CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
HARDWOOD SQUASH FLOORS
This instruction describes how to conduct cleaning and maintenance of Junckers un-finished and pre-finished Sylva Squash floors installed in squash courts.
All Junckers Sylva Squash floorboards are from factory sanded to a rough finish for grip purposes.
Further more the pre-finished Sylva Squash floorboards are treated with one coat of a hard-wearing factory applied polyurethane lacquer for easy cleaning purposes.
DAILY / WEEKLY CLEANING
Daily vacuum and/or sweep the floor to remove surface dust and grit. An anti static sweeper, e.g. a Vee mop is effective means of dust removal.
Any stubborn black scuff marks can be removed by using white spirit.
If there is a persistent problem with dust, a very slightly damp mop will remove the majority of the dust from the floor. Use only clean water, no cleaning agent.
Use a mild solution of Junckers Sylva Cleaner to clean dirty floors. Use e.g. a hand-held trigger sprayer and a rotary polishing machine mounted with a soft cleaning pad.
To retain the slip resistance of the floor, degrease by spray buffing (mentioned above) with a solution of Junckers Sylva Neutralizer.
LONG TERM MAINTENANCE
When the finish in a squash court wears smooth and becomes slippery, it must be re-surfaced by following directions:
Sand along the length of the floorboards. Final sanding must be conducted with sandpaper grit 40. Then apply line markings.
Sand along the length of the floorboards. Final sanding must be conducted with sandpaper grit 60. The floor can then be treated with one coat of Junckers HP Sport lacquer plus linemarking paint.
Line markings can be carried out using Junckers HP Sportsline paint. To avoid bleeding of the paint under the tape, it’s recommended to seal the tape edges with clear lacquer before paint is applied.
