AquaTread® marine flooring is an easy to clean product, allowing more time to enjoy your boat and less time with maintenance. Made from ultra-durable polyvinyl with a non-porous surface, AquaTread has a long-life cycle, ready to handle the heaviest of traffic. The surface is resistant to gas, fish scents, suntan oil and other spills and scents common to watercraft. Dirt, soil, and debris don’t penetrate the surface for easy clean up, avoiding harsh scrubbing. Routine cleaning is necessary and vinyl’s are not stain-proof materials, so it is important to understand the steps to clean and maintain your AquaTread marine flooring. It is important to immediately wipe away any spills, molds or mildews to prevent staining of material. Stains may be caused by, but not limited to the following items: Motor Oil, Gas, Hydraulic Fluid, Suntan Location (screen & oil); Red Colored Drinks (wine, soda, Kool-Aide, etc.); Fish Allure, Urine, Ketchup, Mustard, BBQ Sauce, Coffee, Anti-Freeze, Fuel Stabilizer, Battery Acid and Charcoal Lighter Fluid.
It is important to perform regular maintenance on your floors, to help maintain their lasting durability. AquaTread products are stain resistant, but not stain proof. Never use harsh chemicals such as bleach, acetone, marine hull cleaner, or unsafe chemicals for marine environments. Spills should be cleaned up immediately to avoid staining. Weekly cleaning by spraying down your floors will help prevent any stains from becoming embedded and eliminate the need for future deep cleaning. Evaluate the area you are cleaning before you determine the steps and products needed to complete the job. AquaTread marine flooring is easily washed with mild soaps and other household detergents suitable for vinyl material, even power washing, leaving you more time to enjoy your boat.
