There are a few different resilient floor cleaners on the market, including Congoleum Bright ‘N Easy No-Rinse Cleaner and Armstrong Once ‘N Done Resilient and Tile Floor Cleaner. Sweeping or vacuuming regularly will help remove dirt and grit that can abrade, dull and scratch your Durastone floor.
When spills or stains occur avoid wiping and spreading the spill, instead blot the area immediately with a paper towel. Rinse the area with soap and water several times and dry the area with a soft cloth. If the area remains stained there are steps that can be taken to remove it but the removal process depends upon what actually caused the stain. Oil based stains will darken the stone and should be removed with a soft, liquid bleach cleaner. Organic stains that occur as a result of items such as coffee, tea, urine or food may cause a pinkish brown stain but should come off fairly easily once the source of the stain on Durastone flooring is removed.
If the stain persists try using a hydrogen peroxide solution with a few drops of ammonia. Iron or rust stains will appear orange or brown in color and must be removed with a poultice. A poultice should be made from part liquid cleaner and part talc. The mixture will create a thick paste that should be spread over the stain, covered with plastic and left to sit for 24 to 48 hours. Ink should be removed with bleach if the stone is lighter but acetone should be used on darker stone. Etches and scratches will need to be refinished and polished by a professional.
