We receive more questions about floor care than nearly any other cleaning or janitorial task. In this blog post, our experts tackle three of the most common floor care questions we are asked.

What can I do to make my floors look extra shiny?

The best way to make your floors shine is to evenly apply a high quality, clear floor finish. These finishes reflect more light, making the floor look shiny. Keeping your floors clean and refinishing when needed can also help them look their best for longer because finishes can become worn down or soiled over time after exposure to foot traffic.

I put several coats of finish on my floor, but I’ve noticed more floor traffic marks than ever before. What’s going on?

Applying too many coats of floor finish too quickly can interfere with the drying process and cause moisture to become trapped between coats. In the future, you can prevent this issue by performing a simple test between coats. Toss a tissue on the floor, then step on it with your foot. If the tissue sticks to the floor or tears, the finish has not yet dried and you should wait before applying another coat.

What can I do to reduce static electricity on my floors?

This shocking phenomenon can be prevented by following a few simple steps. As you apply floor finish, wear shoes with thin leather soles, increase the humidity in your environment, and mop the floors with an antistatic liquid to finish off the process. The antistatic liquid may need to be applied frequently to provide the best performance.
