Waxed floors and staircases can accumulate significant amounts of wax, which causes a yellowish discolouration. This buildup of wax – combined with deep scratches, wear and tear, and abrasions – acts as a magnet and attracts more dirt.

However, a well-polished and waxed staircase with a smooth finish can easily be cleaned with a mop rather than a broom. Indeed, we recommend avoiding the use of a broom for removing dirt from floors. It’s therefore essential to rely on seasoned professionals, such as the team at L’Artisan du Plancher Montréal, to give your floor or staircase back its beauty.

Staircase stripping service

A staircase may have been painted or varnished, or even waxed. If you want to change the coating, it’s possible to strip the staircase to make it bare again.

Stripping a staircase can be done in two ways:

1/ Using a chemical stripper. This can even be done by a beginner. Allows for deep stripping.

2/ Using a thermal stripper. This type of stripping is reserved for experienced artisans, since applying the nozzle of the stripper to the same spot for too long risks damaging the wood. Your stairs must be maintained and protected appropriately to preserve their lustre. The highly qualified team of artisans at L’Artisan du Plancher Montréal boasts suitable tools and high-tech equipment as well as unparalleled know-how to carefully carry out the stripping, blasting, and complete dust-free sanding of wooden staircases of all types.

The charm of your wood staircase is incomparable, but the look of your staircase changes over time. To help your house rediscover its charm, you have the option of renovating your damaged wood staircase. While the task may seem difficult, it’s not impossible to renovate and glaze a staircase yourself. So follow our staircase renovation tips!

Stripping and sanding your staircase according to industry standards

The first step to renovating a staircase is to strip and sand the wood. In effect, any staircase coating or glazing requires a perfectly smooth surface; otherwise, it won’t adhere. You’ll also need to clean the layers that cover the wood, if necessary.

L’Artisan du Plancher Montréal offers a cleaning service suitable for all types of environments.
