Cleaning and care of MMF floor coverings – commercial sector
Normally, modular multilayer flooring (MMF) feature highest quality and durable surfaces which ensure the long life of such type of flooring – professional cleaning and care corresponding to use provided.
As a general rule, floating installation and especially MMF flooring types with HDF core require low-moisture cleaning methods.
Which flooring has been laid? While natural, artificial stone and textile flooring mostly are clearly identifiable as such, material-related differentiation and allocation with regard to natural wood, parquet, laminate and elastic flooring is getting pretty harder. – Especially so if flooring has already been fitted and the individuals commissioned with cleaning and care do not have available supplementing information on the flooring. The European MMFA Association wants to provide necessary educational work for multilayer, modular flooring.
