### You should only use finish mops when applying floor finish, not regular mops.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
Finish mops are specifically designed for applying floor finish. They have a different construction and material compared to regular mops, which allows for better application and distribution of the finish. Regular mops may not be as effective in applying the finish evenly and may leave streaks or uneven coverage. Therefore, it is recommended to use finish mops for applying floor finish to achieve the best results.

### When applying finish, if pouring, you should not pour more than what amount of finish at one time?

• A.

One quarter of the aisle

• B.

One thirds of the aisle

• C.

One half the aisle

• D.

The entire aisle

A. One quarter of the aisle
Explanation
When applying finish, it is not recommended to pour more than one quarter of the aisle at one time. Pouring more than this amount can lead to an uneven application of the finish, resulting in an inconsistent finish appearance. It is important to pour a manageable amount of finish to ensure that it can be spread evenly and smoothly across the surface. Pouring too much at once can also make it difficult to control the application and may result in wastage of the finish.

### How many total coats of finish is recommended on the floors after the floors have been stripped?

• A.

2 Coats

• B.

4 Coats

• C.

6 Coats

• D.

8 Coats

D. 8 Coats
Explanation
The recommended number of coats of finish on the floors after they have been stripped is 8. This is likely because applying multiple coats of finish helps to build up a strong and durable protective layer on the floors. The more coats applied, the better the floors will be protected against wear and tear, spills, and other potential damage. Additionally, multiple coats of finish can enhance the appearance of the floors by providing a smoother and more polished finish.

Explanation
It is not recommended to apply more than 4 coats of finish at one time or in one day. Applying too many coats at once can lead to uneven drying and curing, resulting in a poor finish. It is important to allow each coat to dry and cure properly before applying the next coat to ensure a smooth and durable finish.

### You should dry mop the store floor every day before cleaning the store with any cleaning chemical?

• A.

True

• B.

Explanation
Dry mopping the store floor before cleaning with any cleaning chemical is important because it helps remove loose dirt, dust, and debris. This ensures that the floor is properly prepared for the cleaning process and allows the cleaning chemical to work more effectively. Dry mopping also helps prevent the dirt from spreading or smearing when the cleaning chemical is applied. Therefore, it is recommended to dry mop the store floor every day before using any cleaning chemical.
