  • Mannington Adura FAQ

    Q. How do I remove stains from my Adura floor?

    A. Most household stains can be removed with the use of the Mannington Heavy Duty Cleaner Stripper. For additional information regarding common stains see the Stain Solver page.

    Q. How durable is Adura?

    A. Adura is a very durable product and is an excellent choice for high traffic areas or in areas with moisture, such as kitchens, bathrooms or laundry rooms. Its durability is supported by a powerful 20-year warranty against wear, fade, stain, and delamination. Please be sure to follow the care and maintenance guidelines.

    Q. What type of chair protectors can I use on Adura flooring?

    A. Support furniture with wide-bearing, non-staining floor protectors. Ideally, the protectors should be at least one inch in diameter, made of non-pigmented, hard plastic and rest flat on the floor. Non-staining felt protectors are also acceptable. Casters with a minimum 3/4" flat surface width or floor protectors are recommended for all moveable furniture. Make sure any metal protectors are rustproof. Replace your narrow-dome furniture rests with wide-bearing ones.

    Q. What type of mat can I place on my Adura floor?

    A. Use doormats outside each entrance to your home to prevent dirt, sand, grit and other substances such as oil, asphalt and driveway sealer from being tracked onto your floor. Use non-staining mats on your floor. Do not put rubber-backed, latex-backed or cocofiber mats on your floor as they may stain or damage the surface. Staining can also occur if there is a dye transfer from an object that has been laid on the floor. This type of staining is not covered under the warranty, as we cannot control what kinds of objects are laid on our floors. We recommend only placing mats that state "non-staining" on the tag.
