Before anything we post wet floor signs. The signs
must indicate which areas are being stripped
1 - Preparing the surface
The first step in performing a Floor stripping is to
dust mop or sweep floor area and remove any
foreign debris, i.e. gum, tar etc. We go beyond.
Here's Jean preparing the surface before work
We only start the floor cleaning once all holes are
2 - mixing proper solution
At this moment I mix proper solution of stripper with
the correct amount of cold water in the mop bucket
(Cold water and not hot water. Much of the active
ingredients in floor strippers will become very active
(create a vapor) if mixed with HOT water. We don't
want to to weaken the strength of the stripper).
3 - mopping the diluted Stripper
Here I am mopping the diluted stripper over the
area. I always allow adequate time for penetration
of the stripper. Under normal conditions the diluted
stripper should remain on the floor surface for 7 - 10
minutes. Important Note: I don't allow stripper
solution to dry on the floor surface.
4 - mopping the diluted Stripper
After a period of proper chemical reaction has
passed (approximately 7 - 10 minutes), I begin to
agitate the floor surface with a floor machine
equipped with a PT-2000 stripping pad. Notice here
how I work with a small circular motion moving
about the area being stripped.
We do use a utility pad holder with handle, properly
equipped with a black pad. All the area must be
agitated, including baseboards (never cut corners!).
5 - vacuuming
All stripper solution is now retrieved with a
commercial quality wet vacuum equipped with the
proper floor squeegee tool.
6 - quality controlAfter floor has dried, we check check to make sure
that ALL the stripper residue has been removed by
running our hands across the floor surface. If there
is slight residue present on ours hand, we repeat
the process until is perfect.
