    Netcom?Did you mean to say Betco? I have used Betco Express on small grocery stores i have and it seems ok but i have to strip and wax twice a year. I buff them once per week.

    Jeff, what do you mean by using the cloudiness to help with the look? Awesome job. Also I thought you had your remove all the layers of wax? You can just remove a few and reapply?

    Can you recommend Any better waxes? The Becto Express in 5 gallon bucket runs me about $135 delivered. I know Diversey make some good waxes but are very expensive and I can only charge what I charge the customer so if it's more than that it comes out of my bottom line . I can spend $250 on 5 gallons of wax and get a good wax but that's half of the cost of my job right there. Although I'm not using all five gallons even if I use half of that that's $125 out of my total cost.

    this floor had no poly coating on it, it was bare wood floors and used as a store room,,, no wax it was filthy I had to scrub it 2 times,,, when it dried it was sticky never lost the stickiness so I thinly waxed it and let the fans dry it fast when gives it a cloudy look when fan dried. I used that as a advantage to smooth out the look of the floor, then I put on a very heavy coat and walla mirror finish ! they were shocked it looked so good and wrote that 350 check, it was like an efficiency apt size... I guarantee a queen bed would swallow up most of the space in that tiny bedroom... no closet to speak of... but its near downtown so 950 a month rent

    I think a lot of NCL 5 gal buckets are in the 170 range.

    Time to give customers notice that the price needs to go up, because of the cost of materials.
