Sweeping and dusting a floor is usually all you need to do to get your floor looking clean and glossy. Get into the habit of cleaning off spills and messes as soon as they happens to avoid having to do a heavier job later on. Vacuum cleaners can be used to do a more thorough job in less time.
Have floor mats in areas with high traffic or where there is exposure to elements of the weather. You could use your regular nail polish remover to eliminate tough floor stains. Note that your floor type determines the kind of mop or brush you use on it. For industrial floors,you can use a high power scrubber. Ask your retailer for advice on the best cleaning solution for your specific floor surface.
Let’s talk about stripping now. You may notice some worn down areas on the floor,or some scratches and dirt that is sunk into the floor’s structure;these can be effectively removed by performing some stripping work. Insure that the stripping chemical you use is one that the manufacturer recommends for your floor. It is time to apply the stripping chemical;use a mop to do this. You will then need to use your scrubbing machine to thoroughly scrape any wax buildup. A wet-dry vacuum machine can be used to remove the wax that has build up as well as the stripper solution. Water and a mop should then be used to clean the floor.
Use a new mop to apply the wax onto the floor. Apply 2-5 wax layers,depending on your floor and preference. Buff the floor after the wax has dried up to a fine,glossy shine.
If this seems like too much work for you,it probably is; just call a reliable Lubbock floor maintenance service.
