Refinishing Floors – The Jani-King Way

Office floors need to be refinished periodically, but how to go about it and where to start are the questions most building managers face. Let’s take a look at several best practices when it comes to refinishing/resurfacing floors.

To minimize the need to strip and refinish surfaces, Jani-King collaborates with vendors providing diamond coated pads. The pads are coated in a variety of grits like sandpaper. The process delivers or exceeds traditional levels of cleanliness and gloss.

The system does not require any chemicals in daily cleaning to keep the floor clean and shiny.  For floors that require floor finish, using the diamond pad system will reduce the frequency of the periodic maintenance. In addition, using diamond pads reduces the amount and management of waste and residues. Twister pads are made from recycled PET for minimum environmental impact.  By choosing Twister as our standard method for floor maintenance we actively and effectively reduce the environmental impact.

Diamond pads contain billions of microscopic diamonds that not only effectively clean but also polish the floor during daily cleaning. The difference between the various pads is the size of the diamonds—this determines whether it cleans, polishes, or performs both.  This process enables cleaners to upgrade a dirty, dull floor to a clean, shiny one.

Diamond pads can be used on all types of flooring and are available for most used floor cleaning machines. The pads can be used on the following types of floors:

    • Natural stone
    • Terrazzo
    • Luxury vinyl tile (LVT)
    • Linoleum
    • Ceramic tile
    • VCT
    • Rubber composite
    • Sealed wood floors
    • Polished concrete
    • Ceramic tile
    • Travertine

Whatever your floor type, or cleaning needs, Jani-King has you covered.
