Tuesday's Ask The Expert: Caring For Rubber Floors

September 29, 2009
Tuesday''s Ask the Experts question from a cleaning professional on the International Custodial Advisors Network (ICAN) "Ask the Experts" page: What is the best care for rubber gym floors when mopping?
The answer:
Rubber gym floors respond well with damp mopping using a neutral-pH cleaner (7-9 on the pH scale). Avoid flooding the floor; just damp mop. Avoid mineral spirits, paint thinners, strippers or any petroleum-based product. They will damage the flooring. — Lynn E. Krafft, ICAN/ATEX, lekrafft@juno.com
