You just got your new polished concrete floors and are wondering how to clean them and keep them looking brand new for longer.
Cleaning polished concrete is not difficult at all; in fact, this is one of the reasons polished concrete is utilized in so many commercial and industrial settings.
Step 1: Sweep or vacuum the floor to remove any loose material; this prevents material from being trapped in your cleaning equipment or mop and causing damage to the floor.
Step 2: Walk around the floor with a floor scraper, looking for anything that may be attached to the floor, and scrape it off. For example, if you are cleaning a warehouse polished concrete floor, chances are you will find stickers from sticker machines that have fallen onto the warehouse polished concrete floor. Or chewing gum is a typical thing to discover attached to the floor, so use your floor scraper to scrape it away.
Step 3: Pour the appropriate quantity of eco-friendly cleaning solution into your scrubbing machine and fill the rest of the tank with warm water. There is no need for these strong cleaning compounds that are harmful to the operator's skin, let alone other individuals in the area. If you are cleaning your residential polished concrete, a bucket with warm water, some cleaning solution and a micro-viber mop will do just fine.
Step 4: Scrub the floor using a ride-on, GPS, or push-along scrubber or a mop. Go over the entire floor with your scrubbing solution at a steady pace, vacuuming as you go. Most machines have a built-in vacuum, so this is a piece of cake.
Step 5: Clean out your scrubbing machine and refill it with warm, clean water. It's as simple as having a loading dock, a hose, and a drain. Taking care of your equipment will make it more enjoyable to use. How often do we arrive at work to find a smell emanating from the loading dock, which is frequently caused by clogged drains and scrubbing machines? Cleaning out the machine and surrounding area with clean, warm water every day makes these places more pleasurable to work in.
Step 6: Scrub the entire floor once again with the scrubber and clean warm water while dragging your vacuum attachment around. Because the floor is already clean, you don't need to release much water at this point.
Step 7: Burnisher, Get out your powered or LPG burnisher and get her going. With the appropriate polishing pad, rub the concrete floor to bring out the exquisite sheen of polished concrete.
