If using E-Cleaner:
Dilute to 10 ounces to a gallon, and apply using a garden (pump) sprayer. Mount a 3M 5300 Blue Cleaner pad or a comparable pad on a low speed floor scrubber / buffer. Spray enough cleaning solution to make the tiles wet enough to allow the floor scrubber to get going. Scrub floor, moving across the floor at about 1’ per second, moving back and forth to blend. Vacuum up wet residue. Wet mop with clean water using a microfiber mop. If that does not blend the floor, then go to the E-Strip.
If using E-Strip:
Conditioning is best accomplished using E-Strip. Use up to 40 ounces E-Strip to a gallon of cold water and apply the mixture to the tiles using a garden (pump) sprayer. Mount a 3M 7100 Brown or 7200 Black Cleaner pad or a comparable pad on a low speed floor scrubber / buffer. (Do not use a 3M 7300 High Productivity Black pad.) Spray enough diluted E-Strip solution to make the tiles wet enough to allow the floor scrubber to get going. E-Strip can be applied and allowed to sit for a few moments before scrubbing. This allows time for the stripper to “soften” the soil and sealer.) If E-Strip solution dries on floor, just apply more. Scrub floor, moving buffer from one side to the other until sealer is removed. Apply E-Strip solution to keep floor wet as you scrub. Vacuum up wet residue as you go. Repeat as required. Wet mop with clean, cold water using a microfiber mop. Allow to COMPLETELY dry. Applying ECOguard sealers onto an even slightly damp floor will result in a failed application. Apply one coat of the ECOguard sealer using a microfiber mop. Use foam brush for perimeter / cutting in. Additional coats are acceptable; allow each coat of ECOguard to dry thoroughly (2‐4 hours) before applying next coat, and allow ECOguard to cure for 48 hours before cleaning surface.
WEAR SAFETY GLASSES and rubber or latex gloves when mixing, pouring or applying ECOguard. Wash hands with soap and water after contact.
