How Acrylic Wax Ruin your floors?

how to get wax off of hardwood floor 1696317061

Store-bought wax/oil/acrylic-based cleaners and rejuvenator products don’t protect as well as hardwood finishes like polyurethane. You have to apply them often, and that can be a hassle because the wax might get stuck in the wood grains. Accumulated layers of wax result in an uneven coating, altering the wood’s natural appearance and causing darkness. Such products tend to attract dirt, grime, and bacteria, necessitating wax removal for truly clean floors. The wax can create a slippery surface, especially when wet, posing safety hazards in areas prone to spills.

Kvadra Cleaning Services is equipped with the right solutions, equipment, and experience to address these challenges effectively. Removing old layers of acrylic wax is a demanding task, requiring specific products and specialized equipment. For extensive wax buildup, we strongly advise opting for a screening and recoating process after the removal of the wax.
