Slip Test By P & S Property Management

Client : Rendall & Rittner Kidbrooke Village

Kidbrooke Village is a Luxurious Residential Block near Greenwich South London managed by Rendall & Rittner .
The flooring had become slippery when wet around the swimming pool and within the changing areas , we performed slip tests which failed with an average reading of 22 . Test cleaning with PH neutralising chemicals indicated a large build up of Alkaline soap residue causing the areas to become dangerous under foot when wet .
All areas required to be thoroughly Machine scrubbed removing all build up of slippery residue . Particular care taken when working pool side and staff strictly adhering to Risk Assessments throughout process .
Once the areas were all cleaned , neutralised and a non slip chemical applied .
On completion further slip tests were performed and all areas passed with an average reading of 36 . Reports were then issued to client and managing agent along with a recommended ongoing maintenance plan to avoid further build up .
