2 scrub floor with a mild detergent and warm water.

3. Apply floor finish with micro fibre pad/ applicator 1-2 coats 30 minutes apart. The process of applying the finish take so little time ,allow about 15-20 minutes to apply finish over 1000 sqft. once the floor has been cleaned.

The whole issue of maintenance can be minimized by controlling grit. Use walk off matts at critical entrance ways and have them cleaned regularily .Ideally, mats should be place at the entrance and especially with commercial building that have street curb access. Another important area needing attention is in restraunts where the kitchen floor meets the public area, this floor area needs a matt to collect grease, and should be changed frequently .
