The non-porous, highly dense surface of nora rubber makes cleaning easy to handle – as it’s coating-free and requires little more than water to keep looking new. When it comes to economical cleaning, nora is unbeatable.
An easy cleaning system is the best way to maintain a beautiful appearance. For this, you need surfaces that contribute to an economical and efficient solution. Floors are the largest surface in a room that need to be cleaned.
Non-porous wax-free surfaces are therefore very important, as are the possibilities for repair and renovation, not least in the framework of a holistic life-cycle cost analysis.
Economic analysis of flooring shows that investment costs represent only a small part of total costs. Up to 90% of the costs will only be incurred later, in its useable life. These include regularly recurring protective film restoration, basic cleaning, the application of new coatings, and the associated downtime costs. nora rubber floor coverings, in contrast, are uniquely economical over their useable life thanks to their low follow-up costs.
