For old sealing or cleanser removing we recommend to lay product ROMEX® Grundreiniger in ration of 1:5 and to clean so, as it is described over.
After surface cleaning dirt is collected with the help of rubber mop and floor-cloth or vacuum cleaned.
After dirt is removed, floor is neutralized with pure water. In conclusion, water is cleaned a vacuum cleaner for liquid removing or floor-cloth.

After cleaning by ROMEX® Grundreiniger undiluted product ROMEX® Siegel is laid on the clean dry floor. The product is poured out into oblong bucket (don’t pour out on the floor surface) and laid by pressed out ROMEX® Microfasermop.
The product is laid without effort by humid Microfasermop and in one direction. As only it is getting noticeable, that by product laying defense layer is getting uneven moisten Microfasermop again.
It is important that the product should be laid in sufficient amount otherwise spots and strips can be on. So, all area should be sealed twice. In conclusion let processed surface be dried up (between laying of the layers, depending on temperature of air, 20-40 minutes), because for second layer will be laid surface should be dry! After second layer will be laid first maintenance / sealing are finished. After second layer will be laid let product ROMEX® Siegel harden during 12-16 hours. At this time, surface shouldn’t be exposed to loadings. Defense layer ROMEX® Siegel (sealing) can be cleaned only by ROMEX® Unterhaltsreiniger (for daily cleaning). All other cleansers lead to destruction of protective layer.
