|Polished concrete floor in an Army base warehouse|
Dirt is the enemy of a polished concrete floor. Here are some things you need to be doing to maintain the look:
· Use walk-off mats
Clean floors when they are dirty. Dirt is an abrasive and can ruin the shine of a polished floor. And the best methods of removing dirt:
· Wet mopping with a neutral cleaner
Using only water to clean leaves much of the dirt on the floor . . . and dirt is abrasive. Give the cleaner time to loosen the dirt but don’t let it dry on the floor.
The more you scrub and clean, the harder and denser the polished concrete floor becomes . . . and that’s good!
