"Vinyl flooring can look dull and lifeless over time, making it look older and impacting negatively on the visual presentation of your premises. By stripping and resealing, you can bring the vinyl back up to a rich and lustrous appearance extending the life of your existing flooring and deferring the substantial cost of laying new vinyl."
Stripping and resealing vinyl is the process of stripping old sealer from vinyl flooring and then resealing it, usually with three coats of new sealer. It is vital that a professional is engaged as achieving the desired result is dependent on adhering to the various processes meticulously. The processes involved include stripping the floor to ensure that the old sealer is completely removed. The floor is then cleaned thoroughly and neutralised to ensure that it is free of dust, residue and anything else that can affect the application of new sealer. The new sealer is then applied to the dry floor and allowed to dry. Additional coats are then added in turn and allowed to completely dry before buffing to achieve the rich lustre and shine that will bring your vinyl back to life.
The newly sealed floor not only looks new again, it also protects the vinyl surface for longer as well as making it much easier to clean. Similar process can be applied to various surfaces including terrazzo, tiles and concrete. However not all resilient flooring is designed to undergo the strip and seal process. Whilst products such as Tarkett and linoleum can have a similar appearance to vinyl, they are in fact entirely different products and are not intended to be maintained through stripping and resealing. Unfortunately a great deal of money has been unnecessarily spent on applying this process to surfaces that were never designed for strip & seal.
