Does this treatment guarantee that I won't have a slip & fall accident?
We do not guarantee that no one will ever fall on a treated floor but we do guarantee that your floor will meet or exceeds Gov’t and industry standards for a “safe walking surface”
Why do you say that the treatment makes it "Safer than Wet"?
Our treatment changes the surface in such a way that when exposed to water the floor is actually measurably less slippery when it’s wet than in its dry state.
Can I buy the product and do it myself?
No. Nano-Grip is only available to licensed applicators.
Why do I need your aftercare products?
Many floors do not need any special treatment in order to maintain their slip resistance but certain environments such as kitchens require products which eliminate grease and prevent a buildup which would degrade our treatment.
How are they different from our regular cleaners?
They have been specifically designed and tested to be more effective against grease and oil.
How long does it take to treat my floor or bathtub?
A tub or shower will take 15 minutes or so. Most residential jobs are completed in less than 3 hours.
How long before I can walk on the floor or use the tub?
The surface is ready for use immediately, there is no cure time.

Virtually all types of businesses can benefit from a Nano-Grip Floor Treatment.
Does the treatment change the way the floor or bathtub look or feel?

Will having my floors treated affect my insurance rate?
Upon receipt of your 2 year warrantee documenting your new slip resistant SCOF numbers you should have your insurance agent fax the document to underwriting for reclassification and adjustment.
I've owned my business for many years and never had a slip and fall accident. Why should I worry about it?
If you stay in business long enough statistics indicate that it is inevitable that someone will suffer a slip and fall at some point. The problem is universal across all business types.
