Commercial Floor Cleaning and Maintenance


Stripping & Waxing Vinyl Composite Tile (VCT FLOORING)

Regular floor care services and floor cleaning should be a part of every routine maintenance plan, but how do you know when it is a good time to strip and wax your floors for your commercial business?  And, how often is too often when it comes to stripping and waxing your floors?

“How often should I strip and wax my floors?”

The answer depends on the type of business you operate and how much traffic it receives on a daily basis.  Naturally, the more people you have, the dirtier your floors will get. However, it’s about more than looks. Dirt, dust and other debris slowly erode your floors’ shiny and delicate finish, and before long can start to cause real problems.

Stripping and waxing is important to maintain many types of flooring: Vinyl Composite Tile (VCT Flooring), Stone Tile Floor Care, Linoleum strip and wax, and more.  These are important floor care services for your home or business.

To save money and since it is hardly necessary except for in the most demanding environments, floor waxing is not a service you should have performed monthly. As long as you keep the surface properly protected and maintained on a daily basis with typical floor cleaning techniques and cleaning solutions, you should be fine having them stripped and waxed every five to six months.

Floor stripping and waxing is the most effective way to restore your floor, as it clears away all surface layers down to the bare vinyl. Once prepped, up to six coats of fresh wax are applied, and this is what gives your floors that highly desirable luster. A scrub and re-coat application is the step down service from a full strip, and it too can make a marked difference on your floors’ appearance.

Maintain your floors with a regular Wash and Buff service….or, a more intensive Scrub and Re-Coat.  Instead of removing all of the existing wax, during a scrub and re-coat only the top most affected layers are replaced. Two coats are generally applied, and will last upwards between four to six months.  You can get by with this less expensive option and give special care to your building’s flooring by alternating between it and a full strip/wax.
