To Disinfect

Magnattach Dance Floor

Alcohol and bleach are acceptable chemical disinfectants to use on the surface, if applied correctly. As with any other disinfectants, soiled surfaces need to be cleaned with water and detergent first. Then, apply the bleach or alcohol solution to disinfect.

When using bleach:

  • Bleach can be harmful to the user and cause long-term damage to surfaces if not used carefully
  • Prolonged exposure of the laminate surface will cause discoloration
  • Follow the manufacturer’s guidelines and safety precautions

Cleaners with the following active ingredients in various mix rations and solutions pose a threat to any laminate surface and can cause irreparable damage:

  • Peroxide(s)
  • Strong acids (phosphoric acid is often used, very low pH values)
  • Hydrochloric acid
  • Sulfuric acid
  • Hydrofluoric acid
  • Phosphoric acid
  • Sodium hydroxide

As in the case of all cleaners, exposure time is the key. Often surface damage is due to poor removal of the cleaning agent (spills, drops, etc. that are not removed). Degradation and/or discoloration can be caused by prolonged exposure to the surface with, chemical dilutions, disinfectants, and sanitizers. It is recommended to test any cleaner on a small area of the surface first.

If you are unsure whether a cleaner, detergent, sanitizer, or chemical can be used on the dance floor surface, contact the Wilsonart Technical Services Team at 1.800-433-3222.
