Tips on Buffing and Burnishing Commercial Floors
Always clean the floor before any buffing operation. Even light accumulations of soil quickly become embedded into the floor finish when burnished.
With softer finishes, fresh coats may show swirl marks and scratches when buffed. Use a softer, less aggressive buffing pad for several days until the finish has fully cured.
Use a restorer such as a spray buff, mop-on restorer or polishing creme. These restorers keep the floor finish supple and enhance the slip resistance to the floor finish all while filling minor scratches to yield a high shine.
Change and clean buffing pads frequently. As they pick up floor finish, dirt and other materials, they become less effective and create excess drag on the buffing machine.
Thoroughly sweep or dust mop the floor once complete. If time allows, follow up with a damp or wet mop with a synthetic neutral floor cleaner.
These important procedural steps will keep floors looking good day in and day out prolonging floor scrubbing and floor stripping intervals.
