Enough Slip Safe Tile Treatment to treat Target Areas

It will take 1 person approximately 4 Hours to do a 625k sqft. warehouse.

Target Areas

  2. Have a mop bucket with clean water available

  4. Mark an area to treat that is 4 feet by 200 feet, our goal is to spray one gallon per 400 square feet
  5. Spray Slip Safe on that targeted surface using a fan spray
  6. Cover as uniformly as possible, it will spread out when sprayed, so use up the 2 gallons on the target area, may have to go back and forth a few times
  7. Using the scrubber machine, spray water, brush and vacuum up the treatment, water neutralizes the treatment and the surface is much more slip resistant immediately, one pass will do it
  8. Empty scrubber machine and run water through system when done

Bull Pen Area Bathrooms and all Pedestrian entrances
