FIND ANSWERS TO FLOOR FINISH FIASCOS

\"Simoniz-floor-fiascos-video\"The other day a customer called Banner Systems and was wondering why her VCT reception area floor had a hazy, powdery look. 

As we explained to her, it could be due to a few different reasons.  Perhaps the finish was applied without a sealer on a pitted floor, or the finish was applied in extremely cold temperatures.

If the coats of finish are applied too thinly, it can cause a powdery look or perhaps the recently used burnishing pad was too aggressive.

If the floor was new and the transport coating from the manufacturer was not removed properly, the finish would not have adhered properly, thus creating a powdery appearance.
