Concrete Polishing, Floor Cleaning, Waxing & Stripping
Why Do Concrete Floors Deteriorate?
1. USING THE WRONG CLEANERS (CHEMICAL ABRASION)
Cleaners that are used on VCT, linoleum and other hard surfaces may be too stringent for polished concrete floors and will eventually etch the floors, in other words, reduce the shine. Today, many facilities are installing polished concrete floors while not updating their janitor closet with the correct floor cleaning chemicals. Many think that using a neutral cleaner will not harm their concrete floors, and that is incorrect. Polished concrete floors are an alkaline surface so they will react negatively with a neutral cleaner. Continual use of a neutral cleaner will leave a haze or film on the surface, which will reduce the shine.
2. ABRASION (SCRATCHES)
Constant foot traffic, forklifts, pallet jacks and shopping carts are always picking up foreign dirt and soil and then redistributing these soils throughout the floor. The tiny dust and dirt particles lead to scuffing and sheen deterioration. Also, using the wrong brushes or pads for cleaning the polished concrete floors will lead to even quicker shine loss.
3. NEGLECT (NO MAINTENANCE PLAN)
Dirt and debris will quickly abrade the surface of a polished concrete floor, causing a dulling effect and harming your investment. Neglecting dust mopping throughout the day, not having the proper placement and correct floor mats in place, using the incorrect floor cleaning chemicals and not having a standardized maintenance plan in place will all lead to deterioration.
