Accumulated dirt and debris can insulate your ESD floor from its conductive components and cause your floor to look unattractive and worn. Simple routine maintenance, using StaticWorx ScrubWorx cleaner and Formula 20.20 will keep your ESD floor at optimal electrical performance while maintaining a clean, beautiful, hospital-like shine.

To add luster and restore an old, soiled vinyl floor to like-new condition, simply follow the procedure shown in our post-installation video. This restoration procedure uses StaticWorx EcoScrub degreaser and Formula 20.20.

AmeriWorx ESD tile provides excellent electrical protection with an attractive appearance that enhances any working or manufacturing environment.

As with any other floor, ongoing maintenance is required to maintain the visual appearance and clean, hospital-like shine of AmeriWorx vinyl tile. Routine cleaning prevents the buildup of contaminants and debris, which can affect the floor’s electrical performance. While there may be other ways to keep your AmeriWorx ESD floor looking clean, StaticWorx recommends only the use of StaticWorx ScrubWorx and StaticWorx Formula 20.20. Unapproved methods and procedures may cause suboptimal electrical performance and/or poor visual appearance. Frequency of cleaning can be daily, weekly, monthly or quarterly, depending on visual requirements, traffic frequency and other site-specific environmental conditions. Never at any time buff AmeriWorx ESD vinyl tile in excess of 375 RPM. Floors become slippery when wet and care must be taken to prevent accidental slipping or falls. Appropriate barriers to wet areas and warning/caution placards should always be used.

First, sweep or dust mop the floor to remove any large debris. Never use oil-treated dust mops. Dilute StaticWorx ScrubWorx one part cleaner to 64 parts water, two ounces per gallon, with cool, clean water. Damp mop or auto-scrub using a generic red pad. Rinse as necessary, then allow to dry. To achieve a deep, rich luster, simply clean the floor using StaticWorx ScrubWorx. After the floor is completely dry and free of residue and other contaminants, mist a small area with StaticWorx Formula 20.20, with the sprayer on a fine-mist setting. Buff the floor with a generic red or natural hair pad using a slow, even sweeping motion until you obtain the desired appearance. If you follow these recommended procedures, your AmeriWorx ESD tile will look beautiful and last a lifetime.
