Why does my floor finish show a haze or look cloudy?

A cloudy haze on your floor finish can be caused by a number of things. Often when an autoscrubber or burnisher is used, small scratches can appear on the floor. Scratches like these are normally unnoticeable, but can stand out on dark tile flooring. It may take some time and careful examination to determine the cause of haze in your facility.

If you find that while using an autoscrubber or burnisher, it is quickly becoming caked with floor finish, you may have an issue with detergents. Always make sure that floor finish is applied with a clean mop and wringer. If the wringer has detergent on it, you will contaminate the floor finish before you even apply it. Detergent can also cause a problem when too much has been left on the floor from daily activities like mopping. Over time, the detergent can build up and cause a sticky residue that will not respond to buffing. The detergent will be ground into the floor finish and cause the floor to look hazy.

However, detergents aren’t the only sources that can contaminate floor finish. Dust mops may also cause buff haze. When you use pre-treated dust mops, always remember to air them out the night before you use them. Often pre-treated dust mops are saturated with oils that can seep into the floor finish and even onto the tiles themselves if you do not air dry your dust mops first.

When you begin to notice scratches in your floor finish, you may need to examine your daily cleaning practices more closely. Many things can cause scratches. Are you using the right floor finish? Buckeye’s Hard Floor Program has a variety of floor finishes that are customizable for your facility. Are you using the right floor pads at the right pressure? If a pad is too aggressive or too much pressure is applied, you may be inadvertently stripping off floor finish. Is the floor clean? Are the floor pads clean? If not, you may be grinding dirt further into the floor as you attempt to clean. The Buckeye Hard Floor Care Program includes extensive training and customer support that can help solve almost any flooring issue. With Buckeye’s Hard Floor Care Program, you can ensure products are being used correctly and customize you floor care program for your facility.

Buckeye Eco® All-Purpose Cleaner E11

Unfortunately, when your floor finish is compromised in this way, you will most likely need to deep scrub and remove a few layers of floor finish. To do this, use Buckeye Eco® All-Purpose Cleaner E11/S11, diluted at 4 ounces per gallon with a blue, soft pad. Then, reapply. Once you have done that, be sure to clean the new floor finish with soft padded autoscrubbers. When using autoscrubbers or burnishers, you may benefit from beginning with a softer pad and then later moving to a more aggressive pad.

Winter Conditions and Floor Finish Application

What should your facility’s temperature and humidity be to ensure successful floor finish application? Many temperature and humidity combinations can produce successful results, however, one strict limit to follow is that the air and floor must be at least 55°F.

Pay special attention to areas where it can be colder such as near exterior doors, or the freezer aisle. Also, consider instances when the floor finish is left inside a cold vehicle, and always allow the cold floor finish to warm to room temperature. Applying a cold floor finish to a warm floor (or vice versa) challenges the floor finish to form a proper film. This can cause lack of gloss, and the floor finish could easily powder causing durability issues. Your floor finish should be 55°F. To measure the floor temperature, place a thermometer on the floor and cover the bulb with a Styrofoam cup. After about 30 minutes, read the thermometer.

The Buckeye Hard Floor Care Program includes a comprehensive training for your staff to ensure that products are being used correctly and efficiently. This program is dedicated to providing the most extensive customer support that can help solve flooring issues even when the cause isn’t obvious. With Buckeye’s Hard Floor Care Program, you can customize the most successful floor care program for your facility.

Removing Ice Melt

Winter weather brings many concerns, including slippery floors. Most people put down ice melt to keep entrances safer for people to walk, and walk-off mats to trap ice, snow, water, and ice melt so that they do not get onto the hard surface flooring. Unfortunately, these contaminants do find their way into facilities. Fortunately, a thorough wet cleaning procedure can remove these contaminants from the floor and prevent damage!

floor-cleaners

To start, you need the proper products and procedures to be successful at removing ice melt. You need products that will dissolve and chemically suspend the ice melt salts to keep them from re-depositing onto the floor while mopping or auto-scrubbing. You should avoid natural soap products and some synthetic detergent-based products. They do not contain the chemical ingredients to chemically bind ice melt salts in solution and allow the salts to re-deposit onto the floor during the cleaning operation. Products such as Buckeye Blue All-Purpose Cleaner, Tenacity® All-Purpose Cleaner, Green Light Super Concentrated Floor Cleaner, True 7 pH Neutral Cleaner, Buckeye Eco® Floor Cleaner E32/S32, and Straight-Up® Neutral Cleaner all yield excellent results for removing ice melt. These products are designed to chemically suspend and dissolve ice melt salts and keep them in solution. This prevents them from re-depositing back onto the floor. You can learn more about these Buckeye® products and more here.

Removing ice melt isn’t the only tricky cleaning task that comes along with winter weather. You also need to adjust how you mop or auto-scrub floors. It is best to start away from outside entrances and work towards them. If you are mopping, change the cleaning solution often so as not to overload the cleaning solution with ice melt salts. By following this procedure, you will not spread ice melt residues over floor areas that might have been cleaner before you started. Cleaning during winter weather doesn’t have to be difficult if you have the proper products and procedures. Buckeye’s full line of products can help clean smooth or textured flooring. With Buckeye’s Hard Floor Care Program, you can customize the most successful floor care program for your facility. It helps you maintain your floors by using superior products that require less labor, increase efficiency, and produce excellent results.
