Are your floors starting to look dull? Have they started to lose their shine? Have you noticed that they don’t seem to look as clean as they used to, even after you’ve swept and mopped them? If so, it might be time to have your floors stripped. For more information about what the process entails, read on.
Benefits of floor stripping
The purpose of floor stripping is to remove the floor’s existing finish. There are numerous reasons that commercial floors need to be stripped and waxed. Not only will it enhance the appearance of your office or showroom, the final result can help make a positive first impression on your customers. For example, let’s say you need to buy a refrigerator and you decide to visit two different appliance stores. Store #1 appears clean, well-lit, and the staff is friendly. Store #2 is nearly identical to store #2, but the environment appears to be dirty. Which company would you give your business to?
How it works
When you hire a commercial cleaning company, they’ll start by dusting and mopping your floors. Once the dirt and debris has been removed, they’ll prepare and apply the stripping material. Stripping material is a solution that removes the current finish from your floor. Stripping can also remove discoloration and embedded soil. Once the solution is applied, it will need to “dwell” for a set period of time, which gives the solution time to do its job. (In some cases, this can be as short as 5-10 minutes.) If floors have heavy build-up, the dwell time may need to be extended.
When the dwell time is up, workers will finish stripping your floors with a machine. Depending on the state of your floors, this step might need to be repeated. Once the old finish is removed, the remaining solution will be cleaned up with mop. When the floors are dry, the new finish can be applied.
