8 Floor Polishing Mistakes to Avoid

Floor polishing can be a great way to improve the look of your floor and make it last longer. However, there are some mistakes that people often make when they are polishing their floors. In this blog post, we will discuss seven of the most common floor polishing mistakes. We will also provide tips on how to avoid these mistakes and get the best results from your floor polishing efforts!

 

Not using the right type of floor polish for your surface

Different types of floor polish are better suited to different floors. For example, waxes are good at filling cracks and crevices but may not be as effective for hardwood floors because they leave a film behind which can collect dust over time.

Not using the right type of cleaner/stripper

If there is dirt or grease buildup from previous uses of the floor polish then this will make it difficult to get an even finish when applying new coats later down the line! The best way around this issue would be making sure that all spills and stains are cleaned up immediately after use so no residual oils remain on top of any surface being polished next morning – otherwise you’re just going to be wasting your time and money.

Applying the polish in the wrong direction

If you are using a floor polisher, make sure that you apply the polish in the same direction as the grain of the wood or tile. This will help to achieve an even finish. When polishing by hand, make sure to apply the polish in a circular motion.

Applying polish too thinly or unevenly

If the polish should be applied thicker; thin coats will not work to protect your floor or remove scratches. If you are applying it unevenly, then you may end up with areas that are not as shiny or durable as others.

Leaving the film behind

As mentioned earlier, some polishes can leave a film behind on the surface of your floor. Eventually, dust can collect on this film, and it makes your floor look duller than it did before. Make sure to read the instructions carefully so that you avoid this mistake!

Not allowing enough time for the polish to dry

This is another common mistake that people make when they are polishing their floors. If you do not allow enough time for the polish to dry, it may smudge or streak. It is important to allow a sufficient amount of time for the polish to dry before walking on it or placing any furniture back in that area!

Not letting each coat dry completely before applying another

One of the biggest mistakes people make when polishing their floors is not allowing each coat to dry completely before applying another one. If you do this, the coats will not adhere properly and your floor will not look very good.

Using harsh chemicals or unsuitable equipment

Unsuitable equipment or harsh chemicals can damage your flooring. Make sure to read the instructions carefully and only use approved products and equipment when polishing your floors!
