  Polishing And Burnishing Floors

With constant traffic micro abrasions can form in your floor finish.  These micro abrasions with make your floor look hazy and dull.  To remove these abrasions a high speed burnishing pad is used.  The pad super heats and micro sands the floor finish to give it a wet glossy look.


Floor Pads



The purpose of burnishing a floor is to give it a glossy shine.  A well burnished floor can make an room look cleaner and bigger.  Burnishers can range from speeds of 800 rpm's to 3000 rpm's.  Burnishing floor pads use soft fibers to smooth the floor finishes surface to a high gloss shine.

  • Scrub floor to remove dirt and debris.

  • Burnish the floor using a burnishing floor pad.

  • Dust the floor to remove micro-particles of floor finish and dust.


  • Make sure that your floor has been prepared for scrubbing.  After the floor has been prepared vacuum or dust mop the floor to remove any dust.  We recommend that you spray your dust mop with dust mop treatment to remove as much dust as possible.  Make sure to remove anything stuck to the floor because this will gum up or rip the floor pad.

  • Make sure that the floor you are burnishing does not and will not have traffic moving through it.  Use warning signs to make sure the area where you are scrubbing is marked out so that everyone is aware of it.

  • Before you burnish any area make sure that you have removed and dirt and debris from the floors surface.  An easy way to achieve this is to use a floor machine and scrub the floor using a scrubbing floor pad.  Dust mop the floor using a dust mop treated with dust mop treatment.

  • When burnishing a floor use a burnisher that rotates the floor pad at least 800 rpm.  Types of pads you should use are white, UHS or an ultra burnishing pad.  Burnish the sides of the room first then swing the burnisher side to side towards the center of the room.  Overlap your previous path by about 6 inches with the burnisher.

  • After the room has been burnished use a dust mop to remove fine particles of floor finish and dust.

  • Burnishers come in all sizes and styles and start in the $1400 range for a base model. ( National Super Service makes a wide range of burnishers at low prices.
