Question

No-rinse strippers state that rinsing isn't required. Do you believe that rinsing would be a good idea anyway?


Answer

Failing to rinse is not a good idea. There will always be some type of slurry residue that has stuck to the floor, especially around doorways. along edges, and in corners. An extra rinse allows you to inspect carefully the results, and rework any defects with a razor blade or green pad. Thorough rinsing boosts your level of professionalism.
