Vinyl Strip And Seal
What is Vinyl Flooring
Vinyl flooring is a synthetic flooring option, based on polyvinyl chloride known as PVC. The resilience of linoleum, is used in various settings from homes to offices to shopping malls. There are two main types of vinyl flooring, printed vinyl and inlaid vinyl. Inlaid vinyl is more durable but comes at a higher price. Vinyl floor is a great option for many reasons ranging from its low costs to moisture resistance.
Why Vinyl Strip and Seal
This is a method used to maintain the vinyl flooring in your home or office environment. This process involves the removal of the old dull and damaged sealer from the floor surface. After removing the old sealer a new application of sealant is applied to create the “Glass Like” effect.

Setting a safety perimeter is part of the OH&S procedure. Caution signs and tape and other items in order to keep people away from your working area. Tape is placed on the carpet and other type of flooring that adjoins different working areas are not affected. This way the stripping solution and other chemicals don’t damage adjoining floor areas.
The procedure is to neutralise the vinyl floor and to mop it with sealant solution this takes at least 3 or more coats to build up a perfect shine. With the combination of attention to detail and the best equipment and best chemicals, we can guarantee this procedure is conducted perfectly.
We allow at least eight to ten hours hardening time before the floor is used. In the event that the polish is too ‘soft’, then any scratches or scuff marks will become permanent when the polish hardens.
