I've been doing this floor every year for about 24 years. it used to take 22-24 hours on a weekend. with my new machine it took almost 18 hrs, sure is painful, but Iget good pay for it

Looks good.
Stripping and sealing flooring is tedious. Had to do it once a month in 2 buildings at a church I worked at years ago.

once a month, wow, most of mine are yearly. if there is too much wax on floor it is a freaking nightmare, I have done a couple that had wax maybe 20-30 years old, and 20 years deep!!
if I do floors with no one adding wax it is so much easier
I almost lost my cool with church guy that insinuated that I did a poor job, they might have to call someone else next time, been doing their work about 20 years, ignorant snobs at Methodist church

it came out pretty good, needs more lighting in there, why photo is yellow.
they have been in business 81 years! grandpa started before or about time of depression.
sure looks shiny, it looked pretty decent before I stripped it, except cleaning person used dirty water, dirty film on top
thanks snowy! most look good when I'm done, unless floor is messed up before I get these

I try for at least 60$ an hour, some bad jobs it's much less, after 10hrs I can hardly walk, even with new machine that saves me time.
I'm thinking of passing on deep wax jobs if they want it done all the way to floor, it can be a killer

Haven't been through Bancroft in years. From what I remember there used to be several chicken houses on the edge of town. Are they still there? I believe there is a good sized hatchery in Bancroft as well.

nope, the foundations were there for years directly across the highway from dealership, now it's gone too. might be a hog building there, lol i forget. yes Welps hatchery still sending semi trucks out. Red barn bar burnt down a good 10 years ago.
it sure looks wet, you are right, one company puts wax on so deep looks like deep sheet of water, wax is stronger if put on as thin as possible, deep, it will sooner or later get deep wide scratches in it and looks like crap, my church floor they used to do got deep scratches, stated to flake off! it was way too deep.
I took over doing our church floor, stripped n waxed it two times, then third time when still used wet method I stripped it once, then took 10" putty knife and scraped all that deep crap off, then stripped it again! took 2-3 times longer, filled small garbage can with nasty goop, hope they appreciate the donation of my extra work, my church I give them 50% off, I can't afford to donate cash so Ido the work cheap.

Wow, that's a beautiful floor!!! How slippery is it...? I would think floors like that would have a higher liability rate. I bet a person, especially older, could go down fast and hard...

lol, that was funny! swallowed snuff! actually only time floors are slippery is when using wet stripper, can't wear rubber sole shoes, you will go down or get wore out trying to not slip n fall, I used to wear neoprene sole shoes to do floors

Yup roughly 15k people attended weekly church services and thats without all the weddings, funerals and numerous other ministries that meet throughout the week.
