Janitorial Supplies in MA: Extending the Life of Your Floor Pads

Banner Blog- Floor PadThe life of floor pads varies based on many factors, including how often a floor is polished or cleaned, how dirty it is, how fast the machine is running, how solid the floor finish is, and even the amount of experience the operator has. The majority of floor pads are tested to last a certain number of square feet under average conditions, but there are a few ways you can extend the life of your floor pads even further.
Proper Cleaning of Floor Pads

Floor pads should be cleaned after every use. Soaking the pads in a stripping or cleaning solution will break down their binders over time. Instead, give them a deep cleaning by just using hot water to remove finish and soils.

During the cleaning job, store used pads in a plastic bag to prevent finish or soil drying on them. Keep the pads moist until you are ready to clean them thoroughly.

Finally, you can extend the life of floor pads by using the right pad driving accessories on your machines. Using worn or improper devices causes the pad to move while in use, leading to damages.
