Floor Strip and Wax

Floor stripping

Applying the floor stripping agent to the floor.

Clempire Janitorial starts the Floor Stripping and Waxing process by ensuring all safety guidelines are being followed by all team members. We set up wet floor signs and barriers at all entries. We alert all customers that might be in the area that the space will be temporally closed. Everyone’s safety is of the utmost importance.

To prepare the floor we start by doing a general sweep of the floor to remove any dirt and solid debris. Then we protect any non-moveable items with tape and/or paper. Then we proceed to stripping the floor down to the bare tile to make sure the floor is as clean and flawless as possible.

Floor scrubbing

Scrubbing the floor to remove the old wax and grime

Then we scrub the floor with a floor machine to remove all of the old dirty wax and grime that has built up over time.

We pick up the stripper, wax, grime and other contaminates from the floor with a squeegee and wet vacuum. We must work quickly and safely, so the old wax does not dry and bond back on to the floor.

Safety Alert. All team members must keep in mind that stripper on the floor is extremely slippery even with non-slip shoes.

We then rinse the floor over and over again to ensure the floor is clean and streak free. Sometimes our floor team will have to repeat this step multiple times to remove all of the old floor finish.

Waxing the Floor

Waxing the Floor with a High Traffic Floor Finish.

Last we carefully and evenly apply between 4-7 coats of wax depending several variables.

  • Amount of Foot Traffic
  • Retail, Medical, Industrial, etc.
  • Desired Shine/Finish

While applying the floor wax, we set up fans to help ventilate the area. After each coat of wax dries we test the floor and look for imperfections that we may attend to. That is briefly how to we strip and wax a floor.

Clempire Janitorial’s Strip and Wax Service ensures that the floor is stripped and the floor is clean before waxing to ensure the most brilliant shine. And as we always say “All We Leave Behind is Sparkle and Shine.”
