1.1 How to strip & seal a floor like a professional

The benefits of applying a high quality floor sealer system to a floor are both the protection and the enhancement of what is a valuable asset.

Floors are exposed to unrelenting abrasion from foot and trolley traffic, spillages and dirt which, without protection, can cause dulling of the floor surface and even wear it away.

Once coated with a suitable sealer, the floor is protected from these threats. Furthermore, the surface becomes easy to clean with soil readily washed away, the colours of the floor are enhanced and the floor will have a higher and more even shine. By implementing a full protection system using complimentary sealers and maintenance products, this protection and enhancement will last indefinitely.

The following is a guide for stripping and sealing floors to achieve the best result. If you are looking to cut back polish without performing a full strip, please refer to the previous guide on the Agar website titled: Seven tips for extending the life of your sealed floor.

Floor Types:
