The best way to mop polished concrete floors

Looking for the best ways in polished concrete floor maintenance? While it’s not rocket science, there are a few things to keep in mind to keep your floors in mint condition.

Whether it’s your first time or your tenth clearing the dirt and grime, we know cleaning is never fun and you want it to be as easy as possible when you have to mop polished concrete floors.

Before you go grabbing any old cleaning implements, Eco Grind has a few tips and tricks to help you sweep, wipe and mop polished concrete floors. One of the best things about polished concrete flooring is that it’s low-maintenance and highly durable, making cleaning relatively straight forward.

One of the first things to note about any floor surface is to clean up any spills as soon as they occur. Certain liquids like wine, orange juice or oil can stain or eat away at your floor surface and that’s the last thing you want.

Polished concrete floor maintenance

The easiest place to start is to remove excess dirt, dust and other loose particles by sweeping the floor to avoid any potential scratching when you do mop. It is recommended you use a microfibre pad to avoid surface damage.

How often you mop the floors also depends on how much foot traffic they see. If it’s a high-traffic area, regular cleaning is a must! When mopping use a mild cleaning solution like a polished floor cleaner or a mild detergent. It is possible to use just water, but it won’t achieve the same result as a proper cleaning solution which suspends dirt particles from the floor surface, making it easier to remove them.

Avoid using ammonia, vinegar, bleach or citrus products on your flooring as they can have a negative impact resulting in possible damage or discolouring the surface. Always use clean water and clean mops (it’s best to use a non-abrasive material) to avoid any dirt from being pushed around and sticking to your floor.

While we love how low-maintenance, aesthetically pleasing and easy to look after polished concrete flooring is, it does require some care to keep it in great condition. If not cared for properly, you face the possibility of it losing some shine and becoming dull-looking.
