Stripping and recoating hard floors is both costly and labor-intensive. With limited financial resources building owners and managers would prefer end users to develop daily floor maintenance programs that improve the floor’s appearance and keep it looking good for as long as possible.
“For years, customers accepted the fact that floors had to be completely stripped and recoated after a certain period of time,” says Chris Martini, director of marketing and special projects for Central Sanitary Supply in Modesto, Calif. “The mentality is shifting toward a scrub and recoat process and a focus on how we maintain the floor in between, as well as how we prevent dirt from getting on that floor finish to begin with.”
The daily grind
According to jan/san distributors, an effective daily maintenance program is the first line of defense in reducing the frequency of stripping and recoating.
