Hard floor cleaners, finishers, and strippers prepare, protect, and restore floors to enhance appearance and guard against damage. They are commonly used to maintain floors in commercial and industrial facilities, such as airports, restaurants, medical offices, and manufacturing plants. Floor cleaners and maintainers remove stains and degrease floors without dulling the gloss. Finishers and sealers add a protective layer that resists scratches and scuffs and leaves a high-luster appearance. Floor strippers remove buildup of old sealers, waxes, and finishes to prepare surfaces for resealing and refinishing. Floor sweeping compounds remove dust and dirt before applying floor cleaning products while floor coverings temporarily protect carpet and flooring from cleaning chemicals.
