Clean floors

Nothing makes a cleaning professional more proud than creating a clean environment and now there’s a way to remove floor finishes in a more environmentally-friendly way without compromising results.

Professional cleaners can effectively remove the floor finish on vinyl tile, marble, terrazzo, concrete and other floor types with 3M™ Scotch-Brite™ Surface Preparation Pads (SPP) which only need neutral cleaners or water.

Achieving excellent cleaning results without the use of hazardous floor stripping chemicals not only improves productivity, it also reduces labour and material costs.
