You may be tempted to put off floor waxing or stripping for the time being, but this approach can lead to lasting damage to your floor systems. If you suspect your floor may require stripping or waxing, our experts can work with you to evaluate your situation and help you make a decision.
Wondering what to look out for? When too many layers of wax have been applied over time, floors begin to yellow or darken. That generally means it’s a good time to strip floors. During the winter, salt and abrasives quickly build up on floors, so they generally need to be waxed more frequently to provide a protective barrier.
When you follow a routine stripping and waxing schedule, you’re taking the necessary precautions to:
- Remove debris
- Protect the substrate
- Extend floor lifetimes
- Optimize floor appearance
- Improve effectiveness of scrubbing/buffing
By taking a proactive approach to maintaining floor systems, you ultimately experience a return on investment with floors that will sparkle for years to come.
