Five Tips for Maintaining Polished Concrete Floors

July 10, 2019 9:00 AM by Tennant Company



Polished concrete floors are gaining in popularity because they’re attractive and easy to maintain – but they do require care. Here are five tips to help keep concrete floors looking their best, without putting too much pressure on your staff and budget.

  1. Use equipment you already have. Make the most of your current machines by choosing a system like TennantTrue® Stone Care tools, which can be used on standard floor scrubbers.
  2. Keep it easy for employees. Using a system that works with equipment that your staff members use every day means there’s no additional learning curve—so the work can be accomplished efficiently.
  3. Improve your floors over time. Plan for concrete maintenance on a regular schedule, and watch for improvements with each session. In time, your floors will be smooth, shining, and easy to maintain.
  4. Decrease chemicals and dust. Concrete polishing systems work without harsh chemicals that can leave behind lingering chemical odors. Polishing without chemicals and with a low dust system makes jobs quick to perform and to clean up after.
  5. Eliminate hassles and realize savings. Save money by choosing a care system that uses your current equipment and can be performed in-house.
