So now, the question is about aftercare,
How to take care of your floor after stripping and waxing?
Below are few guidelines from our floor waxing experts which are easy to follow and simple to execute…
Dust Mopping – It Should Be Done Daily!
Dust and dirt creeps in every day. Whether it’s a home, an office, a retail shop or a warehouse. Ensuring that this dust does not settle and accumulate over time is key to maintaining your waxed floor. Therefore, you should dust mop your floor daily and mop with a neutral floor cleaner.
Use a light mop it would be easy to clean the surface, making the job less tedious. Furthermore it would also enable you to conveniently access hard-to-reach places.
Do dust mopping once a day and you will see the results for yourself. Where foot traffic tends to be higher, dust mopping frequency would need to be increased.
Buffing in Addition to Dust Mopping
Dust mopping alone won’t help you retain the shine of your newly waxed floor. Interspersed buffing should also be carried out. For that, you will need a floor buffer and a restoring solution. Consult a professional floor stripping and waxing service in Bakersfield to get an idea about which cleaning solution you should use.
Buffing known as burnishing creates friction, while hardening the finish and creating a high shine. This effectively helps to get rid of floor abrasions, such as scuff marks, and other deep settled stains. It should be done at least one time week along, with dust mopping if it’s a commercial floor. For homeowners the need for buffing is not extensive.
Use Floor Mats
Foot traffic tracks in dirt and dust, as people move in and out of a building. This can leave your waxed floor dirty over time. There will also be instances, where a small pebble gets anchored to a boot and gets carried into the building.
That small pebble can cause scruff marks over your waxed floor.
Using floor mats can help to trap debris, dirt and dust. Of course, you can’t go laying down floor mats all across your home or building, but you can be more strategic with your approach.
Following these tips would ensure that your waxed floor retains shine over a longer period and help you get the most out of your earlier investment.
