Cleaning and Maintenance Tips,

  • Cleaning is a daily procedure. Proper maintenance will help extend the life of your floor and protect its special slip-resistant surface.
  • Dust, dirt and spills are the enemy – try to remove them as promptly as possible!
  • Mop your floor daily with a solution of lukewarm water and 3–6oz. of Harlequin Daily Cleaner.
  • Always use a wet/dry vacuum to remove dirty water after cleaning.
  • Stubborn scuff marks can be removed from the floor with the use of Harlequin Heavy Duty Cleaner, also ideal for high-traffic areas.
  • Busy, heavy use studios can meet the demands of daily cleaning with the use of an automatic scrubbing machine, such as Harlequin’s Micro-Mini Scrubber.
  • DO NOT apply any type of floor sealer, finish or wax of any type.
  • DO NOT sweep or mop the floor with oil treated mops or brooms.
  • DO NOT scrub the floor with hard polyester or nylon pads, steel wool, wire brushes or abrasive floor cleaners.
  • Remind dancers not to wear outdoor shoes on the floor. If outdoor shoes must be worn, wipe them before stepping on the floor.
