  • Q: How effective is it?

  • According to Underwriters Laboratory (UL) and the American Society of Testing and Materials (ASTM),“A static anti-slip coefficient of .5 or above is considered a safe walkway surface.” A Safe Solution® treated surface is 0.6 – 0.8+.

  • Q: Will Safe Solution® damage my floor?

  • Safe Solution® may cause a temporary whitening or efflorescence that will disappear in a short amount of time. A slight dulling effect can sometimes be seen, but a test area is always done prior to application to determine any effect it might have on the surface.

  • Q: Is it a permanent process?

  • Experience tells us that routine daily cleaning does not stop the eventual buildup of film and residue left over from cleaning products used. When this occurs traction will be diminished and your floor will require rejuvenating. Once this occurs, the floors will not be operating at maximum effectiveness and traction will be diminished. Most commercial applications average 1-3 years between rejuvenations.

  • Q: This sounds expensive and I have a limited budget….

  • When you consider a single slip-fall claim costs an average insurance premium payer a $5,000 deductible, and that a Safe Solution® treated floor can provide up to a 10% reduction in insurance premiums and lower WCB rates, it is not only a great value, but quite affordable too.

  • Q: What about my existing contract with another cleaning supply company?

  • Contracts as generally used in the service industry are voidable contracts which means that if what you are currently using doesn’t address a specific need like providing and maintaining an anti-slip surface, then it can’t be regarded as a breach of contract. These types of contracts benefit the provider and not the customer by “locking them in” despite how they are usually presented. The Floor Safety Maintenance Program offers all the benefits of a contract with none of the obligations. Most contracts contain a simple 30-day notice of change.
