Rich Batka, Director of Building and Grounds, Brookfield-La Grange Park School District #95 goal was to Lower Floor Care Maintenance Costs for VCT, LVT and Sheet Vinyl. Rich discovered how to lower floor care maintenance costs for VCT, LVT and Sheet Vinyl floors by using NeverStrip Gloss instead of conventional acrylic floor finish or wax.
Rich said, “With NeverStrip™ one almost need sunglasses on a sunny day because the floors are so shiny”
NeverStrip Gloss was applied to multiple classrooms and hallways during the past Summer, said Rich, as well as a large multi-purpose room with 10+ year old sheet vinyl. Rich pulled the trigger on these applications after a 6-month Pilot.
Rick has identified three core benefits of NeverStrip vs. wax:
1) Consistently Better Appearance
2) Much Enhanced Durability
3) Substantial Labor Savings
These all translate into lower floor care maintenance costs for VCT, LVT and Sheet Vinyl by using NeverStrip Gloss.
Brook Park is a 750 student, K-5th grade school. In Rich’s words “the school has the demands of a small high school”.
The Brook Part maintenance staff historically used conventional floor finish or wax with a scrub and re coat each summer; a burnish at Winter break and a total strip every three years.
Rich is looking forward to having his whole school coated with NeverStrip. He and his staff will no longer have to do annual scrub and re coats; no longer need to burnish and will Never will need to Strip again! His staff may actually be able to get other tasks done each summer other than moving furniture, stripping and waxing floors. The result will be lower floor care maintenance costs for VCT, LVT and Sheet Vinyl.
Maintenance of hallways with NeverStrip consists of an auto scrubber with a mild cleaner and red or white pad. The classrooms are mopped and felt glides are maintained on the moveable furniture.
Additional benefits provided by using NeverStrip Gloss include reduced solid waste disposal (no stripping) and reduced air pollution by lowering volatile organic compounds due to the elimination of waxing and stripping.
