Floor Polish & Restorer

Understanding Floor Polishing

Floor polishing goes beyond just cleaning; it's a craft that relies on the right techniques, tools, and products. Our product, Restore-eez, isn't a cleaner; it's a specialized coating that doesn't contain wax. It's a polyurethane finish that protects and enhances the floor's appearance leaving them glossy and protected against wear and tear. Before applying Restore-eez, it's essential to clean the floor thoroughly by removing built-up dirt and grime. While it won't eliminate deep scratches or scuffs, it can help conceal minor imperfections, leaving your floor looking refreshed.

Selecting the Right Products

The market is flooded with a variety of floor care products, making it challenging to find the best hardwood floor polish. The key is to look for products that not only clean but also protect and enhance the wood's natural grain without leaving harmful residues. For instance, Clean-eez Floor Polish has gained popularity for its effectiveness in restoring the luster of hardwood floors while offering protection against foot traffic and spills.

When selecting a floor polish, consider the following:

  • Type of finish: Ensure the product is compatible with your floor's finish, whether it's oil-based, wax, or polyurethane.
  • Ingredients: Opt for polishes free from harsh chemicals to keep your indoor air quality safe and preserve the health of your floor.
  • Ease of application: Look for products that are easy to apply and don't require professional equipment for a hassle-free polishing experience.

Techniques to a Perfect Shine

Achieving a flawless shine on your hardwood floors involves more than just applying polish. Follow these steps for the best results:

1. Prepare the Floor

Before polishing, it's crucial to thoroughly clean the floor to remove any dust, dirt, or debris. Use a vacuum or a microfiber mop to ensure the surface is spotless. For deeper cleaning, a gentle floor cleaner designed for hardwood can help eliminate tougher stains without damaging the finish.

2. Apply the Polish

After cleaning, it's time to apply the floor polish. Using a flat mop or applicator pad, spread a thin layer of Restore-eez Floor Polish evenly across the floor, following the direction of the wood grain. Avoid over-application to prevent buildup and ensure a smooth, streak-free finish.

3. Smooth and Dry

Once the polish is applied, allow it to dry completely before walking on the floor. For extra shine, protection and to ensure an even coat, you can apply another coat of Restore-eez to enhance the glossiness and ensure the polish is fully absorbed into the wood. No buffing required!

4. Regular Maintenance

To maintain the beauty of your polished floors, regular cleaning with a soft, dry mop is essential. Avoid using water or steam cleaners on hardwood floors, as excessive moisture can damage the wood and ruin the polish.

Why Polish Matters

Regular floor polishing is not just about aesthetics; it's an essential part of floor maintenance that offers several benefits:

  • Protection: A good quality polish provides a protective layer over the hardwood, shielding it from scratches, scuffs, and moisture.
  • Longevity: By protecting the finish, floor polish extends the life of your hardwood floors, postponing the need for more costly refinishing jobs.
  • Enhanced Beauty: Polishing highlights the natural beauty of hardwood floors, giving them a rich, glossy look that complements any decor style.
