Floor Care



Karndean floors are very hardwearing and like all vinyl products, regular maintenance will enhance the beauty and durability of your new floor.

We recommend that you order a ‘Clean Start’ pack with your new Karndean floor.

  • 50ml Basic Cleaner & Stripper
  • 750ml Dim Glow Floor Protector
  • 750ml Routine Cleaner
  • 1 x Applicator
  • 1 x Green pad (for use with Basic Cleaner)
  • 1 x White pad (for use with Dim Glow)
  • 1 x Set furniture protectors

Newly laid floors should be left for at least 24 hours before you replace furniture or clean the floor. Before using our cleaning and maintenance products, you should sweep the floor with a soft brush.

Routine Cleaning

  • Use regularly for easy cleaning of your Karndean floor.
  • Use 50ml Routine Cleaner (1 divider line) in a bucket with about 8 to 10 litres of water.
  • Keeping the mop damp, not wet, mop over the entire floor area. Leave to dry.

Do ...

  • Use quality fibre mats at entrances to minimise dirt and grit being brought in from outside. (Warning: Avoid rubber backed mats as some types can cause permanent floor discolouration.)
  • Use protective pads under furniture legs to prevent fine scratches.
  • Use load-bearing castors to prevent indentation from heavy items of furniture. Mop up spillages as soon as possible to prevent spots becoming stains.

Do not ...

  • Slide or drag appliances or furniture across the floor
  • Use non-Karndean cleaning products.
  • Some cleaning products contain agents that can damage the floor.
