How to Wax School Floors
School floors get a lot of traffic throughout the school year. Therefore, the floor can become dull after a period of time. Waxing the school floors can help to make them keep their luster and look cleaner for a longer time. Waxing the floor also makes it easier to clean. To wax school floors, you will need a few basic items and the right technique. Waxes can either be nonbuff or buff. Although it is easier to use waxes that don't require buffing, wax that needs buffing provides a lasting effect.
- Clean the school floor thoroughly before waxing it. Remove chairs, tables and other school furniture. Vacuum or sweep the floor to remove dust. Wipe the floor with a wet mop and allow it to dry.
- Apply the wax to the school floor with a mop that has a sponge head, starting from the middle of the room toward the wall. Follow the manufacturer's instructions when applying the wax.
- Let the wax dry thoroughly according to the manufacturer's required time frame. Apply a second application of wax to the floor. Allow the wax to dry thoroughly and then use a clean dry mop to buff the floor to give it a shiny luster.
