Avmor's Floor Care Training Guide
 

Top Scrub & Recoat

A deep scrub removes soil in the top layer of the floor finish and prevents dirt from being trapped between recoats. If the floor dulls quickly after spray buffing or high speed buffing, it is normally a symptom of thinning and/or soiled floor finish. This condition requires a deep scrub and recoat.

Tips & Tricks
  • Floor must be thoroughly rinsed and completely dry before recoat.
  • Always use clean equipment, mops & pads.
  • Use an old section of the walk off matting to place equipment (buckets, floor mops) in order to help keep area clean.
  • Select the chemical and dilution that is aggressive enough to remove dirty polish layers.
  • If you use pads, chemical or a machine that is too aggressive it might cause a complete stripping procedure.
   Top Scrubbing Option #2: Auto Scrubbing

Apply solution to floor. Scrub floor, do
not pick up solution,
allow to dwell for 5
minutes.



Scrub the floor with desired pad, squeegee up, double pass and vacuum turned off.


Flip or change pads as required. On second pass, scrub floor with squeegee down and vacuum on to pick up dirty solution.
