The Maintenance Coat Process
We start our project by answering any questions and talking to homeowners about any concerns. Then the floors vacuumed and wet tacted. Then we wet mop to remove all remaining impurities.
The pH cleansers are utilized on the floor to ensure all dirt and grime have been removed. The combination of pH cleansers and mechanical scrubbing create an ideal work surface for our team.
Next week but the floor. Buffing the floor removes some of the imperfections like small scratches and marks. The buffing also abrades the surface creating a way for the new finish to bond to the floor.
Once the floor has been cleaned and buffed we can apply a new coat of finish. Our professional team utilizes high-quality finishes to ensure a high quality, durable top coat. The finish helps to fill in any scratching and create an even beautiful sheen that often resembles the way the floor looked when it was first installed.
