Initial Sealing and Waxing of new floors

There are many types of sealers, floors and flooring materials in the flooring industry. Floor Master Building Maintenance Ltd has encountered and dealt with many during the course of our 30 years in the floor care industry. We are vastly experienced in new floor initial sealing and waxing, and highly recommend that you seal and wax your new floors.

It is important to initially seal and wax your new floor to protect your new investment. This will prolong the life and preserve the floor’s natural appearance. The general opinion today, after careful observation and study, is that floor sealing must be given serious consideration prior to the implementation of a programmed cleaning schedule. The wide range of flooring surfaces employed in commercial and industrial settings merit careful examination, especially due to varying porosity levels. Key considerations when assessing a floor include locale, condition purpose, type of industry, and the type and amount of traffic to which the floor surface is subjected. Our staff is on hand to advise and recommend a suitable product to enhance and protect your floor surface.

Of the many reasons for sealing floors, the porosity of the material commands the most attention. The following list summarizes some of the most important floor sealing considerations:

  1. porosity at the surface
  2. floor protection–good adhesion for floor coating
  3. worn, roughened floor–prevent further deterioration
  4. ease of maintenance
  5. strengthen the floor by increasing the density, making it more durable and extending its useful life
  6. makes the surface more hygienic by sealing out soil and bacteria
  7. minimizes or prevents damage to the flooring from the spillage of chemicals even if the floor coatings have been worn through.

There are temporary sealers, permanent sealers, penetrating sealers, and surface sealers.
