Protect Your Investment: Tips for Cleaning Your Vinyl Dance FloorMay 22, 2023
Walking on a dirty dance floor can cause harm to its surface quickly. Regular cleaning of your vinyl dance floor is essential to keep it in top condition. Here are some guidelines to follow when maintaining your vinyl dance floor:
- Vacuum, sweep, or dry mop the floor, including any throw rugs, mats, or small carpets.
- Keep the surface of the floor dry.
- Clean up any spills immediately to prevent damage.
- Clean the floors with a cloth broom after each tap dance class.
- Use a pH-neutral cleaner, we recommend using “Squeaky Clean” by Basic Coatings.
- Avoid using cleansers that contain ammonia or abrasives, as they can harm the vinyl dance floor.
- Do not use an automatic floor scrubber.
- For large vinyl dance floors, you may use an automatic scrubber/dryer with a red or blue pad at a low RPM, not exceeding 175 revolutions per minute.
Note: Please take extra care if you hold tap dance classes in your studio as tap shoes are often the main cause of damage to the vinyl dance floor. To prevent this, always check your tap shoes for loose screws before stepping on the floor.
To clean scuff marks, use a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser with water and then dry the floor with a paper towel or cloth. For persistent scuffs, use Scuff Eraser by Crep. Clean the surface thoroughly and then rinse off all cleaner residue with water and a sponge or towel.
We recommend implementing a check your shoe policy in your studio. This policy requires all students to check their shoes for loose screws and sharp toe plates before entering the studio. A small file and screwdriver should be provided and students should be taught how to check their shoes. If students are too young, the teacher should be responsible for checking their shoes. Loose screws and sharp toe plates can cause cosmetic damage to the floor, which can impact its appearance permanently.
By taking these precautions, you can keep your vinyl dance floor in top condition and protect your investment for years to come.
