Strip it back and protect the surface
This is where vinyl strip and seal services come in. To ensure durability, most vinyl floors will have some form of seal on the top. This covers and protects the floor, helping it to last longer and withstand the stress which it encounters in everyday life.
With a strip and seal clean, the upper surface is stripped and removed using specially designed tools and solutions. The cleaner is left to soften the existing seal and then scrubbed thoroughly using a slow-speed polisher with a stripping pad to remove all of the seal and expose the floor below.
The floor beneath is then cleaned and treated with specialised cleaning fluid to achieve a deep and thorough clean, before being ‘neutralised’ with a solution that contains a PH-neutralising additive to help preserve longevity. The surface is then thoroughly dried, and fresh layers of high quality sealer are added.
South QLD Restoration offer strip and seal services for all floors. The vinyl strip and seal process involves us stripping your floor of its previous layer of sealant using a safe stripping agent to remove all ingrained dirt from within the vinyl surface including any textured or embossed surfaces. Once the vinyl has been thoroughly deep cleaned and stripped back removing all contaminants and residues, we need to neutralise and rinse the floor allowing it to dry fully before applying any protective coating. Only then do we apply the new protective layer. When a future spill should occur, the residue will sit on top of the floor rather than being absorbed and makes the spill easy to wipe away.
Strip, Seal and Polish
Although vinyl floors are designed to be extremely durable, they require a level of maintenance to preserve their resilience and shine. South QLD Restoration offer both residential and commercial floor maintenance services that rejuvenate and revitalise your hard floors. These services include floor stripping, refinishing, sealing and once floors are totally dry, a high shine polishing. This means the floor is buffed to leave a high gloss finish to restore the look of your floors’ surface and make them appear as good as new.
South QLD Restoration will provide a professional, personalised service totally tailored to you.
Commercial Vinyl Flooring Strip and Seal
As a professional floor maintenance company, we are familiar with carrying out strip & seals, deep cleans and maintenance cleaning in a variety of industries from multi-site retail, stadiums, industrial, offices, shopping centres, car showrooms, healthcare centres, hospitals, residential properties and more.
Often recommended for the commercial sector is a more permanent sealant to be applied such as a PU sealer which typically involves the application of 2-3 coats. This will protect your vinyl floor for a much longer period of time against scratches and loss of appearance. This option is aimed at the commercial sector due to extreme traffic levels. The cost is generally higher for these types of permanent sealing products, they will prevent frequent strip & seal procedures and will only require deep cleaning on a periodic basis which results in lower maintenance costs.
