Once these are in place the floor should be thoroughly swept to remove dust and foreign objects. After a sweeping the floor will be mopped to remove any sticky substances or dirt. How long these initial procedures take will depend on the size of the room and the condition of the floor.
Once the floor has been mopped, the commercial full cleaning process will begin in earnest. For the next stage the floor cleaner will mix the floor stripper in a bucket with cold water. When the stripper has been diluted I will be spread over the floor’s surface with a mop and allowed to soak into the floor. This will usually take around ten minutes though it should not be allowed to dry into the floor.
Next a floor machine with a stripping pad will be run over the surface of the floor. The cleaner will move the machine in small circular movements to enhance the stripping process.
