Axis does not have to be removed for cleaning as dirt cannot
Daily Maintenance: Daily vacuum thoroughly with a
powerful vacuum cleaner, preferably with power driven brushes, working
lengthwise along the infills. This agitates the pile to loosen the dirt.
Periodic Maintenance: A routine visual inspection will
identify when Axis is becoming full of dirt.
It can then be cleaned with a water spray extraction method. Axis can be
scrubbed with a machine or by hand along the direction of the infills only. In
cases of staining, household solvents may be used, but must only be applied to
a rag and then rubbed onto the mat. Do
not pour solvents directly onto the mat as a breakdown of the infill adhesive
may result. Only use chemicals suitable for the cleaning of carpets, following
the manufacturer's instructions.
A maintenance instruction sheet is available.
Axis has a 20 year warranty on wear and
performance, stairs excepted, conditional on the product being installed and
maintained according to the manufacturers recommendations.
