Stripping Floor without Machinery

Machineless stripping is designed for floors and areas inaccessible to floor machine equipment. A heavier reliance on the stripping solution is needed since agitation from the machine is not available.


  1. Sweep and dust mop floor.
  2. Using a putty knife or chewing gum removing solution, remove gum and sticky substances from floor.
  3. Prepare stripper solution per label directions in mop wringer/bucket set.
  4. Prepare a neutralizing solution in a second mop wringer and bucket set.
  5. Place wet floor signs around the perimeter of the room.
  6. Using a cotton mop generously apply stripper solution to a 10' x 10' floor area using care to not splash any on the walls.
  7. Let solution dwell for label recommended amount of time (usually about 3-5 minutes).
  8. Wet vacuum stripper and slurry solution from floor.
  9. Using a separate mop and the neutralizing solution, rinse floor, including cleaning baseboards, with the final rinse.

Warning: Always test material for colorfastness, follow label directions, and never mix product unless specified in the label directions. Each situation reacts differently and results may vary.
