Brush and 175 is how I’ve cleaned them. Add some stripper and get after it. The ones we did rarely have wax applications.

Especially with that being a restroom that definitely looks neglected

Rinse and be done

I have only done 5 of these types of floors . They all were sealed and waxed prior to my service call. I used orbital machine like the square scrub with a SSP pad and plenty of soap and water. These floors were at a hair salon. They moved everything including washing machines which was caked with salts etc.They all came out clean. If you don't have this type of machines then a 175 will work just be a lot slower. Bring with you a few different pads see which works best( don't kneel the machine trying to get out a spot that refuses to come off it's always best to just tell them it's a stain ) . You can always try a small hidden area see if it cleans if it doesn't then stop tell the customer it won't come clean. Everybody eventually comes across a trashed floor best to walk than be the guy buying them a new floor. Sometimes the epoxy just needs to be redone.

Slower? Dude I’ve killed it on those floors with a 175. Tbh 175 was one of my fav cleaning tools.

I can kill it with a mop bucket and a 175 if I want too. And I wouldn’t use any pads. My go to on a textured surface like that is a tile and grout brush for the 175.

A lot of times those commercial epoxies are then sealed with urethane. Super tuff and chem resistant.

Doing VCT with a 175 and stripper I averaged between 225 and 550 feet per hour depending upon if it was a double or triple strip. The square strip machine can do 2000 feet per hour.

If you are faster than my times and do a good job you are hired.

Forget vct

Epoxy or Saltillo are the only finishes like that I’ll deal with. Again pictured above is a textured floor.

And yes I make good coin on epoxy

Legarri is just a small reseller of elite Crete products relabeled.

Most of the smaller ones are. Elite Crete and a few others are the big manufacturers

I took a 3 day class at an elite Crete distribution center, was really cool. We poured all kinds of floors.

Their YouTube videos are very impressive. I have watched them for hours on end as others . It has become art The 3 d work these guys do blows your mind. If you get real good at it you can have a great business without the fears of competition.
