Re Wax a Concrete Floor

We have acid stained concrete floors that were installed in a new house about 4 years ago. They were sealed with wax, the reasons were it's non-toxic and can be reapplied by the homeowner every couple years. Well, since it's been 4 years I'd like to strip the remaining wax off and reapply. Anyone here have experience doing this?

Re Wax a Concrete Floor

I just rent a buffing machine when I do my floors. Get 2 stripping pads to get the old stuff off once, then another time to "clean" it. Then buff, then wax. EHow actually has a pretty good step-by-step.

Good luck!
