Ease of floor maintenance and upkeep is one of the most important factors when choosing a sports floor. Luckily, Abacus has several maintenance options.
Simple Floor Maintenance Information To Keep Your Facility Looking Like New
Having proper floor maintenance can be very tedious and expensive with some sports surfaces. Our synthetic products have very simple and easy floor maintenance that is inexpensive to facilitate. This ease of floor maintenance is what makes this surface such a feasible option when selecting your next sport floor. The Sports Surfacing Industry relies on a number of global performance standards for quantifying sports floor performance.
Standards include those of the International Basketball Federation (FIBA), German Institute for Standardization (DIN), European Standard (EN), and the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM). While the EN standard has become the accepted norm for synthetic sports flooring systems, the Maple Flooring Manufacturers Association saw the need to introduce the Performance and Uniformity Rating (PUR) Standard to better address the evaluation of wooden sports floors.
Robbins’ partner company, Egis Floorlife, offers a warranty program that extends the life of a sports floor up to 40 years.

What should I do on a daily basis to keep my floor clean?
Dust Mopping: This should be done at least once or twice a day when the floor is in use to remove dirt that gets tracked onto the floor can grind away at the finish. When dust mopping, never use a freshly treated dust mop. This can leave the floor streaked, unattractive, and possibly slippery.
What should I do on a weekly basis to keep my floor clean?
Damp Mopping: This should be done on a weekly basis in order to keep your floor looking like new and extend the life of the finish. After placing wet floor signs, mix Hillyard Clean Scrub at a rate of one ounce per gallon of water in a mop bucket for damp mopping. Using a clean rayon mop, damp mop entire floor and allow to dry. If an automatic scrubber is available, take advantage of this labor saver. Mix Hillyard Clean Scrub at one ounce per gallon of water in the solution tank. (Use red pads under the auto scrubber to scrub entire floor).
Can I restore the floor?
The Hillyard Salvation Stripper should be done once or twice a year (depending upon usage of your floor) – this is a very aggressive cleaner used to strip seal coats. Use to clean very dirty floors and remove black shoe marks off floor. Protect floor against punctures by using furniture rests. Prevent heavy, sharp objects from being dropped or being pressed into surface.
