Friday's Ask the Experts: Finding the best products

September 4, 2009
Friday''s Ask the Experts question from a cleaning professional on the International Custodial Advisors Network (ICAN) "Ask the Experts" page: What other floor finishing products are better than the other leading brands, and where can I get the best finish that is not to expensive?
The answer:
Floor finishes come in a variety of formulations. They vary in solids content and ingredients to meet differing uses in the field. Consequently, there is no answer to the question of which one is "better."
Go to your local JanSan supplier and tell them your requirements. Do you wish to scrub and recoat for maintenance or are you intending to burnish often? Do you have a high-speed buffer or are you using a 175-RPM with spray buffing?
No matter what finish you choose, I recommend ...Lynn E. Krafft, ICAN/ATEX editor, lekrafft@juno.com.
