Decorative concrete is not maintenance free, there are some steps that you have to take to help your concrete floors last. View video on waxing stained concrete floors. Dust mop daily with a dry micro fiber pad. Dust mopping helps pick up loose dirt that acts as sandpaper when walking on it. Don’t use the swifter mops that squirt out detergents. Use a ph-neutral detergent with warm or cold water when mopping. These detergents can be found at Home Depot, or Lowe’s. Use floor mats to reduce the amount of dirt going on to the floor. Do not use floor mats with a rubber backing, use ones with a vinyl backing or place a old sheet in-between the rubber floor mat and the floor. Exterior concrete can be cleaned using the same ph-neutral detergent and a deck brush. Smooth exterior concrete surface’s with a film forming sealer will tend to show more water marks and dirt than sealed porous concrete.

The wax is a lot easier and cheaper to apply than re-sealing the concrete. You can find floor finish wax at Home Depot, or Lowe’s, just make sure it is compatible with sealed concrete. Be sure to follow the instruction’s on the container. If you have any questions about your floors, feel free to contact us at (210) 422-6116 .
