Floor Polishing Tips

Provide a protective floor surface which improves the floor's appearance.

Equipment & Supplies
i.    Double wringers buckets
ii.   Plastic liners
iii.  "Work in progress" safety floor signs
iv.  Kentucky Mop* - the mop used in this procedure should beclean and onl y used for floor polishing.
v.   Floor polish
vi.  Floor machine (optional)
vii. Fresh water

Steps
i.   Prepare to polish floor area:
    -  Strip the floor properly with Excel Strip and allow it to dry.
    -  Make sure the floor is clean and without any foreign material.
    -  Move supplies and equipment into the working area
    -  Place "Working in progress" safety floor signs at the entrances to area.
    -  Fill one bucket 3/4 full with fresh water.
    -  Put plastic liner into empty bucket before pouring in the polish,  then pour the polish into plastic    
       lined bucket. The plastic liner keeps the bucket clean and keeps the polish (wax) from becoming
        contaminated with residue that might be in the bucket.

ii.   Dip clean mop head into fresh water and wring out well. 

iii.   Dip the damp mop head into the floor polish (wax) and wring out so that the mop head does not    
       drip.

iv.   Starting at the farthest corner from the door, apply a thin coat of finish on the floor next to the
      baseboard on each side of the corner. Apply 6' to 9' at a time. (Note: Turn the mop head often and
      re-dip in polish before the mop head becomes dried out and streaks the floor.)

v.    Using a side to side movement, apply the polish onto the floor area and overlap the strokes of the
       mop head. Avoid splashing. Apply the polish evenly and cover all areas.

vi.   Allow floor to dry 20 - 30 minutes or until floor does not feel tacky to the touch.

vii.  If needed, apply more coats of polish as before except stay 6" to 12" away from the baseboards.
      This area gets little or no wear since people cannot walk that close to the baseboard. Multiple coats
      of polish at the base boards build up too much.

viii.  Allow second coat to dry completely.

ix.   If buffing is desired between coats to level the polish and to increase the gloss, be sure:
      - That the polish (wax) used is buffable
      - Use the white/ tan color floor pad on the UHS machine.

x.   Remove "Working in progress" floor signs after the  floor is dry.

xi.  Clean mop head and buckets.

Carpet Cleaning Tips

Carpet Extraction :

Shooting water into the carpet and vacuuming the water out with the soil. For best results, pre-spray carpet with a proper solution and agitate it with a carpet rake or brush before extracting. Let the pre-spray soak and have an opportunity to loosen the soil. Extracting places a fairly large amount of water on the carpet but if feces or urine are present flushing is the only alternative.

 

Carpet Shampooing :

Scrub the carpet with a foaming carpet shampoo (Carpeto). The foam suspends the water and prevents over soaking the carpet thus allowing the solution to break down the heavy soils. For light soil, first pre-spray then agitate slightly. Medium soil use the same process as above but use a stronger pre-spray (stronger dilution is necessary). Let it sit longer and use a more aggressive agitation with a scrubbing machine (Carpet Extractor). Heavy soil may require more than one cleaning. Use a shampoo that crystallizes upon drying. This allows you to remove encapsulated soil and soap residue from carpet which prevents resoiling.
