How to Maintain Your Clean Room Flooring

clean room flooring

Your clean room flooring is more than just a surface to walk on; it’s a vital aspect to the integrity of your environment. Now, more than ever, front line workers are in need of immediate solutions that provide benefits with little maintenance. With BioLock from SelecTech, you can have a flooring solution that exceeds your expectations.

As with any antistatic flooring solution, interference from electrostatic discharge, as well as particles in the air and floors surface, can result in adverse effects.

However, you’re reading this article because you’ve made an excellent investment, or are considering to do so, in Static Stop’s line of innovative static control flooring. However, how you care for your new flooring is just as critical as deciding to install our product!

 

Choosing the right cleaning solutions

Although they’re readily available, cleaning your clean room flooring with commercialized products is not recommended. This type of product typically contains several different harsh ingredients that will compromise the integrity of your flooring.

Of course, keeping your floors clean of dirt, debris, and other residue is also key to maintaining the unique properties. However, when it concerns mopping or washing your floors, check out specially crafted ESD floor detergents like ProtectOHM ESD™ cleaner. This cleaner has conductive materials that will enhance the static performance of the flooring rather than subdue it.

 

Preserving your cleanroom flooring

Beyond the maintenance of your flooring, added measures for preservation will also help extend the effectiveness of the innovative properties. To begin with, many static control floor options are much easier to maintain if they’re treated with an ESD finish. Softer materials, like vinyl, are easily scratched by heavy equipment and sharp objects. By applying ESD finishing, you’re not only preserving the properties of the floor, but you’re also helping extend the integrity of the surface of the floor.

Understanding the unique qualities of your clean room flooring is crucial for getting the most out of it. Although our anti-static flooring solutions require very little in regards to upkeep, when the time comes, you’ll want to be sure to have the best cleaning solutions on hand.
