Cleaning Methods Using Twister Pads
Program: TWISTER Standard
A three step process that is performed during the standard cleaning routine. For optimal results each Twister step normally requires 2-3 weeks of operating with neutral floor cleaners, depending on the condition of the floor when you start the process. No extra time or human effort is required for the Twister Standard method. Use Twister White during daily maintenance until a clean and uniform surface appears. Change to Twister Yellow and increase the luster, now the brilliance of the floor appears. Continue the process with Twister Green and the result will be an incomparably shiny and clean floor. For daily maintenance use Twister Green to maintain the floor’s shine and splendor.
Program: TWISTER Intensive
Exactly the same process as Twister Standard, although with each step being run through for 6-10 consecutive passes. The Twister Intensive method is performed outside the standard cleaning routine. Twister Intensive has the advantage of immediately upgrading the floor. Depending on the machine efficiency and the initial wear on the floor, large areas can be finished in one working day. On stone floors use Neutral Stone Cleaner during the upgrade phase.
Program: TWISTER Extreme
This is the ultimate method for creating extreme shine and luster. The floor is polished with a high-speed machine and Twister Green pad. All types of high-speed machines can be used.
Notes: According to the manufacturer, the claimed life of the pad are 250,000 sq. feet per pad.
Expected pad life
When using a standard speed floor machine or automatic floor scrubber the life of a floor pad is between 200,000 - 250,000 square feet per pad. If using the Twister pad with a high speed burnisher (1500 -2000 rpm) the expected life of the pad is between 50,000 - 75,000 square feet per pad.
