MAINTENANCE GUIDE

General Maintenance The amount of daily usage will determine how often cleaning is required. Sweep as necessary with a soft broom. Care must be taken if you use a vacuum cleaner. Do not use vacuum cleaners with “beater bars”. Wipe over with a clean damp mop or cloth, which should be rinsed frequently in clean water. Remember that all floors can be slippery when wet. When necessary, wash with a solution of clean water and mild detergent or domestic floor cleaning emulsion*. Rinse thoroughly and soak up residual water. For additional lustre, buff with a dry cloth. Spots, marks and spillages should be wiped up as soon as possible. Cushioned floors with an additional protective coating such as Beauflor Premium Protect, Multi Protect and Ultra-grip, do not normally require polish. Other floors (Bartoli/Lioni) will require polishing to protect the floor’s surface from staining agents and to give a surface shine. For such floors, apply a liquid emulsion floor polish** immediately after installation and thereafter at 6 – 12 month intervals as required. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions when using a floor polish or cleaner. *Do not use – wire or nylon wool scouring pads, furniture polish, spirit based polish, powder or liquid abrasive cleaners, bleach or strong detergents ** Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions – check that the cleaner/polish is suitable for use with cushioned vinyl floor coverings. Protecting Your Floor From Physical Damage Avoid the following: ⊗ Rubber backing on doormats may result in yellow discoloration of the floor immediately beneath. Choose a natural fiber mat. ⊗ Rubber feet on furniture may cause staining. Remove them altogether or place coasters or felt pads between them and the floor. ⊗ Spirit-based products such as shoe polish, solvents, hair dye and permanent marker pens. Wipe up spots and marks as quickly as possible. Also applies to turmeric, mustard and strongly colored foodstuffs. ⊗ Corrosive substances such as acid and alkaline solutions can damage the surface of the floor. Cl
Beauflor

ean up any spills quickly and carefully avoiding direct contact with the substance. Wear protective clothing such as gloves when doing so. ⊗ Bitumen/tar from freshly resurfaced or melted roads and pathways. Some inexpensive rubber shoe and slipper soles can also cause stains. The above list is indicative of materials likely to cause damage but is not considered restrictive.

Vinyl floors are one of the most durable and affordable flooring solutions available on the market these days.

High level of durability, very warm unlike ceramics ,None slip ideal for bathrooms ,easy to install ,low maintenance and versatility make the vinyl flooring a very popular flooring choice for commercial and residential applications. There are two types of vinyl sheet flooring: homogeneous and heterogeneous flooring.

Having a well-manicured lush lawn in your compound enhances your home’s appearance. It makes your property pleasing to the eye, and turns your compound into a comfortable place to play, unwind and relax.

However, growing grass can be a taxing undertaking as it requires a lot of dedication in terms of time and financial investment.

Isaack Ngunjiri, a landscape artist at Floor Décor Kenya Limited, roots for artificial grass, which, he argues, looks better and requires less effort in terms of maintenance.

“If you’re interested in creating a home with a great curb appeal while at the same time conserving water and saving money, then synthetic lawns are exactly what you require,” says the Nakuru-based landscaper. His company, which specialises in selling synthetic grass, has branches in Nakuru, Eldoret, Kisumu and Nairobi.

He explains that the artificial grass comes in seven shades of green and is so natural-looking, that it is almost impossible to tell it apart from real grass.

Ngunjiri  has been selling artificial grass since 2011. Most of his clients are people residing in urban areas.

“We mostly install the lawn in compounds that had been initially paved with concrete or cabro blocks,” says the landscaper. He nevertheless points out that he has had to install artificial grass on bare land for homeowners who had grown weary of tending to a natural lawn. “Once installed, artificial lawns require little maintenance as opposed to natural grass,” he adds.

To begin with, synthetic grass does not require any watering. Many home-owners burdened by increased water bills usually neglect their lawns, and as a result, they dry up and become variegated and unsightly.

Currently, many parts of the country are facing acute water shortage due to the prolonged drought. This, Mr Ngunjiri suggests, should motivate homeowners to replace their lawns with artificial ones.  “With synthetic, the grass is actually green all year long,” he says and points out, “During rainy season, you don’t need to worry about employing a gardener to do the mowing as the synthetic grass  doesn’t require pulling out weeds and trimming unruly edges every fortnight or so.”

VERSATILE GRASS

“Though our lawns come with a 10-year guarantee, they are actually capable of retaining their strength and luster for over 50 years. Users don’t need to worry about the lawn becoming worn out or trodden as it is durable and can withstand children playing, pet scratches and heavy traffic such as garden parties, barbecues, and other social functions,” Mr Ngunjiri affirms.

A major concern among buyers is that the plastic lawn might retain water and easily become flooded especially after heavy rains. However, Ngunjiri says the fears are unfounded, stating that the artificial grass is permeable. He  singles out rows of holes underneath the grass that allows water to flow through, hence eliminating the problem of water-logging. “When it comes to artificial grass, you don’t need to worry about puddles of water collecting and then leaving patches of mud around your compound,” he notes. The grass, which can be cleaned by vacuuming or hosing, comes with soft-foam padding underneath to cushion children from injuries when they fall on the ground during play.

Ngunjiri says that ‘imitation grass is “actually greener than natural grass”. He adds that it eliminates the use of pesticides, weed killers and other chemicals that are often employed to grow and protect lawns but are harmful to the environment.

Artificial grass can be used to compliment other forms of paving outdoors. “You can separate quadrants of concrete by passing strips of grass between them to create picturesque riffs. It is especially scenic on rooftops and balconies as it makes them colourful and livable. Around the swimming pool, the grass brings out an ingenious look that makes the pool seem like a natural occurring pond,” he explains.

Who says you can’t have grass inside your house? Eunice Wanjiku, a Nairobi-based interior designer poses. She says that synthetic grass brings with it a versatility that has seen it replace traditional carpeting indoors on floors and stairs.

Business premises and homes are increasingly fitting synthetic grass on their walls and ceilings to turn them into focal points for attraction.

Interior designers, she says, love toying around with plastic grass because of its natural, calming and relaxing look.

“Installing artificial grass in children’s bedrooms,” the interior designer says, “creates fun spaces that enable children to get a feel of playing outdoors if they cannot go outside to play.”

Do you work in a high-pressure and stressful environment? Wanjiku is of the opinion that installing artificial grass may be beneficial to your staff. “Green colour is said to have the ability to improve working energy and can help to provide a stress-free area for employees,” she adds.

Behold the cure for cold floors is here

Is your floor too cold, stained, slippery, squeaky, and hard on the feet? Are you wondering what to do with it? Well, wonder no more. Cushion vinyl, the newest technology in flooring, which resembles –and is rolled easily on the floor like— a carpet, comes with a new lease of life for your floor.

The flooring product is not just a solution to all floor headaches that bedevils residents but an eco-friendly solution as well since its bottom layer is made of 95 per cent recycled fiber. Cushion vinyl has five layers unlike a carpet that has one.

“The bottom layer, recycled fiber backing, easily fills into the gaps between tiles and this eliminates the need for grouting,” Mr Amos Kibaru, the CEO of Floor Décor Kenya, told DN2.
The compact layer, he continues, which comes above the fiber layer helps to absorb pressure and prevents substrate deformations. Therefore, the floor underneath, whether wood or ceramic tiles, remains intact and undamaged in case the resident decides to remove the cushion vinyl floor.

On top of the compact layer is the glass fibre mesh layer that prevents excessive expansion and tears. Glass fibre layer precedes the design layer which combines hyper-realistic designs, textures and colours for the cushion vinyl. For instance, the design layer can come in wood, ceramic or stone look. All these designs come in a wide variety of colours to choose from. For a house where most accessories are white, the resident could choose, say, a brown cushion vinyl to complement the accessories, and depending on the wallpapers in the house he or she can choose a stone or wood design vinyl.

Unlike foam backing that encourages penetration of water over time and consequent growth of mildew, cushion vinyl whose backing is textile, is waterproof and does not form mildew on the bottom surface.

Terming cushion vinyl as an all-round floor type, Mr Kibaru says it is ideal for residential areas, offices, hospitals, libraries, hotels and clubs. Singling out hotels and clubs since the interior decoration of these two places needs to constantly change for them to remain attractive and inviting to patrons, he says, “It is expensive to change tiles every now and then in such a place where decoration is quite dynamic. Cushion vinyl would be more ideal since it is cheap, easy to install and comes in a wide variety of designs and colours.”

However, when purchasing cushion vinyl, Mr Kibaru advises individuals to inform the seller where they intend to install the vinyl floor. This is because there are two types of vinyl materials; residential and office vinyl. “The difference is their thickness, where residential vinyl is 0.20mm thick. It is manufactured ideally for low traffic areas. The office vinyl is double the residential in thickness and a bit heavy. It is 0.40mm in thickness,” says Mr Kibaru.

Besides being warm and soft on the foot due to the fibre material used to manufacture it, its top layer, called the wear layer, which is made from polyurethane material, provides resistance to wear and tear that in most cases is occasioned by dragging chairs on the floor or piercing the floor with sharp heals. It also makes it easy to maintain the floor. “You can easily wipe out stains with a wet piece of cloth. The top layer prevents scuffing which is common in wooden tiles,” says Mr Kibaru, adding that walking with sharp heals on it will not leave blemishes behind.

To put it simply, cushion vinyl behaves like a high-density foam mattress that caves in when sat on and regains its shape ones the pressure is off. It comes with a five year warranty.
Cushion vinyl is fire resistance, which means if a resident accidentally drops a red-hot piece of charcoal; the wear layer will not burn immediately to buy some time to put it off. Polyurethane, which manufactures the top layer, is a polymer composed of organic units joined by carbamate (urethane) links; most polyurethanes are thermosetting polymers that do not melt when heated.
Unlike concrete, wood and ceramic tile floors that tend to make noise whenever someone walks on them, especially on heals, cushion vinyl provides a silent floor to a house. This makes it ideal for places such as intensive care units (ICU) and library where dead silence is demanded of visitors.

Since vinyl can laid on top of other floors without damaging it, tenants too can install it in their rented apartments.
“My daughter had hard time crawling on ceramic tiles floor since it was slippery and very cold. Seeing she could not play with her toys comfortably, I took to the internet where I searched for alternative flooring that could cover the entire ceramic tiles floor. That’s how I came across cushion vinyl,” Ms Jema Nkorote told DN2.cushion-vinylcampaign-2-cushion
“It is non-slippery, at least I can attest to that since my daughter has not fallen down yet,” says Ms Nkorote referring to her little daughter who was comfortably playing with her toys on the floor when DN2 visited their rental apartment at Valley Arcade along Gitanga Road.

However, Nkorote’s sister is uncomfortable with her sister’s vinyl floor which seems to fade a bit too fast but blames her sister for using detergents to clean the floor, to which Mr Kibaru says, “Since vinyl does not harbour dust, I would advise her to use liquid soap and vinegar as opposed to powder detergents which have chemicals that can discolour the surface of the vinyl.”

Staying with the same floor type for a long period is both monotonous and boring; therefore, cushion vinyl comes as a relief since homeowners and tenants can now afford to change their floors from time to time. And cushion vinyl does not cost an arm and a leg. A square meter of vinyl, Mr Kibaru says, is going for Sh 1000.

Installation
Though, Mr Kibaru, says they have trained personnel whom they link up their clients with for installation purposes, cushion vinyl installation is an easy, do-it-yourself process that any home owner can install with just a little creativity and a few hours to burn.

“You only need a double sided tape, a craft knife, a skirting wood and a door strip to install,” says Mr Kibaru.
To begin with, the subfloor upon which cushion vinyl is to be laid must be clean, smooth and dry. Then, cut the vinyl into the approximate area, allowing for overhang. When this is done, roll the vinyl on and use the craft knife to cut the vinyl at the edges. Alternatively, a straight edge metal or wood and knife can be used to cut in.

Unroll the overhang material and the vinyl will be laid. Use a double sided tape to hold down the vinyl along the perimeter, and at high traffic areas. Also, at the perimeter, a skirting wood, that has a channel for internet cables running along it on the inner side, is used to hold the vinyl firmly on the floor.

Mr Kibaru advises installers to leave a space for expansion between the vinyl and the wall. Once you are done fixing the skirting wood, hammer in the door strip to hold the vinyl firmly at the entrance. In just a couple of hours, you will have a new floor that is not only beautiful but also, depending on your choice, complements the furniture or the wallpaper in the house.

Renting out an apartment,Office or house sometimes does not give you the chance to explore or rather venture into new home designs, You basically stick to the very same style you found the house in to avoid any issues with your landlord and maintain the chances of getting your deposit back. This unfortunately really limits what you could have going on in your space, considering you are paying for it you basically own it (well at least till the next month’s rent) so I believe most of the time it’s only fair you get to put some modern feel into your space, but who said it has to be a decor touch that requires weeks of construction? Here’s where BeauFlor  Cushion Vinyl Flooring Made in Belgium Distributed by Floor Decor Kenya comes in! Let me ease you into it.

Vinyl flooring is a new type if resilient flooring in the market. Resilient flooring has been a round for quite some time being described as simply artificial composite floors such as rubber, plastic, PVC, linoleum. Vinyl is the latest addition to this type of flooring being produced in many parts of the world, especially North America and it makes its debut offering much more style, durability and affordability as compared to its predecessors.

I’m sure when you hear the word, affordable, you want to know exactly how affordable. Well due to the excitement we share for this new flooring product in all our branches Nairobi,Nakuru ,Eldoret ,Kisumu ,Meru and Soon Mombasa  we sure aren’t here to hold back any details. The prices of the Vinyl flooring depends on the wear layer which is determined by the kind of condition the particular floor will be used.

