Non-Slip Surface Treatment for Floors, Tub and Shower – FAQ’s
How long will the treatment last?
We guarantee an increased coefficient of friction for 1-2 years in commercial applications and 3-5 years in residential applications, depending upon the traffic pattern and maintenance practices.
Do I have to use a special cleaner once the surface has been treated?
No. However, restaurants must use a degreaser to clean their floor. Otherwise, grease will build up over time, causing the floor to be slippery. In that instance, you would be walking on layers of grease rather than the treated floor.
How long will it take to apply the non-slip treatment?
Treatment application time varies depending on the size of the area(s) being treated. Treatment times can be from 45 minutes or longer if the area is larger.
Will there be an visible changes to the appearance of the floor, tub, shower surface?
There is no visible change in appearance. On a very high gloss ceramic tile or marble floor, you may notice a very slight loss of gloss. We always do a small, inconspicuous test treat area, prior to treating the entire surface, to ensure optimal outcomes.
Will there be any reaction to the skin when treatment is applied to bathtubs?
No, as there is no chemical remaining in the bathtub. This is not a coating or a sealer. Once the treatment product has been applied, it is neutralized. What remains is a quality non-slip surface.
Will bathtubs/showers be harder to clean following treatment?
No, it will be the same. In the case where strips or mats were used, the cleaning will be easier after a non-slip treatment.
Do I have to use a special cleaner after my floor, tub or shower is treated?
No. Whatever you used before your treatment, continue use afterward.
