Floor Stripping

As winter is about to whined down time is coming to strip and wax our floors. So here are a few tips for floor refinishing.

First determine weather the floor requires a strip. You can tell by looking at the following things.
 -Yellowing of finish or tile
 -Build up in edges
 -Browning in wax
 -Patchy areas
These are signs that your floor may require a strip as opposed to a scrub.

If you are stripping your floors consider a ECP or Green seal certified stripper. I have found that Time Out Plus from Dustbane is extremely effective in most situations. We had a floor 2 weeks ago with over 12 coats of wax and we brought it down to the tile with 1 strip. The key thing like any stripper is dwell time. We diluted product 1:4 and gave 10 minutes dwell. Time Plus also has no odor so it's great for any health and safety concerns.

When waxing I would apply 2 coats of sealer and 3 coats of finish to give your floor the perfect shine.
