Hey guys, I'm cleaning a local 24hr. Fitness carpet, tile and the majority of it is rubber mat and honestly I've never cleaned anything like that before. What process, equipment and chemicals should be used? Pretty bad traffic areas. Any advise would greatly be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Those ruber mats have a ton of dirt on them....
Gota vacuum them over and over.....
Then steam clean them over and over ...5-6 cleanings......
Almost better to take them to a car wash...
Or to your house and hose them down with a pressure washure
On a tilted driveway

Ya pressure wash would prob be the way to go but unfortunately it's not an option. Thanks for the vacuuming suggestion honestly I would of skipped that step.

Sorry bro didnt read the whole thread....
I thought those were walkway pickup mats.......

I would clean it with a spinner kinda like tile...
Unless you have a zipper or bonzr would be great...
Use resturant prespot.......and steam alcaline rinse.....
Shudnt have any problem....

Might scrub some of the heavy area with 175 or crb....
24 hour use the crb???????
And fan to dry...shud dry up pretty fast....
Best to have a pumpout

175 and spinner sounds like a winner. Thanks for the advice.

Maybe... Assuming these are like the 24" square rubber mats that lock together, a spinner might put a lot of water under the matts. I've seen gyms with carpet under those too so that would be a big problem.
If you could, get us a picture of the rubber mats in question.
