How to Clean & Maintain Concrete Flooring, Windham, Connecticut

If you have a concrete floor, you know that it offers some stylistic, hygienic, and practical advantages. But you may be unsure about its maintenance and cleaning requirements. Some cement floors are easier to clean than others. For instance, floors with saw-cut patterns can trap dirt and make it difficult to clean. But overall, cement flooring maintenance is much easier than most other kinds of flooring. Builder’s Concrete East of Windham, can deliver you ready mix concrete for your concrete floor you want to install.

For general cleaning, a daily sweep and a weekly wipe-down with warm water are usually sufficient. But now and then, your concrete floor may need more attention. There are many gentle cleaning options you can go with, like a warm solution of water and dish soap. Don’t use ammonia or vinegar on finished cement as these solutions can damage it. If you need a stronger cleaning solution, you can also check with your flooring contractor to learn what cleaning solution they recommend.

ConcreteIf you have an unfinished floor but want to protect it from staining and wear, try sealing it. There are several great options when it comes to film-forming sealants. Not only do these sealants protect your flooring and make it easier to clean, but they can also enhance its appearance. Be sure to finish off with a top layer of floor finish or wax. This will make it even more impervious to scuffing and stains.

In areas with high-traffic, use rugs and carpets to minimize wear and tear. Check with your contractor about cleaning and maintenance scheduling so you can have a great-looking and long-lasting concrete floor.
