Most Asked Questions

Finish Line Floor Care recommends that we do some type of service once per month, but rather than doing a strip and wax every time, we choose the service that makes sense based on budget and the condition of the floor.

If you have a heavy traffic area, you should strip and wax once in 3 months to 6 months. If the floor has still lots of shine, but only some scratches and scuff marks, you do not need to strip and wax again.

It’s simpler than you think. Following a regular maintenance schedule, sweep or vacuum to remove dirt, grit, or dust that could scratch or be ground into the surface of the floor. Periodic damp mopping is also recommended. For more detailed maintenance instructions, please ask a member of our team after your service.

No. In many cases they are as easy or easier than non-waxed floors. The advantage of waxing is really seen in the cleaning and maintaining process- what used to take several different products and cleaning tools, will only require one- a simple wet mop, for example.

No. When moving or rolling heavy pieces of furniture or appliances, use protection, such as strips of 1/4″ hardboard as a runner under the wheels or legs. Always move items with caution!

Easy Answer: Dust Mopping. It removes various abrasives like sand, dirt, and dust. Consequently, the less these particles are on the floor, the longer the shine and finish will last. As a general rule, dust mopping should be performed at least once a day. In high traffic areas, it should probably be performed several times a day. For example, most school hallways are dust mopped many times during the course of the school day. Another easy way to cut down on abrasives is to simply put walk off mats at the doors. These will catch much of the dirt that is tracked in on people’s shoes.

Several different companies as well as your local hardware store offer a variety of felt protector pads to use in place of the hard metal or plastic buttons that are placed on the legs of furniture. You should use these on all the legs of the furniture to prevent damage to the floor.
