Wood Cleaning and Waxing
I do not use any chemicals in the wood cleaning and waxing process. I start with the square scrub with an STF pad attached. This usually takes off about two coats of wax as well as any finish and dirt. I then rinse and use a high pressure wash. After that I will mop and sweep one more time before applying the acrylic, water based wax. I use a 28% solid wax and apply at least three coats to the wood. Each coat takes approximately thirty minutes to dry. After the last coat is applied, the floor will be able to be walked on within the hour.
