Floor Stripping and Waxing Services
Although hardwood flooring lost popularity for a few decades in favor of wall-to-wall carpet, now it’s rare that you’ll see a home on the market without bragging that there are wood floors throughout the entire space. Hardwood floors are popular for good reason: They give a space a clean look, they are better suited for those with allergies (as with carpet, dust and debris can easily get stamped into the fibers) and they look great with almost any decorative style.
However, floor care for hardwoods is more than just a sweeping and mopping every week. In order to keep your floors healthy and beautiful in the long-term, you’ll need to get them deep cleaned and a fresh coating of wax every so often.
Kiwi Services offers stripping and waxing services for your hardwood floors that will get them gleaming, healthy and looking gorgeous once again. Here’s more information about what you can expect from our floor services.
Floor Stripping and Waxing Services—the Kiwi Way
Our experienced technicians work hard and do a great job on all types of hardwood flooring—no matter the stain color or the age of the floor—and take a lot of pride in getting your floors gorgeous. The floor stripping and waxing services that Kiwi offers are extensive and effective.
Here’s what they entail:
- A thorough cleaning
Before your tech even applies any products to your floor, they begin the floor stripping and waxing process by making sure that every surface of the floor is dust-free. It’s important that the floor has no signs of dust or debris before they begin because the stripping solution will be applied evenly and correctly the first time around.
- The stripping solution is applied
Your technician will apply the stripping solution and then use a wet-dry vacuum to remove sealers and the floor finish entirely. This is a crucial part of the process and involves a series of mop buckets and clean water. Once this part of the process is complete, the floor will be rinsed of the stripping solution entirely.
- A mopping to clean the floors before the wax is applied
To ensure the stripping solution is completely gone and to remove all other residue, your technician will mop every square inch of the flooring. Depending on how large the area is where you’re stripping and waxing, this part of the process could take about an hour to several, because they want to ensure the floor is completely dry before they wax.
- The wax is applied
Finally, your technician will apply the floor wax. This will occur in sections to ensure that each coat of wax is efficiently applied and your floors will shine and glow once again—and for many years in the future.
Kiwi Wood Floor Cleaning
Should your floors not need an entire stripping and waxing, we also offer deep cleaning services for your hardwoods. This will keep them clean and shiny in between waxing and full-on restorations that are more extensive and take more time to perform.
Our hardwood floor cleaning process consists of the following:
- A thorough evaluation of your laminate hardwood flooring, including identification of finish type and sealant used
- A cleaning and mopping to eliminate dust and dirt
- A gentle buffing, waxing and polishing to remove stains that are on the surface level and deep below the surface
We also offer commercial floor cleaning services if you are interested in getting the floors in your office building, storefront or warehouse deep cleaned.
