Maintaining your Polished Concrete Floor is really easy and simple as it only involves, cleaning of dust, mopping and weekly buffing. Following the procedure of maintenance will only lead to increased life of your polished floor. Given below is the standard way to maintain your floors, but it may need to be changed or altered to suit your specific requirement of upkeeping the expected gloss levels:
Cleaning the Dust - Daily
Semi-wet Mopping - Daily
High or low speed buffing - weekly
Cleaning the dust is very essential as it otherwise acts as abrasive sand paper, when it comes in contact with any kind of traffic. If the dust is not cleaned for a prolonged duration then it may form a permanent layer over the surface, which could only be removed using professional machines used by BGSB. Such situation will also lead to cancellation of warranty, thus no claims shall be entertained.
Whilst buffing your floor using Auto-scrub machine you add neutral cleaner in the ratio of 1:10. Use of detergents and other acidic cleaners is not recomended and will void warranty.
