Intensive Floor treatment or I.F.T is part of a sandless recoating system for hardwood flooring contractors use. We offer this product as it is effective at removing residue, grease, contaminants, hair spray. It is also effective in removing some DIY urethane coatings such as Bruce Fresh Finish. It is important that this product is diluted properly. Please follow the directions carefully. We also offer this product diluted in a quart spray bottle.
*Basic Coatings Intensive Floor Treatment (IFT)
*A recommended cleaner that you use on a regular basis to clean your floor.
*Scotch-Brite NO SCRATCH abrasive pad (scrub pad with sponge - NOT an SOS, brillo, or steel wool pad)
*New and well rinsed sponge mop
*Rubber/latex gloves and safety goggles (as a safety precaution recommended to prevent eye/skin irritation when handling I.F.T)
1. Spray a small amount of the Intensive Floor Treatment (I.F.T.) solution to a section of the floor and spread it with a soft cloth. Apply only enough cleaner to wet the floor.
2. Use the abrasive pad (no scratch pad) and scrub the area. This should remove the product you are intending to take off.
3. After scrubbing the area, wipe the section with a cloth dampened with water.
4. The final step is to apply the hardwood floor cleaner with a quality floor mop. No water rinse is necessary after this cleaner is applied. Wipe/Mop the floor until it is dry- Do Not Leave The Floor Wet.
**It is recommended to try a small section first (i.e. behind a door)
If you would like to put a Urethane Finish Top Dressing on your floor to renew the shine of your wood floor we recommend the Bona Pro Series Refresher for Hardwood Floors. Use it after you have removed the problem product with the IFT.
