How to clean a resin industrial floor | Blog | Remedial Building Services | Remedial Building Services

Does your business site have a resin floor and you [...]

HOW TO CLEAN YOUR RESIN FLOOR PROPERLY

  
Resin floors are widely regarded as a long-lasting flooring system – a primary reason it is favoured in numerous applications including industrial and commercial flooring industries. But like all things, if not regularly and properly maintained, its performance diminishes, it can become unsuitable for the reasons it was implemented and in food preparation areas, it can become unhygienic due to bacteria, build-up of foods/chemicals/detergents, making it a hazardous surface for people to move around in.
So that your resin floor remains in-line with occupational health and safety requirements imposed by Australian standards, it is best to employ an appropriate cleaning regimen. The manufacturers (and less often installers) of resin flooring usually have their own guidelines, from frequency of cleaning to the use of the right products. But having guidelines and following them are two different things, so we thought it prevalent to share some top-level tips on how to keep your floor clean with the right methods as well as recommended tools and cleaning agents.

Recommended Resin Cleaning Methods

There are two common yet highly effective methods used to properly clean epoxy resin flooring and other similar surfaces. The first one is called manual scrubbing, which involves 1) sweeping of the floor to remove accumulated dirt and loose debris; 2) diluting the appropriate cleaning agent (i.e. detergent, see next section) 3) manual scrubbing (by hand) using a brush or a pad; 4) rinsing of the floor with water; 5) draining dirty water and drying of the surface with a squeegee.
The second method requires the use of a steam cleaner or a pressure washer. This procedure is basically the same as the mechanical method but instead of using a brush to clean the floor after the application of a cleaning agent, you use a steam cleaner after steps 1 and 2 are complete. You have to take note, however, that using a pressure washer or a steam cleaner requires proper training and cautious usage as the equipment is powerful and can cause damage to the floor or the operator if handled improperly.

Resin-Friendly Cleaning Products

An integral part in resin maintenance is the usage of a cleaning agent for effective cleaning and maintenance. But what are the common products which you should consider using on your resin floors? Check out the list.
  • Commercial Detergent – perfect for general and simple flooring cleaning. Diluted with water, it creates foam easily, which in turn, helps in loosening dirt and impurities stuck on the floor. A detergent is also good in trapping the dirt in the solution, making it easy for you to contain the filth and remove them effectively with a subsequent water rinse.
    • Failure to remove the detergent properly however, can make the floor slippery, so it is essential that rinsing is done thoroughly.
  • Deodoriser – designed to get rid of odour and bacteria from the floor. This cleaning agent is works best for sterilisation and disinfection purposes, and is therefore perfect for use in food service areas, hospitals, and the other similar spaces.
  • Degreasers and emulsifier – used in removing oils, greases, and other water-insoluble substances. They usually contain hydrocarbon solvents, which facilitate oils and the like to effortlessly mix with water, thus easily eradicating residues which are both slippery and harmful to the floor, without hassle. 
Always keep in mind that manufacturers and installers have recommended products for you to use. Where in doubt, ask them before using a product on your floor as, if you want to prolong the life of your resin floors, their advice will be invaluable. This will not only make your flooring long-lasting but by following the manufacturer’s instructions, you will not void their warranty program.

General Tips

  • Always conduct a spot test in a non-prominent area when using a new cleaning agent.
  • Always dilute the cleaning agent in the recommended quantities before applying it the floor.
  • Immediately wipe off spilled liquid with a mop and a bucket in order to keep your floor in good condition as well as to prevent accidents in the area.
  • Never mix cleaning chemicals and agents as this can be harmful both to human beings and to the floor. 
  • Do not flood the floor when cleaning it with water. Excessive water can damage it.
  • High-traffic areas should be cleaned more than other spaces in your premises.
  • To maintain the antistatic qualities of your flooring, make sure to conduct routine test methods, with recommendations from your installer or manufacturer.
  • Always consult with the professionals to identify the right kind of cleaning equipment and process to utilise for your flooring.
Resin floors are indeed a great investment for your industrial or commercial flooring needs. But no matter how durable they are, remember they are not impervious to wear and tear. If you don’t take care of your floors and do not adhere to a simple cleaning regime, it is inevitable that some damage will eventually be done to them.
But we hope, that iy keeping all these tips in mind, especially when it comes to using the right cleaning agents and tools, your flooring will retain its original condition. If you have any doubts, or think you may have damaged your floor already, why not get me or one of our team on site to have a chat? Get in touch with us today!

Wharf Street, Gosford | Remedial Building Services

This multi-tiered waterfront property located in G [...]

WHARF STREET, GOSFORD

This multi-tiered waterfront property located in Gosford NSW was suffering extensive structural damage caused by consistent water ingress. Upon early inspection, engineers found that the property had been poorly constructed, allowing water to penetrate through the external balconies into living areas in the apartments below.

