As with all Hufcor partition systems, Hufcor highly recommends signing a service and maintenance contract with your local distributor. Annual maintenance by a Hufcor trained installer will keep your partitions properly adjusted and prevent serious, costly damage. This is especially important for hospitality and convention center facilities who depend on revenues from their breakout rooms.
Regular maintenance includes:
- Clean and lightly lubricate all track running surfaces
- Check trolleys (carriers) for signs of abnormal wear or breakage
- Check out-of-plumb panels (indicating loose trolley bolts)
- Check exposed bolts in panel vertical edges
- Check track alignment at all joints and intersections
- Check lever closure (or pivot closure) and adjust as needed
- Check all top and bottom seals for proper functioning
- Operate pass door and adjust as needed
- Check for torn or malfunctioning sound seals
Your partition will require routine cleaning. The cleaning method will vary according to the surface finish. The following vinyl, carpet and fabric cleaning instructions apply to Hufcor standard surfaces. If your partition has non-standard surfaces, please consult the appropriate manufacturer for cleaning instructions.
Hufcor Standard Vinyl
Stains that have dried to a crusted surface should be removed with a clean, stiff brush. Remove all loose particles before applying any liquid cleaning solutions, including soap and water mixtures.
Hufcor recommends cleaning standard vinyl with warm water and a mild soap such as Dawn. Apply to the surface with a clean white cloth, then wipe dry with a clean cloth. If necessary, gently rub the surface with a brush to loosen dirt before wiping dry.
Vinyl may also be cleaned with industrial stain-removers. Hufcor recommends Tech Stain Remover, 3M Citrus Base Industrial Cleaner or Spartan, SD-20, All-Purpose Cleaner.
For removal of grease and oil-based stains such as lipstick or greasy foods, use Oakite Safety-Solv, Degreaser Safety Solvent. Test a small inconspicuous spot before use. Do not use lacquer thinner or other strong chemicals. These materials are harmful to vinyl.
Chewing gum, candle wax or other waxy substances may be removed by rubbing the spot with ice so that the material becomes brittle. The brittle substance can then be picked off the wall covering and cleaned.
Hufcor Standard Fabrics and Carpets
Remove the stain as soon as possible, as stains on carpet will become more difficult to remove if they are allowed to dry. With a cleaning brush, remove any loose particles before applying liquid cleaning solutions.
First, apply a cleaner such as Tech Stain Remover, or Spartan SD-20 All-Purpose Cleaner Shampoo to a clean white towel. Gently blot dry with a second clean white towel. Stubborn dirt or grease may be removed with Oakite Safety-Solv, Degreaser Safety Solvent. Always test a clean, inconspicuous area before applying cleaner.
When cleaning stains with liquid solutions avoid oversaturation. Over-saturation distributes the stain deeper into the fibers and may cause a ring once the stained area dries. It is better to repeat cleaning than it is to oversaturate.
Always use the minimum amount of cleaning solvent needed to remove a stain.
The aluminum trim is powder coated. Mild soap and water is all that is needed for cleaning.
Clean regularly with mild soap and water. To prevent soap buildup, rinse well with clean water.
