How often Do I strip and wax floor?

How often should I strip and wax?

Depending on the traffic and the condition of the floor.

If you have a heavy traffic area, you should strip and wax once in 3 months to 6 months. If the floor has still lots of shine, but only some scratches and scuff marks, you do not need to strip and wax again.

Instead consider doing a top scrub and re-coat.

What is top scrub and re-coat?

These are simple steps.

1: Dust mop the floor.

2: Lightly wet mop the floor with neutral cleaner. Dilute about 6 to 10 oz per gallon of clean water.

3: Lightly top scrub with red color pad with your floor buffer to remove scratches and black marks.

4: Rinse off the floor with clean water.

5: Let the floor dry first.

6: Lay 1st coat of wax and let it dry.

7: Lay 2nd coat of wax and let it dry.

Note: Are you still using the old fashion finishing mop for applying the wax? Please try with microfiber applicator system. It works lot faster and nicer.

Here is a video instruction on how to apply wax with microfiber applicator.

Good article, depending on the type of wax and foot traffic the floor can be waxed as often as once every 3 month (schools, retail stores, hospitals). We wax office lunchrooms usually twice per year. Also there are some not frequently used areas that can be waxed once a year or once every 2 years. Good stripping and waxing video can be also found here:
