Scrub and Wax

It's mid winter and our floors are looking rough. Here's a little tip to get them to last through to April. Give them a light scrub and wax.

Many contractors have told me how they use stripper in a lesser dilution to do this, but consider. Stripper is designed to work a certain dilutions so diluting it lighter will work But could also damage your floor. Stripper is designed to breakdown the metal interlock in the finish. I would recommend not introducing stripper to your floors unless you are ready to strip your floors. Now a days every manufacturer makes a GP cleaner for scrubbing floors plus the dilution ratio is manufactured to be light and effective for removal of soil and wax from your floors. You will also save money as these cleaners are usually cheaper than strippers.

After scrubbing your apply 1 to 2 coats of finish and you will protect your investment for another 3-4 months.
