DURANTE Garage Tiles Care and Maintenance Guide

Thank you for choosing DURANTE Garage Tiles! To keep your tiles looking their best and ensure longevity, please follow this comprehensive care and maintenance guide.

General Maintenance:

1- Regular Cleaning:

  • Sweeping: Use a broom or a dust mop to remove loose dirt and debris regularly.
  • Vacuuming: For a deeper clean, use a vacuum with a hard floor setting to avoid scratching the tiles.

2- Washing:

  • Mild Detergent: Mix a mild detergent with warm water and use a soft mop or cloth to clean the tiles.
  • Rinse Thoroughly: Ensure all detergent residue is rinsed off with clean water to prevent slipping and ensure a clean surface.
  • Drying: Allow tiles to air dry or use a clean, dry cloth to wipe them down.

Stain Removal:

1- Common Spills:

  • Water and Mild Spills: Wipe up spills promptly with a damp cloth.
  • Oil and Grease: Use a degreaser suitable for polypropylene surfaces. Apply the degreaser, let it sit for a few minutes, then wipe clean with a damp cloth.

2- Stubborn Stains:

  • Stain Remover: Use a commercial stain remover safe for polypropylene. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Scrubbing: Use a soft-bristled brush for gentle scrubbing. Avoid using abrasive pads that may scratch the tiles.

Special Considerations:

1- Chemical Exposure:

  • Avoid Harsh Chemicals: Do not use solvents, bleach, or acidic cleaners on the tiles as they can cause damage.
  • Safe Cleaners: Opt for pH-neutral cleaners designed for polypropylene surfaces.

2- Heat and Fire Safety:

  • Avoid Direct Heat: Do not place hot objects directly on the tiles to prevent melting or warping.
  • Fire Safety: Keep tiles away from open flames or heat sources exceeding 120°C (248°F).

Preventative Measures:

1- Furniture and Heavy Objects:

  • Protective Pads: Use furniture pads under heavy objects to prevent indentations and scratches.
  • Avoid Dragging: Lift and place objects instead of dragging them across the tiles.

2- Environmental Factors:

  • UV Protection: DURANTE tiles are UV resistant, but prolonged exposure to direct sunlight may cause slight discoloration over time. Consider using shades or blinds in areas with intense sunlight.
  • Temperature Fluctuations: DURANTE tiles are designed to withstand temperature variations but avoid extreme conditions where possible.

Routine Inspection:

1- Check for Loose Tiles:

  • Regular Inspection: Periodically check for any loose tiles and snap them back into place if necessary.
  • Edge and Corner Tiles: Pay special attention to edge and corner tiles as they are more prone to loosening.

2- Tile Replacement:

  • Damaged Tiles: Replace any damaged tiles promptly to maintain the integrity of the flooring.
  • Matching Tiles: Keep a few extra tiles from the original installation batch for seamless replacements.

Additional Tips:

  • Matting: Use entrance mats to reduce dirt and moisture tracked onto the tiles.
  • Soft Wheels: Use carts and equipment with soft wheels to prevent surface damage.
  • Frequent Movement: For areas with frequent movement, ensure tiles are securely locked in place to prevent shifting.
