Outdoor rubber flooring is prone to various temperature changes, snow and rain, and may easily deteriorate due to accumulation of mud, tar, salt and other debris. To restore your outdoor rubber flooring, you will need only a few ingredients.


Step 1 –Clean with Detergent

Use 2 tbsp of detergent in a bucket of warm water. Dip the scrub brush into the solution and remove dirt and debris. Rinse the rubber flooring with a hose.

Step 2 – Apply Degreaser

A degreaser can remove remaining dirt and debris. Spray on the degreaser and leave it on for up to 30 minutes. Rinse using a hose.

Step 3 – Remove Salt

Salt may be more difficult to remove with detergent or degreaser, so you can use a solution of diluted vinegar to eliminate salt. Rub the flooring until you see that the salt stains are gone. You may need to apply vinegar several times, scrub and rinse.

Step 4 – Apply Rubber Finishing

To protect your rubber flooring, you should get a rubber finishing solution. Rub the solution into the rubber surface, soak for 5 to 10 minutes and then wipe with a piece of clean cloth.
