A common misconception about floor stripping is that it needs to be done every time a floor is waxed; this isn’t necessarily true. Floor stripping will need to be done at some point but does not have to be done every time a floor is waxed. You do not, however, want your layers of wax to become dull and build up over time. This is why stripping is necessary.
Because floor stripping & waxing involves a specific process, leaving this job to a professional is best. In addition, specific equipment must be used; if it is misused, your floor can be destroyed, or worse, someone could be injured. Floor stripping & waxing also involves chemical solvents and old, used wax, both of which must be disposed of properly. In particular situations, such as a nursing home or hospital, it is necessary to use a low odor stripping mixture. Again, a professional will be able to advise you in these circumstances best.
The goal of floor stripping & waxing is essentially to protect your floors. The idea is that the top layer of wax will absorb any nicks, scrapes, or dents and preserve the life and appearance of your floors. This is especially true in high-traffic areas of a home and businesses with a lot of foot traffic. The level of traffic in your area also determines how often your floor should be waxed.
