Anyone who has ever applied floor finish will likely have a few mistakes that they have made during the process.

*Note: This blog post will be broken down into 3 parts so be sure to follow along.
Let’s start with stripping a floor.
Mistake #1 … Leaving a Little Behind
If the floor was stripped, was it stripped completely? Any areas where the old finish was not completely removed will show up as ‘dull patches’ when the floor is refinished. Using a professional quality stripper like Quick Shine® Deep Cleaner will help, but proper technique is critical.
Mistake #2 … Rushing the Rinse
Are you taking time for a final rinse? Use clean water, a clean mop, and Quick Shine® Deep Cleaner when stripping the finish. If the floor is not completely clean and neutralized prior to the application of floor finish, performance and appearance issues will quickly become evident and you may have to start over. A final clean water rinse is viable to achieve the WOW Factor.
