How to Clean Polished Concrete Floors

If you maintain your polished concrete floor well, it will easily last you for decades. Concrete material is very resilient and with proper care, can withstand all kinds of wear and tear without sustaining much damage. At Custom Concrete Floors, we recommend that you take the steps listed below to clean and maintain your concrete floors and extend their lifespan.

Get All the Cleaning Equipment You Need

You’ll clean more efficiently if you have all of your cleaning materials organized and within easily reach. It would also be less exhausting if you don’t have to look through your cupboards for the right products. Here’s a list of things that you might need for the job:

  • A broom or a vacuum
  • A wet mop
  • A nylon brush
  • Bleach
  • Detergent or dish washer (mild)
  • Hydrogen peroxide (if needed)

Clear Your Floors

The next step is to remove all movable items from the floor so you can clean it thoroughly. Many people don’t move their furniture or clean under other heavy items. This causes dust, debris, mold, and grease to accumulate on the surface and damage the concrete. It’s a good idea to clean your floor thoroughly at least once every few months so clear the floor as much as you can before you begin cleaning.

Start Cleaning

  • Step One – Remove the layer of dust and debris from the surface. You can use your broom or your vacuum cleaner for the task. A vacuum is easier to use but the broom is more maneuverable.
  • Step Two – Once the dust is removed, examine your floor for any stubborn stains like spill marks, grease, etc. You will need to soak the stained area with warm soapy water before you use the nylon brush to scrub the surface. If the stain proves to be too stubborn, you can use bleach or hydrogen peroxide to clean it.
  • Step Three – After the stains are removes, you should mop the floor with soap water. You can use floor cleaners, dish washers, or detergents for the task. Just make sure your soap is mild enough to not harm the surface.
