Initial (Post-Installation) Procedures for StaticWorx Solid ESD Vinyl Tile (AmeriWorx)

NECESSARY TOOLS AND MATERIALS

  • Single disc low-speed commercial floor buffer –must operate <375 rpm
  • Buffing pads: gray (for new/lightly soiled tile), maroon (for existing/heavily soiled tile), and natural (for spray buff application).
  • Standard dry mop, dedicated mop (microfiber ideal)
  • Single mop bucket with wringer, double-sided mop bucket with wringer
  • StaticWorx-approved cleaning and buffing chemicals

Instructions

  1. Allow the floor a minimum of 72 hours for the adhesive to cure adequately before performing any maintenance procedures.
  2. Sweep and damp mop the floor to remove all loose dirt/grime (never use an oil treated mop).
  3. Dilute StaticWorx EcoScrub Floor Degreaser (1 part degreaser : 10 parts water) with cool water and apply to the floor using a dedicated mop (microfiber is ideal). Apply liberally so the floor remains wet, but do not flood the floor. Allow the solution to sit for 4-5 minutes before moving on.
  4. Scrub the floor at <375 rpm using a rotary swing buffer machine in conjunction with a gray StaticWorx Initial Scrub Pad. Be sure to buff at least 5-6 passes per row of tile at a slow to moderate speed to unify the surface. Additional passes may be necessary, depending on the speed of each pass or on site conditions. To enhance cleaning, place a floater pad (such as a standard red or white pad) underneath the Initial Scrub Pad before beginning the buffing process.
  5. Remove the degreasing agent from the floor using a wet vacuum, auto scrubber, or a microfiber mop and a bucket. Rinse the floor with clean water and a clean wet mop to remove any remaining degreasing agent. Allow the floor to dry completely before moving on.
  6. The floor should appear as a uniform matte surface. Areas with excess variation in gloss should be re-addressed with the initial scrubbing procedure before proceeding. Lightly mist StaticWorx Formula 20.20 onto the floor (spray on application) and buff it in at <375 rpm using a Staticworx Natural Hair Pad. Work the solution in evenly with one initial pass of the buffer per row of tile to create a level surface. To avoid spotting, be sure to buff in any stray drips. As in step 4, buff 5-6 passes per row of tile to ensure a proper finish. Buff the solution until the floor is dry to the touch.
  7. If desired, repeat step 6 once to optimize the finished appearance.

Note: Ongoing maintenance requirements will vary depending on the desired final gloss as well as various environmental conditions.
