Over time, due to constant traffic, the sealant wears thin, and the floored area needs to be resurfaced.
The process of strip and sealing is the removing of the old sealer and applying new coats of sealer to the floor in several layers.
The purpose of the sealer is to safeguard the floor against scratches. We use safe, superior quality and fast-acting floor stripping solutions that are specifically designed for the removal of floor polishes and sealers from vinyl and terrazzo floors.

Vinyl floor cleaning in Orange, Bathurst and the Central West is very popular for commercial customers and starting to be very popular for our residential customers as well. One of the most common problems in vinyl is that it gets worn down. McArdles Cleaning & Restoration in Orange & Bathurst recommends customers to get their Vinyl floors sealed. Sealing your vinyl is like protection, if you have your vinyl protected you are wearing down the sealer not the vinyl. Sealing also protects it from chemicals, dirt and also scratches.
Vinyl Sealing doesn’t last forever, you have to maintain the sealer every 6 – 12months. Your vinyl might only need to be cleaned not resealed, so it is good to have an inspection on your vinyl from a professional cleaner.
The reason why you need to have your sealer maintained is that chemicals and dirt are vinyls biggest enemies. They can get into the grain of vinyl and if they do get into the grain of the vinyl you would have to get it completely strippedand sealed or worse case scenario you have to get the vinyl replaced.
Our Vinyl Cleaning & Sealing Process
Allow our technicians to adequately assess the condition and tile type before performing any cleaning. This will ensure the most accurate and efficient method and chemicals are used. Our technicians will make a note of all challenging areas and set your expectations as well as come up with a solution for each area.
- Area Preparation
Please speak to our team upon booking about your desired plan for the cleaning process. Furniture will be shifted as required. We will tape up any areas that will be affected by the sealer
- Dry Soil Removal
Our technicians thoroughly sweep and vacuum the entire area, maximising the results we obtain. As in any cleaning process, dry soil removal is the most important.
- Stripping the floor
The stripper solution is applied onto the floor allowing sufficient time to soften the seal or polish. Once complete the stripper is extracted with an extraction machine. Note: if the vinyl is in horrible shape you may require our heavy-duty service option.
The floor is scrubbed to remove the old layer(s) of sealer using a slow speed polisher and stripping pad.
- Cleaning, Neutralising and Drying
The surface is then cleaned, “neutralised” (with a solution containing a PH neutralising additive) and dried with centrifugal air movers.
A high-quality sealer is applied in layers (minimum three layers) We recommend eight layers of sealer as this will last much longer before having to reseal the floor.
We often hear from new customers, “We only got our vinyl sealed 3 months ago and it looks exactly the same”. This can happen because of using improper cleaning products, poor cleaning process, or lack of sealer left as mentioned above.
