When it comes to floor cleaning there are many terms that people often do not understand or are unsure of. Floor waxing, stripping and sealing, buffing and burnishing are some examples. When a customer calls depending on their description of their floors we decide which floor cleaning service is best for them. Below are several floor cleaning and maintenance services explained.
1. Floor Waxing
Floor waxing involves stripping your floors via a stripping solution and a stripping machine. This removes the old layer of floor finish or wax that may be scratched or stained. Once this layer is removed a new coating of wax is applied to your floors. This will make your floors shine and look bright again.
2. Buffing and Burnishing
Buffing is a short term way of making your floors shine. A buffing machine will work out any surface scratches there are in the finish. This will make the floor surface flatter which gives off more glow. Buffing will also smooth out your floors reducing the chances of a slip and fall accident. Burnishing is basically the same process as buffing just at a higher speed for more damaged and scratched floors.
3. Floor Washing
Sometimes a simple floor washing may be what is required. Floor washing is generally done on a regular basis to prolong the need of other floor cleaning and maintenance tasks. Floor washing will help remove small dirt particles that if not cleaned up will scratch floors and make them lose color.
