Slip resistance is the roughness of a floor that creates positive traction and reduces the possibility of slipping and falling.
The coefficient of friction (COF) is the metric used to gauge the slipperiness of a floor or tub. It is defined as the force necessary to hold two materials together (the foot and the floor) and the maximum force necessary to resist sliding.
Slip-resistance of flooring materials may be influenced by the cleaning regime, maintenance, contamination, deterioration due to wear, and traffic pattern.
You can use steam cleaners to remove dirt build-up from these textured floors. If you are using a mop, make sure you choose the right one. Sponge mops will likely disintegrate on the floor. Using a rag mop (or similar), that is soaked with water will help to keep the mop from sticking.
Mop lightly over the area and scrub tough areas with a sponge or scrub brush by hand. Dry the area with a towel to keep the dirt in the water from resettling into the grooves of the floor.
Maintain the cleanliness of your non-slip floor by mopping it thoroughly on a weekly basis so as to prevent build-up.
Take note that due to the aggregate that is broadcast onto the coating of an aggressive slip-resistant component being larger and more angular, it is harder to clean. Therefore, if you want to be able to clean your floor faster and easier, you can opt for a less aggressive slip resistance treatment.
