    Flat regular finish mop and Rubbermaid rectangle bucket with a press down
    for excess finish. Been using this fo 3yrs. now. Cats ass. My partner and I did the old fashion way for 25years. I don’t use stripper any longer and that’s the cats ass. Did a small floor today, and cleaned the cgd with my TM all from my trailer:.))))) Dang I hate portys, but I own 2. Didn’t use them or the Cimex..
    Prolly should’ve used Cimex though.

    Don’t use stripper. Use special prep pads. Square scrub, but not exclusively square. Use 13, 17, 20, and even on the auto scrubbers. Rarely use stripper.:.)

    I thought pressure washing was not good for windows.

    Yep.....check out nano technology. ...

    Geeeez.....i gotta tell you guys everything?

    Google it!

    It'll give yor floors that wet look...

    The atoms that make up the wax are actually smaller than the atoms of the surface. ..
    Therefore imbeding itself deeper into the surface.
    Modern technology. ..

    If you really want a shine....use ceramic coating. ..way 'pensive but will last 6-7 years....

    I don't know but I use a 20 degree tip and about 500 psi just getting it wet pretty much.
    I'm no pro just what I'm doing.

    Already been down the nano rabbit hole, the polishing rabbit hole, and lots of other holes:headscratch: spensive is the key word on anything. Just like mega dollars for tile and grout cleaning, if it ain’t practical, they won’t use it long term. That’s what they hire me for. Keep it looking good at a reasonable amount of money, #please

    That is is cool. That would be soft pressure cleaning. That works, did you do the all the exterior as well?
