Benefits of Stripping And Waxing Your Floors
Do the floors in your business sparkle? Or have they lost their shine, looking tired and dingy? Floors can convey a message to your customers or clients – often without your intention. If things are looking neglected or grimy this will reflect negatively on your business. But, if your clients walk onto a gleaming floor that is impeccably cared for, they know you care about other aspects of your business just as much.
Floors can represent a large investment in your property, particularly if it is an extensive space. You’ll want to protect that investment by regularly stripping and waxing as well as daily maintenance. Like giving your car an oil change, floor maintenance will extend the life of the product while projecting a positive message to your clients, letting them know you care about the details.
Let’s take a look at some of the reasons you should use a floor stripping and waxing service.
#1 Scratch The Surface
Let’s dig down below the surface and get to the heart of the matter. Small scuffs and scratches happen every day as people walk across your floor. These small scrapes are normal wear and tear but, over time, all of those blemishes can actually damage your flooring. These scratches also contribute to a dull finish and worn out look.
A regular floor stripping and waxing service can give your flooring a layer of protection from those minor scuffs and keep your floors looking fresh and inviting.
#2 Your Floors Are Not a Chameleon
Unlike a chameleon, your floors should not change colour! Staining and discolouration cannot be reversed, so protect your floor from dirt, debris and spills. Schedule a regular floor stripping and waxing service to give them a protective coat and prevent discolouration and permanent damage to your flooring.
#3 Three… Two… One… Do You Have Lift Off?
When dirt, debris and moisture get under the surface, individual tiles or floorboards can start to lift or break. Without proper protection, moisture and debris can weaken the glue, and things start to move around. Regular waxing creates a protective barrier within the cracks that prevents moisture from getting below the surface.
#4 Flooring’s Worst Enemy – Moisture
Moisture can cause an enormous amount of damage to any type of flooring. Once it gets under the surface, it spreads and causes discolouration, mold or rot. With moisture present, flooring can quickly deteriorate. Moisture can also cause the surface to warp or bubble, resulting in an obvious deformity in the flooring. Not only is this unsightly, but it can also be dangerous for those walking on or moving things across this area.
#5 Put Your Best Foot Forward
Having a regularly scheduled floor stripping and waxing service will help preserve your floors but also makes it easier for daily janitorial cleaning. These protected surfaces will last longer and look better. Your staff and customers will appreciate the clean, bright environment.
Floors may be at the bottom of your priority list, but as you can see, there are many reasons to invest in a regular stripping and waxing regime. Hiring a professional to complete this task will ensure your time and money are spent wisely.
