Follow these simple steps to remove tape reside from Alvas dance floors:

  1. Thoroughly sweep Alvas Matlay/Marlay dance floor with a clean dust mop.
  2. Dab denatured alcohol onto a clean cotton cloth until a portion of the cloth becomes saturated.
  3. Rub the saturated cloth onto affected area (with the tape residue) in a back and forth motion until the residue is gone.

If the residue still has not been removed even after following the above instructions:

  1. Dab turpentine onto a clean cotton cloth until a portion of the cloth becomes saturated.
  2. Rub the saturated cloth onto affected area (with the tape residue) in a back and forth motion until the residue is gone.
  3. Once the residue is removed, rub the affected area again with denatured alcohol (same procedure). The denatured alcohol will remove the slippery residue that turpentine will leave behind.

Alvas also offers a Matlay/Marlay cleaning and re-taping service. Contact us for more information.
