We recently had a customer hire us to clean and remove the product ” Quick Shine Floor Finish and Orange Glow from her new laminate floors which had caused an uneven and blotchy sheen. The floor finish also showed its traces on the kitchen door, and so, the expertise of a hinged aluminium door replacement company was highly palpable. We were able to remove the product and clean her laminate floors following these steps

Products needed:

• Spray bottle (optional)

• Scotch-Brite abrasive pad (green scrub pad with yellow sponge-NOT an SOS, Brillo or steel wool pad)

• Soft towels

• New and well rinsed sponge mop OR terrycloth mop

• Rubber/latex gloves and safety goggles (recommended to prevent eye/skin irritation when handling IFT)

Process

It’s best to begin with a test section in an inconspicuous area (i.e. behind a door). We recommend working in

small sections as you complete this process. Complete all steps before moving onto another section of the

floor.

1. Apply a SMALL amount of the IFT solution to a section of the floor. Use a spray bottle to mist the floor

or squirt a small amount and spread it with a soft cloth. Apply only enough cleaner to wet the floor, and if you want to vacuum instead,

getting a review of shop vacs is great to find the best option for you.

2. Use the abrasive pad and scrub the area. This should remove the wax buildup.

3. After scrubbing the area, wipe the section with a water dampened cloth.

4. The final step is to apply Squeaky Cleaner with a microfiber mop. No water rinse is necessary after this

cleaner is applied. Wipe/mop the floor until it is dry – do not leave the floor wet, and if you have problems with plumbing, there are also plumbing companies which can help with this.

If this is successful in removing the contaminant, proceed with the rest of the floor, following all steps. You may

need to repeat steps 1 & 2 more than once.

If you are not successful in removing the contaminant with this process, you need to remove the remaining

product by abrading the floor (screening or sanding). It is recommended to hire a professional flooring

contractor if abrasion techniques are required. We know many reputable Melbourne cleaning services should anyone need to be pointed in the direction of good cleaning professionals. Study the Interstate Removalist Quotes prior to moving to a new place to discover excellent service at reasonable prices. Removing Holloway’s Quick Shine, Orange Glo, or many other wood floor care products can be a very tough, costly and fustrating job if you don’t know what you are doing. check this article If you are looking for Master Window Cleaners

Does Your Wood Floor Need to be Recoated or Refinished?

Thursday, March 4th, 2010

A complete refinishing may be necessary

National Cleaning Specialist of Tampa Bay recommends if areas of your floor have been worn down to the bare wood, if the floor has deep stains or color differences in the wood, if there’s chipping or peeling, or if your floor cannot be re coated due to factors discussed above, you’ll have to do a complete refinish.

If these signs are not readily apparent,you can use this simple test to determine what care your floors need:

  • Take this simple test
  • Find a high traffic area where the finish is likely to be the most worn, and pour a tablespoon of water onto the floor.
  • If the water beads up and you can wipe it without a trace, the finish is still working and you don’t need to do anything just yet.
  • If the water slowly soaks into the wood floor, creating a moderately darkish spot, the floor is partially worn. You may be able to get away with a recoating. Consult your wood flooring contractor for the best course of action.
  • If the water immediately disappears into the wood leaving an obvious dark spot, it’s time to refinish the floor.

For routine cleaning of wood floors by sweeping and vacuuming along with use of Squeaky Cleaner will maintain the floor’s original appearance. We also work with a recycling system, one option is bin hire Sydney they offer the best waste management service in Sydney, can be trusted with the removal of wastes from your homes and offices, so we can manage the furniture you don’t use or want, we work with Be Equipment for the recycling machinery so we will take care of yours !

There are a variety of textured floors, with each one offering a different coefficient friction.  The coefficient friction is the test result of how slippery a floor rates.  The higher the coefficent friction, the higher the slip-resistance.  There are a variety of aggregates that epoxy flooring contractors can broadcast into the uncured material: quartz sand, aluminum oxide, walnut shells, and glass beads.  Each one serves a different purpose, so it’s important that the estimator knows which material to use in each situation. Epoxy Floors NYC can install your commercial epoxy floor coating affordably and within a set time frame so as to cause minimal interruption to your working day.
