Q: We recently had our gym floor sanded, repainted and sealed in October of last year. The paint is coming off the lettering and gym floor logo. The company changed from oil based to water based. Why is the paint peeling off the floor?

Q: We have a gym floor that we refinish (oil based product) every year around Christmas. We are having troubles with it being very slick right now (basketball games and practice for a month and a half before we can re-finish). We have cleaned several times with a very fine scrubber (very low abrasive) but it really doesn’t help too much. We try cleaners that are not to leave a residue and also used wet towels on dry-mops. Nothing is working.
