Environmentally preferable floor cleaners: Alternatives to finishes and strippers


While there are opportunities for reducing the impacts from floor finish and strippers, none of the options completely eliminate health concerns or suggest a clear environmentally preferable solution.

Elimination and substitution are inherently safer and the most effective at reducing the hazard.
