Even with regular cleaning and maintenance protocols, commercial floors are notorious for being a hotbed of dirt, grime, and dust. However, you don’t want to clean your commercial hard floors so much that they look worn out. That being said, having a protective finish on top of your flooring is the first step towards enhancing the longevity of your floors over time. Floor finish can wear down over the long run, which is why understanding just how floor waxing and stripping mistakes can lead to issues down the line. Here, a few key mistakes commercial cleaning companies should avoid making when waxing and stripping any office building’s floors.
Avoid Strong Or Harsh Chemicals
Unfortunately, many floor strippers out there are highly corrosive. Meaning, they’ll ultimately leave behind a residue that can lead to damaged floors if the floor substrate itself isn’t able to tolerate the chemical component of the floor stripper being used. As a result, knowing your floor substrate material and what type of floor stripper would work best can truly become the difference for your commercial flooring.
Wrong Chemical Dilution
Floor strippers need to be properly diluted. Otherwise, they can lead to significant issues on your commercial floors. A common commercial cleaning mistake is using a floor stripper that is simply too strong for the floor to withstand. The reality is, improperly diluted floors can lead to harmful damage to your commercial floors.
A Lack Of Dwell Time
When you have improper dwell time, your floor could end up suffering. The reality is, when you don’t allow the chemicals to properly get into the flooring itself, you could end up making a situation a lot worse for your commercial floors. When using chemical strippers, it’s important to allow for adequate dwell time. Otherwise, the floor stripper simply won’t be able to remove the finish effectively or efficiently.
There is nothing worse than having damaged commercial floors. Avoiding some key mishaps when waxing and stripping commercial floors can alleviate costly repairs to your commercial business in the long run.
