Microcement Maintenance

What must be done to maintain the microcement?

MICROCEMENT MAINTENANCE – In this post we will talk about the maintenance and care that our ONEROCK ready-to-use microcement requires. In other posts, the advantages of ONEROCK over other traditional microcements have already been explained: it is waterproof, it is faster to apply, and it is very resistant. But, what would be its maintenance?

The maintenance of the Lunik microcement is zero, it does not need any repetitive work so that its life is as long as possible. In case of surfaces with a lot of traffic of people, two types of work can be carried out to prevent the wear of the varnish layer. The simplest would be to apply acrylic wax every few years, to revitalize the surface. The other option is to sand the surface to open the pore of the polyurethane and apply a full coat of polyurethane every few years. On surfaces with a lot of wear we recommend this second option.

The First Cares

Once the ONEROCK microcement has been applied, the first days you have to be very careful as the surface could be damaged and the repair would be complicated. During the first week, avoid doing work on the surface, and it is also important to avoid liquid spills.

Once the first week has passed, it could be cleaned with water, although always avoiding puddles. We must be extremely careful with heavy objects, to prevent them from falling and damaging the polyurethane.

Microcement Precautions

Once the microcement and polyurethane have cured in about a month, a series of care must be taken to keep the surfaces in perfect condition. Cleaning is recommended with water and neutral soap. If you want to use more aggressive products, they must always be diluted in water.

ONEROCK is not recommended on surfaces that are at high temperature. In the case of kitchen countertops, avoid contact with hot pans or pots.

Cleaning a microcement surface should preferably be done with a neutral detergent using manual means. Subsequently, the water must be rinsed and absorbed with a mop or liquid suction system. Puddles of water should never be left for a long time and this water should always be removed. The application of acrylic wax is very beneficial and will make the floor less dirty.
