To prevent buildup of dirt and contaminants, which may cause permanent staining, periodic cleaning is highly suggested. The frequency of cleaning is dependent upon the environmental conditions the material is subjected to.
In general, most common stains can be cleaned using warm, soapy water and clear water rinses. Moderate scrubbing with a medium bristle brush will help loosen soiling materials from the depressions of embossed surfaces.
For more stubborn stains, use Formula 409® commercially available cleaner in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions. Full strength rubbing alcohol or mineral spirits may be tried cautiously as a last resort on very stubborn stains, if the above suggestions do not work.
Indiscriminate use of any solvent or solvent containing cleaner, can severely damage or discolor vinyl. Always follow with a clear water rinse after cleaning with solvents.
Note: Detergents should never be used on a regular or repeated basis for normal cleaning. Morbern recommends repeated rinsing with clear water after any cleaning procedure.
Bleach cleanable: When disinfecting with bleach, dilute with water up to a 9:1 ratio (10%). Liberally apply diluted disinfectant using a sponge. Rinse with cold water several times. Wipe Dry and repeat if necessary.
Caution: Exercise care as rubbing alcohol and mineral spirits are flammable. Use only small quantities of solvents and keep clear of any sources of ignition. Wear protective gloves and ensure cleaning takes place in a well ventilated area.
