|FOR MANUAL CLEANING||FOR CLEANING OF LARGE AREAS|
|buckets, cloths, microfiber cloths, sponges|
If the proper post-laying cleaning procedures have been followed, ordinary cleaning, that is to say the everyday removal of dirt caused by the general use of the tiled surface, will not be a problem.
CORRECT CLEANING is simply done using a floor cloth or damp sponge or microfiber cloth with a neural, everyday tile detergent, such as FILA BRIO, following the manufacturer’s instructions.
Make sure to avoid:
1. Products with waxing, reviving, polishing and shining characteristics;
2. Products that contain hydrochloric acid or its derivatives;
3. Metal scouring pads (pads made from steel or wire wool) or other material that is excessively abrasive.
3.1. METHOD FOR EVERYDAY CLEANING
For the everyday cleaning of vertical surfaces we recommend the use of a ready-to-use detergent, such as FILA BRIO. Spray the product directly onto the surface, holding the bottle vertically and around 20-30cm from the surface, and proceed to clean using a dry microfiber cloth.
Atlas Concorde recommends
Carrying out a de-greasing cleaning using an alkaline-base detergent, such as FILA PS/87, in a ratio of 1:20 in water (if possible warm water, as this increase the efficiency) using a rough cloth or microfiber cloth, before proceeding to rinsing the floor thoroughly;
Should there be any areas not completely cleaned, repeat the de-cleaning operation using a stronger mixture of the diluted solution. The person assigned this task must always undertake a preliminary check on a small section of the surface.
Under certain conditions of use (depending on the nature of the detergent used and/or on the cleaning apparatus that come into contact with the ceramic surface) and ambiences (in humid ambiences that leave natural, inorganic residue such as lime scale), in de-greasing cleaning situations, a “de-scaling wash” with an acid detergent, such as FILA DETERDEK, diluted in a ratio of 1:10, followed by a series of thorough rinses with water (avoid the use of acid detergents when the surface has decorations in marble, metal, precious materials).
