CLEANING AFTER DISINFECTION

The coated fabric should be cleaned periodically in order to maintain its appearance and prevent the build-up of dirt and contaminants. Any stain, spills, or soiling should be cleaned up immediately to prevent the possibility of permanent staining. Use a mixture of liquid soap (neutral pH) and water or our approved cleaning products for coated fabrics to remove stains on the surface of the material. Remove only with a damp white cloth. Lacquers, strong cleaners, detergents, xylene-based solutions, acetone, or ketone (MEK) cause immediate damage and contribute to the deterioration of the material. The use of such cleaners is at the owner’s risk.

DAILY CLEANING

  1. Clean the entire surface using a mixture of 1:1 liquid soap (neutral pH) and water. Do not use soap or cleaning solutions that contain alcohol, ketones, xylene, acetates or solvents (mineral/white spirits).
  2. Completely remove excess cleaner with a white, clean, damp cloth.
  3. Dry the surface.

CLEANING METHODS TO REMOVE TOUGHER STAINS

Step 1:  Coffee, juice, red wine, sauces, chocolate, grease, crayon and suntan lotion.

Remove excess spill with a damp cloth. Clean with a 1:1 mix of neutral liquid soap and water. Next, rinse with clean water and dry.

 

Step 2: Make-up

Use a straight application of neutral PH soap. Wipe with a clean white cloth or soft brush, rinse with clean water, and dry.

 

Step 3:  Blood, urine, feces and all other tough stains

Use a 1:10 mix of Isopropyl alcohol and water. Rinse thoroughly with clean water and dry.

 

Note:  For cleaning use a soft white cotton cloth saturated with the recommended cleaning agent and rub the stain in circles 10 times. Pat dry with another soft white cotton cloth and check the results. Do not use steel bristle brushes, abrasive scouring pads or metal, these cause permanent damage to the fabric. Methods 2 & 3 are not recommended for everyday cleaning!

 

After cleaning, rinse the area with clean water, then dry with a clean, lint-free cloth. Failure to remove chemical the residue will cause discolouration of the coated fabric surface to manifest earlier in the life cycle of the product.

ALL OTHER PRODUCTS

For products other than PERMABLOK  & PERMAGUARD®   follow the steps of Cleaning after disinfection as mentioned above but avoid the use of Isopropyl alcohol (as mentioned in Step 3).
