop.
So whilst it’s not quite self-cleaning, our cleaning kit is great way to make your floor cleaning more efficient and stress-free and keep your Amtico floor looking as immaculate as it did the day it was installed.
Spring cleaning may be an arduous task but it really pays off when you’re kicking off the new season with a cleansed and refreshed space… Once you’re done, we highly recommend treating yourself to a large piece of cake and a large glass of vino (no spillages please!)
