Floor Stripping & Waxing

Floor stripping and waxing

How long has it been since your floors have been stripped and waxed? Do you need to get them done again? 

Green Clean Toronto can help you lose the layers of wax that have built up – especially in the high-traffic areas. These areas become dirty quickly and over time they get stained: This is when you need to take the time to look after your floors.


When dirt and grime accumulate on your floors, they not only begin to look dull but also the protection has been lost. When this happens and the floors may become damp – such as with spills – tiles and flooring can be quickly damaged and in need of repair. Before this happens, protect your floors by stripping them and waxing to protect them. 

Stripping and waxing commercial floors is essential for every business with a storefront or a high-traffic area. Locations like the main entrance, main aisles with traffic, cash register and exit areas of the stores are the most important, as this is where your customers will notice the cleanliness. A clean floor reflects on the cleanliness of your staff and the items you sell – customers notice how clean, shiny, safe and protected your floors are, and Green Clean Toronto can help. 

Floor stripping and waxing are essential steps in commercial floor care. It's generally recommended to be done once per year, but this will also depend on different factors, such as foot traffic and location.

Whenever in doubt, call us for an assessment of your floor's condition.

Green Clean Toronto's Floor Treatment Applicator Qualifications:

Green Clean Toronto specializes in floor treatment applications for over 10 years. Our stripper applicator crew will depend on the size of the project and the job being requested. Typically, our crew is from 2 to 4-person job, with 1 person applying the solution ahead of the auto-scrubber, 1 person running the auto-scrubber, and 2 persons operating the mops and buckets to pick-up dirty solution residues left behind the auto scrubber, and to rinse the floor prior to applying the finish.

Prior to beginning the work, Green Clean Toronto's crew will supply detailed instructions for maintaining, preserving, and keeping the floors clean. We also provide adequate warning for maintenance schedules, and advice of detrimental materials to floor treatment.

• Six mop head and handles

• Soak new mops for 24 hours

• Two clean dust mops

• We usually recommend that stripping the floors should not commence for a week or more after installation of new  tiles to ensure that they are laying flat and are fully adhered to the substrate.

• For the best floor results we recommend to burnish floor 24-hours after final application.
