Waxing of Stone and Terrazzo Floors Can be Precarious, April 9th, 2014
Even though they may be professionals in the business, an estimated 1 out of 3 property managers don’t understand the difference between waxing and professional polishing.
Wax gets into the grout lines and does not allow vapors to ventilate. Moisture can get trapped and produces oxidation or other damage, like staining, and if not stripped thoroughly, leaves a white crusty look in the grout lines.
Furthermore – the edges near walls and other tall areas, attract dust, pollution, and airborne particles to walls (like gravity in “Cosmos”), thus landing eventually on (or in) the wax residue left by incomplete stripping at the edges.
The vast majority of professional managers now polish naturally, environmentally friendly and green.
