Initial Maintenance
Follow INITIAL CARE instructions within 48 hours after installation.
1. Remove dry soils (labels, gum). Sweep or microfiber dust mop floor. Place “Wet Floor” signs in area.
2. Dilute LONCARE, 2 oz. per gallon of cold tap water. Scrub with blue pad on auto scrubber or single disk machine.
3. Pick up cleaning solution with scrubber or wet vac. Replace the solution when mop water becomes dirty.
4. Using a clean microfiber mop pad, damp mop any residues with clean water. Allow floor to dry completely.
5. Apply LONPRIME in one thin coat using a clean microfiber mop pad. Application of LONPRIME as a base seal coat increases the adhesion of the floor finish to the floor.
6. Allow to dry completely before applying floor finish. Dry time is subject to temperature and humidity.
7. Apply LONFINISH or LONSATIN in a thin coat using a clean microfiber mop pad.
8. To apply a full even coat, outline the area to be finished. Fill in the outlined area using a figure eight (8) motion. Ensure perimeter and edges are completely coated.
9. Apply a minimum of 2-4 coats. Allow 30-45 minutes between coats. For highly embossed and porous products, such as Loneco, Lonfloor Galvanized and Lonfloor Vista, 4 coats of floor finish is highly recommended.

Routine/Daily Maintenance

4. When dry, if needed, burnish with ultra high speed machine and blue ice pad to high gloss. Never burnish with a soiled pad.

Periodic Scrub and Recoat (as needed)

Restorative Strip and Finish (as needed)
1. Sweep to remove gross soils. Divide work areas into small 5’ X 20’ areas.
2. Dilute 1 part LONSTRIP with 5 parts water. Apply enough stripper to ensure complete wetting.
3. Allow to stand 5-10 minutes minimum. DO NOT ALLOW SOLUTION TO DRY. Re-wet as needed.
4. Scrub floor with auto-scrubber or floor machine using a brown stripping pad to break softened film. Flip pad and replace as needed.

Long Term – Restoring Luster
METHOD 1
  • Rejuvenate the finish, with two thin coats of LONFINISH or LONSATIN, applied as detailed under Scrub and Recoat (above). Stripping the finish/dressing is rarely needed if the floor is maintained and thin coats of dressing applied as needed to refurbish the floor appearance.
  • METHOD 2
  • Once the surface is clean and completely dry, dry buff with a 5Contact Pad on a high speed Autoscrubber (1500 rpm) to enhance the luster.


  • Maintenance on Glossy UV Cured Urethane Finished Surfaces These instructions are for machine and manual maintenance methods
  • Begin maintenance 48 hours after installation is complete.
  • The floor should always be clean to minimize any slip hazard from build up of dust and tracked-in contaminants.
  • When the floor is properly clean, you will notice increased traction.
  • Initial and Daily Maintenance (for Glossy UV Cured Urethane):
    1. Install and maintain entry matting with a non-staining backing to reduce tracked-in dirt and contaminants.

    2. Sweep with a soft bristle broom or microfiber dust mop the entire area to remove dust and debris.
    3. Dilute LONCARE, 2oz. per gallon of cold tap water. Damp mop using a clean microfiber mop pad.
    4. To remove scuff marks, buff the area with a low speed machine equipped with a clean contact pad until clean and dry.
    5. Change contact pads when they get clogged. Revitalize Gloss (As Needed for Glossy UV Cured Urethane): The length of time required for interim maintenance or revitalizing varies and is dependent upon usage and traffic.
    1. Sweep with a soft bristle broom or microfiber dust mop the entire area to remove dust and debris.
    2. Spray a fine mist of LONBUFF over a small area to be cleaned (about 5 feet at a time).
    3. Immediately BUFF sprayed area with a low speed machine equipped with a clean contact pad until clean and dry.
    4. Change contact pads when they get clogged.
    5. Once the surface is clean and completely dry, DRY BUFF with a clean contact pad on a low speed machine to enhance the luster.
    Note: Do not use abrasive pads, brushes or cleaning agents.
