Floorcare answers lead to new questions


FORTH WORTH, TX — A year ago, Powr-Flite, a leading manufacturer of floor care equipment, began a monthly news advisory called the "Powr-Flite Floor Care Troubleshooter," according to a press release.

Ever since the program began the company has received a number of questions from cleaning professionals, asking for help in addressing their specific floor care challenges, the release stated.

One of the most common questions Powr-Flite receives is "How can I tell if floor finish is really dry," the release added.

Most floor finish manufacturers suggest drying times of 20-25 minutes, but this can vary due to many factors like temperature, humidity and thickness of coating applied, the release noted.

According to the release, Debby Davis, product manager for Powr-Flite, recommends using either of the following tests, in an inconspicuous location, to see if a floor is really dry:

  • Apply masking or "invisible" tape to the finish and pull it up with a quick jerk. If finish comes off with the tape you do not have good adhesion and the floor needs more drying time.    
  • Place facial tissue on the floor, step down on it, and twist the tissue over the floor. If the tissue does not tear, the floor is probably dry.
