How to Maintain Your Polished Concrete Floor
Polished concrete floor is the latest trend amongst the contractors of the world. Unlike most other floors, polished concrete doesn’t require extensive waxing, stripping, and upkeep to keep it looking in good condition. However, every type of flooring requires some sort of care and maintenance. Though polished concrete involves very little maintenance, several techniques and steps can be used to increase the lifespan of your floor.
- Use a microfiber pad to clean the floor and remove the dirt particles from micro digs. Concrete has soil as its ingredient, which functions as an abrasive and attracts the dust particles. When dust accumulates, this may ruin the shine and clarity of your concrete floor.
- During a wet wash of the concrete floor, ensure you can use clean mops and clean water. Commercial buildings may choose to use automatic floor scrubbers.
- If the floor sees heavy traffic and a high amount of dirt, it is recommended to make sure of a neutral floor cleaning in wet mopping the concrete floor. Using plain water may not always remove all dust particles from the floor.
- Wash stains and spills as soon as you notice them. They can be absorbed by the concrete surface if left sitting for too long.
- Only use a pH neutral material as a cleaning solution. Avoid using ammonia, citrus cleaner, bleaches, pine-based cleaners, and vinegar.
- Typically, you should renew polishing of concrete floor after every two years. This can be done by professionals at restoration.
