What is floor stripping and waxing?
Floor stripping and waxing is a process of cleaning and protecting hard surface floors. It involves the removal of old wax, dirt, and grime from a floor surface, and then applying a new coat of wax to protect the floor.
Floor stripping is the process of removing old wax, dirt, and grime from the floor using a chemical stripper. This process is typically done with a rotary or cylindrical machine equipped with a stripping pad. The machine is used to agitate the stripper, which breaks down the old wax and removes it from the surface.
Floor waxing is the process of applying a new coat of wax to the floor surface. The wax is typically applied using a mop or machine equipped with a pad. Once the wax is applied, it is buffed to a high shine.
This process is typically done for commercial and industrial settings, where the floors are exposed to heavy foot traffic and need to be protected from wear and tear. The process of striping and waxing can also make floors look like new, and it can also extend the life of the flooring.
