Are You Caring for Your Polished Concrete Floors the Right Way?

 Are You Caring for Your Polished Concrete Floors the Right Way?

Pol­ished con­crete is a phe­nom­e­nal floor­ing option for a vari­ety of facil­i­ties, both com­mer­cial and indus­tri­al.

Why? Here are a few of the key benefits:

  • Low-main­te­nance
  • Attrac­tive, high-gloss, dust-free finish
  • No coat­ing appli­ca­tion means that the turn­around time is speedy com­pared to oth­er floor sys­tem installations
  • Extreme­ly durable, thanks to our treat­ment of the sur­face with a sil­i­cate based con­crete densifier

The list above is fan­tas­tic, there’s no doubt about it. But, you may have noticed that we said low-main­te­nance,” not no main­te­nance.” Just as with any sur­face, invest­ing the time in prop­er­ly car­ing for your pol­ished con­crete floor will help it to deliv­er a max­i­mum performance.

What Should Pol­ished Con­crete Main­te­nance Include?

The biggest risk that your floor faces is abra­sion. You could real­ly call it the kryp­tonite of a pol­ished con­crete sur­face, dulling and dam­ag­ing the care­ful­ly-achieved shine. The good news, how­ev­er, is that it’s rel­a­tive­ly easy to min­i­mize this dam­age, set­ting your floors up for a long and healthy life.

  • Dai­ly dry mop­ping of the sur­face with a microfiber mop is ide­al, col­lect­ing any abra­sive media.
  • Clean up any spills quick­ly, avoid­ing permeation.
  • If you use a wet mop on your pol­ished con­crete, use a neu­tral clean­ing prod­uct (nei­ther too acidic or too alka­line) to help sus­pend the dirt and dust with­out dulling the surface.
  • Clean small­er sec­tions at a time, ensur­ing that the clean­ing prod­uct you use doesn’t stand too long and begin to dry. This sys­tem­at­ic method is also help­ful for mak­ing sure no spots are missed!
