1: The guide to Floor polishing
The following procedure is for reapplying coats to an already finished floor or applying finish to a new floor.  When finishing a new floor always follow the manufacturers recommendations for prepping the floor.  You should always consult the flooring manufacturer on the types of finishes that are suited to your floor.  When finishing any floor we recommend that you use a quality floor finish that is correctly matched to your flooring. Our online floor finishing procedure is are the general guidelines for finishing a floor.  These days floor finish has become the alternative to old fashioned waxes.  Floor finish can give a floor a great long lasting shine without the problems of conventional waxes.
Procedure:
  •      Make sure that your floor has been prepared for finishing.  Clean the floor removing as much dirt and debris as possible.  If the floor has more than 5 coats of finish we recommend stripping the floor first.  Too many layers of finish can dull a floor.  Over time floor finish can yellow in color if you see any yellowing on the floor we also recommend that you strip the floor first. (for more information on stripping a floor click here).
  •     After you have the floor has been prepared vacuum or dust mop the floor to remove any dust.  We recommend that you spray your duct mop with dust mop treatment to remove as much dust as possible.  Make sure to remove anything stuck to the floor, anything that is on the floor when you finish it will become part of the floor finish and you will have to strip your floor an begin again.
  •     Make sure that the floor are you are finishing does not and will not have traffic moving through it for at least 12 - 24 hours depending on the type of finish that your are applying (see floor finish manufacturers specifications for curing and drying time).  Use warning signs to make sure the area where you are finishing is marked out so that everyone is aware of the area.
  •     Finishing a floor requires the use of two mop buckets.  One bucket will be used to keep the finish mop damp and the other will be used to apply the floor finish.  Line the floor finish bucket with a pedal bin liner so that you can dispose of the finish easily after the job is complete.
  •     Fill one mop bucket 1/2 way up with water and the lined mop bucket 1/4 full with floor finish.  Dip you finish mop into the water bucket and wring until the mop is damp and water does not drip from the end.  Next, dip the damp mop into the floor finish and wring until the finish mop does not drip. 
  •     The best way to finish floors is to divide the floor into sections to assure that an even amount of floor finish is applied everywhere.  Begin applying the floor finish at the furthest corner from the entrance.  Apply floor finish to the baseboard area first (a block applicator can be a great tool for this job) working away from the corner.  Make sure the floor finish is going on to the floor in a thin even coat.
  •     After you have applied floor finish to the baseboard move on to the open areas of the floor.  Move the mop head in a figure eight motion overlapping mopping sections by about an inch.
  •     After you have applied the finish evenly to the entire area let the floor dry.  The floor should look glossy with no raised areas or drip marks.  Follow the floor finish manufacturers recommendations for drying time.  Depending on the floor finish you may wish to apply more than one coat of floor finish, if so, let the floor dry in between coats. You may also want to buff the floor in between coats so that the second coat adheres better to the first coat.
  •      To maintain the new look of the floor finish you can burnish with a burnishing floor pad, again see the manufacturers recommendations for maintenance on your floor.
  •       After 12 hours your floor should be fully cured. Floor traffic can now resume.
2: The guide too Wet Mopping A Floor
  • ·Use proper wet floor sign. Proper floor signs are available in bright yellow with hazzard signs.  A slip on a wet floor can cost you money from accidents and lawsuits.  Wet floor signs are relatively inexpensive and can fold away neatly so they don't take up much space.
  • ·Prepare the area by moving an obstacles before mopping begins. 
  • ·Sweep, vacuum or dust mop the floor to remove any large debris. 
  • ·When wet mopping a floor use two buckets.  One bucket should be used for your cleaning solution and the other should contain fresh cold water as a rinse.  Not rinsing a floor can leave a dull chemical haze and make the floor slippery in spots. 
  • ·Make sure to follow the manufacturers directions when using any cleaning chemicals, this will insure that you get optimum performance from your floor cleaner.  Fill your bucket 2/3 full for both buckets.
  • ·When mopping a floor, work from the farthest corner of the room to the entrance.  To mop open flooring move the mop from left to right in a figure eight motion. Move back one step after each side to side motion.  The mop tip 20 degrees from a vertical position toward the person moping.  The mop should pass at approximately 12-16 inches from the feet. 
  • ·When mopping hallways let the mop strands just touch the wall or baseboards.  Move down the sides of the hallways first and then mop down the center.
  • ·When the mop  starts to look dirty plunge the mop head into your solution up and down about three times.  Place the mop in the wringer and apply firm pressure with the handle.  Turn the mop around in the wringer and apply pressure with the wringer handle once more.
  • ·After the room has been mopped with your floor cleaning chemical let the floor dry.  Once the floor has dried fully repeat the process using your fresh water rinse.  Letting the floor dry first can reduces the chance of slipping when performing the fresh water rinse.
  • ·After these steps have been completed clean and store the floor mopping tools. 

      3: The guide to Mop maintenance

 Proper mop maintenance can make your mops last up the 5 times longer and help you do a  much  better job of cleaning your floors. Here are some simple steps to follow:

·   Before using a mop head clean in warm water to make sure that any chemicals that were used on prior used are rinsed out.

·   Let the mop wringer rinse the mop.  Do not twist the wet mop in the wringer this can loosen the wet mop strands.

·   Try not to leave the mop in the mop water over night, this can bread bacteria and also weaken the wet mop fibers.

·   After using your wet mop heads soak in hot water for up to 10 minutes and then rinse thoroughly.

·    Hang mop heads to dry after soaking, this prevents mold forming on the mop.

·     Try to have a mop a different mop head for different types of jobs especially if your using more than one type of floor cleaner.

·    Launder your wet mops heads on a regular basis this will prevent your mops being broken down by chemicals and should prevent mold.  Make sure to use a mop head laundry bag so that the mops don't tangle

·    When washing your wet mop try not to use bleach.  Bleach will break down your mop fibers over time.  Use a mild disenfectant that is suited to mop laundering.
