The floor maintenance technicians will arrive on time at your property, fully equipped with a high-tech machinery and the right solutions for your floorings.

Floor Sealing Requires Expertise - Count on the Melbourne Specialists

People sometimes attempt to apply a new sealant to their floors themselves and often make an error of judgment in the process. This could be either that they skip the important step of stripping the floor surface of the old sealer, first, which results in a poor finish and milky appearance. Or they might simply use the wrong protective solution, which fails to make a strong contact with the surface. The sealant soon becomes ineffective, as it may weaken with the slow formation of cracks over time. With the Fantastic experts, you can expect:

  1. The technicians inspect the floor and determine the best protection, based on the material it is made of.
  2. A stripping solution is applied, which helps remove the old sealer.
  3. The floor is stripped with a special equipment, which removes the top protective layer.
  4. Then, a neutralising solution is applied.
  5. The floor is rinsed and left to dry for a little while.
  6. The surface is treated with a suitable sealant in several coats. After each coat, the specialists wait for about 30 minutes for the floor to dry.

The same process, excluding the stripping part, applies for new floorings that have never been treated with a protective solution.

Why Apply a Sealant on Your Tiled or Vinyl Floor

Not every type of floor requires an additional protection. Fire-glazed tiles, such as porcelain, usually do not need to be sealed. Porous surfaces, however, such as natural stone tiles, are prone to get stained easily if they have not been treated with a sealer. Commercial high-traffic vinyl floorings can also benefit from being additionally protected, where a solvent-based penetrating sealant is usually applied.

Depending on the type of floor you have and the type of sealant (water-based/solvent-based), which has been applied, the following effects may be achieved:

  • The surface becomes scratch-resistant
  • The protective solution acts as a stain repellent
  • An anti-slippery effect is achieved after the treatment
  • The floor surface changes its appearance - gloss/matte finish
  • The flooring requires less maintenance
  • It becomes more durable

Please, note that buffing is also available, upon request, for already sealed/varnished hard floors (hardwood, tiles, vinyl, etc.).
