  • Level
  • Protective gloves and eyewear

Preparation

1- Surface Inspection:

  • Ensure the surface is clean, dry, and level. Sweep or vacuum to remove debris.
  • Check for any cracks or uneven areas and repair them before starting the installation.

2- Layout Planning:

  • Measure the area to determine the number of tiles needed.

Installation Steps:

1- Starting Point:

  • Begin at one corner of the garage, preferably the corner farthest from the entrance.

2- Tile Placement:

  • Place the first tile with the male edge (with pegs) facing outwards.
  • Align the second tile next to the first tile, ensuring the female edge (with loops) matches the male edge of the first tile.

3- Connecting Tiles:

Press down on the corners and edges to snap the tiles together securely.

Use a rubber mallet to tap gently on the tiles, ensuring a tight fit without damaging them.

4- Continue Installation:

  • Repeat the process, working your way across the room in rows.
  • Ensure tiles are aligned and properly connected as you go.

5- Cutting Tiles:

  • Measure and mark tiles for cutting at edges and corners.
  • Use a utility knife or tile cutter to cut tiles to the required size.
  • Place the cut tiles in position and connect them to the adjacent tiles.

6- Finishing Touches:

  • Inspect the installed tiles for any gaps or misalignment.
  • Use the rubber mallet to adjust tiles as needed.
  • Ensure all tiles are securely snapped together.

Maintenance Tips:

  • Cleaning: Sweep or vacuum regularly to remove dirt and debris. For deeper cleaning, use a mild detergent and water.
  • Inspection: Periodically check for any loose tiles and snap them back into place if necessary.

DURANTE Garage Tiles Care and Maintenance Guide

Thank you for choosing DURANTE Garage Tiles! To keep your tiles looking their best and ensure longevity, please follow this comprehensive care and maintenance guide.

General Maintenance:

1- Regular Cleaning:

  • Sweeping: Use a broom or a dust mop to remove loose dirt and debris regularly.
  • Vacuuming: For a deeper clean, use a vacuum with a hard floor setting to avoid scratching the tiles.

2- Washing:

  • Mild Detergent: Mix a mild detergent with warm water and use a soft mop or cloth to clean the tiles.
  • Rinse Thoroughly: Ensure all detergent residue is rinsed off with clean water to prevent slipping and ensure a clean surface.
  • Drying: Allow tiles to air dry or use a clean, dry cloth to wipe them down.

Stain Removal:

1- Common Spills:

  • Water and Mild Spills: Wipe up spills promptly with a damp cloth.
  • Oil and Grease: Use a degreaser suitable for polypropylene surfaces. Apply the degreaser, let it sit for a few minutes, then wipe clean with a damp cloth.

2- Stubborn Stains:

  • Stain Remover: Use a commercial stain remover safe for polypropylene. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Scrubbing: Use a soft-bristled brush for gentle scrubbing. Avoid using abrasive pads that may scratch the tiles.

Special Considerations:

1- Chemical Exposure:

  • Avoid Harsh Chemicals: Do not use solvents, bleach, or acidic cleaners on the tiles as they can cause damage.
  • Safe Cleaners: Opt for pH-neutral cleaners designed for polypropylene surfaces.

2- Heat and Fire Safety:

  • Avoid Direct Heat: Do not place hot objects directly on the tiles to prevent melting or warping.
  • Fire Safety: Keep tiles away from open flames or heat sources exceeding 120°C (248°F).

Preventative Measures:

1- Furniture and Heavy Objects:

  • Protective Pads: Use furniture pads under heavy objects to prevent indentations and scratches.
  • Avoid Dragging: Lift and place objects instead of dragging them across the tiles.

2- Environmental Factors:

  • UV Protection: DURANTE tiles are UV resistant, but prolonged exposure to direct sunlight may cause slight discoloration over time. Consider using shades or blinds in areas with intense sunlight.
  • Temperature Fluctuations: DURANTE tiles are designed to withstand temperature variations but avoid extreme conditions where possible.

Routine Inspection:

1- Check for Loose Tiles:

  • Regular Inspection: Periodically check for any loose tiles and snap them back into place if necessary.
  • Edge and Corner Tiles: Pay special attention to edge and corner tiles as they are more prone to loosening.

2- Tile Replacement:

  • Damaged Tiles: Replace any damaged tiles promptly to maintain the integrity of the flooring.
  • Matching Tiles: Keep a few extra tiles from the original installation batch for seamless replacements.

Additional Tips:

  • Matting: Use entrance mats to reduce dirt and moisture tracked onto the tiles.
  • Soft Wheels: Use carts and equipment with soft wheels to prevent surface damage.
  • Frequent Movement: For areas with frequent movement, ensure tiles are securely locked in place to prevent shifting.
