Cleaning and Caring For Poured Rubber Surfacing

March 11, 2020

How your surface looks is important to you. A floor is rarely just a floor, and frequently needs to say something about the space it’s in. Even standard concrete surfacing says something about where it’s placed: that it may undergo some light to medium wear, that the floor needs to be easily and quickly cleaned, and that the space isn’t necessarily as cosy as say, your bedroom. It’s a floor that says offices, factories, and garages.

Part of what your surface says about the space where it’s placed is how well it’s maintained. This can include how worn or damaged it is, but also covers basic everyday maintenance like how well it’s swept and mopped. Part of your consideration for new surfaces should be how easy a surface is to clean, regardless of how it looks.

With rubber surfacing becoming more and more popular for its ease of installation and convenient, built-in safety features, one of the most popular questions about it is how easy it is to clean. Luckily, the short answer is very.

How to Clean Your Rubber Surface

Poured rubber is no more difficult to clean than any other surface! A scrub brush with mild soap and water is acceptable for routine maintenance on an outdoor rubber surface. For deeper stains or a neglected surface, a standard pressure washer will help you restore your rubber surface, making sure that it’s saying the right things about your space.

For an interior rubber surface, you should take a gentler hand as you would with any interior. Rubber can be treated as carpet and should be vacuumed regularly. For heavy-duty messes, rubber can be cleaned with a carpet cleaner to bring your surface back to peak performance.

Rubber surfacing can also be slip-resistant and shock-absorbing, allowing you to safely, extensively, and quickly work with wet floors to make sure that cleaning doesn’t block off important areas from your space for longer than necessary.

What Else Can You Do to Maintain Your Rubber Surface?

Cautious consumers will naturally be interested in what they can do to keep their rubber surface at brand new quality and depending on your installer and supplier, there are different measures that can be taken. It’s worth looking into sealing your rubber surface once every two years, in order to potentially extend your warranty and keep your surface safe from damaging UV rays.

Besides basic care, however, rubber surfacing doesn’t require any special materials or labour. Extra time and effort to perform basic cleaning can be a serious concern for property owners when they’re considering what kind of flooring they want in their home or businesses.

An investment is made of time, effort, and money, and with that in mind, rubber surfacing is easy to care for, durable, stylish, and safe. It’s low-maintenance, but if you were looking for an extra measure to take to keep your surface looking fresh and brand-new, rubber can also be sealed once every two years to protect against damaging UV light.
