The cleaning process is made up of a number of operations: –
Cleaning agents should always be used in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions, normally in dilute form.
After applying evenly and leaving for between 1 and 5 minutes, brushing can begin. High-efficiency cleaning can be achieved by scrubbing. The efficiency can be increased with detachable brushes.
After vacuuming and drying a suitable care product should be applied. This covered the surface (which now has open pores) with a thin dispersion of wax-based film, which prevents or delays further contamination. These care products can be removed by thorough cleaning.
Care products can be matt or gloss. Their effect on slip resistance should be checked in every case.
Newly applied flooring should normally be given a thorough clean, followed by application of a care product. This protects the surface from further contamination.
Conductive coatings should not be treated with film forming care products. These products form an insulated film on the flooring surface.
The above companies are familiar and experts in all types of industrial floor cleaning and procedures.
Please observe the full cure and chemical resistance before wet cleaning is carried out. Water may sometimes damage the surface if cleaning is carried out before full cure is achieved, such as water spotting or salt formation on the surface.
