Top Rubber Flooring Questions


Hi there, you probably have questions about your rubber flooring Don’t worry, you’re not alone Today, we’re here to answer the top four rubber flooring questions. Let’s get started. How to Clean Rubber Flooring. rubber flooring is super easy to clean and
doesn’t require any special tools. First, give it a quick vacuum to make sure you get rid of
any crumbs or dust. You’ll want to use a vacuum without a bar beater Second, you can use a damp mop or cloth with some mild soap
and water. As for gentle soaps, we recommend Tide laundry
detergent or Dawn dish soap. We also have our own rubber floor cleaner
and degreaser. Just a warning, you don’t want to use any
solvent or oil-based cleaners such as Lysol, WD40 or Pine Sol They’ll break down the product over time. Stick to the mild soaps. Number two, how do I get rid of that rubber smell? Unfortunately, rubber smells. Some rubber flooring smells stronger than
others depending on the type of raw material it’s made of and the binder used, but unfortunately that tends to make to smell well, like rubber. But here’s the deal, that smell will air
out over the next few days or weeks after you install your rubber flooring. If you want to speed up the process, we recommend
giving your rubber flooring a nice wash with mild soap and water. This will help reduce some of the rubber smell
a bit more quickly. We also recommend that you have some good ventilation in the
room where you’re installing your rubber flooring. So go ahead and open up some windows maybe even some fans and that will help disperse the rubber smell more
quickly. Number three, can rubber be used outdoors? Yes, it absolutely can. Our rubber flooring was absolutely made to be used and abused. You can use it as playground flooring, patio flooring, or even outdoor gym flooring But, there’s a couple of things you’ll want to keep in mind. First, you’ll want to check and see if your
rubber flooring is UV-stable. Meaning it can be out in the direct sunlight. Otherwise, your rubber flooring can fade over time. Second, though rubber is water resistant,
rain and snow often contains salts that might get trapped in the pores in rubber flooring. And last, with temperature changes comes expansion
and contraction. Be prepared for your rubber flooring to shift during those seasonal changes. Number four, can rubber be used as garage flooring? Yes, it absolutely can. You’re gonna want to keep a couple of things in mind though. First, you’ll probably want to use rubber
rolls instead of rubber tiles. Rubber tiles might come unlocked due to the torque under the vehicle tires. And second Rubber can handle a lot of car fluids,
but you’ll want to wipe them up quickly to keep the floor from staining. Car oil should be avoided, as it
can break down rubber over time. And that’s it! We hope this helped answer a few of your questions
