Carpet care instructions
CoTradeCo and NOTRAX want to help you get the longest life and best possible use from your floor mats.
Proper care and cleaning helps maintain appearance and usefulness over the longest possible
time; and protects your investment and your facility.
When daily care (vacuuming, etc.) fails to restore color of carpeted surface due to excessive embedded soil, shampooing is recommended. Use any neutral synthetic detergent with tepid water (1/2 cup per gallon of water). Hand brush method will yield good results. Use sponge or cloth to remove studs.
If carpet is matted with excessive soil, use a detergent with brushing as described and follow by rinsing with cool water until soil is removed. Remove excess water with floor squeegee and place in an inclined position to drain dry. If on-site maintenance is not available, manufacturer recommends mat be sent to reputable rug cleaner and be professionally shampooed for a nominal cost. If professional shampooing is required, use only flat washing equipment, and temperature not exceeding 120 degree F. Manufacturer cannot be responsible for damage resulting from cleaning in rotary laundering equipment.
Spot Removal Stains
When a spill occurs, absorb as much liquid as possible with any clean absorbent material. On oil or grease based stains, use dry cleaning fluid in small amounts and blot until stain is removed.
Vacuum or Broom Daily
This is important especially in heavy traffic areas. Best results are obtained when carpet surface is dry.
Shedding or Fuzzing
A shedding condition is not a carpet defect, but rather common to all new fabrics. This will disappear after a few vacuumings.
Storage & Handling
Roll carpet in compact roll with pile facing out. Lay flat. Do not crush. Store in a moderate temperature and dry area.
CAUTION: If the borders on matting become broken or curled, the matting should be removed from service until tripping hazard can be corrected.
