Why that Commercial Floor May Not Need to be Replaced

floor_stripping2If you are a commercial business owner, property manager, or another individual who is responsible for the condition of a commercial floor, at some point in time you will be faced with the decision to repair or replace the flooring. Replacing a commercial floor can be a significant expense and it can cause a great deal of inconvenience for not only employees of the company but also clients or customers.

There will certainly be times when a commercial floor can no longer be repaired, scrubbed, buffed, and waxed, and where replacement is the only viable option. However, a vast majority of commercial floors are replaced before they need to be and this adds a significant expense to the company’s bottom line.

One of the main reasons why a commercial floor may not need to be replaced is that there is a significant amount of wax buildup that could be stripped down and replenished. Any time that you buff and wax a floor, you are adding another layer of wax finish to the surface. That is why it is important to also include stripping as part of general floor maintenance.

How often a commercial floor needs to be stripped down depends on a variety of factors, including how often it is cleaned and waxed, how much the traffic it sees, and the dirt that gets tracked in from outside.

Evaluate the condition of your commercial floor to determine if it is a matter of too much wax buildup or other issues that are causing the floor to appear old and decayed. With the right commercial floor cleaning machines, you can maximize the life of your flooring so that you do not need to consider replacement and the headaches that go with it.
