Clean, protect and care for
Every material needs a specific treatment that protects and enhances surfaces phase-after-phase. From pre-treatment to maintenance, the Fila System will keep your surfaces looking like new.
The four treatment stages:
Post Installation Cleaning
After floor renovations or the purchase of a new home, it is essential to properly wash the surfaces to remove any cement, concrete and glue residue leftover from installation. Unfortunately, post installation cleaning is often ignored or carried out using products not specifically designed for this purpose. Over time, this can lead to staining and surface discoloration.
Protecting surfaces against stains and humidity is imperative for maintaining their technical properties and aesthetic appearance. It is important to choose the right product based on material, location (inside or outside), type of protection (water repellent or stain proofing) and desired look (natural or color-enhancing).
Interior floors may require a finishing treatment to protect them against surface wear caused by frequent foot traffic or moving chairs and furniture. This protective coat also nourishes the material and gives it the desired aesthetic appearance.
Ordinary maintenance is nothing more than everyday cleaning. It removes dirt and fingerprints and reinforces the protective layer. Fila cleaners are created with simple, everyday cleaning in mind! Every once in a while, extraordinary maintenance is required, for instance: to remove stains or old layers of wax and to restore the polished finish of a dull surface… FILA offers a vast range of cleaners and stain removers for the maintenance of floors and tiled surfaces.
The Expert's Advice:
Pre-treatment is not mandatory, but certainly recommended when grouting highly absorbent materials such as terracotta and very porous stone. Pre-treating the material has the following advantages:
• Protects surfaces from grout residue;
• Makes grouting easier;
• Makes post installation cleaning easier;
• Speeds up drying after initial cleaning and accelerates the subsequent treatment phases.
