Terrazzo Floor Care Training

Richard from First Baptist Church of Winter Park, FL attended a floor care class earlier this year.  Last night, the crew was challenged with their first real test and the Academy was there to walk them through the steps on  how to top strip and refinish their 5,000 sq. ft. of terrazzo floor.  

A 14″x 20″ oscillating scrubber with red cushion pad, a Maroon floor pad and water was used to top strip.  The removed finish was picked up with an auto-scrubber, red pad and water.  Several passes were made to rinse the floor.  A microfiber flat mop was used to detail the edges and the terrazzo was ready for finish.

Two coats of Z-495 were applied.  Richard & crew did a bang up job for their first time.  Even laying finish didn’t seem to slow them down.  After a few days, they will certainly be ACE Experts.

Both men walked out with their new certificates and smiles on their faces with answers to questions they didn’t even know they were going to ask.
