Resurrecting non-skid

We have some Treadmaster non-skid in our companionway that is starting to get kind of slippery. It still has raised diamonds, so I got to believe it is still good. I tried taking a wire brush to it, but that only cleaned the dirt off, but did little for making it less slippery.

Does anyone know how I can resurrect this non-skid to make it less slippery? Is there a liquid I can put on it to rough it up? Or something else I can do? Any info would be helpful. Thanks.

Treadmaster makes their own paint to revive the nonskids looks, but I have no idea if it increases grip...

I resolved the problem!!

I had some vinyl cleaner lying around, eyed the sprayer, and took it to the Treadmaster! Turns out the tread was just full of dirt. Once I cleaned it up it works just fine!!
