A. Amputation Floors
Stripping is the estrangement of embedded sordidness, oil, and old layers of sole shape and sealer. The arrangement wholly uprights and prepares soles for the application of new coats, sole sealers, or sole shape ( wax ). Sole amputation products are used for this point.
Supplies and equipment needed:

Do not admit the stripper to dry out on the sole. For this debate, effort in sections.
Before amputation sole shieldings (e. g. , rubber soleing), control for speciousness and representative fastness at an rebated fault. If indispensable, dilute Stripper equal more and apportion different ages using a weak established age.
Wear rubber gloves during use and enunquestioning that the capacitys to be treated are courteous ventilated. Do not ramification perceptive surfaces (e. g. , grove, metal, broken surfaces) delay the uprighting or amputation separation.
Store amputation separation in a shy, dry establish in, shut, peculiar container. Keep it locked and out of the arrive-at of posterity.
B. Sealing Floors
Sealing ensues amputation. A sole sealer-chemical is applied on the sole to save the surfaces and to act as a compact between the sole sealer and the shape (wax). Sealing helps to smoothen unshaped surfaces and scratches. It too saves the sole of other forms of sole affront thereby enhancing its arrival.
Supplies and equipment needed:
1. Prepare the sole area.
Place the forethought indication in a plain colony.
Put edibles and equipment in the sole area to be sealed.
Put pliant bag (liner) into the space bucket that is to be used for
the sealer separation, then implant sealer into the lined bucket.
Using the pliant bag liner keeps the bucket upright and keeps the
sealer from befitting polluted delay any overplus that authority be in
2. Dip the dank mop division into the bucket delay a sealer.
Wring out gently such that the mop division is wet but does not percolate.
3. Trace/outline the undiminished area to be sealed.
Start in one of the baseboards in the immoderate cavity of the capacity.
If the undiminished area cannot be out-lined precedently the sealer dries,
apportion the sealer to the sole parallel the baseboards shielding as much
of the traces/outline as likely.
4. Apportion the sealer to the sole area.
Work by sections, do a verge to verge turmoil, starting from the
immoderate cavity and emotional clumsy internal the door. Overlap the
strokes. Avoid having puddles of sealer on the sole.
5. Admit the sole to dry wholly precedently apportioning wax.
