The raised floor is made up of many removable elements; in particular the panels that constitute the walking surface lean against each other; the stability of the product must therefore be safeguarded by following some simple maintenance rules:
In case of removal of non-whole panels, care must be taken to reposition them in their original position. Regular and appropriate cleaning is an important factor in maintaining the characteristics of the raised floor:
During cleaning it is necessary to pay particular attention to water: if used in improper quantities and not collected immediately, it could penetrate into the cavity, passing through the various openings (for example those for power sockets, sockets for fire extinguishers, connections for vacuum cleaners, etc.) and cause damage to the proper functioning of the underlying systems.
The infiltration of water could then cause the creation of mold and accumulations of moisture which, over time, could also damage the metal structures and panels. In addition to water, all cleaning products containing substances such as resin or wax that can form an insulating film must also be avoided, which could prevent electrostatic discharge to the detriment of the most sensitive equipment.
It should be remembered that, depending on the type of coating adopted, there are specific cleaning products and relative technical data sheets.
Normally no maintenance contracts are stipulated with the manufacturers or distributors of raised floors. This, both in the case of ordinary and extraordinary maintenance, is entrusted to the cleaning company of the client.
