Keeping polished concrete or Terrazzo flooring looking pristine can be a costly exercise because you have to constantly strip and reapply waxes. A more modern and cheaper approach however is to do away with waxing entirely and instead use an electric floor polisher. Electric floor polishers will not only save you time and money but will leave your floor looking at its very best. Floor pads and the floor brush extensions for floor polishers should be used for concrete and Terrazzo flooring.
Ceramic and quarried tile floors. 9 times out of 10 ceramic and quarried tile does not require much in the way of cleaning, in fact a simple mop will be just as good. The problem with tiles arises when after a while they start to look dull. The reason that tiles start looking dull is down to scratches appearing on their surface as their protective layer over time starts breaking down. This break down in the protective layer allows dirt to start accumulating in these scratches. This is where you will need an industrial polisher, or buffer, as these types of floor cleaners will remove the scratches from the tile, and thus the dirt with them, returning your tiles back to looking as if they have just been laid. The other area that can make your tiled flooring look dull and uninviting is not the tiles themselves as the tiles are not naturally porous and therefore don`t stain easily without scratches in them, but the grout used to secure them. This grout on the other hand is extremely porous and can be easily stained.
