Step 1:
Spot Cleaning – Pet Urine or Solid Waste 
Remove solid waste and excess moisture with a lint-free or disposable cloth. Clean affected area using a damp sponge mop with gentle disinfectant solution.

Do not use strong chemical cleaners such as ammonia, bleach, solvents or petroleum based products.

Step 2:

Once you’ve vacuumed or brushed up any loose debris, mop the rubber surface. Use a soft mop (sponge not cotton) with water and a mild, PH neutral detergent.

Beware of chemical products. Avoid chemical products that are highly acidic or alkaline as they degrade the surface of the rubber. Do not use strong chemical cleaners such as ammonia, bleach, solvents or petroleum based products. 

Additional Tip:

If your rubber floor is not vulcanized, it should be coated with a sealer.

To do this, pour sealer into paint tray. Use a paint pad with a broom handle or a lint-free short-napped roller to “paint or coat” the sealer onto the floor. Follow the remainder of directions on the sealer product and allow to dry.
