General Maintenance Guidelines 

The amount of traffic your floor endures decides how much maintenance it will require. Residential floors generally require less maintenance because they don’t endure much wear and tear. Conversely, commercial floors require regular attention because of high traffic and general carelessness of visitors. Here are some tips that are applicable to all kinds of concrete surfaces.

-Floor sealer is absolutely essential for all concrete floors aside from those that are polished. The polishing process hardens the surface and makes it relatively impregnable.

-Use floor carpets or protective coverings in areas of high traffic to protect the floor from dents, marks, and scratches. It’s a good idea to place them by the entryways and foyers.

-Some of the floor cleaners available in the market are very abrasive and can damage even the most resilient of floors. We usually recommend a list of cleaners after the installation project is complete. They won’t damage the concrete or cause any sort of stains.

-We also recommend a maintenance schedule that’s specifically designed to keep concrete floors in good condition. If you follow this schedule, you will be able to keep your concrete floor looking as good as new for a long time.

-A good commercial-grade floor wax can add another level of protection to your floor and protect it from scratches, stains, and discolourations. This wax will also protect the sealer underneath and it’s easy to reapply when it wears off.

These small steps will ensure your concrete floor stays in a good condition for several years to come.
