Tips and Advice for Concrete Floors

General Tips & Advice

Because we know that no type of flooring is maintenance free, we have compiled a list of concrete flooring maintenance tips.

Even though our concrete floors require less maintenance than other types of floors and are easy to care for, they do require regular attention. Follow these simple rules so that your concrete floors look beautiful and keep their functionality and durability for years to come.

Good Practice

  • Clean your concrete floors regularly.
  • Remove debris from concrete floors before it causes damage.
  • Give higher frequency of maintenance and care to heavily trafficked areas.
  • Clean up all spillages immediately.
  • Remove oil and grease immediately.
  • Install spill and clean-up kits at regular locations.
  • Ensure cleaning agents are suitable for concrete surfaces – trial areas before use.
  • Follow the care instructions from your concrete floor manufacturers.
  • Remember all concrete floors need maintenance as soon as you start using them.

Bad Practice

  • Using excess concentrations of cleaning agents.
  • Mixing cleaning chemicals and agents.
  • Ignoring initial and minor joint damage – get it treated to prevent bigger issues. 
  • Using aggressive brushes on cleaning equipment.
  • Leaving brush heads in lowered position while the machine is stationary. 
  • Feathering out or using thin layers of repair materials – cut vertical and reinstate with recommended layer thickness. 
  • Using any type of acid or alkali cleaning agents – over time, it will damage your concrete floors.