The scope of the work requested by the engineers included:

  • Removal and replacement of windows and rectification of faulty workmanship
  • Removal and replacement of faulty roofing membrane
  • Replacement of cavity flashings
  • Tiling
  • Installation of expansion joints
  • Installation of concrete hobs in accordance with the Building Code of Australia
  • Installation of new balustrading
  • Painting of all external render

The Rectification Process

Remedial commenced the project in early 2015 after tendering a methodology for undertaking the project. Before beginning the works, Remedial erected scaffolding at the rear of the property to minimise the impact on residents.

The first stage of the project involved the removal of the old balustrades, balcony tiles and membranes. Once this was completed, the team began the removal of the apartment windows and glass door assemblies, before installing a torch-on waterproofing membrane system. A flashing was then placed in the appropriate position before reinstalling the door and windows. This procedure was performed on each apartment one-by-one, in order to reduce the impact on residents by ensuring that each home was exposed to the elements for the minimum possible time.

During the next stages of the project, cavity flashings were installed, a torch-on membrane was applied to the surface of each balcony and screeds were applied where necessary. Once this was complete,the legs for the new glass and aluminium balustrades were positioned, new tiles were installedand a suitable expansion jointing system was applied to allow adequate movement of the joints.

The final stage of the project involved the coating of various elements and the installation of the balustrade frames and glass. After the completion of all rectification works, the building was commercially cleaned prior to the final inspection by the engineers. As soon as the completion certificate was issued, the scaffolding was removed.

Environmental Management

At Remedial, the protection of the natural environment is always an important consideration. Accredited to Australian Environmental Standards, you can rest assured that for every project Remedial undertake, there is an appropriate environmental program in place to ensure the safety of the natural environment.

For the Wharf Street rectification project, the measures taken included but were not limited to:

  • Runoff socks
  • Protective sheeting during water blasting
  • On-site chemical containment
  • Removal, storage and re-introduction of plants which would have otherwise been affected by foot traffic or scaffolding.

Department of Education Building - A case study on heritage works and waterproofing | Remedial Building Services

The Heritage Listed Department of Education Buildi [...]

THE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION BUILDING, SYDNEY

The Department of Education Building located in Sydney’s CDB, was designed by the acclaimed architect George McRae, the esteemed architect was also responsible for the design of Sydney’s famous Queen Victoria Building on George Street.

Constructed in 1914, the building is characterised by Edwardian Baroque design elements which are rarely found in Australian architecture. Almost a century after the building’s construction, Remedial Building Services were engaged to perform restoration works to this beautiful building for the purposes of ensuring that water damage and ingress could be prevented into the future. 
All told, the work we were brought on to address included:

  • Removal of bonded asbestos sheeting from the roofing. This was not only a hazardous product, but it was failing causing water to seep into the building. 
  • Removal of concrete which had begun to pull away from the concrete slab
  • Correction of falls to the concrete slab
  • Application of a torch-on membrane waterproofing system
  • Removal of copper flashings
  • Reinstallation of flashings to prevent water ingress
  • Removal of window beading and replacement of appropriate solution

The Rectification Process

Rectification on this extensive project began on the rooftop of the building, where qualified asbestos removal staff began the process of isolating the area to be worked on, encapsulating it and then removing the faulty membrane containing bonded asbestos.
During this stage of the rectification, Remedial worked with building management to implement extensive measures to protect employees and the general public from any exposure to asbestos particles. Once all asbestos affected materials had been safely disposed of, the Remedial team installed a new torch-on membrane to the roof and parapet in order to prevent the ingress of water into the building.

After the roof was completed, specialist staff with extensive heritage rectification experience repaired and replaced all copper flashings and window beading.

This rectification project was completed over a 16 month period to the satisfaction of the building management, with minimal if any impact on the occupants of the building. The high quality work provided by Remedial enhanced the waterproofing and structural integrity of the building while maintaining all the requirements of a heritage listed building.
These works will allow the building to remain structurally sound and visually spectacular for many years to come.

WARATAH AVENUE, RANDWICK

Randwick has a rich cultural history, from being the home to the largest Aboriginal community in Sydney at one point, to being a hub of prosperity and architectural significance with significant houses constructed such as Ventnor overlooking Coogee Beach.. 
It is no surprise then, that Randwick counts several red brick buildings which are well known for their architectural signficance. 
On the corner of Waratah Ave and Belmore Road, is such an example. With arched windows and detailed brick fascias there is a strong neo-gothic architectural style to this bulding which makes it very memorable. Having withstood the elements, human impacts and polution for a number of decades, the building had come into a state of ill-repair when Remedial Building Services were contacted to help restore it to its former beauty. 

