Stain table for common stain-causing substances

If the substances listed in the following are removed immediately from the floorcovering, no stains will result. Stain may only develop if the substances have dried.

The treatment of stains may cause the flooring to brighten up within the area involved. The initial polishing operations that follow, using highly concentrated wash polish products, for example, will correct this difference of brightness to a large extent. Depending on the quantity and size of the stains, basic cleaning work followed by initial polishing operations may be appropriate, so as to obtain a uniform appearance

Stain table for dried-on medicine

Medical substances are frequently the cause of stains on floor coverings. Stains will not appear if the substances listed in the table below are removed from the flooring straight away. They can only develop if the media are allowed to dry out. Treating stains can cause fading in the affected places, and is usually the result of using higher concentrations of mop-care products after spillages. Depending upon the number and size of the stains, once they have been removed it may be advisable to clean the entire floor followed by a care treatment to assure a uniform overall appearance. This should be done using nora special cleaner by following the instructions in the technical leaflet. Change the exposure times according to the age and intensity of the stain. An unpleasant odour may be given off when cleaning large areas.
