Do This to Clean and Shine your Concrete Floors
We suggest you use a dry micro fiber dust mop as much as you want. This will clean up loose debris and dust.
Use an Auto Scrubber or mop with a neutral PH Cleaner, like Prosoco® Consolideck® LSKlean Ultra. You can use this 1-2 times a week to clean and degrease your floor. Fit your Auto Scrubber with a 3000 grit Diamond Impregnated Hogs Hair Pad to help maintain and shine the floor.
The floor can be reburnished at any time to bring back the shine, but typically this process only needs to be done every 3-5 years. Call us when you need your floor reburnished. It only takes 1-4 hours depending on the amount of floor.
Don’t Let the Other Trades (like the painters) Do This
Leaving tape on a polished concrete floor can and will damage the finish on the floor. There is an acid in the adhesive in tape that will etch the concrete and leave a permanent mark on the floor. The mark can only truly be fixed by regrinding and polishing the affected areas.