THE SCOPE OF REMEDIAL WORKS

With the scope of works defined by Alan Wright engineers, the Remedial team got to work on restoring the structural and aesthetic elements of the building. Over a 9 month period we:

  • Replaced and installed new heleties
  • Removed all windows and replaced them with windows which were in keeping with the facaded, yet which offered superior noise and thermal protection
  • Painted
  • Sourced like-for-like bricks and re-layed large sections of the brickwork which had delaminated or become unsound
  • Repointed the entire building
  • Installed new cappings
  • Put in place new ties to the awnings to improve the structural strength
Through continual communication with the Body Corporate and the residents, work was completed with minimal disruption for residents. Residents were given multiple options for times which would suit for window replacement so that they could plan their lives around it with minimal impact on their day-to-day.

Mobile GPS Tracking: A Cost-effective Alternative to GPS Tracking Hardware

In recent times, Mobile GPS tracking has gained im [...]

A poorly performing fleet is a massive challenge for any business; mainly if it’s a part of the logistics and transportation industry because logistics isn’t just a business function that they have to manage, it’is their whole and sole business! Being in the transportation industry isn’t a child’s play, after all. You have to maintain a large fleet of vehicles, which is a reason for a mild headache even at the best of times.

If you don’t know the precise location of every vehicle in your fleet, your business will have to depend on a lot of guesswork. That, as all fleet managers would agree, is a situation best avoided!

GPS tracking of vehicles, however, could help logistics and transportation businesses overcome most issues that arise in fleet management. It is a surefire method to control and monitor your fleet and analyze its activities at the same time. However, there are a couple of different GPS tracking solutions at the disposal of a modern fleet manager; a robust hardware-based GPS tracking unit and a more sophisticated and technologically superior smartphone-based fleet tracking system.

In recent times, Mobile GPS tracking has gained immense popularity among fleet managers who have a perennial need of keeping an eye on their fleet vehicles as well as their drivers. The question is – why would fleet managers opt for a mobile GPS tracking system over conventional tracking systems? Mobile GPS tracking won’t need additional hardware, resulting in an inexpensive solution comparatively. What benefits do a tablet and smartphone-based fleet tracking app bring to fleet managers? Read on to find out!


How Does a Mobile GPS Tracking Solution Work?

Even though a fleet management app based on mobile GPS tracking may involve a lot of technological complexities on the app construction and development front, the way it works is quite easy to comprehend even for a layperson. Let us take the example of TrackRobo, an accessible and easy-to-use mobile GPS tracking solution, and understand how it works in 3 simple steps.

  • Firstly, the drivers need to install the TrackRobo app on their mobile device and then enable real-time tracking.

  • Once they have done that, the app takes care of the rest. It automatically tracks the routes as well as the live locations of your drivers.

  • A central dashboard enables the admins to keep a tab on each driver and vehicle through a live, interactive map.

Yes, it is as simple as that! The app does everything for you.

Balcony Repair | Remedial Building Services

Whether it is undertaken in isolation or part of a [...]

THE IMPORTANCE OF BALCONY REPAIR

Whether it is undertaken in isolation or part of a larger project, balcony repairs may range from a relatively simple retiling, to a more complex waterproofing project designed to rectify a leaking balcony.

Leaking balconies are both relatively common and extremely serious because of their potential to cause substrate damage and water ingress into the interior of the property. Additionally, leaking balconies can represent an extreme liability due to the safety risk they pose to tenants. Some of the risks of leaving a leaking balcony untreated include:

  • Water penetration of the surrounding external walls
  • Visible water penetration in dwellings below or adjacent to the balcony
  • Damage to electrical systems causing power outages or dangerous charges
  • A rare, yet highly dangerous balcony collapse

Remedial staff are experienced in identifying the origin of all leaks, implementing the latest waterproofing technologies,and finally restoring the balcony to a safe and presentable condition. If your balcony contains planter boxes, we also offer specialised planter box replacement services to deliver a holistic solution for your balcony.

Waterproofing Services | Remedial Building Services

Water ingress and ponding can cause structural iss [...]

As often as not, the obvious signs of concrete cancer, and other structural issues are the tip of the iceberg. What we often find upon investigation is that the issues are all too often caused by water ingress into the concrete slab where it reacts with the reinforcing steel.

Once the steel can be treated or removed and replaced, the slab needs to be protected to prevent the issue occurring again. This is where correct waterproofing technique is of paramount importance.

With extensive experience across residential, commercial and industrial properties, we are often regarded as one of the most knowledgeable and professional companies in the waterproofing field.

WATERPROOFING METHODOLOGY

Having identified the original issues, we will take the time to ensure they do not occur again. We will undertake extensive substrate investigation, analysis of flashings and other elements around the slab to determine what measures to take and the most effective and viable waterproofing system for the particular job at hand.

The waterproofing systems we offer include:

  • Liquid membranes
  • Torch on membranes
  • Loose layered sheet membranes
  • Hypalon bandages
  • Tanking membranes
  • "Negative waterproofing" through injection
  • Applied chemical solutions
  • Polyurethane sealants

No job is too demanding, nor too large. We have applied our water proof membranes to a number of large and complex jobs around Australia including the Department of Education Building and Reserve Bank of Australia.
