Using floor tape is a great way to keep a facility safe, organized, and efficient. Just like any type of flooring, floor tape can get quite dirty over time. When floor tape gets dirty, it can become harder to see, which defeats the purpose of using it at all. This is why so many people ask questions about how to clean floor marking tape properly so it looks great and lasts a long time. Here are some of the most popular questions and answers on this topic.
Q: What is the Best Way to Clean Floor Tape?
A: If you’re looking to clean floor tape specifically, the ideal option is to use SafetyTac Floor and Tape Cleaner. This cleaner is designed specifically to be safe for use on virtually any type of floor tape that is on the market today. In addition, it is able to clean the surrounding floors without any trouble at all.
Q: Can I Clean Floor Tape with the Same Cleaner as the Rest of the Floor?
A: Yes! High quality floor tape is durable and can be cleaned by all normal and industrial floor cleaning products. Just go over the floor tape like you do with the rest of the floor to remove dirt, dust, scuff marks, and any other markings.
Q: Can I Clean Floor Tape with a Motorized Floor Cleaner?
A: Absolutely. SafetyTac (and other manufacturers of high quality industrial floor marking tape) know that many facilities use large motorized floor cleaners to keep their facility clean. Once the tape is properly installed, it can withstand this type of cleaning without any trouble at all. Simply have the floor cleaner go over the tape just like any other part of the floor. It is important to note that discount quality floor tape may not be able to stand up to this type of cleaning, so always make sure you’re using high quality floor tape in your facility.
Q: How Do I Remove Stubborn Stains on the Floor Tape?
A: If you can’t remove a stain or marking on the floor tape using normal floor cleaning methods, the best option is to get a small bucket with a solution of SafetyTac Floor and Tape Cleaner along with a sponge or rag. Soak the sponge or rag in the cleaner and manually scrub the stain, using plenty of force. If it still doesn’t work, you can drip some of the cleaner on the stain and let it sit for a few minutes before trying again. Using this method, most stains will come right out of the floor tape.
Q: Can Floor Tape be Cleaned with Disinfectant Cleaners?
A: Yes. Good quality floor tape can be cleaned with disinfectant cleaners. In fact, many medical facilities today use floor marking tape to segment different areas, and they use powerful disinfectant cleaners on a daily basis. Floor marking tape will have no trouble standing up to this type of cleaning.
Q: How Often Should Floor Marking Tape be Cleaned?
A: Floor marking tape should generally be cleaned just as often as you plan on cleaning the floor surrounding it. Some facilities clean their floors daily, others only need to do a cleaning a couple times per month.
