Floor stripping and waxing is the first step in maintaining a stunning floor. Every floor is distinct in its own way and has to be treated as such. At Intertech Building Services, we understand that high traffic areas are prone to dirt and grit and can make a floor immediately look less-than-professional. Dirt and grit can harm your floors completely. With time, floors will develop scratches and begin to yellow and wear. This is when you need to strip, seal, and wax your floor. Nothing makes a business look more professional than glossy, properly maintained floors!
Many business owners don’t realize that when a layer of wax is put down on your floor, it adds a barrier between the floor and anything that it comes into contact with. By regularly maintaining your floors, washing to eliminate surface dirt (safeguarding the wax itself), and waxing to increase defense over time, the lifetime of your floors can be extended much further.
Our experienced and professional staff help you with all of your floor stripping and waxing needs. Here are the steps we take:
Dust and mop floor while removing gum, labels, and anything else we may find
Mix stripper as per label’s instruction
For safety purposes, put “wet floor” sign
Apply stripping solution and allow time to penetrate to the old finish without drying
Scrub with the auto scrubber, and detail edges with the edging tool
Rinse floor thoroughly
Apply three to four coats of floor finish in 24 hours
Allow enough time to dry between coats
Safety is important—we always use the recommended equipment, and apply our product in a ventilated area.
Any stubborn wax accumulation hiding in floor corners is scraped by hand, scooped up, and removed. We then wash the floor with clean water and let it dry before we start waxing. We then place a safety sealant on your completely stripped floors. Naturally, we allow each layer of wax finish to dry prior to the next layer being put onto the floors. When the final layer of wax is dry, we use a high-speed burnisher to buff your floors to a rewarding shine.
