What are the different colored floor buffing pads used for?

When attempting to distinguish between pad types, CleanLink.com explains, “An industry standard color-coding system for low-speed floor pads helps bring some logic to the situation. In general, moving from light to dark, least-coarse to most aggressive, are: pink, white, beige, red, blue, green and black. Buffing pads are lightest in color and remove scuff marks and dirt floors. Cleaning pads are designed to clean a little more aggressively than buffing pads, and remove dirt off a floor’s surface without removing floor finish. Depending on traffic, some technicians follow this up with burnishing, using a slightly more aggressive pad during wet or wintry weather to help get the job done in a timely manner. Slightly more aggressive than cleaning pads are scrubbing pads.”

High-speed burnishing pads are used for burnishing machines running at 1,000 to 3,000 rpm and apply more heat and pressure to the floor to remove the wax. The high-speed pads are where it begins to get a bit more complex, primarily due to the lack of industry standard for color-coding burnishing pads. 

Before choosing a floor pad, users need to determine the hardness of the finish, the frequency of care, the equipment, and the chemical being used. Ask questions. Choose a manufacturer or supplier, like CleanItSupply.com, who will educate you. The products need to work together so that labor is not wasted, since “ninety-five percent of the job is labor, and four percent is chemical. Using a wrong, cheap or inferior pad will undo the other ninety-nine percent,” says Randy Flowers, regional sales manager for ETC of Henderson.

How do you clean floor pads?

“Pads must be cleaned after every use. Do not soak pads in cleaning or stripping solution as this will break down binder over time. Use a hose with a garden nozzle with hot water to remove soils and finish from the pad. It’s important that you don’t allow soil or finish to dry on the pad. If they can’t be cleaned immediately, store soiled pads in a plastic liner bag to keep them moist until they can be properly cleaned. In addition to cleaning, departments should use proper pad driving accessories on machines. An improper or worn pad holder allows the pad to move, which may cause damage,” recommends John Miller, VP of Executive Sales and Marketing at Americo Manufacturing Company.

What is the difference between buffing and burnishing?

Hunker.com goes on to explain that buffing the floor uses a buffer machine to polish it and can be done at low or high speeds with a standard or high-speed buffing machine. Buffing the floors does restore some gloss and smoothness to them, yet it does not achieve the same wet-look shine that burnishing does.

Burnishing refers only to polishing the floors at a higher speed to produce maximum shine. The extra shiny polish is due to the burnisher machine’s much higher speed and is often done after buffing in order to achieve that wet-look finish.

Burnishing polishes a floor much faster than buffing because of its high speed and so therefore creates more shine in a shorter amount of time. While burnishing polishes floors quicker, care must be taken to apply sufficient coats of finish or else the flooring can become worn and flooring costs will skyrocket.

How do I correctly use a high-speed buffing machine?

According to ehow.com, high-speed buffing requires the use of a 350-rpm floor machine that operates in the same side-to-side manner as a standard 175-rpm buffer machine. A high-speed 350-rpm machine can be used with a spray buff chemical to enhance the floor shine. The buffer spray is to be applied right before using the pad and worked into the floor until it is dry. For best results, work side-to-side in small sections at a time to prevent the spray buff solution from drying on the floor before it can be worked in by the buffer.

How do I correctly use a high-speed burnishing machine?

New finishes have been developed that require buffing at extremely high rpms of up to 3,000 rpm thanks to advancements in polymer technology. Ehow.com explains that the burnishing process produces floors that have a wet-look finish, more so than simply buffing floors. First, dust-mop, then spray a fine mist of floor restorer is used on the floor right before using the high-speed burnisher. The machine operator will walk the burnisher across the floor in straight lines, not side-to-side like a conventional floor buffer. The more a floor is burnished, the harder the finish becomes. High-speed burnishing extends the time between stripping the finish off the floor and re-finishing it.
