Vinyl composite tile or vinyl sheet floors Strip, seal and wax: strip old wax from floor, edges of door frames and baseboards and then apply a sealer-enriched high solids wax of four to five coats. Top scrub and recoat: rough up floor surface and apply multiple coats of wax. This process is performed when there is enough wax on the floors and they have yet to turn yellow but have scratches or marks in the surface. Spray buff: damp mop floor, lightly spray mixture of wax and water and then machine buff. Our professional floor maintenance technicians are used to working with wax solids contents of 18% to as high as 30% depending on the use your floors receive or the type of facility you have. You can also choose from a low sheen finish to a wet look.
