The maintenance and cleaning of the VIA plates is easy. You take the VIA lubricating soap or plate soap. Cleaning with a greasing soap not only cleans the floor, it also builds up the beautiful and protective patina. Greater dirt can be removed from the VIA cement tiles, for example with a "Glitzi" foam and scratch powder or also with the so-called "cleaning stone". What should urgently be avoided are acidic cleaning agents, such as vinegar cleaning or citric acid.
Every cleaning process consists of cleaning and care. Similar to other limestone coatings, acids dry up the surface. Therefore, it is important to make sure that the cleaning effect is not achieved by acidic cleaning agents, but by alkaline, slightly greasing agents.
The VIA lubricating soap gives your floor the daily care it needs.
Traditionally, terrace floors have been cleaned with a lubricating soap – lubrication soap contributes to soil care by means of a natural re-lubrication.
To eliminate gross contamination, scratch powder can also be used.
Every protection and every impregnation is limited. It is best to eliminate dirt immediately. If a stain has actually arisen due to prolonged action of e.g. lemon juice, red wine, tomatoes, etc., polishing with a diamond pad may help to hide the stain.
With diamond polishing pads, the surface can be polished and obtained the desired gloss. Even soils that have been behind for a century can be reworked with it. Diamond polishing pads are floor cleaning discs fitted with countless, microscopically small diamonds that mechanically clean and polish the floor – exclusively with water.
For polishing even older floors, you can find in the VIA Online Shop precisely matched sets of polishing pads, which are equipped with different grains:
Please note the correct mounting of the pads on the machine! The selected page must point upwards.
The surface must be humidified; when applied dry, the pads do not have a polishing effect.
You can find VIA polishing pads at accessories in the online shop.
