Recently, our showroom floor was looking like it had seen better days, and quite possibly, after 9 years of commercial traffic, it was time to say goodbye and good riddance!
This floor has been used and abused to the fullest. Not one person removes their footwear at the door. No, not one. (and I guess we can’t expect that) Our favourite construction guys with steeled toes full, and covered in cement and drywall dust; our local farmers dropping by after a day in the field, their rubber boots full of mud and manure. The winter traffic with the snow and salt and sand….. Not only did our floor receive some severe traffic, but also, shamefully, had not been maintained properly. Until last year when we hired our first custodian, this floor was only mopped a handful of times per year. Shhhh….don’t tell our supplier….or our mom’s!
Below, a picture of the center isle of our showroom. This is after if had been swept, vacuumed and mopped! Straight from the entrance, through to our warehouse. It’s dull, it’s dreary, it’s downright dreadful.
In a last ditch effort to bring back the luster and shine to our vinyl tile, I opened up a bottle a bottle of Armstrong ShineKeeper, and with hope and a prayer, I got started. The process is simple. In fact, there are only 3 steps.
- Sweep and or Vaccum
- Clean floor using Armstrong Once n’ Done
- Using a sponge mop, or Microfiber mop, apply 2 Coats of Armstrong Shinekeeper
Done, done and done! Here are the results. Oooh! Aahhh! Scroll through the slide show to see.
We currently retail this amazing shine maker here at Stirling Carpet & Flooring for the low low price of $19.99.
I did a cost comparison on Amazon….I know we are all shopping on-line these days. The lowest price I could find was $15.99 + $20.00 Shipping and handling. Moral of this story? Shop local if you can. We love your support.
I’ve posted below just a few of the Amazon reviews that I found. Personally, I love this product. If it can spiff up my commercial space, it can spiff up yours! Happy Spring Cleaning Season!

Love, love, love this product!!!!! I have been using this product for about 3 or 4 years. I love it! It leaves a great shine & the best part, it dries very quickly. I would say 15-20 minutes. Highly recommend! 12/9/16 This is a p.s. to my first review. I did not mention that the linoleum I am using this on is about 30 years old! The first time I used it I could not believe the difference! Friends came over and thought I had a new floor. I do plan to replace this flooring but until I door, I will keep using the Armstrong Floor Polish. This product is amazing!!! My 30 yr old floor in my condo looks brand new. You have to try it and you will never be sorry! The cheaper versions of floor waxers cannot compare to this product. And once again, dries very quickly! I love, love, love this product!
Thanks to the lady who took the time to write the review about how good this product is….I got it a few days ago and tried it today…I have old synthetic tiles in my kitchen and nothing seems to brighten them up..I also only use natural products so i was reluctant to order this product, glad i did..There is no bad odor and the floor is not sticky after it dries…I followed the instructions and my floor is beautiful….I am hoping that the beautiful but not too shiny look will last a while….will give an update soon…..update….if u have dull fake tiles u should get this product…it is so good. I polished my very dull floors almost two weeks now and the floors still look beautiful. No scuff marks and strong odor like MopNglow….I will be ordering more soo so I can have for future use…thanks Amazon10 people found this helpful
Beautiful results I used this following the Once N Done floor cleaner. My new flooring looks better than the day I installed it!
