Floor stripping and waxing can be done anytime, but the beginning of winter can be ideal. Winter salt and excessive moisture strip polished floors and make them susceptible to scratches, scuffs, deterioration, and lifting. It is critical to maintain commercial floors with regular floor care. Maximize the lifespan of your commercial floors by scheduling floor stripping and waxing services every six months for your business.

Protect Floors

Avoiding moisture damage during the winter can be challenging without ample protection. Floor stripping and waxing are beneficial during the winter for preventing safety hazards and deterring wear and tear. Many commercial floor materials require waxing; however, the frequency, type of wax, and finish will differ by flooring type. Hardwood, vinyl, rubber, cork, and terracotta are common flooring materials compatible with wax. The application process is generally the same for all types of flooring materials; however, porous floors may require an additional sealant for protection and better adhering.

Minimize Slips, Trips & Falls

Wet conditions during the winter can make slips, trips, and falls more likely to occur. Wiping floors daily and utilizing entry mats and runners can reduce workplace accidents. Floor stripping and waxing improve grip and traction. Keep solid floor surfaces clear of dust and debris, as it makes floors slippery.

Avoid Moisture Damage

Porous commercial floors are vulnerable to water damage during the winter and need regular stripping, waxing, and sealing to prevent mould and mildew growth. Prolonged exposure to moisture can cause floors to warp, corrode, swell, and decay. It is crucial to regularly maintain commercial floors and wipe up any water or spills immediately. Stripping and waxing provide an additional layer of protection for porous floors by blocking the absorption of moisture.

Revive Dull Floors

The winter is often one of the busiest times of year for many Vancouver businesses. It is human nature to notice surroundings, especially when entering a new space. Floors take up a lot of space in a business and are often one of the first things a person sees. A lasting first impression is the key to attracting and retaining customers and boosting productivity. Dull commercial floors can make a business appear neglected and unhygienic. Stripping and waxing revive old floors and bring back their initial shine.
