How can our products work for you? As you prepare to refinish your floors consider the pros and cons of the process. Does the finish need to dry quickly, or can the area be closed off for dry time? Who is applying the finish? Do they have the training needed? Determining the parameters up front can help you save time, money and your sanity. Below are the steps involved in making, and keeping, your floors in tip top shape. Let's get started.
What are you working with? The first step in floor finishing is to identify the type of flooring in your facility. Has it been finished before? How will the introduction of the WAXIE Diamond Guard system affect it?
Stripping all of the old finish off of your floor is essential to creating a shiny new surface. Removing the old sealer and finish reveals the base level of flooring in its porous and unprotected state. Once all of the coatings have been removed the floor is in a state where a new sealer and finish can bond with the base.
Sealing a floor provides the base and the barrier needed to protect floors from dirt and enhance material longevity. Sealers are made of smaller polymer molecules than finishes, so the molecules fill the porous material more easily and the base builds faster than that of finish. These polymer molecules create a strong film that can withstand daily and interim maintenance, including scrubbing and recoating of finish.
Floor finish is like the icing on a cake – it makes everything better! Floor finishes have smoother polymer molecules than sealers, so light is reflected back to the eye as opposed to being deflected. The molecular difference in finishes also makes them easier to remove than sealers, so they can be maintained and enhanced on a regular basis.
Daily cleanings keep dirt and debris from getting ground into a floor, where it can abrade the finish and deteriorate the coatings. Daily cleanings also extend the life of the sealers and finishes which limits the amount of time and work intensive strip and recoat procedures.
