While concrete floors are very durable, they do require care. Regular daily care is relatively easy, which is why they are such a good choice over the many flooring options available. Routine cleaning requires using proper methods, including strictly adhering to the use of ph-neutral products and cleaning up spills. Dust mopping to remove debris. followed by using a clean microfiber mop head, water, and a ph-neutral cleaning product are the standard cleaning instructions. Having your concrete floors professionally cleaned and maintained on a regular maintenance schedule (depending on the traffic of a home or business) is always recommended. By following the best practices for maintaining your concrete floors, you will be rewarded with long-wearing, beautiful concrete floors for years to come.

Over time, concrete floors can lose their luster, depending on how they’ve been cared for, the maintenance they’ve received, and how heavy the traffic patterns are. Kitchens, entrances, main hallways, and bathrooms tend to show wear first. Higher-traffic home and business owners oftentimes wait until these areas become stained and completely worn before they consider restoring their floors to their once-beautiful appearance. By this time, the floors have become unsightly, but that doesn’t have to be the case. With proper maintenance, your concrete floors can continue to sparkle. 

Waiting until your floors are stained and damaged can be a costly endeavor to restore. While keeping polished floors professionally buffed, reapplying a proper sealer, or applying a proper floor finish to sealed and coated concrete floors can greatly reduce the amount of damage inflicted. Concrete sealers and floor finishes are considered sacrificial or wearable barriers between your actual concrete floor and the surface. Maintaining this layer helps protect your concrete flooring from everyday abuses, such as scuffing and spills.

The surface of polished concrete floors, just like any other flooring option, can begin to look worn over time. As this occurs the pores of the concrete begin to open up, allowing particles of dirt, lime from hard water, and spills to penetrate. This can cause staining, particularly in kitchen and bathroom areas. Buffing and closing up those pores not only restores the luster but also helps protect the concrete floor. This is true for natural concrete, as well as stained concrete flooring. 

Concrete floors that have been chemically treated, meaning they received a floor sealer or coating instead of being mechanically polished, may be maintained by two methods. The least costly method is to have them professionally cleaned, followed by the application of a floor finish or wax. As seen in the photo above. This procedure will not repair deep scratches and stains but will provide a cosmetic revival of the floor’s beauty. This can be done several times before having to strip the floors mechanically to start over with a clean surface. 

The next method requires mechanically grinding the floor to remove discoloration or worn faded or damaged stain and failing sealers, that can not be improved by using a floor finish or wax. This is commonly seen in  floors that have gone years without receiving any maintenance, perhaps was installed improperly, or the products used during the installation were not quality commercial-grade products. Sometimes the deteriorating condition of concrete floors is caused by damage such as a leaking pipe or  simply the use of caustic chemical cleaning products, that over time spoil the sealer, coating, and even the stain.

Commercial Concrete Floor Maintenance

Commercial concrete floor maintenance is an important component to keep in mind for any business. Having your concrete floors professionally maintained throughout the year gives you peace of mind, knowing your space is not only aesthetically pleasing but also ensures the longevity of your flooring and the safety of your staff and patrons. 

A well-maintained Concrete Floor will save money over time because it won‘t require costly resurfacing, restoration, or expensive repairs. Concrete floors are considered a continuous flooring system. Making spot repairs not only reduces the consistent appearance but is virtually impossible to repair properly. Matching textures and stain colors is not always as easy as it may seem. Differences in products and finding compatibility are critical. Failure to do so can cause a small troublesome area to become a very big problem.

We set the standard by evaluating your concrete floor’s condition, and then provide a plan of action to best meet your budget and your concrete flooring goals. Various methods may be recommended, such as

  • Monthly, Quarterly, or Annually Cleaning and Buffing
