  • Directions

    Wet Screening / Deep Cleaning prior to Recoating: Wet screening and deep cleaning can only be done on floors that are properly sealed and coated with a water-based wood floor finish.


    1. In a mop bucket / wringer, mix PIVOT™ Intensive Wood Prep Cleaner at 32 ounces concentrate per gallon of cool water (1:4 dilution ratio). 
    2. Using a clean wet mop, apply PIVOT™ cleaning solution onto the sealed and finished wood floor surface. Do not flood the surface, only get it wet enough to allow the screening to occur without creating dust or drying before it can be vacuumed up. 
    3. Using a 175 rpm rotary buffer and a choice of Maroon Pad, Brown Pads, Black Stripping pads, or 120-150 grit sanding screen, abrade the surface quickly and thoroughly. Going with the grain of the wood, use overlapping paths to ensure a complete and uniform screening process. 
    4. Immediately pick up the solution along with the screened material using a wet-vacuum or automatic scrubber. 
    5. Rinse the floor thoroughly and allow the floor to dry. Use dry towels to remove any standing water or puddles. 
    6. Tack the floor surface using FAST BREAK™ Routine Wood Cleaner following the Routine Cleaning / Tacking instructions on the FAST BREAK™ product label. 
    7. Allow the floor surface to dry before walking on it. 
    8. Recoat with ENDURA™ Ultra Premium Water-Based Urethane Wood Finish.
