How to Get the Best Results with Stripping and Waxing Floors

To get the best results with stripping and waxing floors, you need to know what kind of flooring you have. If your surface is wood, linoleum, or tiles, use a stripping agent and wax to provide it with a nice shine. 


If you have vinyl or rubber flooring, use the stripping agent and the polish for beautiful results.

It’s also important to know what type of finish the floor has. A semi-gloss finish will need to be stripped and waxed more often than a matte finish.


Why Do You Let the Floor Get So Dirty in the First Place?

Cleaning is a chore that has been around since the dawn of time. It’s also one of the most tedious and time-consuming jobs in the world.

People can spend about ten hours a week doing household chores, which is equivalent to over 1/4th of one’s waking hours.

It can be hard to find the motivation to get out of bed and start tidying up after a long day at work or school. We must get it done for maintaining healthy relationships with our family members that we do.
Floors get dirty. They get scratched, worn, stained. But the worst part is the Wax build-ups that provide protection and shine them up.

Wax build-ups can be challenging to remove because they can stick pretty tightly. It makes it difficult to scrub off. However, with the right tools and process, you’ll be able to strip your floor’s wax in no time!


What Is the Difference Between Stripping & Waxing?

Stripping is the process of removing old paints and varnishes from furniture, such as doors and windows.


Professionals do this process by using a chemical solution that removes the previous coatings. Waxing is the coating of a substance on your floors to make them shiny and slippery. You can do it with an oil-based product like car wax or a liquid solution like floor wax.


One of the Main Tools for Stripping & Waxing Floors Process?

One of the Main Tools to use is a scraper. 


These can either be made of metal or hard plastic and are typically about 18 inches long with metal blades on the end that are angled downward to get underneath the layers of paint.


This paint scraper removes old, loose paint on the floor. It will allow you to get down to bare wood, which was your original goal in stripping your floor.


The downside of using this scraper is that it takes longer than other methods because no chemical reaction happens, so you have to keep scraping until removing all wax.



We can see that the best way to strip and wax your floor is by using a combination of wax and stripping products. It will make sure the floor is stripped and buffed to give it a beautiful shine.
