When stripping floors the key is a good alkaline based stripper something with an 11 ,to 13 the PH scale work well with HOT WATER . the hotter the water the easier the strip.
I recently stripped a terrazzo floor and had a good stripper and 160 degree water, using an auto scrubber we stripped 5000 sq.ft. in 3 ½ hours

We use a waterbased stripper to remove wax from stone, in conjunction with a stripping pad (black) on a floor machine. Unless you remove the wax first, honing will not be effective.

Reason for this question is I have been asked to use a non-abrasive stripper to remove wax prior to honing and polishing and I don't recall this being a suggested method in my training.
Also, have any of you guys successfully bid on a government job? I am working through one right now and access was limited to one short visit of job site and Im expected to go off their plans and pictures. If any of you have had to fight a battle similar to this and have advise I would appreciate it.
Thanks and I hope all is well and business is good for everyone!
