Polishing

Floor polishes are a maintenance coating that provide a shine or sheen to the floor. It will fill in micro-scratches and make them less noticeable. If your floors are looking dull or worn, it’s time to consider a coat of polish. Just don’t overdo it—you can polish your floor every 1 – 3 months.

 

Polishing actually removes the top layer of floor finish, removing nicks & scuffs. It gives more shine, more smooth surface & is longer lasting. Buffing is done either by hand or with a machine & it fills in nicks & scuffs with a buffing solution (often called ‘floor polish’) that’s buffed to a shine.
