A successful commercial building in Alberta sees a lot of foot traffic daily, whether that’s new customers walking through or regular employees heading in and out throughout the workday. Unfortunately, all this busy activity can wind up causing some pretty brutal damage to your business’ floors, leaving them looking old and uncared for. As business owners, we know you take great pride in the overall look of your establishment. Here’s why you should strip and wax your commercial floors regularly:
Strip floors of old wax for better aesthetics
Let’s be honest, the big reason a Calgary commercial building owner will want to strip and wax the floors is that they’re invested in the overall aesthetic of the space. Damaged or dull floors age a building drastically, making customers and employees less likely to appreciate the space. If your floors have already been waxed – and they should be! – then the majority of that ageing has actually occurred on the wax, not your floorboards. Adding another layer of wax could add some shine, but it won’t be able to hide the grime that’s blended into the previous wax layer. Professionally stripping the older wax will permanently remove all that dirt buildup; properly prepping your floors for an even, enchanting shine.
Wax floors to prevent damage
Without regularly waxing, the wear and tear of foot traffic will permanently damage your building’s floors. This can include scuff marks and discolorations, as well as more expensive concerns. Primarily, wax prevents moisture from getting into or under your flooring. Without wax, flooring can bubble up or be deformed by moisture, as well as grow dangerous moulds underneath. Professional waxing preserves floors by ensuring that any scratches or spills affect the top layers of the wax, keeping your commercial building’s infrastructure safe. Keep the high value of your investment with regular waxing to prevent damage and maintain the aesthetic quality of your floors. Although stripping and waxing is necessary for all types of flooring, it can especially improve the look of wood flooring by hiding naturally occurring indents and grooves.
Hire a professional to save money
For a lot of DIY-prone Calgarians, this can sound counter-intuitive. However, hiring a professional commercial cleaning company is particularly necessary when it comes to stripping and waxing floors. This is a tough job to do right and requires both specialized training and the best quality tools. An improper mixture used to strip or wax will cause permanent damage to your floors, either by disfiguring the flooring or by compromising the length of your floor’s life. Stripping and waxing is the most affordable way to “get” new floors since it adds shine and maintains the value of your building longer.
