Hey folks, I’m new here, found this forum as I’ve been fighting with a school building for almost three weeks on a job that would normally have taken a week or so, and I need advice. I was contracted to strip and wax all of the classroom floors, and after speaking to a facility manager from the school system they have no records of the floors ever having been stripped. The current wing of the school was built in the 90’s. There’s been 2-4 coats of wax added about every 2 years or so for as long as the manager could remember, they’d use a cleaning solution and green cleaning pad on the buffer, then slap more wax down. I’ll attach pictures of what I’m dealing with, but for a description I’m literally having to take a scraper to the floor in these rooms, removing multiple gallons of semi-congealed wax from these rooms. The current rooms are extremely small at about 420sq foot per room, and I’m getting 3-4 gallons of congealed wax up, not to mention the standard slurry. Has anyone else run into this kind of thing before, and is there any advice you can offer? Im already losing money on the job, just interested in getting it done right and more quickly now.
