It is common for rubber to cause stains, scuffs, and spots up on the floor in your kitchen. These stains can appear for various reasons, such as moving furniture or from the bottom of a shoe dragging and leaving a mark. The question is, how can you get rid of these annoying, ugly spots without damaging your floor even more?
Rubber stains can vary depending on what caused them. Some rubber stains can be removed with scraping or scrubbing. Others are not so easily cleaned, and might require some more serious work. You should take into consideration the types of tools you will use to clean the stains and marks, since you don't want to use anything that is too abrasive enough to scratch or otherwise harm your kitchen floor. If you do use something abrasive, take extra care when cleaning.
If you end up with stains and marks from rubber on your kitchen floor, try the following methods to remove the rubber stains.
When cleaning your kitchen floor, remember to test any cleaning solutions on a hidden area. This will allow you to be sure that the cleaner will not have any harmful effects. When moving furniture, take care not to drag it across the floor. Also, don't wear dark-soled shoes in the kitchen to prevent scuff marks.
