Our wood ﬂoor wax removal service is perfect for homeowners who want to remove buildups of wax residue and restore their hardwood ﬂoors. Using store bought wax/oil/acrylic based cleaners and rejuvenator products will make your ﬂoors appear darker and unattractive over time. Unfortunately, most of the store-bought hardwood surface treatment products leave a heavy residue accumulation behind.
Such products tend to attract dirt, grime, and bacteria. Eventually, the buildup darkens the ﬂoors, also making them more susceptible to scratches and staining. Thankfully, Elite Floor Care offers an incredible solution to this problem! In addition to removing the wax from the ﬂoors, we clean them thoroughly. For ﬂoors with years of wax and residue layer build up, we highly recommend that your ﬂoors be screened and recoated once the wax has been removed. This is because we must be more aggressive in removing the years-worth of residue and, as a result, your ﬂoors may look cloudy and lack sheen. We understand how important your ﬂoors are to the value of your home.
