June 2, 2005: Wax up GOF house
|Today is a working day for waxing up the floor of GOF house. Before the work, we sang a hymn and then reconfirmed the step.|
|Only the first floor will be waxed today. All the small items on the floor were moved aside.|
|Then we cleaned up the floor by the cleaning machine.|
|The next step was to wipe up the floor with tightly squeezed mops. The dirt should be removed thoroughly.|
|Then we polished the floor with dry mops.|
|In the end, non-woven cloth was used to remove dust by electrostatic effect.|
|Water wax was then resolved in a bucket to dip the mops. The waxing started at last.|
|The knack was to wax the corners and edges of the room then paint the wax perpendicular to the veins of the board. We took a break until the first wax was dried up.|
|Today, the weather was rainy unfortunately. We started the air conditioner to dry position and waited for about 30 minutes. During the drying, we enjoyed a snack and chatting.|
|The leader of today's waxing, Ms. Inoue, wears such an interesting cloth which was good for knee down work.|
|After checking the floor condition, we started the second waxing work. This time, we waxed parallel to the floor board.|
|And then we dried the room using the air
conditioner. The floor was shining beautifully at last.
All the mops were washed up. We took lunch after the work.
