How often should I strip and wax?
Depending on the traffic and the condition of the floor.
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.
