This article will attempt to explain the three floor maintenance processes of cleaning,stripping and waxing,in the hope that this knowledge will help you do a better job.

Sweeping and dusting is an effective way of keeping your floor free of dirt or grime. Remove spilled liquids and foods immediately the accident happens. Vacuum cleaners can be used to do a more thorough job in less time.

Have floor mats in areas with high traffic or where there is exposure to elements of the weather. If there are stains on your floor,you need to remove them;your ordinary nail polish could do wonders here. Note that your floor type determines the kind of mop or brush you use on it. For industrial floors,you can use a high power scrubber. Choose the right cleaning solution.

Stripping follows after cleaning. This process aims at removing embedded dirt and scratches that are noticeable on the surface after a thorough cleaning. Have the right equipment and clothing and make sure that there is adequate ventilation before you can start applying the stripping chemical on the surface. Carefully apply the stripping chemical to the floor evenly using a mop. You will then need to use your scrubbing machine to thoroughly scrape any wax buildup. Use either a squeegee or a wet-dry vacuum machine to suck away the wax and the stripping solution. Clean your floor using a mop and water and allow it to dry.

Put some wax into a bucket,dip the head into the solution but make sure there isn’t too much wax on the mop;apply a thin layer of wax on your floor from the farthest place ,working towards the exit. Allow the wax to dry and then repeat the process up to 5 times depending on the condition of the floor. Buffing is finally done to give the floor a clean,fresh,shiny gloss that makes it look fabulous.
