An unprotected vinyl floor will absorb lots of dirt, for this reason it should be protected before it’s first walked on. However, over a period of time this wears off and so periodically the floor needs cleaning/stripping and fresh polish reapplied. Where an old polish needs removing, a stripping chemical is applied to loosen the polish. It is then thoroughly scrubbed and the dirty slurry is taken up with a wet and dry vacuum. The surface is then neutralised. Once the floor is thoroughly clean and dry, several coats of a tough floor sealer are applied. Then several coats of polish gives a long lasting shine that not only protects the floor but also enhances its appearance.
