Can I strip floors with urethane finish?
Urethane is strippable if necessary. However, when the product reaches the end of its life cycle, it can be abraded and recoated without stripping. ServiceMaster Clean has products and procedures designed specifically for this purpose.
How often do I buff?
Urethane is NEVER buffed. Buffing may actually diminish the gloss of the finish.
Is urethane slippery when wet?
Any coated surface can be slippery when wet. Our urethane product is considered to have acceptable slip resistance according to the American National Standards Institute (ANSI)/National Floor Safety Institute (NFSI) B101.3-2012 test method for measuring wet dynamic coefficient of friction (DCOF) of common hard-surface floor materials. We offer optional additives to create high slip resistance (lower probability of slipping) for wet environments or areas of concern.
How long will urethane floors last?
Wear of any finish depends greatly on traffic, use and cleaning practices; an average lifespan is two years.
Does urethane have a span odor during the application?
Urethane finish contains no VOCs or solvents, which are often the source of harmful fumes. It has a very light, almost unnoticeable, clean scent.
