3 Concrete Flooring Myths
Myth 1: Cement and concrete are the same.
People use these terms interchangeably, but cement is not the same as concrete. Cement is a component of concrete, along with sand, crushed stones and gravel.
Myth 2: Wet mopping with water is the best way to clean concrete.
Like other flooring types, concrete gets scuffed and soiled by foot traffic, spills and more. These floors are extremely porous unless they’ve been properly sealed, and you’ll need a cleaning solution designed just for concrete floors to make them look their best. If your using a floor machine, ask us for recommendations on our favorite solutions with low-friction lubricants. These will help you effortlessly glide the floor machine over the surface.
Myth 3: Concrete floors don’t require floor maintenance programs.
Although concrete doesn’t usually require an extensive floor maintenance program, you still need to put regular work in to keep it looking its best. If your concrete floor isn’t sealed, you’ll need to sweep or vacuum every day and use a wet mop or floor machine to clean it regularly.
If sealant and finish have been applied, your floor will need buffing and burnishing to make it shine. If you don’t have the right equipment, contact us today to learn about our rental floor cleaning equipment in Buffalo. We will work with you to deliver the right tools for the job.
