Stripping and Waxing
Stripping and waxing refers to the removal of existing wax on a floor and applying new wax. Wax is also known as ‘finish’. This is accomplished by using a mop to apply the stripper, and allowing this to sit for up to fifteen minutes. We then use our low-speed buffers with an abrasive pad to remove, or strip, the wax. This ‘mess’ is then vacuumed up and the process repeated again, until all the old wax has been removed. Once the floors have been completely stripped, they will be washed to remove any remaining wax or particles and to ensure the floor is spotlessly clean ready for the application of new wax. As you can see, this is a very time-consuming procedure; however the results are simply amazing.
As you can see, we are experienced, knowledgeable, and qualified in all types of floor maintenance and cleaning, however our specialty is in VCT (Vinyl Composite Tile) floor repair and restoration. The best way to be really proud of your facility is to have Oxy-Genie come in and restore your VCT floor back to life; by stripping, waxing, buffing and burnishing. Floor buffing maintains the beautiful luster on your floors: once you’ve had this procedure done on your floors you’ll wonder why you waited so long, because it really does look amazing!

Floor Stripping: What Is It?
Floor Stripping means stripping a hard floor of its existing finish. This means the removal of old soil, wax, and debris on the floor. Floor stripping can be a very time consuming and labor intensive job. There are a few necessary steps in the process of floor stripping, and below we’ve listed some of the equipment required to complete this task in either your home or a commercial area in Calgary.
- Automatic or Rotary Floor Scrubbers;
- Double Speed Ground Buffers;
- Floor Stripper Neutralizer;
- Solution for Floor Stripping;
- Ground Stripping Pads;
- Hand Pads plus Holder;
- Floor Buffer Shampoo Tank;
- Blowers for Floor Drying;
- Wet Pick-up Vacuum;
- Safety Supplies and Garbage Bags;
- Appropriate Work Safety Boots;
- ‘Wet Floor’ Signs.
How Is Floor Stripping Done?
To begin with, everything must be removed from the area you will be working on. All chairs, tables, lamps, rugs, and other items that sit on the floor must be removed so that you’re working on a bare canvas.
In a commercial space ensure that the area concerned is barricaded off with appropriate signage to prevent anyone walking on the surface, and to fulfil legal safety requirements.
Remove all debris from the area being treated. Prepare and apply the stripping solutions exactly as detailed on their labels. Collect all debris after scrubbing and ensure you do this immediately - before it dries on the floor. Wash and dry the floor until all the stripping solution has been removed from the floor. Please note that this is an abbreviated description of floor stripping, and in reality the whole process is very time consuming and a lot of hard work.
Alternatively, Call the Professionals!
Yes, you certainly can do floor stripping yourself, but to save yourself a lot of work and time you can also contact your local professional floor stripper to carry out this work for you. If it’s a large area of floor that requires stripping it’s highly recommended that you get professional help. You’ll save yourself a lot of time and effort, and you’ll find that our rates are very affordable.
Why not let us be responsible for the safety required and the quality of work performed? Remember that floor stripping can be a very messy and dusty job! We’re the professionals and this is what we do: we’ve got all the right up-to-date equipment, plus we know exactly what stripping agents to use on different kinds of floors.
