Frequently Asked Questions
What is spray burnishing?
Burnishing is an important factor in hard floor maintenance. It is used on floors that have been coated with metallic floor polish. Spray burnishing involves spraying a mixture of water and floor finished onto the hard floor then buffing those areas.
Hard floor spray burnishing techniques aim to remove dirt and give the floor a glossy shine.
What rotary floor machine speed should I use for hard floor spray burnishing?
High speed floor machines are better for spray burnishing, polishing and buffing. The machine speed between 300 and 450 RPM is ideal for spray cleaning, where you require a cleaning action on the floor and require a polished appearance upon completion.
It is vital to check the manufacturer’s instructions for the machine you are operating to ensure that you are using the machine correctly and safely.
What type of pad do I need for hard floor spray burnishing?
Different floor pads have different purposes and not all pads can be used with every type of floor. You need to ensure that the pad type must be compatible with the floor buffer. Understand the floor type, cleaning machine and the colour of pad to efficiently burnish the floor.
Colours may vary based on the manufacturer. So, always check with the manufacturer before using a floor pad on a floor.
What safety measures should be taken before spray burnishing?
The area should be reasonably clean. The floor should have already been dust mopped, and should be clean of any rubbish or residue. The burnishing machine should be inspected to ensure it is operating properly, and proper PPE should be worn for any cleaning chemicals being used.
