Advanced Floor Refinishing Tips
TIP 1 - If you are refinishing floors as you did just two years ago, you are perhaps spending twice as much on chemistry and taking two and a half times longer than necessary.
TIP 2 - If you are still relying heavily on floor stripper chemistry, you are utilizing much riskier labor practices than you need to.
TIP 3 - If you are waiting five to seven days to replace furniture, so that it does not stick to your newly refinished floors, you can reduce that to same-day furniture resetting.
TIP 4 - Standard floor refinishing often takes two or three custodians working together. Advanced methods can be handled by a single, well-trained janitor.
TIP 5 - Advanced techniques utilize technological breakthroughs to gain productivity:
Orbital scrubbing - Much more thorough and effective finish removal by both micro and macro scrubbing motions
Mechanical stripping - Trading in slippery, odorful stripper for surface prep pad use with water
Ultra-fast drying, long-life finishes - Refinishing much faster and less often to improve budgets in a major way.
Propane burnishing - Fast, efficient finishing with a propane walk-behind has to be experienced to be fully appreciated. We can help with that...see the opportunity to apply for a demonstration below.
Replacement of chemistry with water - Water and surface prep pads can do more work faster than chemical stripping, requires no neutralizing and costs very little.
TIP 6 - The results of these methods are:
- Better looking floors
- Longer periods between restoration work
- Less slip and fume issues for operators
- Much shorter finish times
- Much less lost opportunity/inconvenience for building occupants
- Lower department costs through productivity improvements
