Step 1- Strip the floor
This is step one, and possible the most important step.
It is very important vinyl floors to be stripped back properly to remove previous applications, scuffed markets and dirt, in order for later chemical applications to get the right adhesion and consistency across the substrate.
Step 2- Wash down
After the chemical stripper has been applied and the surface has been scrubbed with a orbital machine, washing back the surface is very important to the quality of the outcome given by the re-sealing chemicals used later in the process.
2 or 3 washes may be required to finish this process.
Step 3- Apply the Re-Sealer
Now that there is a stripped back and very clean surface, the application of re-sealer is quite simple. Care must be taken to ensure that the chemical is applied consistently across all surfaces.
This typical means 2-3 coats of sealer is applied.
Step 4- Drying time and buffing
The sealer needs to now harden through drying.
This can be sped up using hot air blowers, but ideally if the ambient temperature is moderate, an overnight curing is enough.
Then buffing pads are attached to an orbital polisher and the surface is polished to ensure that there is a lustre to the appearance of the floors upon completion.
