Floor stripping is the process of completely removing soil, debris and old wax from floors. It has long been considered a time consuming and labor intensive job. A good floor stripping machine should be able to remove the majority of old floor coverings, including linoleum, ceramics, hardwood parquet, carpet, vinyl, woven floor, roofing materials, and glue. There are various types of floor strippers available, each with their pros and cons. What are some of the benefits of using a floor stripping machine?
