How to clean a floor with FUZE multi purpose floor cleaner

To ensure best results without damage to your floor and minimum impact on the environment select a floor cleaner that is designed for the job. FUZE Multi Purpose Floor Cleaner has been designed specifically for use on all hard floorings including wood, tiles, laminate, lino etc.

Prepare the floor for cleaning

The first step of cleaning a floor is to remove all the loose dirt and dust by sweeping. Using an indoor soft sweeping brush work your way across the floor gathering the dirt from corners, edges and under appliances as you go. A quick daily bush is advisable to avoid grit accumulating and scratching the surface of the floor. A thorough sweeping  is advisable before mopping. Use a hand brush and dustpan to lift the dirt and dispose of it in the bin.

Dilute the Floor Cleaner

Add 2 capfuls of product to every 5 litres (1 gallon) of water that you use. A typical household bucket will hold 10-12 litres when very full. Just under half a bucket is about 5 litres and will be more than sufficient to clean an average sized floor. If you are using a square mop bucket then 5 litres is typically about 8-10 cm depth of water. Use warm fresh water. Warm water will help to loosed the dirt and will help your floor dry quicker.

FUZE multi purpose floor cleaner is a concentrated product and should not be used without diluting.

Cleaning The Floor

Clean the floor by applying the warm diluted cleaner with a mop or a soft cloth. Stubborn stains may require additional rubbing or even scrubbing. It is not generally advisable to use anything abrasive such as cream cleaner or wire wool as it may scratch the surface of the floor. Be cautions not to over wet laminate flooring that is not water resistant or waterproof.

Once any mud or stains are removed and loosened and the floor is looking cleaner it is time to remove the dirty water and dry the floor. To do this wring out the mop or cloth and wipe up the excess cleaning solution from the floor. With good ventilation the floor should naturally dry in 10 minutes. Try to exclude foot traffic from the floor while it is drying. You can dry mop the floor to speed up the drying process. Dry mopping can also help to restore shine to high gloss flooring
