HIP Flooring St Neots


The ongoing maintenance of a wooden floor with any coating will normally involve what we term a "scrub and seal".


During this process the floor is mechanically cleaned using a suitable scrubber drier type machine which only leaves a thin residue behind which quickly evaporates. We have 2 machines one for domestic/small areas and the other for the larger commercial halls.

The cleaning products used will depend on what the floor has been treated with in the past. For example a village hall floor that has been maintained with a polish will need to be first cleaned with a solution of a stripping agent, to breakdown the polish, then a neutralising agent to ensure a good adhesion to the top up coating.

Before the final coating (lacquer/oil/polish etc) is applied the floor is first abraded/lightly sanded to ensure optimum adhesion.
