Rubber/Sport Floor Cleaning
Start cleaning your rubber floor or sport floor by picking up dirt and debris with either a backpack vacuum or dust mop. Vacuuming with a backpack vacuum can prove more effective than dust mops particularly on rubber floors which are often “studded.” The studs can help prevent slip-and-fall accidents, but they can also trap dirt. A vacuum cleaner can remove these dry soils surrounding the studs while being protective of indoor air quality.

|RECOMMENDED BACKPACK VACUUMS:|
After vacuuming, damp mop using a traditional “spaghetti” mop - not a microfiber mop because the surface may be coarse. Use a neutral floor cleaner with a pH of around 7. Change the cleaning solution frequently as well as the mop head as soon as it begins to appear soiled.
|RECOMMENDED CLEANERS / SUPPLIES:|
The fastest and most effective way to clean rubber floors is with an automatic scrubber and a neutral cleaner. For large open areas with a smooth surface, a standard-format automatic scrubber and soft brush will clean deeper and faster than a mop and bucket.
|RECOMMENDED AUTOMATIC SCRUBBERS:|
Uneven floors, such as studded rubber floors, are best cleaned with a cylindrical brush scrubber. Cylindrical brush machines are able to reach deeper into sport floors and through uneven elements like studs or grout lines. These scrubbers are typically very versatile and can be used on a variety of surface types including carpet for interim cleaning situations. A cylindrical brush machine with a cleaning path under 15" will make it easy to move around obstructions or narrow paths such as between gym equipment.
