Please note: EARTH is composed of 100% EPDM rubber in solid and near solid colors. Due to natural characteristics of the rubber, some tiles may vary in color. This includes, but is not limited to: shading from tile to tile; shading within individual tiles; a framing effect in which darker pigments will form around the border of the tile. Although these are not considered to be defects, in order to combat these natural occurrences, Summit International Flooring recommends dry laying the tiles before installation. If any tiles show more shading or framing than others, it is suggested that these tiles are placed under furniture or against walls where they are likely to be cut.
Decorative EPDM rubber floors have a slight texture, so the proper way to clean them is with an extraction machine that incorporates rotating brushes. Between extractions, vacuuming will help, and most stains can be spot cleaned with Soft Scrub and a sponge.
Production runs can have slight dye lot differences, and will match samples as closely as possible.
