Frequently Asked Questions
Having good information before you begin stripping a floor is critical. What questions should I ask when choosing a stripper?
- What type of floor are you stripping? Alkaline-sensitive floors such as rubber and linoleum should not be stripped with high pH, alkaline strippers.
- What type of environment are you working in? Will people other than the floor crew be present? Hospital and nursing homes may need to be stripped with a low odor product like Xlerate™ (#2917).
- How many coats of finish will you be removing? When was the floor last stripped? Was a semi-permanent seal used? Answers to these questions will steer you toward a particular product and give you an idea as to the amount of time the job will require.
- What type of equipment do I have at my disposal? A heavy swing machine or large auto-scrubber will make fast work of most strip-outs.
