No more than any other carpet, once fitted and once you’ve carried out the initial clean and polish. To do this, wait 72 hours to allow the adhesive to dry then use our stripper and apply to the surface of the flooring with a mop. Leave this for five minutes and then mop off with clean water. Wash another couple of times with clean water to make sure the floor is free from any contaminants from the manufacturing process. Then you can apply two coats of Prolong floor polish at right-angles to each other. The floor can then be cleaned on a regular basis with our Prolong floor maintainer. All of the above products are available in our Complete Floor Care Kit.
