The atmosphere of a living room is significantly determined by the floor covering. Parquet, laminate, marble, tiles or vinyl have different requirements for an effective care. POLIBOY has developed a highly efficient concentrate for these special demands. Just a few splashes are sufficient for a whole bucket.
Parquet and Laminate Floor Care in action
Why parquet care?
Wooden floor is extremely strained and should be cared to maintain the elasticity of the wood and to prevent it from getting chapped and brittle. The regularly wiping with a parquet care product protects the parquet from scratches, wear, abrasion, dirt and humidity. The POLIBOY Parquet Care Concentrate with moisture protection is excellently suited to clean and care parquet floorings as well as all lacquered, glazed and sealed wooden areas, like stairs, doors, planks, panels and wall covering.
Natural avocado and sesame oil nurture the wood, freshen up the colour and reduce the bleaching out.
At first application, the product should be applied sparingly and undiluted, spread over the whole area and then wiped. For regular floor cleaning and caring cases, the product should be given into the water. As wiping care it is also suited for oiled wood and floorings. The highly rich concentrate is as double productive as conventional cleaning products. Two caps are sufficient for one bucket of water.
In general wooden floorings should never get wiped damp or wet. No water should drip off the wipe, because planks and joints could swell.
Alternatively you could use the POLIBOY Wood Cleaner Concentrate for a regularly cleaning of all washable wooden floorings – if sealed, lacquered, waxed or oiled. The active substances of the contained orange provide a fresh and hygienic fragrance.
The protection of the wood can be maintained by the valuable care substances: Natural jojoba oil cares the wood due to an oil-replenishing effect and the soap-free and ph-neutral formula prevents the wood from bleaching out.
The POLIBOY Wood Cleaner is also highly concentrated compared to convenient cleaners, it is rich and sparing.
Tipps & Tricks
Laminate is a wood reproduction and consists of a fibreboard that is coated with photographic paper and covered with a protection layer, often melamine resin. A high-density fibreboard (HDF) forms the backing layer. On the bottom a counter draw protects the flooring against deformation and ground waves. The selection of decors ranges from wood to stone and up to fantasy decor. Laminate is a particularly stain-insensitive, resistant against scratches and abrasion and lightfast.
The POLIBOY Laminate Care Concentrate with 100% pure orange oil provides a strong cleaning with a reliable moisture protection. The vegetable components acts dust binding for a streak-free shine and hygienic freshness. For heavy soiling, the concentrate can be dosed higher and stains can even be treated with pure concentrate. After application, the object should be wiped with a damp cloth.
Although laminate floorings are resistant to moisture, you need to take care that no water enters the joints, as for all other wooden floorings as well. The water lets the material swell and the upper protection layer rupture.
Small superficial scratches on parquet or laminate floorings can easily be covered with the POLIBOY Furniture Polish Light. Only apply the product onto a clean, lint-free cloth and wipe over the small scratches on the surface. Eventually the application needs to be repeated.
Cork floorings are made of the bark of the cork oak which grows in Spain, Portugal and the other Mediterranean countries. For the production of cork parquets the bark needs to be shredded, mixed with natural resins and pressed in blocks of which the cork plates will be cut afterwards. Then the cork plates will honed from one side. The advantage of cork plates is that they are anti-slip, elastic, sound absorbing, and very resistant. Cork floorings provide a pleasant atmosphere and are foot warm.
The cleaning of cork floorings is very easy. Just sweep or vacuum it regularly and wipe it wetly from time to time. POLIBOY Laminate Care Concentrate with 100% pure orange oil is optimal suitable for this cleaning case. The vegetable components act dust binding and care for a hygienic freshness.
Sensitive natural stone floorings, e.g. marble or granite, need a special care and protection. Marble has a porous structure and is very irritable against acid and strong detergents.
Granite is less sensitive and weather-resistant. Convenient cleaner on a polymer basis are only insufficiently suitable for these surfaces because they leave streaks and reduce the natural gloss. Best suitable is a solvent-free care with nurturing waxes that generate a deep gloss and a long-term protection of the stone and marble surfaces. Dust can’t enter into the stone or joints and can be removed completely.
Linoleum is a natural floor covering that is produced environmentally friendly from renewable resources and which became very popular again. Linseed oil, resins, cork, wood- and limestone meal are still the main components of the flooring. The basic mass needs to be applied in a hot state on the backing layer of jute. Afterwards it needs to cool down and dry until it receives the needed stability. Linoleum is robust, long-lasting, antistatic and hygienic, but due to the organic components (cork- and wood meal) it is more sensitive than the synthetic floorings. There is a risk that due to permanent humidity the floorings could swell and that the alkaline substances cause e.g. a discoloration. For a cleaning after the initial care, the floor should be wiped with a slightly damp wipe care.
