How to Pre-Strip Floors
Pre-Stripping a floor with Simix Multi-Surface Cleaner is easy.
A thorough strip is critical to the success of Simix. That is why we recommend you spend a few weeks Pre-Stripping before you apply Simix Ceramic Floor Coating.
Pre-stripping is easy. All you need to do is switch from your old liquid pH neutral cleaner to Simix Multi-Surface Cleaner/Degreaser/Sanitizer. You will continue to clean as you always have with a mop and a bucket or an autoscrubber.
1. Mix ¼ oz (one small scoop) of Multi-Surface Cleaner/Degreaser/Sanitizer per gallon of water in mop bucket or autoscrubber with red pads. Hot water works best.
2. Mop floors as you normally would or autoscrub floors as you normally would with a red pad.
3. These methods will slowly remove floor finish while keeping the floors clean and bright.
4. Once there is no more gloss, you are ready for final strip.
For faster removal, you can use a more aggressive pad.
