Flooring is usually one of the things we neglect to protect. Flooring of all types is susceptible to scuffs, scratches, dings and dents. That is why it is necessary to protect it. Floor waxing is a technique used to protect hard flooring like VCT tile, stone tiles, concrete, and hardwood flooring. In sort, after the floors are thoroughly cleaned, it is layered with a clear, and extremely durable, coating of wax. This wax coat is typically several layers in depth, to give extra protection. Another benefit of waxing is aesthetics. Waxing your floors can give them a pleasant shine, and even deepen the appearance of certain colors in your floor.
Floor striping is the proccess of removing old, worn wax, and replacing it with new wax. this is due to how floor waxing works. Because the older the wax coating gets, the more worn it gets. the wax coating may start to look dull, even though the flooring underneath it isn't! Also, if the wax coat is worn enough, it may reveal the flooring underneath, putting it at risk of being dented, scuffed or scratched! This is why striping the wax is neccessary. Striping removes the top layers of wax from the floor, leaving the floor it prepared for new wax. This process not only allows the wax to stick to the floor better, but it also ensures a much more even finish overall.
Over time, floor can start to look dull and outdated. A solution to this if burnishing. Highspeed floor burnishing is a method used to give any hard surface a high-gloss finish. The process of burnishing is very simple. After thoroughly washing the floor, a rotary machine is fitted with a soft pad. This rotary machine can rotate at amazing speed, some even reaching speeds as high as 2000 RPM! The pad fitted to the machine will smooth out any micro scratches in the underlying surface, leaving the surface extremely flat and even. The result is a high gloss finish. burnishing works excellent on VCT tile, and can look even better with a coat of wax on top.
