Windmill Captain Pine - Hard Surface Cleaner 5L

The best cleaning chemicals to use on non-slip floors are alkaline hard surface cleaners in washrooms and general areas, and alkaline degreaser for kitchens and food prep areas.

Here's what we recommend, and what you need to stop using now:

Using the correct type of chemical is half the battle with non-slip flooring.  And that doesn't mean shelling out for the manufacturer's own chemicals.



What to Stop Using NOW!


Stop using Lemon Gel, or Floor maintainers because these contain a polymer (like floor polish).  They will leave a residue which will give the floor a smeary finish and make it more slippery.
