Wax and Buff

Hardwood, Linoleum, Vinyl and Tile Floors

Hardwood Wax and Buff

The old world beauty of hardwood floors maintained with wax and buffing is a delight to see. Swirsding's Floor Service is one of the very few companies to offer this service. Traditional materials are used following a time-tested process that brings the radiance of your waxed hardwood floor back to its original luster.  The process includes:
  • Vacuum and clean the floor
  • Apply paste wax by hand
  • When the wax is dry, hand buff the edges and machine buff the open areas
  • The buffing restores the wood's natural beauty and produces a warm, inviting luster.

Linoleum, Vinyl and Tile

There are many types of linoleum, vinyl and tile flooring so first a careful evaluation of your floor is done. Then a recommendation can be made on the best process to bring your floor back to its original luster. The most common steps are:
  • Totally strip all old wax from the floor
  • Deeply wet scrub the floor with a rotary machine
  • Rinse and dry
  • Recoat the floor with the appropriate finishing material for the specific type of flooring
  • High speed buffing to enhance the luster
