POLISHED CONCRETE CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Polished concrete offers a high-performance surface with low maintenance; however, these surfaces do require some common sense and routine care & maintenance. It is difficult to judge the amount of cleaning and maintenance required for each individual floor. The following acts as a guide only.
Routine Care & Maintenance
Surfaces should be dry mopped daily using a microfiber applicator pad. Dirt and dust can act as an abrasive when tracked across polished concrete which can cause the sheen and clarity of the surface to deteriorate over time.
Surfaces should be wet mopped once a week with warm water. It is important that the mop and water itself is clean throughout cleaning process. The mop head should be periodically rinsed when soiled and water changed out when it becomes dirty. In commercial buildings, automatic floor scrubbers can be used to clean the floors. Mop and bucket cleaning can be used for smaller areas.
Surfaces should be wet mopped once a fortnight to a month with a pH neutral cleaner as per the instructions on the cleaning product container.
The use of polished concrete cleaning products specifically formulated for the sealer applied will provide an even better clean and will rejuvenate the sealer.
Do not use harsh or aggressive cleaners on your polished concrete floors as it will deteriorate the performance of the floor over time.
Spills & Stains
Polished concrete floors resist spills and stains better than most flooring solutions because of their extremely hard and dense surface characteristics. This does not, however, mean that polished concrete floors are stain proof and care should be taken to ensure all spills are wiped up as soon as possible.
Stubborn deposits (i.e. dried food) should be removed using a non-scratch implement such as a wooden spatula.
Avoid exposure to harsh chemicals and solvents as these may damage the surface of the concrete. Nail polish remover, bleach, oven cleaner, drain cleaner, permanent markers and paint strippers are all examples of products that should not come into contact with the surface of the concrete.
