Reflections® Success Opens Door for Symmetry™ and Buckeye Hard Floor Care
Lemmon School District 52-2 has over 300 students enrolled in kindergarten through twelfth grade. The school district’s 11,000 square foot gym floor is used for school activities and community events. Kelly Berg of Steins Inc. met with Robert Kellog, Maintenance Supervisor, and learned he was unhappy with his gym floor coating. The gym floor did not hold its shine throughout the year, was slippery, and had excessive black marks and scuffs. Berg introduced the Buckeye Reflections Wood Floor Program and asked to perform a full-scale floor demonstration with Arena™ 300, Screen Clean™ and Floortonic™. Kellog agreed to the full-scale and evaluated Arena 300’s shine and durability during the 2011 season. He was so pleased with the results that he fully committed to the Reflections Wood Floor Program for the 2012 season. During the full-scale, Berg also introduced the Symmetry Hand Hygiene Program and implemented Symmetry Antimicrobial Foaming Hand Wash and Symmetry Non-Alcohol Foaming Hand Sanitizer.
Kellog wanted to be able to restore gloss to the floor and improve overall traction during basketball season. Berg trained Kellog and his staff following the Reflections Wood Floor Program. Initially, Kellog was concerned with the time it would take to complete the wet screen process because they had never tried it. Berg showed them the wet screen process did not require additional time, and they discovered their floor was its cleanest, allowing coats to adhere better. Kellog also liked the ability to burnish Arena 300 to restore gloss and grip to the floor. As Kellog evaluated Arena 300, he observed better gloss retention, fewer black marks and scuffs, and better grip that lasted throughout the year. The Reflections Wood Floor Program was easy to follow, more effective, and did not require additional labor compared to their previous program.
