Wax or Finish
Applying a wax or finish to a floor creates a glossy, protective layer that keeps your floor attractive, free from scratches and stains. However, over time these layers wear down or become dirty, and need to be removed before a new one can be reapplied.
Too Many Layers
Waxed floors such as linoleum or vinyl can flake or become yellow due to age or too many layers of wax. You can strip the old wax from the floor without the need for harsh, wax-stripping chemicals.
