Congrats! You made the decision to strip and wax your floor. That “wet” glossy look will enhance your facility’s appearance and give a long-lasting shine to your flooring. In an effort to get the maximum return on your investment we have put together a “rule of thumb” list which will greatly help in keeping that shine lasting for as long as possible. Hopefully, you will find them useful. As usual, your Interworld representative is on standby to assist you with any questions or concerns that you may have.


  • Make sure to lay rugs (if you haven’t done so yet) at the entrance doors (inside and outside) – to keep dirt, mud and salt out as it can cause damage and become embedded into the wax. Interesting fact -“You need 12 to 15 feet of matting at the door to stop about 80 to 85 percent of the dirt.”
  • Have the rugs swept / vacuumed daily and changed out weekly


  • No-Harsh Chemicals (such as bleach, Fabuloso and etc) at any point as they can deteriorate the wax
  • Sweep floors as often as it can be, at least 1 x per day
  • Use PH Neutral Floor Cleaners to mop the floors
  • Mop the floors at least 1 x per day while changing the mop head regularly
  • Avoid cross-contamination when possible by refiling the mop bucket several times during each service
  • Pick up right away any water/liquid spills to prevent potential liability and corrosion of the floor finish


  • Scrub floors with neutral ph cleaners using auto-scrubber at least 1 x per week
  • Make sure the auto scrubber has correct scrubbing pads


  • Spray Buff or Rejuvenate using correct floor product to bring back that wet glossy shine


  • Top scrub to remove any scuffs/stains/scratches and/or marks that are on the floor
  • Apply at least 2 coats of new floor finish to protect the floor
