Polish or Wax Floors

Why Do It?

Polishing and waxing your floors has a number of benefits. Not only does it boosts the beauty of your floors, it also prolongs flooring life and increases stain resistance.

What to Do?

Step 1: To start the process, swept the entire floor with a fine-bristled broom. The idea is to remove all the dirt particles that are on it. You can also use the vacuum cleaner instead of the broom if what you want is to avoid damaging it.

Step 2: Use the best wax: Now moisten a floor cloth in a bucket with the product diluted in a little water and cover the entire surface of the floor. Do it calmly and do not leave spaces or corners uncleaned. If the bucket with the solution gets too dirty, you need to change it.

Step 3: Wait a few minutes while the surface dries: remember that the drying time depends on the weather conditions where you are and the amount of cleaning solution you use. Rinse the floor with a completely clean mop. This way, any traces that are left of the cleaning solution will be eliminated.
