Floor Strip and Wax Horror Story
by: Paul

This busy Fort Lauderdale hardware store had just had their floors stripped and waxed two weeks before they called All County Maintenance to the rescue. The strip and wax service performed by the previous company was not a bargain ($4,000) and the floors went from shinny white to black in less than two weeks.

The owners of the hardware store called All County Maintenance to weigh in on the situation; they were very upset and wanted our professional opinion.

After careful analysis of the hardware store's floor, our team concluded that the wax had been applied improperly and that the service provider used the wrong kind of wax to perform the job. The cleaning agent provided and used to maintain the floor created a chemical reaction with the wax causing the floor to turn black.

Our recommendation was to have the floor re-striped and waxed by the previous company as the expense of hiring All County Maintenance at this time would not make sense without attempting to have them rectify the situation. We also recommended a weekly scrub and buffing, monthly scrub and recoat, and an annual stripping and waxing.

Hiring the wrong company to take care of your floors can end up being very costly and disturbing to your business (no one wants their customers to see black floors). Our experience and know how allow us to deliver quality service at the right price, which will save you time, money and unnecessary worries.
