Clean-Slate Janitorial Services Weighs in on the Importance of a Freshly Waxed Floor During the Summer

Clean-Slate Janitorial Services (, a leading service provider of commercial office cleaning in Vaughan and the Greater Toronto Area, is weighing in on the importance of keeping floors waxed and stripped during the summer months.

“Following the damage caused by snow and rain in the winter and spring, vinyl and ceramic flooring can be left looking worse for the wear,” says Sam Panousis, owner and operator of Clean Slate Janitorial Services. “And with people being more active in the summer compared to the other seasons that traffic—and the dirt and other materials that come with it—is only going to increase.”

Stripping removes all the dirt, debris, stains, and old wax that have accumulated on floors over time. It is also recommended that businesses have their floors waxed, which provides a number of benefits, such as giving the flooring a glossy shine and a cleaner look. It also makes wear and tear in high traffic areas less obvious and keeps moisture out, which is especially important during periods of summer humidity.

High traffic areas in many offices, such as reception and break rooms, tend to need waxing and stripping services the most. The combination of dust and debris, along with the harsh road salts being used by municipal crews, can cause scratches and other, deeper damage. Not only does this cause flooring to look worn out, but it also conveys a poor image to clients.

“Floor stripping can clean up all the dirt and debris that has accumulated on flooring,” Panousis concludes. “Combine this with a good waxing and a floor will look as good as new and convey a good image to customers.”
