Cleaning instructions for textile floors

Textile floors are a popular choice due to their acoustic properties. The key to maintaining them is preventing soiling. It's also crucial to remove stains as quickly as possible once they appear on the surface.

To prevent soiling of textile floors, entrance mats can be strategically placed to help keep the textile floor clean. In addition, regular and thorough cleaning is essential to maintain the textile surface looking tidy for as long as possible. The choice of floor color can also influence how quickly dirt becomes visible on the floor. You can find a printable version of our guidelines at the bottom of the page.

Initial cleaning and daily cleaning of textile floors

When a new textile floor is installed, it should be vacuumed using a brushing vacuum, like the Lindhaus LS50 Hybrid, before use. For vacuuming in tight spaces, the Lindhaus LS38 carpet and floor vacuum is suitable. Use a stain remover appropriate for textiles to clean any stains that occurred during installation. Regular vacuuming and stain removal are also part of daily cleaning methods for spaces with textile floors.

Periodical cleaning of textile floors

Surface cleaning for textile floors is conducted, for example, every tenth cleaning session or as needed. Surface cleaning is performed using a scrubber dryer and Kiilto Pro Jiffy cleaning agent, that is suitable for textiles. The dosage is 3 ml per 1 litre of water.

Basic cleaning of textile floors

When achieving a thorough cleaning of a textile floor is necessary, start by vacuuming with the brushing Lindhaus LS50 Hybrid vacuum cleaner. In tighter spaces, use the Lindhaus LS38 carpet and floor vacuum.

After vacuuming, apply an even layer of Kiilto Pro Jiffy cleaning solution to stained areas (dilution: 10 ml per 1 litre of water) and let it sit for 5–10 minutes. After the contact time, gently brush the stained areas with a soft brush. Next, wash the textile floor using a scrubber dryer, working calmly. We recommend using the Cleanfix TW Compact scrubber dryer designed for textile floors, and Kiilto Pro Jiffy cleaning solution diluted at 10 ml per 1 litre of water.

Alternatively, after vacuuming, apply Kiilto Pro Jiffy cleaning solution to stained areas using a pressure sprayer (dilution: 5 ml per 1 litre) and let it sit for 5–10 minutes. Following this, clean the textile floor with a floor single disc machine using a microfiber pad dampened with water, working calmly.

If the textile floors are heavily soiled, repeat the procedure. Ensure that the floor surface is dry before use. After basic cleaning, it’s also advisable to vacuum the floor with a brushing vacuum cleaner before use.

Removing stains from textile floors

It’s advisable to remove stains as soon as possible upon appearance. Please refer to the care instructions of special materials before stain removal.

In case of wet stains, like spilled coffee, start by blotting most of the stain with a cleaning cloth or paper towel. Spray Kiilto Pro Stain Spurt stain remover onto the stain or onto the cloth. Rub the stain from the outer edges For multiple or extensive stains, a scrubber dryer can be used for removing fresh stains. Ensure that the clean water tank is filled with water.

When dealing with a dried or stubborn stain, allow the stain remover to sit for approximately five minutes. Afterward, gently scrub the stain with a soft brush and absorb the loosened dirt with a cleaning cloth. You can also use a spray-extraction machine for stain removal.

Removing chewing gum from textile floors can be done with a cold spray. Spray the Kiilto Pro Freeze -55°C cold spray directly to the gum. After this the frozen gum can be immediately removed by scraping. Lastly, you can vacuum any crumbs.
