Stripping and waxing your Vinyl floors
Vinyl tiles are favoured over other flooring materials due to their durability, high resilience to abrasion, low cost, and ease of maintenance. Vinyl floors are usually covered by a number of coats of sealer and wax that provide protection and easy cleaning and maintenance.
However, vinyl floors can loose their sheen or lustre overtime as the coats of sealer and wax becomes abraded and scuffed by regular daily foot traffic. Without a proper floor maintenance program vinyl floors can also discolour. If the layers of sealer and wax are allowed to wear away then the surface of the vinyl can become permanently damaged and affect the longevity of your flooring.
Floor Master provides the full services needed to maintain your vinyl floors. We have the expertise and experience to maintain your floors in prime condition. From on going floor maintenance, to scrubbing, stripping, resealing, and buffing, Floor Master can provide you with a customised program to ensure that your floors are revitalised and protected.
Vinyl stripping and waxing is a process that removes all the coats of sealer and wax. Often during a regular maintenance program the application of a new topcoat is an intermediate step before performing a full strip and seal of the vinyl floor. The amount of foot traffic is frequently a determining factor in the scheduling of cleaning and maintenance.
We use safe, good quality and fast-acting floor stripping solutions that are specifically designed for the removal of floor polishes and sealers from vinyl floors. The stripper solution is applied onto the floor then the floor is machine scrubbed to remove all the old sealer and wax. The surface is then cleaned, “neutralised” (with a solution containing a PH neutralising additive) and dried, ready for the application of a high quality sealer. After applying sealer, we then apply high quality floor finish.
