Always Clean Australia use a safe fast acting floor stripper, especially effective for the removal of sealers and polishes. The stripper is applied onto the floor and sufficient time is allowed to effect penetration and softening of the seal or polish. The floor is machine rotary scrubbed with a stripping pad. The remaining residue is removed using a hot water extraction machine with a PH neutralising additive leaving the floor surface clean and ready for sealing.
When the floor is completely dry, 2 coats of sealer are applied. We use a high performance sealer finish that conforms to the Australian Standard for the slip resistance of pedestrian surface. Finally we burnish the floor to give a mirror-like finish.

Burnishing is an optional process in which a high speed rotary machine with a special pad is used to buff the surface to produce an extremely high gloss ‘wet look’ finish. This type of finish is common for commercial floor areas, whereas residential floors tend to have a normal gloss finish which does not require burnishing.
Our technician can provide further advice on how to maintain your floor and how often the floor will require stripping and resealing.
Like painting, a properly prepared surface with 2 coats gives the best result rather than simply applying coats over the old paint finish. Repeated applications of a sealer or applying heavy coats of sealer without first stripping the old sealer does not produce an optimal finish. This practice also makes the stripping process more time consuming and thus cost you more next time.
