Low Maintenance Floor Care System

A truly progressive system in the cleaning industry, the Low Maintenance Floor Care System seeks to reduce the amount of harsh chemicals which are used when stripping floors by alleviating the need to strip and recoat floors on a regular basis. The highly alkali strippers can cause respiratory distress to both those who use them on a regular basis as well as those who work or use the area in which they are used.  In addition, these products may cause long-term damage to the environment when flushed into the sewage system.  Finally, the Low Maintenance Floor Care System reduces the amount of labour involved in maintaining a proper floor finish resulting in dramatic savings in overall costs.

The basis of the system is simple:

  1. Use Enviro-Care Floor Finish, an environmentally sensitive zinc-free finish that has been built from the ground-up using a specially designed group of polymers which produce a high gloss, slip resistant and scuff resistant finish.
  2. Use three coats of finish in moderate layers, after having removed all soil and coating residues.
  3. Control the introduction of particulate through a progressive system involving entrance matting, proper dusting, and proper seals on doors and windows.
  4. Dust mop and damp mop on a regular basis using a truly neutral cleaner.
  5. As signs of wear indicate, maintain the original base coats of finish with the use of an ongoing system of buffing/burnishing, restoration and periodic deep scrub and recoat.

The key to the system is to protect the underlying base coats, which protects the floor, since dirt and discolouration will not penetrate the base coats, by conducting relatively minor and inexpensive ongoing maintenance to the upper levels of finish.  When done according to our guidelines, the need to strip and refinish the floor can be cut up to 50% or more.  For example, a floor which was stripped and recoated three or four times per year may need this procedure done only once per year.   

Since stripping and refinishing a floor is the most labour intensive procedure in regards to floor care and since 90% of the cost of cleaning is labour, the cost saving involved in this system most often pays for the implementation of a proper particulate control system in the first year while allowing staff to spend the “found time” doing cleaning and maintenance work that they otherwise would not have time to accomplish.
