When a wood floor is cleaned using traditional methods, and too much water is used during cleaning, the water can be absorbed into the wood. This can make the wood increase in size and swell which is far from ideal. Polishing a wood floor will not cause this type of swelling to occur and still keep the floor looking clean. Polishing the wood adds a protective layer to the floors surface which washing with water simply cannot. This protective layer provides an extra barrier between the wood and any future spills and general dirt build. This layer has the added benefit of reducing your long term maintenance costs as it helps to add to your floors longevity. Polishing a wood floor also has the benefit of adding a shine effect which mopping cannot. This shine effect lasts long after the floor is cleaned and provides a more professional first appearance for your business to your clients and customers.
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.
