When it comes to running a business, it’s important you make sure that your company puts its best foot forward. If your lobby’s floors don’t shine and sparkle like they used to, or if they’re starting to look aged or discolored, it may be time to have them stripped. Below are the top 3 signs you should consider having the job done.
Your floors have lost their luster
When you go to an auto dealership, one of the first things you notice is the luster of the cars. They’re shiny, well cared for, and eye catching. But once you take a new car home, after time, the exterior stops looking as good as it did the day you bought it. It doesn’t matter how many times you run the car through the car wash– the luster will start to fade. That is, until you have it detailed.
We can all agree that cars look amazing after they’re detailed. Why is this relevant? Because stripping is to floors as detailing is to cars.
There numerous signs that it’s time to have your floors stripped. Examples include the following:
- Your floors are scratched or scuffed
- They’ve become discolored due to UV light exposure
- Your floors have started to look hazy and powdery (aka, the finish has started to oxidize)
- Your floor’s finish has started to peel
- Your floor’s finish has “chemical burns” from being cleaned with bleach or other harsh chemicals and you’ve noticed your floors have dull spots or “dull areas.”

If the damage is left untreated, it can become more pronounced over time. When you maintain your floors, not only will they look better, they’ll also last longer.
