All floors need care and maintenance. A floor properly coated and maintained can last a long time. As the floor is exposed to traffic soils the surface is attacked. Soils penetrate the coating and become rough and less soil resistant and less reflective.
Routine Maintenance is required to maintain the desired appearance to expand the time between interim and restorative maintenance procedures. This should include the use of proper floor matting to prevent soils from being tracked onto the floor. It also includes regular dust mopping to remove soil and debris that can cause deterioration of the finish.
Top scrub and re-coat is done when routine maintenance no longer has the desired appearance levels. During the top scrub and re-coat, the dirty layers are removed and two or more coats are applied to restore shine.
Over time, traffic and soils take their toll on the finish. The stripping solution emulsifies the dirty layers. The dirty finish is removed with an auto scrubber leaving the surface clean and ready for new layers of wax.
