Floors get a lot of abuse from shoes and debris that are tracked in, such as sand or salt. Keeping your floors clean improves the way your business looks and feels and gives a good impression. Floor stripping and waxing is thought about the least, but a very important part of keeping your business appealing. The conditions of your floors will be noticed immediately. Dull and grimy floors give the wrong impression. Floors with a lot of wear and tear won’t last as long as they can.
Stripping and waxing will remove dirt, scuffs, grease, and stains, thus removing the likelihood of employees getting sick from dirt or slipping on a substance and hurting themselves. They also protect the flooring from moisture and water damage. Surfaces last longer when they are properly cleaned and serviced. Finally, having beautiful floors will show your customers you care about quality and keep them coming back time and again.
The following are some of the great benefits that come from proper maintenance:
- Prevents scratches: Due to traffic and the wearing down of the wax coating, scratches to the flooring can happen very easily without regular upkeep.
- Prevents any tile lifting: When the protective coating is worn down it leaves the tiles vulnerable to elements such as water and debris. When water gets in between the cracks of the tiles, the glue can become waterlogged and will no longer adhere. This can cause unwanted lifting of the individual tiles of vinyl, VCT, etc.
- Prevents any staining or discoloration: Without proper protection, constant traffic can cause the color and shine to dull and even become discolored. This is usually due to dirt, debris and the wearing down of the protective coating on the floor.
- High Shine: Properly maintaining your floors by regularly stripping, waxing and getting periodic spray buffing treatments creates a shine that is unforgettable! It will also make your mopping efforts more efficient and leave you with an easy-to-clean surface.
When you have your floor stripped, sealed, and apply wax, it forms a barrier between the floors and anything that can damage and stain them, helping to protect your floors from traffic and every day wear.
It is important to use the correct chemicals and equipment for the type of floor that is being waxed. The wrong materials can damage your floors. Professionals will have the right equipment and chemicals and training to properly strip and wax your floors.
