How to Care for Your Skirting System

Solid Vinyl Skirting can be cleaned easily with an ordinary garden hose. A soft-bristled brush attachment on the hose will make the job easier.

A strong detergent mixed with water can be used when the skirting is soiled. To avoid spotting, the cleaning solution should not stand on the surface for a prolonged time before rinsing.

Avoid use of abrasive cleaners, sandpaper and abrasive pads that may damage the surface of the skirting system. Variform... for beauty, durability, and protection.
