Tip From The Professionals

13.11.2015

 The first step in maintaining polished floors is to take a proactive approach and protect the floor with a penetrating sealer or topical guard. Initially a sealing cote of Nova Plex or if inside NovaCryl.

 

Although polished concrete floors are extremely durable through the densification and polishing process, they will eventually lose their beautiful shine if not properly maintained, especially if they are located in high-traffic commercial or retail facilities. The good news is that while polished concrete floors are not maintenance-free, they generally are easier to maintain than other types of decorative concrete floors since they require no waxing or sealers.

 

Routine maintenance for polished floors consists of daily dust mopping to remove dirt and grime accumulation that can scratch the surface of polished concrete. Frequent wet mopping is also needed. Although only clean water can be used, you'll have greater success using a floor cleaner to suspend the dirt particles so they can be more easily removed. This type of cleaning is perfect for a neutral cleaner such as Nova 99, since a cleaner that is too acidic or too alkaline will deteriorate the concrete and dull the shine of the floor. The correct type of floor pad also needs to be used to prevent concrete surface damage such as a ‘Buff’ or white’ pad.
