Strip and wax is a process of cleaning the floor that involves stripping off the old finish and then applying wax to create a new, glossy finish.
The strip and wax process is what most people would know as a traditional or old-fashioned way of cleaning floors. The process can be done by hand, or by machine. It usually takes a couple hours per room, and it’s best to do it over two days because when you strip off the old finish, it takes some time to dry before you apply the new one.
This method is not recommended for living areas as it often leaves behind an unpleasant smell or residue on furniture. Strip and wax should be reserved for hardwood floors in very high traffic areas such as hallways, stairwells, lobbies etc.,

Types of equipment required for Strip and Wax Floor Cleaning
There are several types of equipment for wax floor cleaning. The most common is the rental machine that can be rented from an office supply store. There are also waxing machines that are sold commercially.
These machines are electrically powered and heated and come with a hand-held applicator or a tank to put the liquid wax in and then apply it to the floor.
A shoe polisher is another option for waxing floors, which is more labor intensive but does not use any chemicals.
The Importance of Stripping and Waxing Floors
If you have never stripped and waxed a floor, you should know that it is not as simple as it sounds. There are a lot of considerations one has to take before starting, such as whether the floor is sealed or unsealed and whether or not the floor is laminate.
Whether you are trying to sell your home or just want to maintain your floors, stripping and waxing them will keep your home looking great for years to come.
