Help this wannabe...

After being unemployed for over a year, I b.s.d my way into a floor tech position at a nursing home. The person who would normally supervise me quit right before I was hired and I am seriously lacking in knowledge or advice. One question I have is; do I have to strip the floor in order to wax, or can I touch up the finish after a thorough cleaning. The floor is dulling but I don't believe the finish has completely worn through. Also, there is a case of 'Phazer' floor finish that says for use with 'Phazer' equipment only. It is the only finish I can find in the facility, but there is no equipment. Can this be mop applied?

I would appreciate any and all advice. Please let me know if there is a link to answer either question.

Floor Maintenance

You don't always have to strip floors to apply finish, you could do a deep scrub then re-apply the finish. Here is a good article on maintaining floors. And having to use specific equipment with specific wax is sort of like saying you have to use only Duracell batteries.

Here's the article:
