Caring For Your Kitchen – Flooring

Follow our guide to caring for your flooring and your kitchen will continue to look its best for years to come.

Please always use caution when cleaning your kitchen flooring. Test a small patch out of sight first before applying to a larger area. Refer to individual manufacturer instructions in the first instance as these may differ from the advice given below.

Ceramic and porcelain tiles

Sweep the floor daily, wipe up any liquid spills immediately. Once or twice a week, mop the floor using hot soapy water or specialist product and allow to dry naturally.

Solid wood flooring

Sweep the floor daily, wipe up any liquid spills immediately. Once or twice a week clean the floor with a damp (not wet) mop using a solution of hot soapy water or Pledge Soapy Wood Cleaner.

Protect your floor from scratches and damage by using casters or cups under furniture feet, and by using fibre mats at outside entrances.

Natural stone flooring

Sweep the floor daily, and wipe up any liquid spills immediately. Once or twice a week, mop the floor using a solution of hot water and Lithofin Wash & Clean or specialist floor cleaner. Use Lithofin Powerclean if the floor needs a deeper clean.

Amtico and spacia flooring

Sweep the floor daily with a soft brush or vacuum, wipe up any liquid spills immediately. Once or twice a week, mop the floor using Amtico floor cleaner, apply directly to the floor with a spray bottle and then mop, or use with a bucket and damp mop (rinsing the mop frequently and changing the solution in the bucket when it becomes dirty). Use a micro fibre mop head, as they are excellent at cleaning between bevelled tiles. Scuffmarks that are not removed during routine cleaning may be gently rubbed with a soft scouring pad.

Protect your floor from scratches and damage by using casters or cups under furniture feet, and by using fibre mats at outside entrances (do not use not rubber or latex backed mats as they can leave stains). Avoid all contact with rubber, asphalt, paint and shoe polish.
