Question

Recently some of the floors in this building were striped and recoated with an ultraviolet system. What is the best way to maintain them daily and more specific what is the process for striping and refinishing?


Answer

Go to the finish manufacturer's website and do the needed research. These surfaces are tough and designed to withstand wear and tear. However, they are also hard to strip and you will need specific products and procedures to be successful.
Try to delay the strip for as long as possible to get the most for your investment. Proper maintenance will make that possible.
