Subfloor must be perfectly plane, solid, without cracks, clean and dry before MABOS® is laid.
Before laying, planks and tiles should be left at least 48/72 hours inside the premises where they are to be laid. The area should be appropriately acclimatized in advance.
Place the metal foil onto the previously cleaned subfloor with the shiny side down. Place a foil next to the other, for the subfloor total surface to be covered. The distance between the foils should not exceed 3/4 mm. and the edges should never overlap.
In the case of laying over underfloor heating, this should be switched on beforehand, following the procedures and checks required by the relevant European standards.
The MABOS® flooring system requires little maintenance, however there are some simple rules are recommended.
The most important is to have a doormat or grate at the entrance, to stop dirt being brought inside. This helps a great deal in keeping maintenance costs low and increases the durability of the floor. It is also important to place pads beneath the feet of furniture, tables and, chairs.
Solvent based polish or glazed varnishes; acetone or any type of solvent is to be avoided in contact with the surface.
For the general cleaning; the following method should be used:
Use a vacuum cleaner or broom or an electrostatic cloth to remove dust and dirt from the flooring.
Wash the floor; for full cleaning and sanitation of MABOS® flooring, use an appropriate detergent diluted in water and applied with a damp cloth or micro-fibre mop. We recommend the use of Emu-SF, a detergent specifically created for cleaning PVC flooring.
Allow the flooring to dry before opening the area for use.
EMU-SF is an excellent detergent for professional use; it reduces the build-up of dirt by forming a protective film which gives MABOS® a natural sheen.
Dilution: for ordinary cleaning, dilute approx. 50ml of Emu-SF per litre of water. For very dirty floors increase the dose up to approx. 150ml per litre of water.
If floor-washing machines are used, we recommend low velocity cleaners.
