Part 4 – Maintenance
4.1 COURTSPORTS GYM FLOOR CARE & INSTRUCTIONS
Upon completion of floor installation, the owners, attendants or individuals in charge are responsible for the upkeep of the building and are to see that the care and maintenance instructions of Courtsports are followed.
Once your floor is completed by Courtsports, it is important to implement an effective daily, weekly, and quarterly maintenance program. Good maintenance practices keep your wood floor looking its best while reducing the wear and abrasion to the surface of the floor. By following the techniques listed below and using quality products, your floor will stay clean and attractive.
Place proper walk-of mats in doorways to keep out dirt and grit.
Install self-adhesive felt pad floor protectors on tables and chairs used on the hardwood floor.
Avoid excess moisture from tracked in water, leaks, or over-maintenance such as wet mopping.
DAILY FLOOR CLEANING:
COURTCLEANZE™ COURT FLOOR CLEANER CONCENTRATE was designed specifically for high gloss court floor coatings to dry rapidly without streaking. COURTCLEANZE™ doesn't leave water sports or residue. It was formulated to offer lasting properties which repel common soils and perspiration. Works to enhance appearance on all gym floor finishes.
Dry mop with the PROMOP equipped with a Microcleanze Fringe Pad attachment to remove dirt, grit, or any other abrasive particles. DO NOT USE DUST MOP TREATMENTS.
Damp mop all spills or spots with a PROMOP equipped with a Microcleanze Cleaning Pad attachment dampened with COURTCLEANZE™ COURT FLOOR CLEANER CONCENTRATED diluted with water at the 1:10 ratio.
Wash microcleanze cleaning and fringe pad attachments as needed.
PERIODIC FLOOR MAINTENANCE
Using a Buffer – Shoe marks and scuffs can be removed by using a white pad and buffer (150-175 rpm) with a 1:10 ratio of COURTCLEANZE™ and water. Lightly mist the floor with the solution as you buff. Periodically clean or replace the white pad. Continue use of soiled pads will cause streaking.
Using an Auto scrubber – if you choose to use an auto scrubber with white pads, dilute COURTCLEANZE™ to the same 1:10 ratio and ensure machine is properly adjusted to remove all cleaner immediately. No moisture should remain on the floor. Wipe up any remaining moisture with a PROMOP equipped with Microcleanze Cleaning Pad. EXCESS MOISTURE CAN DAMAGE THE WOOD.
Make sure all residue from the white pad buffing/cleaning procedure is removed from the floor surface; immediately tack the surface with a PROMOP and Microcleanze Cleaning Pad.