Thanks to the wear layer, if you end up having spilled drinks maybe during a party or just a clumsy situation (I have these situations a lot) you can simply wipe the spilled drink with no worry of stains forming.

Vinyl flooring is waterproof so it can be placed in any area of your house be it the kitchen, living area or bathroom. For me that saves a lot of time and money instead of looking for different products for different spaces. All you have to do is pick any design from the vast styles available at Floor Decor Kenya in Nairobi. I’ll race you there!

You are moving stuff around at home, dragging chairs and tables trying to get a new style and design going on for you, then after you are just about done, you step back and take a look at your space….. it is at that very dramatic point you notice all the scratches on your floor. They are all over!!! It’s a total disaster. Well, how about you get to move your stuff around with no restrictions and most importantly no scratches. Thanks to the Original PERGO® laminate floors Made in Belgium and distributed locally by  Floor Decor Kenya, you can have your beautiful wooden floors stay just the same, as good as new.

I have a tiny very creative niece who is at that age where she loves to draw on things! On the walls, on my clothes and yes she does have a go at my tiling too (I’m sure most of you can relate) So she’ll pick up a pen, crayon or a marker (depending on her mood) and draw her ABC’s and 123’s at a corner of the house. This then pushed me  to find a solution because clearly the “stop it” and “don’t do that sweetie” weren’t really working out for me or my tiles.

I made my way to the Floor Decor Kenya website and started having a look at the options they had for me. The beautiful wooden floor laminate available in 84 different design  looked perfect but the major selling point was that they were easy to clean and they acquired no scratches as compared to other products such as Bamboo and the likes in terms of durability.

No scratches on original Pergo laminate flooring

My first thought was take my money!

Me being a firm believer of seeing is believing, most times reading or hearing about something doesn’t really cut it. So here is a link to a demonstrative YouTube video showing the very profound difference in terms of scratch resistance between Floor Decor Kenya’s PERGO® Original Laminate With Titan X  Surface Protection and other Laminate  flooring  products in the market .

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sReG5EwDRGk

 

If you are aiming for durability then the Original PERGO® Laminate flooring is the thing for you. You don’t have to worry about scratch marks that put off your whole home design and style, how about you save some money and time and go straight for some beautiful wooden PERGO® floors.

WHEN IT COMES to home flooring, clients are spoilt for choice. From plain concrete to elegant patterned wooden or ceramic tiles, the varieties are limitless. However, every type of flooring material has its pros and cons. For instance, concrete floors absorb moisture, have little variety and offer little insulation against sound and heat.

Meanwhile, ceramic tiles are hard on the heels, can be too cold for comfort during the rainy season, and  are unforgiving to breakables such as glass and pottery that might accidentally land on them.

Solid wood flooring is often shunned by the environmentally conscious, while carpets, though adding to the overall aesthetics, tend to accumulate dust and sometimes harbour pathogens.

With the foregoing, laminate flooring seems to be an ideal compromise.

Mr Amos Kibaru, the CEO of Floor Décor Kenya, defines laminate flooring as “a hybrid, high- density fibre board that combines wood fibres with melanin resin”.

The material, which can be made to look like hardwood, stone or ceramic tiles, has a smooth finish that makes it relatively more attractive. A visit to Floor Décor Kenya’s show-room reveals a wide variety of patterns and designs to choose from.

“The design options we offer are limitless, making our product suitable for interior décor enthusiasts,” Mr Kibaru says.

But perhaps the greatest advantage when it comes to laminate flooring is its durability which, Mr Kibaru insists, is forever.

ABRASION CRITERIA

“Our products are composed of four layers, which ensure the stability and integrity of the flooring. They have life-time warranties,” he says,  adding,  that his company had installed laminated floors in motor vehicle showrooms, airports and churches across the country.

Gone are the days when a carpet or big rug were used to cover the floor. Today, floor treatment is as important and part of the decor just like the walls.

When thinking of flooring, there are a couple of things to consider including the durability of the floor, how easy it is to clean, as well as how safe it is for children to run around.

The options in the market are many but wood flooring is proving to be the current trend.

Wooden floors have certain advantages over tiled and cement floors mainly due to their smoothness, brightness, stability, high resistance, insulation qualities and flexibility. They also give a natural beauty.

They are also warm compared to tiled floors which can be cold.

Amos Kibaru of Floor Décor Kenya says it is important to buy flooring from a reliable supplier or the factories to avoid phony items.

“There are a lot of products in the market that are imitations and many buyers are falling prey to such products, so it is good to test the product before a purchase is made,” he says.
