Initial Residential Maintenance
After the floor has been installed and the adhesive has dried (48 hours), initial maintenance MUST BE performed on your Alternatives floor. If these instructions are not followed, permanent staining may occur.
Sweep or vacuum the floor regularly to remove loose dirt.
If needed, after installation use lighter fluid applied with a clean cloth to remove scuff marks and adhesive residue. Keep traffic off treated area for 30 minutes.
Wash your floor with Congoleum Bright `N Easy No-Rinse Cleaner or other suitable resilient floor cleaner. Be sure it is thoroughly dry before applying polish.
Apply a minimum of two coats of Congoleum Bright `N Easy Floor Polish to seal and protect your floor.
Caution: Lighter fluid is a flammable solvent. Carefully read and follow cautionary information on label.

Periodically, it will be necessary to remove polish buildup. Use Congoleum Bright `N Easy Polish Remover, following label instructions. Rinse well and allow to dry before re-applying polish.
Each time the polish is stripped, apply a minimum of two coats of Congoleum Bright `N Easy Floor Polish to reseal and protect the floor.
