Problem Solving / Bullet Proof Vinyl Cleaning Instructions

FIRST, WE RECOMMEND PLACING THE EQUIPMENT IN RELATIVELY DRY AREA. THE VINYL WILL WORK FINE IN AN OUTSIDE ENVIRONMENT THAT GETS PLENTY OF AIR AND SUNSHINE. FACILITIES RIGHT ON THE OCEAN, NEAR A SWIMMING POOL, OR SHADED IN HIGH HUMIDITY AREAS NEED TO MAKE EXTRA EFFORTS TO IMPROVE THE VENTILATION AND WIPE THE VINYL OFF MORE FREQUENTLY.*

SECOND, WE RECOMMEND THAT ALL LIFTERS WEAR SHIRTS TO HELP REDUCE THE AMOUNT OF SWEAT TRANSFERRED TO THE VINYL AND TO IMPROVE THE SANITATION OF THE FACILITY. WE REALIZE THIS IS NOT ALWAYS FOLLOWED IN CORRECTIONAL RECREATION FACILITIES.

MOST PEOPLE USE CLOROX LIQUID BLEACH AS A DISINFECTANT. MIX ONE PART CLOROX LIQUID BLEACH WITH 10 PARTS OF WATER, MIX WELL, PUT IT IN A HAND SPRAY BOTTLE, SHAKE WELL, SPRAY IT ON THE VINYL SURFACE, AND WIPE IT OFF.

FOR TOUGHER CLEANING JOBS USE A REGULAR BAR OF BATH SOAP AND A BUCKET OF LUKEWARM WATER. USE THE NEUTRAL SOAP SUDS TO CLEAN THE FABRIC, THEN USE CLEAN LUKEWARM WATER TO RINSE IT OFF, WIPE IT DOWN, AND ALLOW IT TO DRY.

IN MOIST ENVIRONMENTS WE SUGGEST DOING THE 10:1 CLOROX WIPE DOWN AT NOON AND AGAIN AT THE END OF THE DAY. THE SOAP SUDS CLEANING IS DONE ON AN AS NEEDED BASIS.

DO NOT USE HARSH CLEANSERS, SOLVENTS, OR DETERGENTS.

OUR VINYL, GIVEN THE PROPER CARE DESCRIBED ABOVE WILL BRING EXTENDED LIFE TO YOUR APPLICATIONS. IF WE CAN BE OF FURTHER ASSISTANCE OR IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS GIVE US A CALL AT (800) 443-6543.
