What kind of maintenance is associated with polished concrete floors?
Polished concrete floors have become one of the most popular flooring systems for interior designers across the nation for many reasons, but one of those important ones is maintenance. Unlike other flooring systems, polished concrete floors do not need constant treatments and repairs; however, nothing can last without a little care.
We recommend some of the following ways to maintain your floors:
- A gentle mop or broom to remove dirt, dust, and harmful debris and use these on a daily basis. If dust or dirt accumulate for too long on your concretes surface, the shine of your floors begins to dull, and your concrete becomes less pleasant.
- When mopping does take place, it is recommended that you use a soft mop and do not scrub one area too harshly because the process can damage the coating over time.
- If your polished concrete floors are somewhere that sees heavy foot traffic we recommend daily cleaning, for hygienic purposes, but using non-acidic soaps to avoid damaging the floor’s coating.
- Cleaning your floors is important, always make sure that your cleaning agent does not contain soap because it will leave a film like a residue dulling your floors shine.
With proper and intentional maintenance your polished concrete floors will last for decades.
